    Copy of Ancestor arrived

    Copy of Ancestor arrived today. Shame the corners are all mashed up. Why do they put a backing card on the book that has the corners chopped off. I’ll have to order another copy if I want a nice ‘close to mint’ one for the bookshelf 🙁

    Holy grail…

    The original Ancestor and Earthcore are much sought after items. 

    A lot of the OJ’s have them but those who came late to the table have missed out on a big piece of Siglerism pie!

    Awesomeness at the Ancestor tour kick-off!

    pictures posted (or, as we junkies like to say, it didn’t happen)

    Awesome time at borders in NYC last night! Unfortunately didn’t have time to go to pub afterwards as I needed to catch a train back to CT but generally an awesome time. My copy of Ancestor had not yet arrived from amazon so I Bought ANOTHER copy for the FDO to sign. This of course helps first day sales number which is what we’re all shooting for.


    just for everyone’s info, borders was checking to ensure everyone had bought the book prior to Scott signing it. If you get your book from another source (ie amazon), you might want bring you receipt just to make life a little easier.

    My big box of Ancestor arrived

    The Postal worker never looked so sexy, carrying my massive box of books containing only Ancestor copies.  I opened the box and sniffed the books. Then gently cracked them open to view the dedication. Heaven.

    Then my hubbie walked by and said…”That’s a lot of books. Oh, they’re all the same book.” Obviously he’s not a junkieWink

    I think it’s only DOM books…

    Correct me if I’m wrong but it’s only pre-ordered books published by Dark Overlord Media that are numbered and signed, such as The Rookie and The Starter.

  14. SpiderMonkey

    Just got my fix too! SWEEEEET!

    Just pulled my copy out of the mail box.  Can’t wait to start reading it.  Thanks again for another beautiful book, Sig!


    p.s.   ….just one thing.  I thought they were to be numbered and signed like the Rookie was.  Did I miss-hear something?

    Just picked it up from my local independent bookstore…

    …so I’m laughing at all of you who are still waiting on Amazon to get around to you. Bwa ha ha ha ha!

    (Well, unless you’re located outside the continental United States, in which case you have my sympathy.)

    PS – Mind you, the local independent bookstore hadn’t actually bothered to pull my reserved copy yet, so I had to go get it off the shelf. But still. Bwa ha ha ha ha!

    Ouch. I went for Expedited

    Ouch. I went for Expedited Int’l Shipping but the estimated delivery date isn’t that much better… July 19, 2010. (I’m nextdoor in Ireland btw).

  26. NeilColquhoun

    Your appetite will be trully whetted!

    You gotta wait man.

    Good things from the FDO are worth waiting for!

  27. traintosanity

    Can’t wait to get my hands on it

    Amazon’s giving me an ETA of the 29th for my pre-order to show up, but hopefully it’ll show up early.  Fortunately I still have a few episodes of Earthcore to keep me occupied until then.

    Congrats on the new release and good luck with a great start on the NYT list!

    Finally – Congrats FDO

    It is at last here. I know you have looked forward to this for a long time FDO, but us original junkies have been needing this fix at least as long. My copy will be in hand by Saturday I am told by Amazon. Good luck with cracking the NYT top 15. I hope this is the beginning of the FDO taking over the title “King of All Media”.
