Current Virtual Signings

The Wicked King by Holly Black (ends December 28th)
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION BEFORE ORDERING FROM OUR VIRTUAL SIGNINGS

- If you order from multiple signings at once, your books will be shipped when the last signing ends. If you want your books to ship as they are released, please order them separately and pay appropriate shipping.

- Please double check to be sure you are ordering the correct book. Once the signing has ended and an order has been placed with the bookstore, we cannot change your order.

- We cannot be expected to notice if you accidentally order twice. If you think you have ordered but aren't sure, feel free to email us and we will check for you. Refunds will NOT be issued if you notice after the refund deadline has passed.

- Books will be signed around the author's schedule, therefore, we cannot *always* ship your order the day the book releases. This is a fluid process that will vary from signing to signing.

ATTENTION ALL NEW YORKERS!!

Hey Everybody!!

So I wanted to tell you about this crazy, exciting, wonderful Film Festival that's going to be happening in NYC the weekend of February 11-13th.



As most of you know - we women get shafted - A LOT! We still get paid less than men, have trouble getting into top positions at corporations, and no matter how much of a Superwoman we are, we never get the recognition we deserve! Come on, tell me you don't know how that feels.

Well, the same goes for women in film. In 2010, for the first time in history, a woman won the Oscar for best director. In 82 years, only 4 women have ever been nominated for best director, and only a single woman has won.

In 2009, in the 250 top-grossing domestic films, women made up only 7% of directors, 8% of writers, and 17% of executive producers. 98% of these films had no female cinematographers. And, in front of the camera, as of 2007, women had less than 30% of the speaking roles.

So the Athena Film Festival is set to dole out some recognition!! To show the women in the film industry that we value them, cherish them, love their work and want to showcase it to the world!!

Check out the festival's website at: www.athenafilmfestival.com

Tickets are ON SALE now - and they're cheap!! Only $10 per movie. Or, if you pay $50 for a pass, you can see as many movies as you want - and can get in before everyone else! Check it out :)
