For Angelenos

Still in LA, doing lunch and taking meetings and dancing the Hollywood shuffle.

But I had some free time this morning, so I did stealth signings at some LA bookstores.

If anyone out there is looking for a signed copy of one of my novels, you'll find stacks of 'em at the Barnes & Noble branches in Manhattan Beach, Huntington Beach, Long Beach (both), and The Grove. I also hit the brand new Mysterious Galaxy branch in Redondo Beach, and defaced their copies. It's first come first served, so if you're eager for a copy I have scribbed in, hie ye to one of those stores while the supplies last.

I hope you appreciate the Grove's 24-hour Sinatra Sound System.

Ninja autographings. That's beyond awesome, good sir! Almost enough to make me wish I lived in SoCal.

Thanks! I read this and rushed to my local bookstore to get a signed copy of _Game of Thrones_ (I decided to go classic). I wish I would have been there when you were, so I could have... felt too awkward to walk up and say thank you for writing such compelling and artful series.

First I'm totally in love with your books, you're such a great writer... And I'm glad cause i found another history, I was orphan since I finished The lord of The Rings... I can't wait to read the two last books.

BUT DEAR GRRM: DON'T YOU DARE TO KILL JON SNOW (DEFINITELY)!!! HE'S THE MOST BADASS CHARACTER... I MEAN, PLEASE... PRETTY PLEASE?

And please do not take too long to write ... The curiosity is killing me!

God Bless you.

Me too - please, do NOT kill Jon Snow !!!
He's been my favorite character from the very first moment and he's been keeping the post although the competitors are very strong!

Yet another reason to visit America, maybe I'll persuade my family to go at some point. England is very dull. I also want to get US editions of ASoIaF, the UK paperbacks from Voyager fell apart on my first read and the "special" slipcase edition of AGoT is equally bad quality.

There's a Mysterious Galaxy in Redondo Beach? Awesome!

This is now an educational not-blog!

Hiya! Hiya! Hiya! and a . . .
Happy (belated) birthday to you, dear George!

Tried to send a message to you at the aol account, but it bounced. Just like the Congrats! message I tried to send in July about DwD--then I thought it might've bounced due to an overfull emailbox . . . now, perhaps, because it's been changed?

This is definitely the coolest thing I have seen all day; well done GRRM! I would also like to echo some of the previous posters and say: Don't you dare kill Jon Snow!!

Thank you! Thank you! I read this and immediately ran out and bought two copies of A Dance with Dragons (one for a friend) and a copy of A Storm of Swords (my absolute favorite!)

I sincerely hope that defacing means "signing" in this context.

Thank You
Mr. Martin,
I just wanted to say thank you for stopping by yesterday at Manhattan Beach... it was wonderful to meet you. My staff and customers were charmed and thrilled. Your books are flying out of here, thanks for the shout out! Enjoy the remainder of your stay!

Come home!
Hope you get to come home soon, the weather is beautiful and the green chiles are roasting. And don't you have some writing to do?
Congrats on the emmy nods and Peter's win!

Barnes & Noble @ the Grove.
Big thank you! It's my b-day weekend. I took my daughter out to watch The Lion King. the headed straight to barnes and noble to pick up a signed copy of your book. Best B-Day weekend ever.

Love it!
This is very cool! Now come to Tennessee, (it's fall here) the fall color's can be very inspiring! And stealth sign some of our copies while you're here :-)

I would just like to say (in regards to the Jon Snow issue) Death would be better than a half life in Ghost, and better still than being brought back the way Cat was.

Thanks!
I was at work yesterday when I heard about this. I mentioned it to my lovely wife, and she surprised me with signed copies of all 5 books when I got home!

Regarding Danarius, sorry I know it's kind of random.
So, GRRM's beloved Jets will be taking on the Oakland Raiders tomorrow.

Do you know what that means? GRRM is going to have to root against Danarius. Danarius Moore that is. He's a rookie wideout with the Raiders, and every time I see his name mentioned I can't help but think of the fair-haired dragon queen.

Not a bad namesake to have...

I just went to pick up a signed copy at the HB store. Thanks George for taking the time to hit some of the local stores while you're out here. There are still a few left if your in the area.
