    Default Book Signings and Appearances-Tips and experiences

    Not sure if this should go here as it is non-King so if it needs moving, sorry to create work.

    The first link is broken... but the second one works.

    This makes me wish I lived in London, if only for one night.

    I put it in the official Harry Potter thread over there too, so if you wish to delete this...

    I think it's a good overall thread for booksigning stuff.

    Me too. I don't see any reason why it can't continue and I would love to post any King book signings on the Current News page.

    This was the author signing for Khaled Hosseni who wrote The Kite Runner. Those of you who have read it - know how amazing of a novel it is. Those who haven't, should.

    We're trying, I've put in our "one entry per household" to win tickets but there will only be one signed book per household from what I can gather.

    If we do manage to get tickets we'll do our best to get as many signed copies as possible and you're first on our list to have one.

    Thanks Ari. If King ever appears or signs I would also suggest posting in The Oracle.

    You would think, as much as the man writes about Colorado...that he would come here every now and then.

    They all came out, King, Karen Russell, Richard Russo, Jim Shepard and Heidi Pitlor. Heidi introduced them all and then King did a brief little speech about how he chose the stories and then it was onto the readings. The three authors were delightful to hear. All had wonderful reading voices. The passages they chose were witty and entertaining. They then did a short, or what was supposed to be short, Q&A. Because of the fact that all five people at the table were answering each question, they only got 5 questions done before starting the signing. The line was quite long but they did announce before the beginning of the program that King would be signing all 1000 copies of the book. So in line we went. People up the back of the church got first in line as they started it up the left side and told people to go into the center of the church and then up the left side to form the line. The line then went outside, down the steps and down the walk. Lucky for me, the people that I was with, Hubby, Robert, and Rick and Sheila Berry were in the balcony and got down before the questions started. They ended up right outside the doors. Once King did start signing, and it was only the sig, no personalizations, the line moved fast! Then another line was formed down the center isle for the other three authors.
    I ended up purchasing, before the event, the hard cover of the book, so I had that signed by everyone. Once the end of the line was visible in the church, I got into it and had the paperback that came with the ticket signed too!! WOOT!!! It was my first time with Mr. King up close and personal and it was cool. Didn't get to say much, but it was cool being with him right there!!

    SO, there's the whole story!

    As for pics, I wasn't supposed to be taking them so I took them without a flash and they came out blurry, those are the clearest two.
    Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.
