I'm back from my 10-day tour of Texas (and met SO many wonderful readers like this lovely lady, Debbie!). But it came to my attention in conversations with them that MANY readers have no clue what my "virtual" book signing is all about. (Don't feel bad--I didn't know what one was either, until my assistant Leagh told me about the ones J.R. Ward and Donna Grant do and I decided I just must do one, too!)
While the initial dates for my signing have expired, I've decided to extend it through Monday, March 11, so that no one who wants a PERSONALIZED signed copy of any of my books mailed to them (anywhere it's allowed in the world) will miss out. Other than at live personal appearances and signings, I won't be signing personalized copies again from online orders until Somebody's Angel comes out in paperback, which probably won't be until fall 2013.
I have a full Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document at my virtual signing page, but some of the info is out-dated now. Still, you can check it out here: full FAQ at my Virtual Signing Web site. Here are a couple Q&As, though (slightly edited):
What is a Virtual Signing?A virtual signing is a way for you to get a personalized signed copy of a Rescue Me book when you are unable to attend any of Kallypso Masters’s in-person signings or just don't want to wait for one of those. You will order the book using the order form on this page at Kally's Web site, indicate how you would like the book inscribed, and then Kally will sign and ship it out to you as soon as possible. (Please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery of your copy due to Kally's travel and writing schedule--and your location.)
If I miss this virtual signing, will there be another?Yes, Kally probably will accept online orders for personalized signed books twice a year. Unlike some authors, because she's self-published and her books are print-on-demand, Kally can make ALL of her books available during each virtual signing--not just the latest release. The next virtual signing won't be scheduled until a new trade paperback is released (anticipated to be about 3-4 months after the e-book version of that book is released).
Be sure to check Kally's personal appearances schedule to see if she'll be doing an in-person signing near you this year, though. The schedule is always changing because she also loves to travel and to meet readers face-to-face!
For those who want a signed copy without personal inscription, she will be opening her Kally Swag online store in late March 2013, accessed via a link on her Web site. In addition to apparel and paper swag items, she'll also make available generically inscribed, signed copies of her available paperback books there.
Virtual Signing Extended to Monday, March 11!
So, if you'd like me to inscribe a book to you OR to a friend or family member, just fill out the order form, submit your payment (or request an invoice for international and large orders), and I'll get the books signed and sent as soon as possible. You'll probably have the book in under four weeks because it looks like my supplies of books on hand will hold out.
Now, back to work on Somebody's Angel! I got past the 50,000-word point last night. Hope to get to the halfway point within the next couple weeks!
