    Thanks skimom2 . So happy you had a good time, and signed book too.

    One more venue and homeward bound... indeed, he needs his Molly time-- grandkids too.

    I'm going to tell a bit about my experience in Albuquerque now. :)
    I had a really good time. Spent many hours in line and chatted with some nice people. I also made a friend in Nornee. I hope to be able to stay in touch with her. :) I wasn't able to get many pictures because they asked us not to take any during the talk. (I'll see what I can do about getting the couple of blurry pics I did get into my computer and share them soon.)
    Listening to Stephen King and George R.R. Martin was just fun. They talked about family, stories, inspirations...I know if I try to go into specifics I'll likely just mess it all up, so I say it's best for you all to wait until you can see it for yourselves. Which should happen...they recorded the whole thing and a woman from the bookstore that hosted the event said it would be available for public viewing soon. I forgot her name, sorry. She also gave a nice thank you to Marsha, Moderator, and some others for all the hard work they did making the tour happen and be successful.
    It was the first time I got to see SK and I'm so glad I got to go! I will remember it always. I had an excellent seat, right in the middle with just a few people in front of me. Oh, and I didn't get a signed book, but I'm going to enjoy the story just the same. I'll just keep hoping that one day I'll be able to add a signed book to my SK collection.

    My trip was good and nothing really bad happened. The car was great, the weather was hot and dry. The hotel was nice. There was just one thing...They have some really creepy bugs in Albuquerque! I am not a fan of big bugs! They say they are water bugs, I say they look like huge cockroaches. Gross...ick...shudder. They jump at you, too. In my attempt to get away from one that was harassing me and jumping on me, I tripped over something and fell all over the sidewalk. I was glad there was almost no one around to see me! I'm sure it was hilarious! Acting girlie about a bug...:a11:

    Thank you Debbie913 . Sorry you had a bad experience with the water bug-- we have them in FL too. Glad you enjoyed the event.

    Great. Is there a way to do that like mailing you a copy with the return postage?

    It was a great night! I was so happy to meet up with you and your daughter too. It's much more fun to sit by somebody you know than by a stranger.
    I really enjoyed hearing Mr. King talk also. He was so genuinely nice. He said "scary Steve doesn't travel." Even though I didn't get a signed book it was still a wonderful experience. And since Mr. King is getting older (aren't we all) it's probably the only time I'll ever get that opportunity.
    I echo skimom2 's gratitude. Tell him thanks from me too Ms Mod!

    And all my pictures were crappy. Sorry!

    I just watched the entire Utah event on YouTube. Seemed like a great night, even with many stories we've all heard before. Steve always makes it funny. Did he answer many questions from audience? Thanks.

    Well I had a nice start to my day. Woke up this morning to the sound of rain so I reached for my tablet to browse the newsfeeds. Barnes & Noble's Facebook page had the video of SK's appearance (from yesterday, I believe), including the Q&A session. What a great way to spend the first hour of my morning: with Uncle Stevie. :)

    He only answered a few questions. He said he was tired. I would be too after that many different cities!

    My daughter said it wasn't even like sitting with a stranger (you reminded her of my aunts--lol).

    So excited reading all these posts. What a wonderful time everyone had (Dani included, well, at least at the event, too bad for all the trouble before and after). It really is a pleasure to get to go to these events. Few people would understand how cool it is to see your favorite author! I have to say, I am jealous about those who saw George R.R. Martin too. Wow, what a fabulous opportunity!

    That would be the best way. I'll send you the office address in a Conversation. Just let me know, too, if you want it flat-signed or personalized.

    What do these fetch on eBay on average?

    The office address? Probably nothing as it's already out there with a little hunting. ;-D

    Duh...now I get it...what would my autograph get. Probably would devalue the book. :D

    Here's the link to Steve's Reno talk. Bev Vincent passed it along and tells me he did not have to sign in to Facebook to watch it.

    Time for that second cup of coffee? Never devalue a book-- remember you are the one who finds those long lost manuscripts!
