Met Mr King for the 1st time yesterday ! :) Travelled to Paris from London, waited 5 hours with a lovely bunch of King fans and I'm overjoyed. I took my "Lisey's Story" to be signed and gave Stephen a Cross pen engraved " Stevie, thanks for all the good times". He was really appreciative of it, he said it was beautiful. I still haven't quite landed fully, I can't believe it's finally happened. Also,straight after the signing a french channel put a mike and a camera in my face and asked me what it felt like meeting Stephen King so I told them : " It feels like meeting my best friend for the first time :) "
So happy you saw SK and had a book signed. That is a lifetime experience. Wow!

I watched the press conference video yesterday. Wow Finland was involved too with a
question to Steve. I wish I could have go too, bummer :grumpy:. My biggest dream is to someday meet Steve face to face
but guess that's never gonna happen. If he not decide to come to EU third time someday and I am able to go then.
This time I couldn't go cause there was no one with whom to travel. My sister study in Sweden and my friends is busy with
their families. Steve have done a great job so far. There was much people at the book signing.

Thanks for the pics and info Ms. Mod! How's Paris?
Yesterday was nice, but it's mostly been raining. Got caught in a couple of showers this afternoon as I was wandering around for about 3 hours trying to find my way back to the hotel. Directionally challenged should be my middle name! :) I'm sure that I was close several times but kept getting turned around even with the GPS map on my phone. Was nearly at the point of breaking down when a very nice doorman gave me directions that finally led me back to the right street. I was afraid it was going to get dark before I got back and then I'd really be in trouble.

He was tired of watching you walk by him every 15 mintues. :howdy:

Just finished part 1 and I can't believe how hard it was for me personally to understand people. I had to really focus to understand and sometimes even then I couldn't.

I love that his school "bus" was a hearse. I never heard that before.

He's as popular as the Justin Bieber, so we'll just call him the the Steebes.

And I want graveyard photos! Him visiting Jim M. and wearing lipstick and going through the catacombs. sigh. I wish I was there.

Thank you all for posting your experiences! Marsha, I am so happy for you (and more than a bit jealous) just for getting to see Paris, (let alone going along with the big guy)! It really means a lot to us fans for you to share with us!
I double that! Thank you Marsha.
I held out for the best book tour trip so far, for sure! Glad I can bring a little of it to share with you. :)

What a beautiful answer Beverley!!! I think you just expressed exactly what many of us would all feel! So happy that you were able to go to the signing!
Thanks :) Still buzzing I have to say... Even more now that i have just found on lilja's library fb page a picture of Stephen signing a book with the actual pen I gave him. I can almost read the words I got engraved for him ! :) I did a massive double take ! I hadn't realised that he actually got the pen out of the box after I left, and viewing more videos from the day now i think he that he might have signed about 250 copies with it ! He changed from a white pen to the black with gold appointments i got him. It sounds probably silly to a lot of people but I'm shaking with emotion to think that maybe he will write with it some more after that :) ( emotion and a cold i caught yesterday, it was so cold at dawn! :))
Here's the picture
