THE RITHMATIST Book Tour + Signed Copies

My YA fantasy novel THE RITHMATIST comes out on May 14th in the US/Canada, and May 23rd in UK/Commonwealth countries. (Read the prologue and first five chapters here.)

This book tour's stops are listed at the bottom of this post, and included are a bunch of cities I haven't visited on any recent tour. Also, I'm not doing a midnight release at BYU this year. Instead, the release will be Tuesday evening in New York at Books of Wonder (see below). I will number copies at the New York release.

But since I can't visit every city where my readers live, I like to set up a signing-by-mail so you can still get a signed book. (UPDATE: SOLD OUT!) For this release Weller Book Works is limiting the amount of copies to 200, which I will number (starting at 101).

Due to a bit of a delay in organizing things this time, the books might arrive at your door a couple of days after the release date. Details from Weller Book Works are as follows:

  • Customers need to order the books via email sent to books@wellerbookworks.com (no telephone orders)
    • Email should include name, billing address, shipping address if different, phone number, how the book should be signed.
    • WBW will reply with a paypal invoice that can be paid with a paypal account or credit card #.
    • We will respond to orders in the order they were received. Numbers will be assigned when payments are made and will likewise be the order in which they were received.
  • Price is 20% off for prepaid orders. Book total is $14.39 plus tax (if applicable) and shipping/handling charges (if you don't pick it up in the store).
  • Books will be shipped in a USPS Priority Mail padded envelope. Shipping costs:
    • US: $6.50 (3–5 days)
    • Canada & Mexico: $22.00 (6–10 days)
    • All other international: $25.00 (6–10 days)
  • Orders must be made and prepaid by May 3 to qualify for discount.
  • Offer good while supplies last (SOLD OUT!) or until May 3.
  • Limit 1 copy per customer
  • Due to the short timeline for this promotion, we can't guarantee the book's arrival by its release date.

Once Weller Book Works runs out of copies (NOW SOLD OUT!), the next best way to get a signed copy of the book is to contact one of the tour stores and ask them if they can get a copy signed and ship it to you. Many of them will be able to do so.
