As many of you know, I recently had a local signing. My editor jumped in the internet to see where it was being announced. Apparently for a signing in a fairly small city, it got a lot of coverage. The good folks over at WoW Insider posted this very nice announcement:
“Here’s a heads up to all our readers in the general area of Loveland, Colorado. Christie Golden will appear at 2 PM Today at your local Barnes and Noble to sign copies of her New York Times best selling book, Arthas. If you’re in the area and don’t need to be glued to your computer waiting for BlizzCon tickets — or are lucky enough to get one of the first tickets — this is a pretty decent use of a Saturday afternoon, I’d say.
And whether you’re in Colorado or California or anywhere else, if you haven’t checked Arthas out yet, it’s definitely worth a shot. If you have anything more than a passing interest in WoW Lore, you owe it to yourself to buy or borrow this book. Not only is it the best piece of non-game Warcraft fiction according to multiple members of the WoW Insider team, but it contains tidbits of lore and happenings that are almost sure to figure prominently in future patches and expansions. You can read our review of the book for more of my gushing on the book.
But anyway, if you’re in the Loveland area and happen to drop by Barnes and Noble, let us know if anything cool goes down, and happy reading.”
But the icing on the cake was seeing the above picked up and reprinted…after it had been translated into another language…and from that back into English. For your amusement, I offer the following. And I also offer the disclaimer that this is probably a better translation than any I could have made from English to another language.
“Here’s a heads up to every our readers in the generalized Atlantic of Loveland, Colorado. author Golden module materialize at 2 PM Today at your topical Barnes and Noble to clew copies of her New royalty Times prizewinning commerce book, Arthas.
