Books for Xmas

Every year, come the holiday season, we get a lot of orders for the signed books offered on my website: http://www.georgerrmartin.com/books.html

The biggest rush is in early and mid-December, from readers planning to use the books as Christmas gifts. Often the buyers send extra money for priority mail, to make sure the books arrived by Christmas.

And that's all great. Usually.



But this year, it's not going to work. I am heading east the first couple of weeks of December, for reasons I cannot disclose yet, so I won't be here to sign books or ship them. And when I return, mid-month, I'm going to be too busy digging out from under and doing my own holiday shopping to deal with orders.



Accordingly, we'll be closing the "bookstore" on December 1. It will not reopen until the new year, after the holidays.

So if anyone out there is thinking of giving an autographed title of one of my old books as a Christmas present, please place your order in the next two weeks.



Thanks. (And happy reading and happy holidays to all).

Is it Ringo on the last one? I'd love to read it :)

George, I am pretty sure you are already aware of it, but just in case - have you considered donating some of your extra books to Patrick Rothfuss' annual Worldbuilders charity benefiting the Heifer Project? He has done a fantastic job administering it (raised over $285k last year) and I am sure some signed stuff from you would draw some big donations.

Just a thought.

Re: Worldbuilders
Thanks for the suggestion.

I donate signed books to a dozen different causes, along with the official charity of all the cons I attend.... but I have plenty, so that's cool. I will check out Patrick's effort.
