Readings in Carlton have them – if you want one in a hurry, and don’t have connections in the Cult of Jojo (as we affectionately refer to some of Joanne’s more active fans) who can hook you up with one, they’re your best bet. It’s not listed on their website, but they definitely have stock. It’s now on their website, but as you can only find it through a search by ISBN we’ve stuck this handy link to it here. RRP $29.95
There hasn’t really been any formal way – apart from the events, of course – of getting signed copies until now. This gives people another option. We only have Australian pricing there at the moment, but if anyone overseas wants one we’ll happily figure out a shipped price on a case-by-case basis.
Please remember, this is registered post with a return receipt so we can hassle Australia Post in the event of non-delivery. Please also remember that – when compared with the RRP – the postage has been VERY heavily subsidised, and that it also involves things like driving to the post office, filling out forms, waiting in a queue and probably buying the packaging materials as well. I tried to talk her into setting direct-ordered signed copies at least five dollars above where they are – as I’ll probably be the one driving to the post office, waiting in line etc – but Joanne was most insistent on doing this because her readers mean everything to her. I’m not sure how long we’ll be able to keep up this particular service at this price, as we don’t want to tread on any retailers’ toes, but it’ll be fun while it lasts.
