I signed hundreds of copies of my books at Bookpeople in the past few weeks. Because of the pandemic, we sign masked and socially distanced on the picnic tables outside:
This cart is probably, oh, 1/3 of what I signed for the holidays:

Signed a bunch of books at Bookpeople yesterday. Many thanks to the Bookpeople staff and everybody who placed orders for holiday gifts! The deadline has passed for shipping this year, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait until the next holiday. There are links on all of my book pages to order signed copies. They ship everywhere, anytime, year-round!
Today I discovered that you can use a stretch of the Shoal Creek Greenbelt trail to walk between Bookpeople and the Central Library. That means if I added less than a mile to one of my epic Greenbelt walks to the Central Library I could almost walk from my house to Bookpeople without using a city street…
Just in time for the holidays: If you order any of my books from Bookpeople here in Austin, Texas, before December 12 I will sign and personalize them!
Even better news: Bookpeople ships everywhere!
How to order: Go to Bookpeople.com, add any or all of my books to your cart, and in the comments field during check out, indicate the name of the person to whom you would like the book(s) signed.
Direct links to each book:
I will sign as many books as you order! They make great, affordable gifts for the office, classroom, or friends and family!
I had a blast today selling books at Bookpeople as part of the nationwide Indies First celebration. (I’ve written before about my indie bookstore awakening.) For the record, I was pushing Tim Kreider’s We Learn Nothing, Patrick DeWitt’s The Sisters Brothers, and Oliver Burkeman’s The Antidote. I also bought a book myself: that’s Doug Dorst above, signing my copy of the amazing S.
Best of all, I got to sign books for some really cool readers! Thanks y’all for coming out.
Oh, and dig this: Oscar Ocuto showed up to get Newspaper Blackout signed and what was in his book but a bunch of fresh-made blackout poems! Too cool.
