Frequently Asked Questions. Welcome to the Robin Hobb ‘Frequently Asked Question’ page. Please skim this page before sending me an email or asking a question on Facebook or other social media. Thanks so much for your courtesy. This is a difficult question to answer, as the ‘next book’ will vary by which country you are in and which format, such as hardback, paperback or e-book. The best way to get your answer is not to email me or ask me on Facebook, but to go to the publisher’s site for your country and do a title search there.
They aren’t. Not always. But sometimes they are, and it is completely outside of my control. The answer to these questions vary by country and book.

Often I don’t know the answer myself. This is a case where Google is your friend! Or a visit to the publisher’s website in your country may give you the answer. As a commercially published author, I don’t create the e-book or the audio book or graphic novel or movie of my books. That is done by whoever has purchased the rights to do so.
The best way, of course, is to come to a signing! I am happy to personalize the signature to you or to a friend if it’s for a gift. I often do book tours right after a new hard back is published. My schedule for visits to bookstores and conventions is right here on my website. If you check my schedule, you can see what towns and stores I will be visiting. If our lives do not intersect, then the next best way is by mail order. There are two sources I can recommend.
If you are a collector and your goal is a signed first edition in pristine condition, then you can visit The Signed Page. There you can not only request an autographed first edition, but ask for a specific inscription. The book will be sent to you carefully packaged; if you are a bibliophile, this may be a good choice. Year round, signed copies of any of my books are available at The University Book Store in Seattle.
You can request a hardback or a paperback, just signed or with an inscription, and it will be mailed to you Fourth Class Postage with no additional charge. Go to their website at University Bookstore or call them toll free at 1-800-335-7323. If you wish the book to be shipped by a different method, you will have to pay for it. If it’s left entirely up to me, the answer is yes. I’ll be happy to sign any of my books you bring.
BUT here is the common courtesy observed at signings. If you have more than three items for the writer to sign, get in line, get three items signed, and then go back to the end of the line. Repeat until your collection is all signed. If a writer is hugely popular and the line is long, you may be asked to limit yourself to a single book. The venue gets to make the rules about that. Occasionally, a bookstore will limit what you can have signed.
As a guest of the bookstore, I respect their wishes. It is also excellent manners to buy the new book from the store sponsoring the signing.
It costs a bookstore a lot of time, and effort to bring writers in to sign books. If readers bring in discounted copies of the book, the store will not have a reason to bring in writers. The book store’s objective in hosting a signing is to sell books so the store makes money. If you can’t afford a book but want to hear the reading, that’s great and you are still welcome. If you can, buy a cup of coffee at the café, or a pen, or a notebook. Let the bookstore know you appreciate their effort. As of this writing in October of 2013, the manuscript for Fool’s Assassin, the first book of The Fitz and the Fool Trilogy, is with the publishers.
In the UK, we have a publication date of August 2014. I am still hard at work on the second and third books of the story. For this reason, I’m going to refrain from answering a lot of questions about the content of the book. I’ve found it is very easy to talk a book to death, that is, to drain off all the energy and excitement of actually writing the book by talking about it constantly. And so I intend to privately and quietly keep writing.
