I’m doing a single event in June… on June 20th, at 7PM, I’ll be at Water Street Books, in Exeter, New Hampshire, to interview Rio Youers about his spectacular supernatural thriller, The Forgotten Girl (additional details here). Rio has been knocking around in the small press world for over a decade, but Forgotten Girl is his first mainstream release with a major publisher. If you’ve been hunting for a feverishly paced, furiously tense, and often hilarious summer read, your search is over.
I’m so excited for people to discover The Forgotten Girl that we’re running a special offer at the event. Show up, buy a copy of the novel, and pick up Rio’s autograph while you’re at it. The first 50 people in line for Rio’s signature will be handed a signed copy of one of my comics.
A few notes and provisos:
I’ll be there for the conversation, but when we move to the autographing stage of the evening, I’m out the door. This is Rio’s signing, not mine; I won’t be signing copies of my books. Don’t ask, because I’ll have to say no and make us both feel bad.
The signed comic giveaway is limited to one issue per buyer. If you buy a dozen copies of The Forgotten Girl, that would make you awesome, but you’d still only get one comic. You don’t get to pick which signed comic you get – that’s up to Rio, who will be in charge of the stack. It’ll be a random mess of titles (Locke & Key, The Cape, Wraith, etc.) so there’s no way to guess which one you’ll be handed.
Finally, unexpectedly, frustratingly – the 20th is also the night of the Exeter Classic Bike Race. The road directly in front of the bookstore will be closed to drivers and it won’t be possible to park at the store. We all only just found out about the race. The event is happening all the same. Park in the nearby municipal lot and we’ll see you there.
