Coming to LA

Looks like I will be coming out to LA in early January, to talk about the HBO show at the TCA.

That one is for television critics only, I'm afraid... but I'm looking to set up a couple of public events while I am in town. Watch this space. We will probably do a signing, most likely somewhere in the San Fernando Valley. And our friend Lodengarl, founder and prince of the Brotherhood Without Banners, is going to come down from the Bay Area to organize a BWB event the same day. Details when we have 'em... but angelenos, mark down January 9 on your calendars.

(Might have an exciting announcement that day as well. Maybe two. But don't quote me on that).

Please don't be messing with us again. That would be so uncool I don't even know if there's a way to describe it in human terms.

Re: Please
Completely agree.

I'd love it if you came to Vroman's in Pasadena. It's my local bookstore and the largest independent bookstore in Southern California. I can't wait for the new series (and the new book) ;)

I have to second the desire to see you at Vroman's, if not this trip, than another one sometime. Vroman's is a truly wonderful bookstore. I always feel good about spending my money there!

Congrats on season 1 !!
I only wish you could make it to the Northwest as well. Can't wait to see the characters walk into existence via HBO. As to your announcement, no pressure from this fan, encouragement perhaps, hope certainly. Do what must be done, for it needs doing ;-)

Re: Congrats on season 1 !!
Seconded! Please do come to the Northwest if possible, in the future! That would be fantastic! Portland would love to have you, and I'm sure you have a avid (slash, you know, rabid) fan-base here. Plus Portland is nice and laid back and has great coffee and Powells.

In regard to your earlier post, thank you very much for updating us- it's very kind of you to do so.

!!! I am in the Valley!!! Best. News. Ever!

I'll be at the BWB gathering for sure. Lodey, if you read this, drop me a line and I'll help with planning if you need it.

does the announcement involve the show or books?
Dec. 17th, 2010 04:01 am (UTC)
I am so excited I am screaming like a 10 year old girl!

I WONDER what those two possible announcements might be...

Please let the exciting announcement be that the book is done... (crossing fingers and saying a little prayer to the book gods of the universe).
Dec. 17th, 2010 04:20 am (UTC)
announcement... well, there's only one announcement that matters, so how can there be two? :-) something about dancing...I hope

Oh please, oh please
Let it be ADWD publishing date, what a way to start off a New Year that would be!

By the way Mr. Martin can you recommend any good steampunk novels? I am considering eBooking "Boneshaker", have heard some good things about it. Just finished Joe Abercrombie's First Law trilogy (loved it) - and needing a change of pace.

Merry Christmas!

I never quote you George unless I see it in print on a shelf.
Dec. 17th, 2010 05:42 am (UTC)
Yay! I live in the SFV!! As a valley girl, I heartily welcome your presence. :)
Dec. 17th, 2010 06:07 am (UTC)
Juicy! Here's hoping exciting announcements are in the works..

LA BwB Gathering - Come Join the Fandom Fun
Please refer to the thread on the A Song of Ice and Fire message board: http://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/topic/46733-la-bwb-time-to-gather-with-george/ for updates and plans.

We are organizing a Sunday, Jan 9th BwB evening event in the San Fernando Valley. Head over to the above thread, put in your RSVP, give suggestions, and help make this a great event - conversation, food, drink, relaxation and contemplation will be in order.

The BwB has always been an open fan club for those that want to have a good time, meet new people, and enjoy fandom the way it was meant to be enjoyed. Looking forward to a great turnout in LA!

Re: LA BwB Gathering - Come Join the Fandom Fun
Lodey- I passed this on to Erik and Tav... I think I found a venue. I met this guy whose wife had a baby at my hospital. He's a recently retired NFL coach (Patriots!) who opened a New Haven style pizza place in Burbank. Don't we know someone who likes pizza and football?

I checked it out with my family tonight and the pizza is really good. http://www.caminitipizza.com

What do you think?
