Introduce yourself to Nan McCarthy and Rainwater Press–we'd love to meet you! Tell us what you think of Nan's books, what you think of this Web site, or just tell us about an interesting book you've been reading lately. Once you've signed into our guestbook, you'll be added to our low-frequency (2 times/year) e-mailing list, which keeps readers up-to-date on Nan's latest book news.

Rainwater Press does not sell, rent, or share its mailing list. The information obtained from this guestbook is used only for the mailing list. If you don't want to submit your street address, city, or state, you can leave those fields blank. We do enjoy knowing from what country you're writing from, however, and we do try to use the snail mail info in case your e-mail address no longer works. If you want to be included in our e-mailing list, you must at least make sure your e-mail address has been typed in correctly.

What's your favorite book of all time? Don't forget to tell us about your favorite books, as well as the book(s) you're currently reading, in the fields below. Can't think of just one favorite? Go ahead and name two or three. To see what other people have listed as their favorite books, click here. Some of Nan's favorites appear on this list, too, including To Kill A Mockingbird, The Phantom Tollbooth, and The Little Prince. Her other favorites include Alex Haley's Roots, Frank McCourt's Angela's Ashes, James T. Farrell's Studs Lonigan trilogy, and J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series.

Autographed Bookplates:

If you're in North America and would like to receive autographed bookplates for your copies of Nan's books, please send a stamped, self-addressed, letter-size envelope to:

Nan McCarthy
Rainwater Press
9414 West 141st Street
Overland Park, KS 66221
(913) 851-5886

If you're outside North America you can still get autographed bookplates but you must use INTERNATIONAL POSTAGE on your self-addressed, letter-size envelope. Send all bookplate requests to the above snail mail address.

Please specify how many and which books you would like bookplates for (example: one each for Chat, Connect, Crash). You may also request that the bookplates be inscribed to a particular person. If no name is specified, Nan will simply sign her name and the date on each bookplate. Kindly allow 2-4 weeks delivery depending on Nan's schedule. Bookplate requests from outside North America may take longer.

If you order copies of Chat, Connect, and Crash directly from Rainwater Press, you can request that the books be inscribed/autographed directly, instead of requesting bookplates. For information on how to order Nan's books, click here.
