About Signed Books

Books are signed after the author event. If you are attending the event, you will be provided with an unsigned copy and may wait in the signing line for the author's signature. Many past events also have small quantities remaining of signed stock. Please feel free to contact us to confirm stock status. First edition / first printings are sometimes, but not always, available. Indicate in the "Order Comments" box that you want a signed copy and any other preferences. 

If you are not attending the event, you may pre-order signed books from our upcoming in-store events calendar at least 48 hours in advance of the author's appearance. Also, add a personalization name request below, if desired. We will hold pre-purchased books until the author signing and then ship or hold them for pick-up, as you prefer. Advance requests do receive preferential treatment by our staff. If you are interested in obtaining a signed book from an event occurring tonight or tomorrow, please contact us to ensure that we receive your order in time.
