So when I posted the upcoming tour dates, people asked a bunch of really good questions in the comments of the blog.
Some of the questions were easy to answer. Like this one:
- “Will you sign my Kindle?”
There. See how easy that was? Good question. Quick answer. Everyone wins.
On the other hand, some questions were harder to answer. Such as:
- “Will you sign my nook?”
Um. That kinda depends. If you mean the e-reader. Then yeah. Sure.
If you mean something else…. Well. Then I’m not sure.
I think I’ll have to check with my PR people. And Sarah. And OSHA.
Seriously though. There were a *lot* of good questions. Some of them brought up issues I hadn’t even thought of yet.
So I need to do some research before I give you any answers. I don’t want to say one thing then change my answer later.
While I’m compiling the list of official answers, here’s a few things that might amuse you.
First, a picture I just re-discovered from the little mini-tour I took last March. I can’t remember if I ever got around to posting it before.
If you’re wondering what my events are like, this might give you a clue.
At this particular signing, a lot of people wanted their pictures taken with me, but that was making the line move really slowly. I asked everyone if it wouldn’t be simpler to do a group photo instead, and it turned out there was a cool photographer with a great camera in among my readers.
About two thirds of the folks there wanted to be in the photo. This one was my favorite. We did a standard smiling one too. But that was boring, so we did a few more. The one where everyone made crazy eyes was my second favorite.
In other news, Brandon Sanderson seems to have taken umbrage at the tangible proof of my writing prowess. I wasn’t going to bring it up, but since he already twittered about it, there doesn’t seem to be any point in hiding the fact that the ARC for The Wise Man’s Fear is longer than the ARC for The Way of Kings.
Mind you, these are both the unedited advance copies of our respective works. What’s more, layout counts for a lot in these situations. So I wouldn’t dare imply that my book is, in fact, bigger than his. More majestic, perhaps. But bigger? No. I’d never claim that. That would be gauche.
Lastly, a quick reminder that I will be doing a reading/signing northern Michigan this upcoming Thursday (the 20th). Details here.
