In other book signing news,

a mystery publisher has posted an ad on craigslist, looking for fakers to autograph books for two bestselling authors. The audacity! (Thanks again to Dave Lull.)


  1. LOL...that was a really great article. Loved the part about the fan wanting Stephen King's blood. I will not have to worry about such things I dare say.

  2. You never know, merelyme, keep on writing and blogging and you might end up with some intense fans of your own. :)

  3. Tod Goldberg recently posted "transcripts of actual conversations" he's had at book signings.

    The signings were part of events to promote his first novelization of a TV series, about which he wrote for the LA Times: 'Burn Notice': The Novel, asking:

    "Does a real writer accept a gig doing books spun off from films or TV shows?"

  4. Oh, that was funny, thanks Dave. The concept of a "real writer" is an interesting one, eh? That should generate a passionate response.
