I need a headcount. Who wants an autographed 1st printing of Monster Hunter Vendetta?

Well, the time is almost here.  MHV officially releases in just over a month.

In the past I’ve just sold autographed copies here on the blog, which is awesome for me, and (I would hope) awesome for you, but there is one drawback to doing it that way. My blog doesn’t report to any bestseller lists. And one of the keys to building a writing career is to have your books show up on various bestseller lists.  MHI made it onto Entertainment Weekly and also onto Locus, both of which are big deals.  I’d like to get MHV up there too.

So, for this release, I’m going to autograph the books, and then they are going to go to a major independent book store. You guys can then order them from this particular bookstore. (and they’re awesome, so you shouldn’t have any issues there).  You get an autographed first printing when it first comes out, and I get to boost my stats. 

Once I get the details ironed out with the store, then I’ll go ahead and post who it is, and all their contact information.  

But I’m going to need to get an approximate headcount first, so I know how many books need to come to me first so that I can sign them, before I then ship them to the bookstore. So what I’d ask is that if you want to do this, please post in the comments below how many you want. Please be honest, because I want this to work out for the bookstore as well so we can continue to do this for future endeavors.

If you’ve got a blog or friends that are MH fans, please help me spread the word. I’d really appreciate it.

  2. In for 1

  3. Put me and my Dad down for one each.

  4. One for me and one for my friend Scott (who you signed a copy for at LibertyCon this past July) if you please.

  5. Yes sir! Count me in.

  6. I am in for one. I will just have to give away the one I have on pre-order at amazon 😉

  7. I would like to order a copy as well. 🙂

  8. Count me in for two Larry, any patches left?

  9. Mark me down for one. It’ll go nicely with my signed, self-published copy of MHI, which my wife didn’t get to read, because I made her buy a Baen copy to boost your stats. 😉

  10. I would love one as well

  11. Count me in for one!

  12. I’ll order one

  13. I want one please and thank you.

  14. I’ll take one.

  15. Put me down for one!!!!!!! I wish they were being published in a quality PPB format to match your original publication.
    Any new patches coming out with the book?

  16. I’d like one Larry.

    Also, if you haven’t talked to Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore out in San Diego you really should. They are one of the best independent spec fiction book stores in the country. I know both Brandon Sanderson, Jim Butcher and Dan Wells have done signings there.

    • Erik, I did a signing there last year with Dave Wolverton and John Brown. They’re awesome people, and it is an awesome store. One of my favorites.

      Plus they ship a lot of books to the Navy out of San Diego. I was the #1 book of the USS Ronald Reagan battle group. 🙂

  17. OH YEAH I NEED ONE> Can I get one on Sept 25th at the Jordan Landings Barns and Noble? 11:00 am -1 pm? I understand you might be there to do a panel and signing right?

  71. I would like an autographed copy of MHI:Vendetta

  72. Sign me up for one–and I’ll need to place an order with you separately for the corresponding patches. (Not quite the same as a personally-inscribed copy, but I’m glad to help with your stats so that you have one more thing to shove down the Marxtards’/Twitards’ craws.)

  73. Put me down for two.

    So for signed copies of MHI, should we continue to go through you, or will you be putting those up with these folks as well?

  98. Heck yeah! I’ll take at least 2 copies!

  99. […] If you haven’t read the first book Monster Hunter International and like what you read here do yourself a favor and and buy the darn book already! It’s an “urban” fantasy that kicks the crap out of all those emo vampire books. Think Backwater going after monsters instead of terrorists and you’re halfway there. The good guys are good and the bad guys will scare the crap out of you until the good guys drop mortar rounds on them! Well, the time is almost here.  MHV officially releases in just over a month.

  216. The way this thread is going you won’t have time to be writing anything except your autograph for a while, heh,

  217. I want one! I missed the chance to get a signed copy of the self published first novel. 😦

  218. I think 3 should do the trick

  219. I would like two, please.

  220. I’m in for 1

  221. I know I’m kind of late, but I was sitting here thinking I’d already pre ordered two copies of MHV. I’d like two, please.

  223. I’m in for one

  227. Two copies, please.

  228. Two copies please!

  229. I would love to have 2 signed copies, Thank you!!!

  232. One autographed, and then I’ll go buy one I can read over and over.

  234. I’ll take one!

  235. I’ll take one please. Waiting for Amazon to deliver my copy of MHI, but I’ll buy from wherever needed to get an autographed first print. As long as they ship outside of the US (since The Netherlands does not count as part of US overseas territories).

  236. I was going to buy it at my local big box, but they seem to be having distributor problems. Or maybe it is because it is from Baen. It always seems to happen to Baen volumes.

    Can we still get an autographed copy from you?
