Update: S&N of Unbound

The Signed & Numbered edition of Unbound is still not finished.

It is not for lack of trying. The authors have worked hard on getting the pages signed. But several of Unbound‘s contributors have had some hard times in the last year and that has resulted in the pages not being signed for months.

Needless to say, I apologize for how long this has taken. But I’ve been clear with my writers that if serious life events occur that the signature pages come second. I’m not big on stress and I’d be a hypocrite not to believe the same thing with the contributors.

I have just received the pages back, to gauge how far we have to go. You can see a picture of one of the signed pages on the right. It looks worse than what it is. If you take me out of it — I always sign within five hours or so — we have 10 signatures left. Of those ten, only 4 don’t live in the Seattle area.

Effectively, I have to get 4 authors to sign the pages. Then the pages will come back to me and I’ll try to do a large sit-down signing with the remaining authors who live near me.

This is where we stand right now. Thank you for your patience! More news when those four signatures are added and the pages come back to me for the Seattle signing.

Hope you are reading something great!

  1. Shawn, I can only “speak” for myself but I am certain many share my sentiment. I definitely want this book but I agree wholeheartedly with you that the signature pages come second to any serious life events. I will bide my time reading something else. Rock on, man!

  2. Thanks for the update Shawn, I’m sure the wait will be more than worth it.

    In the meantime it’s back to seeing if Roland finds his way to the tower. Believe it or not it’s my first time reading the series. Enjoying it immensely 🙂

  3. Well I guess I am in the minority and find it ridiculous and frustrating that i will have ordered this book almost 2 years ago and still haven’t been able to read it

    1. I bought the e-book so I could read it. No way am I damaging the spine of this puppy by opening it up 🙂

  4. Perhaps you could sweeten the continued wait with a little extra? Along the same lines as you did with The Broken Empire? I’m sure the wait will be worth it, let’s hope the authors crack on and get them signed soon.

    1. I agree with this sentiment. And in relation to John Wynn and johnoz’s comments. Maybe that sweetener could be in the form of a copy of the e-book so we can at least read the book? Many of the recent Kickstarters in this genre have included the ebooks in the cost of the hard copy.

  5. I can’t say I am not disappointed, I would never have spent that much on myself, it was hoped to be a special Christmas gift in 2015 for someone who had recently been diagnosed with cancer , delayed to late Spring birthday 2016, hoped to be this year, it will still be a great gift eventually,

  6. Regretfully the intended recipient of this book (my brother) passed away of cancer February 20th. So yes life events happen to those that were supposed to receive the book as well as the writers. I thought my brother would have at least have the chance to receive and read the book. Now this will go to my personal collection. Still waiting.
