London Towne

Busy, busy... still in England, now in the heart of London... we had a smashing visit to Bath, with a great event at Toppings and tourist visits to the Roman Baths, the spa, the Assembly Rooms, and the Royal Crescent... then it was back to Heathrow for the (sold out) Eastercon. Biggest and best Eastercon ever, by all reports. It was great to see so many old friends, and to make some new ones.

Meanwhile, back at home, GAME OF THRONES won the prestigious Peabody Award.

This evening is the big London signing and interview at the Bloomsbury Theatre. See (some of) you there!

It was great to see and hear from you at Eastercon - it was a very good con. I do so understand those fans who berate you for taking time off from Winds of Winter - I have to remind myself that you need that time :)

Congrats on the award. The Blu-ray of the series is the best Blu-ray I've yet seen. Everyone should buy it.

Not quite the biggest Eastercon ever. Seacon 84 (held in Brighton in 1984) was combined with the Eurcocon and got around 1,700 members.

It was wonderful to see and meet you at Eastercon, even though the gold pen was a bit flaky. All the best for the future!

Was great to see you and Parris again, George - and John and Gail too. The Wild Cards panel was a blast. :)

Your talk in Bath was great, I've been on Toppings mailing list for ages, knew there'd be someone I wanted to see on there one day! :-)

Shame you had such poor weather and didn't get to see our beautiful city at its best.

THANKS FOR WRITING!!!
Thanks for posting - was starting to worry about you! Was afraid you may have gotten some bad fish & chips :)

Glad you are having a nice time - hope you are having some time to relax - you have certainly had a very busy year and some down time is richly deserved!!!

Counting the days to Chicon!!! (and hopefully seeing that Hugo in your hand!!!).

Have a nice time there!!
I watched the whole interview at eastercon, and somehow I´m quite worried about the answer to last question, please be merciful, don´t kill many Starks this time.
Thank you for your books which I enjoy inmensly

My sister and I came to see your talk in Bath, it was sold out so we had to lug boxes for 4hrs for the bookshop to get in, but it was completely worth it! It's the first time I've been to see an author, and I have to say you'll be a tough act to follow!

I can't believe I've only found out that you were at the Bloomsbury Theater now. I go to the university attached to it and would definitely have come to see you! Such a shame

It's been announced for months.

The best place to watch for such is the appearances page of my website.

Just wanted to say that I love that picture of you in the icon. Very nice- distinguished, maybe. I always have a terrible time finding the perfect words for moments like these.

I Love England
I was there once with my friends Vic and Zara Phythian in Nottingham. I miss it...and them. :(
