San Juan Island Public Library; AltLib Bookstore, Bellingham

Find it on these shelves!

Chapter-plate hardcover of book 1, Fire On All Sides on the New Fiction rack up front at the San Juan Island Public Library in the town of Friday Harbor. Bottom shelf facing, third from left. Sharing uptime with Assassin’s Fate & The Book of Joan, both authors whom I have met. Thanks, town of long residence where I live! I hope people will enjoy it and feel free to tell me how they liked it.

(Signed) Paperback volumes of Fire On All Sides are now available for sale at the Alternative Library bookstore in Bellingham, WA. As of picture, far right upper, that’s left corner shelf by the doorway – sharing space with A Language Older Than Words & Promethea, something near and something dear.

Free Shelf, Signed

In the greater Seattle area, there are now a few signed & bookmarked (with very slightly off-kilter covers) copies of Fire On All Sides on free bookshelves.

One at the little library on 26th & Norman, next to Amy Tan.

Two at the Everett Transit Station free bookshelf (with dedications to the station), on two separate shelves – between Johnathan Strange & Mr. Norrell (having recently attended The Raven King’s Ball), and Honor to the Queen, and Michael Crichton’s Congo (greatly enjoyed in middle school) and Carlos Castaneda. At first I thought of titling this book “The Fire Within”, then learned that was a Castaneda title. Very well, Don Juan… very well then, let us be neighbors.

Also, I will be working live on my (unrelated) mixed media art series, Passengers, as posted on serial/surreal, at the Seattle event Mythical Creatures: Forest of Dreams on October 28, featuring Kalya Scintilla, Desert Dwellers, Whitebear, Sixis, Drumspyder, and more! I’ll have a few books to sell there, some chapter art prints, and who knows what else.
