    Wow, that pic of me didn't come out half-bad. I think of myself as notoriously unphotogenic. :P Sparkles notwithstanding, of course!

    This is such a cool idea for a thread! I need to take pix next time I hit the bookstore.
    I saw yours and Stacia's in Winnipeg last week.

    Irysangel's and job's too.

    I saw these today in Winchester in the south of England: Celine Kiernan's The Poison Throne, in Waterstone's, and Jill Myles' Succubi Like It Hot, in WHSmith.

    Oh shoot! I was standing at a Dillons the other day and looking at three books by authors here on the shelves (at least. Those were the ones I immediately recognized anyway). I should have gotten a picture! I'll see if I can manage it next time I'm there.

    Please do!

    I'm going to be trying to make another trip to my local bookstore and try the same thing.

    My book is primarily out in the US (available in the UK, but not as widely promoted here) so I treasure the pics I snapped when I was in the States in June:


    I get excited whenever I see an AW book out and about :-)

    I felt like such a tourist snapping pics! But I couldn't help it. It was thrilling, truly.

    I forgot to get a pic for this thread, but running across ChaosTitan's Three Days to Dead at a B&N during a recent browse-fest reminded me I STILL hadn't read it. So I bought it. Am enjoying it thoroughly so far, which is saying something since anything paranormal usually turns me off.

    I saw Kody Keplenger's The DUFF yesterday! Right on top of the New YA Hardcover section! I picked it up and read the first couple of pages, if I had $16 to spend I'd have bought it right then. I had to gush to my fiancee and say "oh, this could be MY book someday!" Congrats, Kody!

    Borders/Waldenbooks does not carrier Celine Kiernan. At least not the three I checked I glanced around for some other AWers but didn't see them either. We need to send a memo.

    But I was talking with an employee and she hopes they absorb B&N and gets their distributors

    And right under Stacia in Williebee's post is Alien Tango, by our very own Gini Koch (JeanneTGC). It just released last Tuesday.
