I said in August, when we talked about fan mail, that I planned on expanding that to live meetings when the time was right. Well, that time is now!
Have you ever met one of your favorite authors? Gotten their autograph?
How about an author you felt only so-so about, but got their autograph anyway? Like, say, at a book-signing a friend dragged you to?
How about stumbling across a book signing or reading and being so captivated, you bought the book?
Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!
Let's see... I live in a relatively remote area of the United States. We don't get many authors wandering into the local bookstore. That said, however, I have met one of my favorite authors, Steve Hamilton. He writes a series of books called the Alex McKnight series and it is set, loosely, in this area. He usually makes a visit once a year. I've been to one of his signings. I went later in the event and I was the only one there for about 10 minutes. He signed my book (A Stolen Season) and we chatted for several minutes. He recommended a couple of authors and we discussed his characters like they were real people. It was great.
As for the other two questions - nope. No such luck on either.
