Yeah I gave pointers to my event manager. Trying to get Newman invited for signings at our waterstones.

I would suggest that booking the Newmans as a couple is your best chance of success, both their careers have picked up tremendously of late. They are writing wild cards for GRRM and Emma is in great demand as a narrator. 

Or as an off the wall idea how about a live episode of tea and jeopardy from your store.

Wait. Emma Newman is the missus of Peter Newman?!
I've bought the only copy of Deathless our shop got in... =_=
Sadly I had a bad experience with Planetfall from Emma Newman. It had some gimmicks used that weakened the plot a main character who refused to change, and an ending I disliked and didn't understand that well. Worst of all the philosophical/religious implications of the moral of her story are going strongly against my own.
I'll eventually read more from her but probably nothing set in the planetfall universe.
But I've still made her a feature at work.
If we're talking about the same Emma then it's a pretty sweet idea to have them both.

Yes, mister and missus 8)

And the "Tea and Jeopardy" that Rostum mentions is a podcast that they have together, it's been going on for ages. Doing one from the shop would be a super idea!

Wow, @Nora: how time moves on. I’m recalling your first posts from a farm and later descriptions of being hit on your bicycle as you pedaled home at night. It seems like you’ve really found a great place to be.
