LOCKE & KEY vol. 3: CROWN OF SHADOWS is out in hardcover this week, and as noted in my last entry, there are two ways to get a signed copy.
The first method would be to order from Cornerstone Books in Salem, MA. They’ll ship to you wherever you live (tho you pay shipping costs). But wait! There’s more! You can also order up to two other books, and get them signed as well. This makes it possible for you to get a complete signed set of the entire LOCKE & KEY series to date. Just like these happy customers:
But it also means you could order CROWN OF SHADOWS and both of the novels, or one of the novels and the book of stories. It’s practically a signed book buffet!
You can reach Cornerstone Books at 978-744-1831. But be sure and call ‘em soon… the window to order closes Wednesday night. (Aw, all right – probably if you order Thursday morning, we can squeeze you in. Just remember WHO REALLY LOVES YOU.)
The other way to get a signed copy of CROWN is to call up Casablanca Comics in Portland, ME. I’ll be signing there this Saturday, from 4 – 6, but you can also call in an order (207 892-0056), or buy through their website.
Casablanca will ship you up to three books, and they have all the LOCKE & KEY graphic novels, as well as copies of HORNS, HEART-SHAPED BOX, and 20TH CENTURY GHOSTS. Not only that, they’ll have copies of LOCKE & KEY: KEYS TO THE KINGDOM #1 (the first issue of the new series), and the $1 LOCKE & KEY: WELCOME TO LOVECRAFT – LEGACY EDITION… which are both out the same day as CROWN OF SHADOWS. That said, you can’t call in and order just the new comics – if you want signed copies of LEGACY or KEYS TO THE KINGDOM 1, you’ll have to order at least one of the books. Walk-in customers, however, will be able to purchase signed copies of the new comics during the event.
And a big hot heap of gratitude to anyone who calls in an order to Casablanca or Cornerstone. I love to sell me some books, of course, but I’m also glad when those sales are to the benefit of a classy indie bookstore or comic shop, and that’s the case here. I appreciate the support and so do they. Thanks guys.
