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.

Video interview w/ Veronica Rossi, Anna Carey & Tahereh Mafi + Giveaway!




Hey GCReaders!

On Sunday, April 15th, Maria, Wanda and I attended the Spring into the Future event at Books of Wonder in New York City, which featured authors Veronica Rossi, Anna Carey, Tahereh Mafi, and special guest Lauren Oliver.

They answered some questions for everyone and signed lots of books. After the signing, they hung out a bit and sat down with us while we filmed a small interview to share with you all. Unfortunately, Lauren Oliver wasn't able to stay for the video interview. However, we did manage to snag a signed copy of Pandemonium. :-)

We had a great time! Anna, Veronica and Tahereh are super, super nice and they are hilarious! They would make a great team if they got together and wrote a book.

Here are some photos of that night...


Maria, Wanda and Me!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I love it...but it makes me a little jealous that I wasn't there with you guys!

    ReplyDelete

  13. Loved the video chat! It was great to hear them talk about their books. It is so much better than to just read about it. Also, I kinda want Tahereh's shoes! Thanks for the giveaway!! :)

  16. I love Mafi's shoes and the video interview was so cool!

    ReplyDelete
  17. The video of the interview is awesome! At least we get to feel like we've been there too (although we're far away); we get to hear and see the authors, hear how they answer the questions and interact with readers like you. more please!:)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Great video! I'm pretty much jealous of you guys for getting to do this. :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. That interview looked like so much fun! I almost went to one of their stops, and now I really wish I had! I'd love to see more interviews like that!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I loved the interview! I think it's really nice of them to do a side interview with you girls, it felt really cozy and informative. I liked the questions you girls asked too! I've never been to a book tour or stop before and it seems like these ladies got along really well, and that makes the experience for you and for us watching this interview that much more enjoyable. :)

  21. The video interview is great! You can do more but still do the written interviews too!

  22. Video interviews are always best. I just like to see how the authors express themselves verbally; it kind of brings out a different facet of them, since we all only know them from their books, twitter and occasional blog posts.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I loved the video! That is so awesome that you guys got to sit down & do a real live interview with them! I liked the questions too (like how they came about writing a dystopian)! It's cool to see a little bit more of their personality in live interviews vs. written. It would be pretty sweet if you guys did get to do these more often!

  24. On the one hand, it's really cool to get to see bloggers and authors in person chatting. It's way better than just reading the answers, because you can get an even better sense of people's personality.

    On the other hand, I can't watch them at work, so I might just forget to do it, you know? I can always read something!

    ReplyDelete
  25. The video was pretty awesome! I love live interviews and I actually prefer video interviews than reading them because it's more visual (obviously :)) The only downside is that I read blog posts while I'm in class but I can't put in earphones during class to watch the videos. But they're still awesome :)

  26. I love video interviews! I'm always excited when I see one. You definitely should do more. Thanks for the amazing giveaway.

  28. I loved it. i think if you get the chance to do it again you should. :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. These video interviews are a GREAT idea - for those of us stuck in B.F.E. far, far away from all the wonderful author events, - it's almost as good as being there in person!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  30. Like everyone, I really enjoyed the video interview. I would love to see more interviews like this. I loved the responses by all three authors when asked to describe their books in six words. Tahereh Mafi's (and now I know how to pronounce her name) platform boots are pretty awesome! You guys asked great questions! Great job! Thank you for this wonderful giveaway! ^_^

  35. I like it. It's so awesome that you got to sit down and talk with the authors. I think it's a good idea to mix it up and do written interviews and some video interviews.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I loved the interview and would love for you to do more. I also love the intro song it's one of my favorites right now. LOL!!

  37. Very nice interview and I'm sorry I missed the event. (I live in Brooklyn) This giveaway is a biggie... I hope I can get lucky.

  40. So on your video, I thought it was interesting since you giuys filmed them talking about their books and characters, and how it all worked together with that. I'd say yeah, go ahead and make more videos like this one if you have time. XD

    ReplyDelete
  41. Loved the video. it would awesome if there was more with other of the amazing authors out there. thx for the great giveaway also

    ReplyDelete
  42. The idea of the video is cute. And I realize it was three authors at one time but 14 min is a big chunk of time in one sitting. I wouldn't mind it in 5 min intervals. I did enjoy it though I had sometimes had to listen closely to block out the backround noise. thanks for the awesome giveaway!! I don't mean to be rude or disrespectful just answering your question. I hate posting anything negative.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I really liked the video interview. To be able to have 3 authors on at one time is a tremendous coup. There is so much information to pass along and still it never gets boring.
    I think you should make it a regular feature. I'd watch 'em.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I like the video interview but the only thing that stinks is most of the time my internet is not fast enough to watch them.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I think this form of interview is fascinating. I love seeing all the participants and hearing the q&a.

    You all did a great job.

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I have trouble watching the interview, but I love that you guys are sharing the book signing. I've never been to one and would probably be so excited, I would make frequent trips to the girls room.

    ReplyDelete
  47. So awesome! I think I like the video interviews better. It feels more personal. :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. cool interview! very fun and i would watch another one if you did it.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love interviews, but perhaps for those of us that have a hard time with videos you could include a brief type of transcript. It was a little laggy for me (not your fault, but my internet).

  50. The video interview was great! I think you should do more in the future. Thanks for the giveaway :)

  51. The interview was awesome! It was awesome that you met them! I think you should add a like maybe subtitles? Thanks for the giveaway!

  53. Great interwiew!
    you should do more of them.
    Thanks for the giveaway (^___^)d

  54. I love the video interview. It makes you as bloggers, and the authors seem more like people than pictures found on blogs and books. I love actually hearing what you all sound like, and it makes the interview more personable, and makes me feel like I'm there with you and the author(s). Thanks for the great video and giveaway!!! :D I totally want a signed Under the Never Sky, that book was FABULOUS!!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. That was a great interview, especially for those of us who are not able to see signings because we live in no man's land. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I loved the video interview. It's fun to see the different personalities that don't always come through in writing. I think you should continue to do them:)

    ReplyDelete
  57. Yes i think it is good because it puts the book to the author and you feel alittle like you are there. I am disabled and i don't get out that much. Plus i live in rural
    georgia and you don't get to meet to many authors here without driving a far distance. Thanks alot for the giveaway GOOD LUCK TO ALL jscddmj [at] aol [dot] com

    ReplyDelete
  58. Opportunities to host video interviews is just awesome, especially for those bloggers *cough cough me* who live in places that authors never visit lol. Awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I really enjoyed the interview because it gives us the opportunity to sort of meet the authors. I'd like to see more of these!

    ReplyDelete
  60. "Dystopian chooses you." lol, love that! and loved the interview too. definitely do more:)

    ReplyDelete
  61. I loved the video interview, its great for people who don't get a chance to go to signing and events like this. Many times these tours only go to big cities and only in select few stays so its hard for me to go to author events! Thanks for the opportunity it was like I was there!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I love the interviews! It seems to make things come alive, especially for those of us who don't have opportunities to meet many of the authors we love.

  70. Oh my goodness, how did you sit there so calmly and not totally fangirl out LOL Thank you for the wonderful interview. I loved it and can say as much as I have wanted to read these books, I now want this so much more; of course they are on the wishlist, but I would certainly love to win copies. I really enjoyed the interview and I am struggling with whether I appreciate the written interviews more or if actually seeing the reactions and spontaneity of the authors response made it sweeter. It was a little long (but that is just because I stopped by to visit for a moment and got involved I think) however, there were three wonderful authors to share with us. Thank you for sharing the joy!

  71. I love the video interview! You should definitely do more! It's great to get to see the authors answer the questions.

  72. Great idea - video interview. Nice change from the norm and would love to see more!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Lucky ducks! You have no idea how badly I want to meet all those authors (other than Lauren Oliver I've already met her but you know it wouldn't hurt to meet her again). It looked like y'all had fun!

    ReplyDelete
  74. i rather have written interviews. video interviews take a while to load and i have to use head phones or it interfers with someone watching tv. lol

  75. I loved the interview video :) I loved how you asked them to describe their books in six words I really think that gives a great view of the book to the readers. And I love love love Tahereh's shoes and bag. They are gorgeous!

  76. I really did enjoy the video post. Honestly. And I think that a lot of other people probably have and will enjoy it. Personally, even though I liked it, I honestly don't have a lot of time to watch the videos. I can read a post so much faster and zoom on to the next thing. But if I do have time, I think I will enjoy sitting down for a few videos. Makes things more personal! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  77. The post was great! But I think written interviews are better because not many bother to watch videos.

    ReplyDelete
  78. To be honest, I don't really care for the video interviews becsuse I look through blogs while I'm at work and I can't watch videos here.

  79. I love the video interview! The questions were great and the authors were very likeable. I just didn't like all of the background chatter.

  80. I like the video interviews. It's much more personable:)

    ReplyDelete
  81. It's a great interview. The q and a was very well paced. I might invest in good audio equipment in the future if you do more of these. It would then be easier to hear above the crowd and bring the answers of the authors forward better.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Absolutely freakin awesome! Thanks so much for such a fun and fabulous interview! I'm so jealous!!! :)

  83. I liked the video interview. It's a very good idea.

  96. Yes it's such a great idea! Do more of these interviews. It's so nice since many of us can't always make it to these events.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Ps: It was hard to hear the answers at times though because of the background noise, so maybe pick somewhere quieter to do the interview.

    ReplyDelete
  98. I like the video interview. It's more fun than reading the answers because you get a real sense of how they answered.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Definitely always a big fan of video interviews. Yes. You should do more. ;)
