I contacted Chuck's publicist this weekend about ticket info, and he got back to me with not only phone numbers (below) you should each call for event info, but also specific instructions on how the signing is going to work at each store.  I'll begin with that.

  • All books will be pre-autographed.
  • Only the first 150 people at each venue will be able to have their books personalized.
  • No memorabilia whatsoever.
  • Chuck will personalize up two backlist titles in addition to copies of SNUFF for each of the 150 ticket/bracelet holders.

Important Details About How Chuck Will Sign Books This Time

According to Todd Doughty, Chuck’s very awesome publicist at Doubleday, here is how Chuck will be handling signing books and meeting fans this year:Yes, we’re changing the signings a bit this year.  First of all, fellow Doubleday author Donald Ray Pollock, author of KNOCKEMSTIFF, will appear with Chuck in Ann Arbor, Minneapolis and St. Louis.  Second, Chuck will be interviewed on-stage at each event regarding not only SNUFF, but also his entire career.  He’ll also be reading and it looks like we’ll have a trailer of CHOKE to show as well.  This will all be followed by audience Q&A and there will be prizes galore, as usual.

In terms of the signing, here’s the lowdown: Chuck will pre-autograph all copies of SNUFF before the tour at the Random House warehouse.  These signed copies of SNUFF will be on sale at each of his events.  However, only the first 150 people in each city will have the chance to meet Chuck as well as have their copies of SNUFF personalized.  Tickets or wristbands will be given out by each store to the first 150 people.  More details to come…since I don’t know how each venue is going to handle passing out the tickets/wristbands.  Also, both the NYC and Denver stores have asked that Chuck not personalize – signed books will be for sale though.

 

Remember, these dates are subject to change.
