random things  
I've somehow been plodding through bits of ... work-related things ... (and hundreds of LJ posts) instead of reading either CIVIL WAR or EMPIRE OF IVORY. Guess I'll read those in the morning. But as I've been plodding, I've remembered a bunch of detaily cool things that are pretty much totally not con related that I'm going to ... make a list of. o.o

Cool Things:

- On the way home, at the JFK international terminal, I found two copies of COYOTE DREAMS in the 'music & books' bookshop. I signed them. It confused the woman behind the counter a *lot*. :)

- At the con, a woman who worked at a Borders told me they had a big ol' poster of the HEART OF STONE cover up next to my books! YAY!

- When I got home there was a package with the Australian edition of THE FIREBIRD DECEPTION awaiting me! It's a two-in-one Mills & Boon Romantic Suspense publication (I think Erica Orloff is the other author paired with me), and I only knew they were publishing them down under 'cause somebody emailed me because she'd enjoyed CARDINAL RULE so much. Maybe I can get some extra copies so I have a few to sell!

- Betsy thinks we should go to ComicCon next summer, as Del Rey has a big booth there every year, I guess, and TQB will just be out. Twist my arm. I better get Chance out there, eh?

Can you imagine the person buying it as something great to read on a trans-Atlantic flight and then flipping it open to see it was signed?! Or do you carry around those little "signed by the author" stickers?

I do not carry around those stickers, no. :) Hopefully it'll make somebody's day!

Just got a delivery from Amazon including Thunderbird Falls and Coyete Dreams - looking forward to reading them.

Hooray! Do you have WINTER MOON, the anthology with "Banshee Cries" in it? If not, email me your address and I'll send you a copy. :)

Many thanks, but I do have a copy, which I enjoyed a lot

Damn right you should come to ComicCon.

Oh, reminded--did you ever get the package I sent?
kitmizkit on August 15th, 2007 11:01 am (UTC)
Yes! It's in the bedroom now, and it's really cool! Sadly, one of the arms did get broken a bit in shipping, but it's still very pretty! Thank you! I've been meaning to mention it for two weeks. *sheepish*
Jannejanne on August 15th, 2007 02:55 pm (UTC)
All is well, then. Happy belated and all that :)

You...you just randomly signed the books on display?!

Gah, woman. That is incredibly cool but I'm most definitely Not Happy because there's no way I'll be able to get myself to JFK to snatch one of those copies!!!

Tee hee. Random Acts of Authorial Awesomeness.

There are some random signed books in Borders bookstores around Mystik, Conneticut, too... :)

Just make sure you don't get mistaken for a vandal in Alice Springs.

(On the other hand, that person was pretty obscure.)

*laughs* I brought the books up to the front counter and explained I'd written them before I signed them, which is what I always do. It didn't make the woman any less confused, though. :)

/agree with all of the above on the Random Author Signing of the books. That would have definetly made my day if I was traveling thru JFK! :)
