Sending things to our office

George has, in the past, been happy to sign books or memorabilia for fans who were willing to ship them to him. Unfortunately, in recent months, primarily due to the success of the HBO show, the volume of incoming items has gotten too high. This is primarily due to resellers who want to get George's signature on things they then sell on eBay or through other channels.

To put a stop to this so that it doesn't take up so much time, I'm implementing the following policy for signatures:

* Any package sent to this office that has not been pre-arranged with our office administrator at grrmbooks@gmail.com will be refused and returned unopened.

* Items unrelated to George's work will not be signed (yes, I'm talking to you guy who sent us a giant box of baseballs to be signed)

* All signature requests must include the name of the person for whom the item is being signed, and will be personalized at George's discretion. No sending us 20 books "just signatures please"

* If you are a book dealer looking for signatures for your store, contact the office administrator at the above email address and we'll see if we can help you.

If you're a legitimate fan that wants a book signed, please contact us and we'll help you arrange that. If you want George to sign a hundred book plates so you can sell them on eBay for grossly inflated prices, sorry, you're out of luck.

Hello, what email do i send a formal request to? Grrmbooks@georgerrmartin.com got kicked back with a failed to deliver message. I hope you don't mind me posting what i said here:

"I know you get a lot of signature requests. Is there a certain time of the year that would be easier to request a signing? I am going to replace my paperback SOFAI series with hard cover books for christmas. It would be amazing if they could be signed one day. I feel like his work has impacted my life in a positive way, and i'm hooked. I now am a "reader" when i could never finish a book in my life.

Anyway, please let me know what you think of my request. I am sure it is crazy times with HBO's season 3 coming out and all the pressure to complete Winds of Winter."
