1. Booksellers Everywhere
Richelle's books are available from major American book retailers like Amazon and Barnes and Noble, as well as all sorts of wonderful independent bookstores. You can buy online or in person. "Superstores" like Target and Walmart also often carry her books. Most UK and Australian bookstores also can get them. Other countries vary.
2. Buy Your Books SIGNED!
If you order books through the website of University Bookstore in Seattle, Richelle will come into the store to sign and personalize them to you before they ship out. There's no additional charge, and the store carries all Richelle's books and will also take pre-orders. International orders are also accepted (for shipping outside the US, select "foreign" from the order page's drop-down menu when it asks for your state).
Here's how to order. Follow these directions carefully or you might get an unsigned book sent to you!
1. Go to
University Book Store's website, and check out their
Richelle Mead page. This lists Richelle's most
popular books in a quick and easy format. If you're looking for
comics, graphic novels, or specific formats (hardcover, softcover,
etc.), use their
regular catalog display and search for
Mead, Richelle in the author search. They carry all currently available titles, including graphic
novels. Order the books you want, put them in your
shopping cart, and start the check-out process. For anthologies,
search by title. Note: if you have website difficulties, call
206-634-3400 and ask for General Books to order over the phone.
2. On the payment page, there's a comment field. Enter the following: "Please send me an autographed copy (or copies) made out to...." Then write in who you would like the book or books made out to. Be VERY specific about the name. Some people say "make it out to me, Joe Smith" when they really just want it made out to "Joe," not Joe Smith. So tell us exactly which name should be in the book! If you just want Richelle to autograph it with no personalization, then enter "signature only."
3. Pay for the item and complete your order.
4. The store will get in touch with Richelle to stop by and sign the order, then the books will be mailed to you. New releases can't ship out before their release day. It may take a couple weeks for Richelle to get to the store. See schedule below.
5. PLEASE direct all selling type questions (pre-orders, international shipping costs, etc.) to email@example.com) or the bookstore's mail order department, not Richelle.
Note: Richelle reserves the right to modify specific message requests--especially long ones! The books only have so much room. :)
***2013 Signing and
Richelle only gets into University Bookstore every few weeks (especially while pregnant!), so please note these dates when you're placing your orders and take them into consideration for gifts. Schedule is subject to change if unexpected circumstances arise, like Richelle going into early labor. If so, updates will be noted here. :)
