Cat on a Hot Book PlateJune 23rd, 2010 at 18:08
I went by my post box today to pick up the June issue of Locus and to hope vainly that maybe my just-shipped copy of The Demon’s Covenant by Sarah Rees Brennan might have miraculously arrived already (it hadn’t).
What I found instead was even more exciting – a box full of my very own bookplates!
These were designed for me by the marvellous and multi-talented Rowena Cory Daniells (whose own trilogy King Rolen’s Kin is due out from Solaris in a month or so) – I like particularly that it reflects the colours and style of my Creature Court website, but of course also the black cat who represents Ashiol, one of Power and Majesty’s many anti-heroes.
If anyone would like a signed book plate to personalise their copy of Power and Majesty, and/or for a friend, or if they have a use for a larger number of bookplates – like if you work for a bookshop – please send me an email at email@example.com, or DM/tweet me on Twitter at @tansyrr to let me know how many you need/what names to sign them to if any, and also a postal address (apparently you can’t DM me unless I follow you, so email may be best option for most).
I’m happy to post bookplates anywhere in the world, though I’m not sure if any actual copies of the book have made it outside Australasia yet – let me know if you’re a non Aussie/New Zealander who has managed to secure a copy and let me know how you did it! I haven’t heard of any successful purchases from online booksellers yet and would love to be able to recommend some that can provide actual copies to o/s readers.
