Signing, Signing, Signing

I spent a goodly chunk of yesterday afternoon at the Jean Cocteau with pen in hand, signing books.

We'd sold out of our original stock of A KNIGHT OF THE SEVEN KINGDOMS, so we got a hundred more. I scrawled illegibly in all of them. I also signed copies of A GAME OF THRONES, A CLASH OF KINGS, A STORM OF SWORDS, A FEAST FOR CROWS, and A DANCE WITH DRAGONS, all of which are now available from the JCC in hardcover, trade paperback, and mass market. We were down to about three copies of the adult coloring book, so we got more of that one too, and a big stack of FEAST OF ICE AND FIRE, the official Westerosi cookbook. All of these can be found on the Signed Books page of the JCC website.

Of course, we also have a lot of great books in stock by the other writers who have visited us. Here are a few of those:

All these, and many many more titles, can be found at http://www.jeancocteaubooks.com/

Autographed books make great Christmas presents... but to be sure of getting your books by Christmas, it would be wise to order now.

Knight Of The Seven Kingdoms Signed - Sold out?

When you click buy now on A Knight Of The Seven Kingdoms, it still says the items have sold out. Will this be updated, or have the signed copies sold out again? I'm trying to get a copy for my brother for Christmas. Thanks :)

Re: Knight Of The Seven Kingdoms Signed - Sold out?
I was wondering the same thing. Tried to ask about this myself yesterday, but I think my comment got lost in the shuffle of linking my Facebook to LiveJournal.

Saw what you wrote about the refugees. Glad to know your heart is as good as your writing. Hope you have a wonderful holiday season and take your time with Winds, real fans will be there waiting.

Shipping to Canada
On the website, I don't see the option to ship to Canada. Is this something that's being considered for the near future?

Re: Shipping to Canada
I really hope so! Hate for us Canadians to be left out of this awesomeness!

Good evening Mr.Martin,
Do you have any sites currently selling signed copies of "A Game of Thrones" that ship to Canada? I noticed Jean Cocteau Books doesn't ship to us.

RE: Canada
If you email them direct they can make arrangements for International shipping.

Letter to Santa
Dear Mr. Santa,

I want you to know I´ve been very good this year. I don´t have too many wishes, just get me one of those autographed books, because the homepage won´t let me order it myself. Even if it´s a long journey across the Atlantic, I´m sure Rudolph and his friends can get you there and back again.
Also, I would like to have "Winds of Winter" for next Christmas, no need for an autograph on this one.

Re: Letter to Santa
Alas, we still have not found an answer for international shipping.

I really liked the "Half a ... " Series by Abercrombie. Pat, George, Joe, and Jim are my Fantasy Beatles.

Must keep that hand strong. You may be signing thousands of books in a few months.... ;)

To mix things up, you can always try signing your name in languages that don't use the Latin alphabet. Wikipedia informs me your Chinese name is 喬治·瑞蒙·李察·馬丁, for example.

Good luck with that. And get some rest, good sir. :)

I read the LJ alert in my inbox as "Singing, singing, singing"...I would pay good, good money to hear you sing songs inspired by your books (perhaps stuff like...the songs from the Hobbit cartoon, but having the lyrics changed to portray GoT events. Or classic rock songs that sound particularly like conflicts of the seven kingdoms)

I only sing old TV theme songs. And only when very drunk at cons.

You must have
an enormous number of signed books in circulation. Case in point; I recently purchased a first edition of The Armageddon Rag online and surprise - it ends up being a signed copy. A very nice bonus and addition to my collection of your work.

We across the not so narrow sea in England would love a chance to purchase these.

Shipping to Europe
Seems like Europe is still not a shipping option. Any plans to change that in the future? Would love to buy some signed stuff.

"Knight..." Sold Out Again Already?
Since I missed out on the initial availability of the signed copies of "Knight..." (they sold out so quickly), I have been checking the theater's site daily waiting for it to be available again, and I just saw that you signed more copies so I quickly went to the site and saw that it still indicates they are sold out. Is this due to the second batch selling out again quickly too, or has the site just not been activated yet? I went to the actual link to purchase and when I attempt to purchase a copy it says they are unavailable.

George, can you please explain to me what I'm missing in the prologue of Feast? After reading the book 6 times I just can't understand what even happened. I feel really stupid as I've always considered myself a pretty clever person.

Re: prologue
I don't know what requires explanation... but in any case, I prefer the text to speak for itself.

You might take your question to Westeros or Tower of the Hand, and let some other readers weigh in.
