A Classic Gail Carriger Event: Sumage Solution Launch at Borderlands

Well, hello my darling Gentle Reader. I thought you might like to see what a classic me-event looked like. Here is what happened at Borderlands the weekend before last for the Launch of The Sumage Solution.

The Display

All the pretty books set out for sale including my novellas, my very first book, and my most recent book. Borderlands is always good about guessing what other book of mine attendees might want to buy.

Also I signed everything that was left over (which, frankly, wasn’t a whole lot) so if you want anything signed now is the time to ping them: 888-893-4008 or email office@borderlands-books.com

The Event

I was a little late due to traffic, bustled in and posed a bit so the outfit could be captured for posterity. (Terribly important.) I often forget to take fashion pictures so remembering to do so is rather exciting. You can see my post all about the fashion details on Retro Rack. TK

Since I do events at Borderlands pretty regularly, Jude (manager and all around super-star) didn’t bother to introduce me, I just introduced myself. And dove right into the Q&A. OK not right in…

First, Jude brought up a lovely tray of tea for me. They stock Assam pure leaf ‘specially for me. (Or I like to pretend that they do it for me.)

Which meant I was then chatting while drinking tea. (Much was remarked upon my coordinating pink with the Borderlands’ curtains.)

In case you hadn’t guessed my events are pretty casual and friendly. Generally, I answer a few questions (from myself) to start, things I know people want to hear, and then the audience starts asking. My readers are always a great group and lots of fun. And yes, I do talk about stuff in person that I can’t talk about online.

People line up to get stuff signed.

And I signed stuff.

And talked too much. Afterwards it was time for a few photo ops.

This is one of my favorites: An editor and her authors! That’s my developmental editor, Sue Brown-Moore, in the middle with me & Lea Kirk author of Prophecy.

The Sumage Solution Launch Party At Borderlands in San Francisco

Tomorrow I’ll be doing something fun, Gentle Reader. It’s the kind of thing I can only do with an indie book. I’m having a launch party before the book is officially on sale.

I know, right? But… I CAN.

(Insert evil laugh here.)

For those of you in the Bay Area, here are the details…

Early Borderlands Gets The Book

July 15, 2017, 3pm
Sumage Solution Launch Event at Borderlands Books
Call ahead to reserve a signed copy (yes they’ll ship so you’ll get it ASAP, and yes I will dedicate it to your or to a friend or to an elder god, you know, whatever you want):

888-893-4008

The book will be available to buy (at this event ONLY) three days BEFORE official release. And yes I’ll be signing there, if you are coming to the event.

If the book isn’t enough of a draw, I’ll be there nattering away at the Borderlands Cafe where they have lovely nibbles and delicious tea. I know this about the tea because they asked me which kind I recommend. And now they stock it. This is how awesome they are.

Borderlands is a truly wonderful little independent bookstore, even if you can’t make my event you should make them one of your stops if you’re ever in San Francisco.

9 Reasons Audiobook Growth Is Soaring

Freadom Library says of Manners & Mutiny:

“I think this book is a great way to finish it off. It had all the things I loved about the previous books but it was also filled with twists and turns that blew me away. The action was on point, specially [sic] precarious in this one.”
