Book Tours

When Raymond E. Feist tours, they are announced on the Feistfans-l Mailing List, they are also normally announced in this section shortly after. Please do not ask if Raymond E. Feist can come to your town, as in his own words, 'I have nothing to say about where they send me' (referring to his publishers). If you want him to visit your town, lobby your bookseller to contact the publisher, thats the way it gets done.

The following includes events that have been scheduled, they may have come and gone, but are here for your reference. New, and provisional events, will be added as and when they are known, they will appear towards the top of the list.

Occasionally, although not on a Book Tour, Ray may attend and participate in Other Events. In some cases these may include a book signing.

Please do not contact us, , to ask for more information on upcoming events shown below. If the information is not already here, then we do not know, and it probably doesn't even exist yet.

2:30 PM - Reading/Signing

Following Ray's announcement, there were a few questions about the proper etiquette at a signing. Ray's responses:

A few stores try to push the "he's only signing the new one, and you have to buy it here," nonsense but most don't.

The rule-of-thumb is not to make people behind you wait, so I usually sign three and send those with more to the back of the line. If I'm pressed for time, that means that everyone gets something signed. If I'm not pressed (most of the time) then that insures that those who have only the new book, but find themselves behind the obsessive collector type fan who has 100 different editions don't blow their entire lunch hour waiting for me to get past one guy.

Bring some of your old ones, buy the new one, whatever makes you happy.

And in a later post:

If it's got my name on it, or was published as part of a promotion, i.e. game, map, CD, etc. I'll sign it.

I've been to one of Ray's book signings, and they are pretty cool events. If you can go, I highly recommend it. And nothing is better than a signed hardback...
