Irish Launch of the Demon's Covenant

'Sarah,' you may say unto me. 'All of this American and London business is very fine. But what about the country of your origin and indeed residence? What about IRELAND? Why are you not launching Demon's Covenant there?'

The answer is... I am!

And, even though the Demon's Covenant is not technically out in the UK and Ireland until May 27th (nine days after the US's May 18th, but these things are fluid) there will be Special Early Copies on sale at this event, May 13th. My first event for the Demon's Covenant!

Eason Bookshop
O'Connell Street
Thursday, 13 May
6-9pm.

And there is more! I will be appearing with Patrick Ness, the awesome author of The Knife of Never Letting Go and The Ask and The Answer.

So, a two-for-one! I always think events with more than one author are the most fun... probably because then everyone is not STARING AT ME. Also because it is a pleasure to appear with awesome authors, and talk about their excellent books.

The event is going to be super fancy. There is going to be a band.

It's ticketed, and the way Eason's seems to do it is by entering into a draw here. Or you probably also give the store a call for more details (01 858 3800).

Or, really, just come along on the night. I highly doubt anyone will be turned away! (There is going to be a BAND!)

And I have another US tour date to announce with Ms Holly Black.

Sunday, May 23
BARNES & NOBLE
Stonebriar Center Mall
Frisco, TX 75034
2:00 PM

I hope to see people! In Ireland! Or in Frisco! You want a postcard for either, pop your address here.

The book is coming out really soon now (and the US paperback of The Demon's Lexicon comes out in four days). It all starts to seem real! I hope people will like it! I can't wait to talk about the book with readers. I feel a bit dizzy.

... Or possibly, that is this flu. Off to drink hot orange juice and honey, to be well for events!

Orange juice and honey? Together? ...does that taste good? *is skeptical*

Feel better! I would love to be at your events, but alas your publisher is cruel and isn't BRINGING YOU TO NEW YORK CITY. *weeps*

Any more details on your Dallas, TX appearance? Is there a definite date and location yet? That is most likely the one I shall be going to, either that or Frisco! I'm so excited! A friend and I are road tripping it from Oklahoma for the event! :D

The Dallas event is off, I'm afraid, as I think they were worried we would not bring a crowd! I think of the Frisco event as replacing it - I'm sorry if this makes your road trip (awesome! I am so flattered!) more difficult in consequence.

I just had a very suddenly feeling of "ohimigod, it's SOON!" It feels like we've been waiting so long I kinda forgot that I would actually get it eventually!

Was there an April cookie I have missed btw?

AND, I just realised that I have totally failed to email you RE: naming a character in Talisman. Can I still do that, or has the offer expired?

I have the same feeling! Eeek, I hope people will like it. And that Team Seb still appeals once you know him better. ;)

You can still do it. ;)

And April cookie is here: http://sarahtales.livejournal.com/163238.html#cutid1

ooooh! are you ever going to do a book launch in Australia?
sarahtales
Apr. 24th, 2010 01:55 am (UTC)
I'd like to very much, I have never been to Australia, but like a vampire, I have to be invited to do book events. ;)

I've been passing out The Demons Lexicon (still haven't seen it in stores here) like confectionery -and I hand out a lot of candy, my friends make dire remarks about inducing diabetes- and they are all very taken by it and most grateful that they do not have to wait a year for the next to come out. Alas I cannot make it to your Irish events, but maybe next year I will still be in your lovely country and can attend the release of the third. I hope the drink resolves any flu related dizziness, if it also assists with reality related dizziness please let us know.

Woohoo! Book signings. Neither of those are in England though, awww. I can't tell you how excited I am for Demon's Covenant. I've already asked Waterstones to call me as soon as they get it in since last year they had it earlier than the official release date, hehe. Congrats on 'finishing' the 3rd book too!

Well, I have my London movie event, and more news about English stuff to follow!

And I second the suggestion of an Australian trip. Especially Brisbane (because everyone goes to Melbourne and Sydney, it's so passé :-) )

I'm really looking forward to the next book, I can't believe it's nearly May already.

Also, Olive Leaf Extract. The caspsule form, not the liquid, as it tastes like crud. They work wonders for colds and flus, they help you heal quicker, and take the edge off.

Yay, Irish launch \o/

This gives me something to look forward to in the bleak run up to the dreaded leaving cert.

Oh, you poor thing. I remember that runup. Tell me you're the one looking at it, and I will give you a Secret Thing at the event.
