    You could still get your other items done, you just needed to have a copy of the new book at first to get in the line. That is pretty standard for most book signings that I have ever done. After all, the author and the bookstore want to sell the new book. Joe took care of the rest of the items at the end of the signing. Still a nice guy.
    This is news to me, the sign and the workers all indicated if you wanted anything *but* Throttle signed you would have to go to the end of the line after he signed it. Ive been to several of his signings and this was the first time this happened. I wasnt blaming Joe, though.

    I was watching from the beginning to the end. Most people put throttle on top and the other two underneath. But you are right. That was the workers narrative. Joe did not care! And I know you were not blaming joe. But if you did not have throttle. One worker was telling people to go to end of line

    I was at the Nashua NH event. I was also confused by the wording of 3 books signed, but I only brought 2 other books with me and he graciously signed the other 2 right after signing Full Throttle. The way it was worded by the woman working there did make it sound like you could only get Full Throttle signed, but people in front of me were giving him other books so I did the same. Plus I was near the front and had he chose not to sign it I would have most likely left with just Full Throttle.

    As for the event, I thought Joe was highly entertaining. I loved hearing his stories. There were tons of people there, the most out of any of his events that I've been to in the past. Maybe he's just becoming more popular though. The first event I went to was for Horns, and there were probably about 30-40 people there? I'm not sure how many were at this one but the place was packed. I felt so bad for all the people that got stuck standing, and I was surprised they didn't have more chairs for everyone considering there was a lot of room to put some out. Maybe they just weren't used to hosting such a big event.

    Saw Joe in Bangor on the 24th of Oct. This was about the 5th time maybe? Same stories, different venue but always a good time. I had Full Throttle inscribed and my Horns AGE. I wanted a doodle in Horns but I think he was tired and since he didn't offer it up, I didn't ask. This was my friends first time seeing him and she has a daughter named Harper so I told her she should get a copy of The Fireman and have it inscribed to Harper. He doodled the phoenix in it for her, it was cute. For my Full Throttle I asked him to inscribe the line from Late Returns about reading books being like trying on other people's lives. I had it in my head all week and when I finally got up there drew a total blank on it. It finally came to me. Lol. I also asked him about the original ending to NOS4A2 since he told the story about it and his mom at the King/Hill event. I actually liked it better than how he decided to end it but I didn't tell him that
    For those that want to know(SPOILERS if you haven't read it yet!) he was going to have Wayne come into the bedroom holding a knife with a creepy Christmasland grin on his face, sit down on the bed next to Lou and say Merry Christmas. The End. I'm not telling it as good as he did but that's the gist. How creepy would that have been!

    Yeah that's the alternate ending in the Subterranean Press edition. The story is he was committed to including that until Tabitha told him to change it.

    It's an interesting idea but it reminds me of King's story about the original ending to Misery when it was just a novella where Annie kills Paul and binds the novel with his skin. As King says, it's one thing to end a novella like that it's another to have the reader committed to seeing a character through over the course of a full novel and pull the rug up from them like that. I think having a huge novel like NOS4A2 ending on such a grim note with all of Vic's sacrifice being for naught would have been like that.

    Question for those the US who ordered the Goldsboro UK signed edition of Full Throttle: do you have it yet?

    I ordered it back in August, and got an immediate "Order Processing" email, but nothing since then. No shipping notice, no book.

    Am I alone?

    It seems to me that the address verification should be followed by a timely shipping of the item. If it takes weeks, the address could potentially change.

    Agreed. I should probably email them and check on the status.

    I picked up the Goldsboro Fireman, but I missed out on their Full Throttle, I don't know why I didn't think to search for it. Love the embossed page they've added. I wonder what the resale on them will be?

    That's good to know. I haven't had any trouble with them in the past and they always package well. I wonder if there was a hiccup somewhere along the way.

    Thing is a monster. Love the texture of the jacket too (different).

    Congrats on your Full Throttle. If you did not get it already J. Whilley has a cool slip for it too (note: I do not make a penny by mentioning it)

    The Goldsboro edition, if I'm remembering correctly, is slipcased.

    That edition of NOS4A2 is a beast! Congrats!
