Please don't think that I am blaming you in any way, but there have been a couple of items (different editions of books, etc.) over the years that have appeared on Lilja's site that I would have never have known about otherwise and would have missed out on the opportunity to purchase them to add to my collection. This is what I was referring to in my post. I agree that he shouldn't post something like the title and/or release date of an upcoming book until it's posted on the SKMB.
Not taking it that way at all. It was the latter issue I was referring to.

Everyone I talked to loved the son/father interaction. Owen calling him Dad and the hug at the end of the tour was priceless! I thoroughly enjoyed the St Louis Stop. Its been many years (Insomnia) since he stopped here!

Job well done MR KING, Owen and the best Moderator in the country (world)!!!! Lets do it again in June with the OUTSIDER.

The most original question from the TO session ( IMO anyway ) was when a woman from the audience got the mic and then said:
" In the Dark Tower, your characters are named Roland, Oy, Susannah, Eddie. That spells ROSE ( the first letters ). Did you do that on purpose? "
King looked at her like he was seeing somebody walking on water, he was quiet for a few seconds and then goes;
" Noooooooo...no!
Damn, I never even thought about that! It really does! OK, from here on out I`ll be claiming I did that on purpose!"...which, of course, made people holler with laughter.

What I want to know is who made those cool looking cookies? :)
Aren't they beautiful?! Not only were they cool looking but they were also delicious! Oftentimes that frosting can be bitter because it takes so much food coloring to get that intense color, but this wasn't. I missed hearing the name of the bakery that made them but could probably find out if you're really serious about who made them.

They really are stunning cookies. You don't have to find out who the bakery was... I just wondered if you had made them, and if we had to worry about the GNT wanting to get into your kitchen, also. :)
