autographed copies

For a personally inscribed and autographed copy of any of my books, contact my fantabulous local bookstore, Malaprop’s.

Just shoot them an email or give them a call at (828) 254-6734 and you can talk to a real, live person! Tell them how you would like your book(s) inscribed. They will get me in to sign, and your autographed book will be shipped out lickety-split.

You’ll be supporting a wonderful indie bookstore in the process and keeping more money in the hands of hardworking small businesses and all the folks they employ. It’s the friendly—and eco-friendly—way to go!
