On The Sly

Some novels take longer than others. Frozen Fire and Under Twin Suns were like that. Some come out as a bolt of lightening, like The Last Griffin. Each novel writes differently.

webサイン会&サイン本情報

いよいよ6月25日に「心霊探偵八雲12 魂の深淵」が発売されます。

 

ということで、webサイン会やサイン本の情報をまとめておきます。

少し分かり難いので、注意して読んで下さいね。

 

まずは、webサイン会とは何ぞや?? と思った方も多いでしょう。

私も同じです。(笑)

 

最終巻ということもあり、当初は全国の書店を回ってサイン会をやろうと思っていたのですが、皆さんもご存じの通り、コロナウィルスの影響で、そうしたイベントの実施が困難になってしまいました。

 

何とかならないものか――と関係各所で知恵を出した結果、webサイン会という企画が立ち上がったというわけです。
