Leaving Seattle

A thousand people turned up at Town Hall last night for my Seattle signing, sponsored by the University Bookstore.

Seattle also included visits to Bungie (I could tell you what they are doing, but then I'd have to kill you) and Amazon (where they are selling lots o' books). Cool stuff, great people.

Comicon, LA, and Redwood City already seem to be receding into the distant past. The trip has become one long blur... but tiring as it is at times, it means a lot to me to meet so many of my readers. I appreciate all of you coming, in spite of the crowds and long lines.

This morning we're off to Denver. Tomorrow I sign at Tattered Cover. See you there.

Denver appearance
After waiting several hours, I got a glimpse of Mr Martin and was even able to ask a question. He was very gracious.

The Tattered Cover, not so much. Upon finding out that I had purchased my copy of Dance earlier, I was asked to go back to the end of the line or leave. I explained that I was a cancer patient in treatment, and could not wait any longer. Too bad. Leave, sir.

I was able to get my first edition copy of AGOT signed, thanks to a very kind woman in line. No dice on Dance.

I had never heard or read that you must buy the new book onsite the day of the signing. How then do the justify signing older items?
