See You in Carolina

 Tomorrow morning my executive minion Raya and I will be off again, this time to ConCarolinas in Charlotte.


 If you're in the neighborhood, swing by the Charlotte Hilton and join the fun.  Parties, panels, autographing, speeches... did I mention the parties?  Sometime in there I hope to find some good barbeque.

 And I'll be doing a reading.  This time, I think, a selection from the forthcominh WORLD OF ICE AND FIRE, for all you fake history fans.

Con Carolinas
I really enjoyed the Wild Cards panel and I am very interested in starting that series. I only wished the autograph sessions were handled with more care. I was turned away from both sessions and honestly it was my entire reason for coming to Con Carolina. Unfortunately, I left with my heart broke and wallet much lighter than before. I did have a good moment though, without knowing your assistant Raya, I asked if I could help her with her groceries that she was dropping all over the elevator floor. She politely declined my help, but it wasn't until later that I knew why she declined. When you walked into the Opening ceremonies and she came walking in behind you, I knew then why she declined my help, she thought I just wanted to see the great and powerful George R. R. Martin. Well , hopefully I will get to have something signed when you visit Joesph-Beth Booksellers in Lexington, KY for you future book signings.

Re: Con Carolinas
There were days when I could sign for as many people as wanted signatures... as many books as they wanted... with personal inscriptions on each. Those days, alas, are gone.

These days I do two books for each customer, straight signatures, no personalizations... and I still get lines that wear me out. I did two autograph sessions, each of ninety minutes. You HAVE to cap the lines at some point, or I'd be sitting and signing all day.

I thought I'd taken care of everyone, but it appears not. Sorry.

Re: Con Carolinas
I don't mind having the lines capped, I can totally understand that if they were not, the lines would stretch on forever. The way the lines were formed was very unfair and unorganized. It was great getting to see you and hear you talk on matters other than A Song of Ice and Fire. And , Ser, you do not have to apologize.
