Mistborn One For Sale!
« on: January 03, 2008, 04:56:59 AM »
We've just updated the store to finally begin selling signed, personalized copies of MISTBORN.  They're going for $20 right now as a sale, and we'll up them to $25 next month.  They'll stay there until the stock starts to dwindle, and then I'll probably raise it up to the cover price.

Anyway, I know a lot of readers have asked me if I'd ever be doing this.  I thought I'd make a forum thread to let those who visit here, but don't often check my site, know that the sales are up and running.

Also, I have a request.  We needed to put a section on that allows someone to give me signing instructions, so I can know what name to write in the book.  (If any.)  We THINK we got it on right.  If anyone here is thinking of buying copies of the book, would you post here if you were able to find the signing instructions box?  Thanks!

All Ready Ordered My Copy :D
I also sent an e-mail saying I didn't see a comment box and just e-mailed my signing request. Hope that was ok.

Okay, I'm going to have to eat a lot of mac and cheese over the next few weeks to try and save up before the month ends.

Will you be doing this for Well of Ascension as well? Also, does this include Canada [or international in general] or is it US only? I'll even pay you in Canadian dollars if you'd like. :P

We have shipping options for Canada, and Paypal will do the currency conversion for you.

Whether we'll do this with other books depends on several factors, one of which is how well this MB1 books sell.

Just ordered a copy!

I do hope that I will be able to buy the other books this way as well!

Well, it was like a sign for above, for this book.

I had lost mine, recently. Usually it happens during major project week or finals week, or just major stress week for me. I leave things everywhere. Pens, pencils, textbooks, binders, Mistborn.

I was really sad.

And I've been waiting to buy another one, holding off, really.

I dunno what I want you to sign on mine. I'll email you, I think. Mine is a very stupid email. [email protected]. So expect one.

Probably something that the kid who speaks funny says.

Damn, forgot his name.

The tin guy?
I want to be a publisher at Tor Fantasy when I grow up.

YAY

Hmmmm...I wonder if I can convince my wife to let me purchase a copy.  It's for a good cause, right?

The T-Shirts are up, but we haven't done a full launch for them.  I want to actually post pictures up so you can see what's on them, then put up better descriptions.  We'll do an official launch on them eventually.

yeah, the pictures would be a great idea. From the main shop page I have to follow three or four links to see a picture big enough to understand what I'm getting.
