Signed Books at the JCC

The illustrated anniversary hardcover edition of A GAME OF THRONES is scheduled for release on October 18. They will be available across the nation from your favorite local bookstore or online bookseller.

We also expect to have a couple hundred for sale the Jean Cocteau Cinema Bookstore, and available by mail order. And those will be signed (my manager twisted my arm). ((Sorry, no personalizations or inscriptions, just straight signatures)).

To preorder, go to http://www.jeancocteaubooks.com/bookstore/a-game-of-thrones-the-illustrated-edition-pre-order/?ct=t(061220156_12_2015)&mc_cid=5a7419c5bb&mc_eid=78a442bf0c

We also have on hand RIGHT NOW some autographed hardcovers of the latest Wild Cards book for Tor, HIGH STAKES. These are signed by yours truly, and by John J. Miller, one of the writers.

Of course, ALL the books sold by the JCC are autographed by the authors, so we also have many other titles available signed. Here are a few of them:

To check out the full list, go to http://www.jeancocteaubooks.com/

And happy reading.

Definitely my favourite online bookseller!
Already placed my second international order, including the anniversary GoT, and keep recommending JCC to my friends. Even though shipping isn't cheap, it balances out considering the price of books in general in Norway.

Illustrated Editions of Each Book
Saw in your previous post that you were planning to release an enhanced iBook edition of A GAME OF THRONES. I was curious whether you would follow suit to release illustrated editions of each book in the series in the future? Have really enjoyed Gary Gianni's illustrations for A KNIGHT OF THE SEVEN KINGDOMS, and I'd love to see what Mr. Gianni, Magali Villenueve, Marc Simonetti, Marc Fishman and others can do with iconic scenes like Blackwater, the Red Wedding, the Blackfish and Jaime at Riverrun or Daznak's Pit. (Some of them have done artwork on these scenes already, but it'd be lovely to have this incorporated into future editions)

Re: Illustrated Editions of Each Book
If the anniversary edition of A GAME OF THRONES does well, Bantam will probably follow with anniversary editions of A CLASH OF KINGS (in 2019) and A STORM OF SWORDS (in 2020). Suitably illustrated.

Present 😍
I just sent my husband the link because Christmas is coming (and shipping to Germany takes a while ) 😉

Re: Present 😍
Oh no, I saw this last night and was already making a shopping list ;) BUT: now, I looked through the book and I think you don't ship to Germany, right? Only to APO but my husband fortunately (!) left the AirForce, so we only have a German address.....

Magic One
Hello George,

Though you mentioned all will have your signature. If you really want to sell them, say one randomly will have a paragraph of prose from an unread chapter.

Here to help you sell.

Actually a Willie Wonka style Magic Ticket to proof read you next book one month early would likely make a charity a lot of money... Not from me mind you, but I would be tickled for the fun of it.

`Stranger Things
Hey George,

Have you seen Stranger Things?

I'll be ordering one!
I've always wondered how successful authors sign so many books! Signing them has to be the most monotonous thing in the world!

I participated in an audio study during college in which I used earphones to listen to the voices of four people repeating the same lines over and over (and I used a computer/mouse to rate each line for clarity). I did this for more than eight hours over two days. Some participants fell asleep. Others got up after a couple of hours and left without getting paid.

I imagine that signing books has to be just as tedious and boring. Of course, we certainly appreciate it! We buy the signed books, place them on our shelves, show them off to friends and family and plan on leaving them to loved ones.

So, thank you for the sacrifice! I hope that you're watching football or listening to something wonderful to help pass that time!

"Mongrels" is so so so fucking great. Stephen Graham Jones was my Clarion West instructor and he was terrifying and amazing.

Neil Gaiman stuff
Just a reminder to people who aren't "in the know": GRRM still does book signings, although rarely, so if you're one of those quirky people (like me) who wants to watch the author actually sign the book, you can still get a book (usually only one) signed at a con signing. Neil Gaiman, on the other hand, does few (if any) signings anymore, so that's something to think about. When his next book, Norse Mythology, comes out early next year, I expect that the JCC will be the only place (if there are any) that has signed copies.

Re: Neil Gaiman stuff
Actually, we can't be sure we will have signed copies of NORSE MYTHOLOGY... that all depends on when (and if) Neil next visits Santa Fe again. He's a travelin' man, y'know.

Hello, George.
Do you have a routine for writing? Or you write then when inspiration comes ?

I'm start writing short novels, but i can't do with routines, what you do to get inspiration ?

Oct. 8th, 2016 10:26 pm (UTC)
Very nice visuals ;) And by the way first time I ever come on your "Not a Blog", it looks pretty interesting and quite simple at the same time.

Oh and, thanks to your writings and everything, I discovered Scott Lynch's work, so thank you for making me know him (I already knew Joe Abercrombie and others). In the meantime, I wonder : would you recommand to young writers to publish their books, in the first place, in United States or in England ?

Congratulations for keeping writing - answering - AND everything ! Can't wait to have the last Game of Thrones books editions :)

Excellent. Just pre ordered my copy of the 20th anniversary edition of A Game of Thrones. Really looking forward to re reading it and looking at the new illustrations.

Re: Persian translation of your books
We've had a few inquiries from publishers in Iran, which I have forwarded to my foreign rights agent for follow up. However, I do not believe that any of them has resulted in a deal yet.

I am hopeful that we will have something in the future.

Talking about books, what was your inspiration for "writing" the Seven Pointed Star? I picture it like something between I-ching and The Bible, hope you actually write it one fine day as a reference book, kind of like The World of Ice & Fire.

To keep this message on-subject, I'll start by saying I'm looking forward to a similar release for A Feast for Crows.

In that book, you wrote about Brienne standing in Lord Tarly's tent as he blamed her for any potential sexual assault that might befall her. In the past few days, I've been more shocked than I ought to be to see that people still agree with that argument. If you had been in that tent or any other room where that argument is being made, what would you say?
