Now accepting credit cards

For my book signing this weekend, I bought myself a new iPad so I could accept credit cards. Yay!

Exciting and scary, but yay!

The app and hardware is from a company called Square. The app is called “Square Register” and works like a little register on your iPad. I can upload inventory—including images—and prices, and then all I have to do is click the product and the app starts a tally. So far it’s been really easy, although I’ve only been playing. The real test will come this Saturday when I have to use it in real time.

Oh, yeah. This Saturday.

I’ll be selling hardcover and paperback copies of my book Twisted: Tales to Rot Your Brain Vol. 1 along with prints, posters and bookmarks at the Frick Art & Historical Center in Pittsburgh. You’ll also get a free bookmark with every book you buy, or if you like, you can just buy a bookmark. Your call.

Here’s the scoop:

What: Book signing (along with my new buddy Stacy Innerst)
Date: Saturday, April 14
Time: 1:30-2:30 pm
Location: The Frick Art & Historical Center, in the museum rotunda

I’m hoping to see an absolutely huge turnout. I totally want to run out of books and stuff. No pressure or anything.
