Damn the lack of east coast locations. I still have a hard time with the idea that hes not going that many places. Ah well maybe ill get a chance to see him someday but what ever at least ill have MB3 to hold me over.

Now he just needs to add a St. Louis stop to... then I'd be a happy camper

I'm also glad that Brandon is coming to Bailey's Crossroads, VA, which is at least somewhere near where I live/work.

It has been several years since an author I like cane anywhere near here.  I'm still hoping that guys like Jim Butcher and Pat Rothfuss make it to my area with their next books.

I tend to be more of a lurker on this site than a poster, but I'm super excited about tomorrow's release and just wanted to say that I've pre-ordered 2 books (one for me, one for an Aunt in Texas) and will be in line with the rest for Provo's signing tomorrow! I'll see y'all there!

You can drive to Ohio. You Michganders do it all the time to go to Cedar Point. Brandon is at least as interesting.

What no Canadian locations?! /sad

Ah well. I'm sure he'll come up here and brave the crazy Canucks at some point during his life.

I've never been to a signing or met any of the authors I liked. Going to have to find one or two I can get at in the future.

Why does everyone go to ohio. Almost all the authors i know tour to Ohio. Whats so dandy about Ohio?

Seriously, come to Michigan. *holds a flat, blank gaze.* Come.

Cool! Hope it's fun. I wonder if SE will be in attendance...

I was at the DC book signing last night.  Lots of fun.

There were about 30 people there.  Brandon read chapter 2 from Hero of Ages, and then, I believe, a excerpt from the series he was working on before the Wheel of Time book deal came along (something about Kings, I can't remember the title right now).

He signed all the books put in front of him, and was very conversational with each person.  I really liked the personal interaction, and the eye contact from Brandon.  I've been to signing where you never get within 10 feet of the author, and the book you get back signed may or may not be the one you gave the store employee to hand to him.

He answered questions for 45 minutes afterwards, but I had to leave when he started answering spoiler questions about Hero of Ages.  I've finished the book, but it was getting late, and I had a long drive to get home.

All in all, a great time.

He read an excerpt of Way of Kings? Uh, I suspect Brandon is being a bad boy... I'm sure he's picked a good reason to rationalize it though.

I dunno, he read a little bit of the first chapter of AvEL at the FE realease party, and he had just gotten a contract with Scolastic to sell it.  I liked it because it really made me want to read the books, so maybe it's to start building a hype for the books?
"The custom of royalty in referring to oneself is to naturally employ the royal 'we'.  We are very happy, we are very sad, we are bored and suffer from ennui.  For a royal prince there's no such word as 'me', It's always 'we'.  So rightfully I should be two or three, don't you agree?"
