    Neal Shusterman
    Blue Willow Bookshop, Wednesday, October 22 at 5pm
    What: Neal Shusterman will discuss and sign UNDIVIDED, the last book in the bestselling UNWIND Dystology for young adults. When: Wednesday, October 22, 5:00 pm Where: Blue Willow Bookshop, 14532 Memorial Drive, Houston, Texas, 77079 Admission: In order to go through the signing line and meet Neal Shusterman, please purchase UNDIVIDED from Blue Willow Bookshop. At the time of your purchase, we will issue a signing line ticket that indicates your place in line. Your book and signing line ticket can be picked up at the event. About the Author: Neal Shusterman is the author of many critically acclaimed novels for young adults, including the Skinjacker trilogy, UNWIND, and DOWNSIDERS. He also writes screenplays for motion pictures and television shows. The father of four children, Neal lives in southern California. Book: Teens control the fate of America in the fourth and final book in the "New York Times" bestselling Unwind dystology by Neal Shusterman. Proactive Citizenry, the company that created Cam from the parts of unwound teens, has a plan: to mass produce rewound teens like Cam for military purposes. And below the surface of that horror lies another shocking level of intrigue: Proactive Citizenry has been suppressing technology that could make unwinding completely unnecessary. As Conner, Risa, and Lev uncover these startling secrets, enraged teens begin to march on Washington to demand justice and a better future. But more trouble is brewing. Starkey's group of storked teens is growing more powerful and militant with each new recruit. And if they have their way, they'll burn the harvest camps to the ground and put every adult in them before a firing squad--which could destroy any chance America has for a peaceful future. Ordering: A limited number of autographed copies of Neal’s book will be available for purchase after the event. If you cannot attend the event, and would like a personalized copy of his book, please call us before the event at (281) 497-8675.

    Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews - Signed Preorder
    Murder By The Book, Thursday, October 23 at 00am
    Ilona Andrews will drop by Murder By The Book to sign copies of Burn For Me (Avon; $5.99), the first book in their new Hidden Legacy Series.

    If you preorder the book before October 22, we'll get the signed copies shipped out so you'll receive them for the release date. If you'd like you books personalized, please include personalization details in the "order comments" box.

    (If you're planning on attending their signing with Kim Harrison on Tuesday, October 28, visit that event page to order books for the signing.

    "Ilona Andrews" is the pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing team. Ilona is a native-born Russian and Gordon is a former communications sergeant in the U.S. Army. Contrary to popular belief, Gordon was never an intelligence officer with a license to kill, and Ilona was never the mysterious Russian spy who seduced him. They met in college, in English Composition 101, where Ilona got a better grade. (Gordon is still sore about that.) They have co-authored two New York Times and USA Today bestselling series--the urban fantasy of Kate Daniels and the romantic urban fantasy of The Edge--and are working on the next volumes for both. They live in Texas with their two children and many dogs and cats.

    Carmen Boullosa - TEXAS: THE GREAT THEFT
    Brazos Bookstore, Friday, October 24 at 7pm
    Loosely based on the little-known 1859 Mexican invasion of the United States, Carmen Boullosa’s newest novel TEXAS: THE GREAT THEFT is a richly imagined evocation of the volatile Tex-Mex borderland, wrested from Mexico in 1848. Described by Roberto Bolaño as "Mexico's greatest woman writer," Boullosa views the border history through distinctly Mexican eyes, and her sympathetic portrayal each of her wildly diverse characters—Mexican ranchers and Texas Rangers, Comanches and cowboys, German socialists and runaway slaves, Southern belles and dance hall girls—makes her storytelling tremendously powerful and absorbing. With today’s Mexican-American frontier such a front-burner concern, this novel that brilliantly illuminates its historical landscape is especially welcome. TEXAS is Boullosa's fourth novel to appear in English, her previous novels were published by Grove Press.

    Special thanks to our promotional partner, The Center of Mexican-American Studies at the University of Houston.

    Jeffrey Siger
    Murder By The Book, Saturday, October 25 at 1pm
    Jeffrey Siger will sign and discuss Sons of Sparta (Poisoned Pen Press; $24.95 or $14.95).

    The Greek Press called the work of Jeffrey Siger “prophetic,” Eurocrime described him as a “very gifted American author...on a par with other American authors such as Joseph Wambaugh or Ed McBain,” and the City of San Francisco awarded him its Certificate of Honor citing that his “acclaimed books have not only explored modern Greek society and its ancient roots but have inspired political change in Greece.”

    Jeff was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, received degrees in political science and biology from Washington and Jefferson College and in law from Boston College Law School (together with the academic honor, Order of the Coif).

    He began practicing law at a major Wall Street law firm. While there, he helped establish the leading organization in New York City for private-practice lawyers seeking to volunteer for public service, and served as Special Counsel to the citizens group responsible for reporting on New York City prison conditions. His investigation into a politically charged suicide in one of its jails resulted in a report The New York Times covered as its lead, front page story, and Newsweek magazine called the greatest example of the newest form of unofficial art, the Investigative Report.

    He left Wall Street to join his own New York City law firm. There he continued as one of its name partners-litigating high-stakes society scandals and other delicate public and private matters of domestic and international consequence-until giving it all up to write full-time among the people, life, and politics of his beloved Mykonos, and spearfish in its Aegean waters.

    Kim Harrison and Ilona Andrews
    Murder By The Book, Tuesday, October 28 at 6:30pm
    Kim Harrison will sign and discuss The Witch with No Name (Harper Voayager; $26.99), the final book in the Hollows series. Kim Harrison, dark urban fantasy author of the New York Times best selling A Perfect Blood, was born and raised in the upper Midwest. After gaining her bachelors in the sciences, she moved to South Carolina, where she remained until recently returning to Michigan because she missed the snow. She's currently developing what comes after the Hollows between working on the Hollows books and a Hollows-based graphic novel. Kim is a member of The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. When not at her desk, she's most likely to be found landscaping her new/old Victorian home.

    Ilona Andrews will sign and discuss the first book in their new series, Burn for Me (Avon; $5.99).

    Ilona Andrews” is the pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing team. Ilona is a native-born Russian and Gordon is a former communications sergeant in the U.S. Army. Contrary to popular belief, Gordon was never an intelligence officer with a license to kill, and Ilona was never the mysterious Russian spy who seduced him. They met in college, in English Composition 101, where Ilona got a better grade. (Gordon is still sore about that.)

    Gordon and Ilona currently reside in Texas with their two children and many dogs and cats. They have co-authored two NYT and USAT bestselling series, the urban fantasy of Kate Daniels and romantic urban fantasy of The Edge and working on the next volumes for both. Kim's doing something new this year. Individual store are joining with me in an effort to raise a few tomatoes! If you bring in a canned good, you'll get a hug from Kim. :-) All donations will go to a local food bank, and though she's suggesting canned tomatoes, tomato paste, or tomato juice, and the like, any non-perishable food item will be welcome.
