Recently I had the wonderful opportunity to see George RR Martin in person! Denver was one of his ten stops on his book signing tour. I was so thrilled to find this out. I was a little bummed because the book store told me to be there at 3 (it started at 2) because I was number 395 (there was up to 700 people). We were told he would NOT speak. So OK I get there about 2:20 and sure enough he is speaking! They have it on the loud speakers and I only hear like 5 minutes of his talk. THAT was a bummer. But otherwise it was fun. I was able to get three books signed!
Lines for the signing!
Me and Mr. Martin!
Eeeek! I cannot express how incredibly jealous I am of you! :DReplyDelete
WOW! That is *S0* amazing!!!! I watched the series, and I just downloaded the first 4 books last night!ReplyDelete
As for missing most of the talk...I did that once when I went to go see Tamora Pierce at a library signing...I was making good time, but I wasn't familiar with the area, and until I got there, I didn't realize how close I was getting to LA. Of course I hit traffic, and got there toward the tail end of her talk. But it was still an amazing experience, and I would do it all over again--And I'm sure you had a fantastic time, too!!! So happy for you!!!
You are going to love love the series! I can't wait to read your reviews nymfaux!ReplyDelete

Great Blog! Love it!!! Can't wait to read his book!ReplyDelete
Sucks that it didn't work out exactly as planned but at least you got the opportunity to meet him! I doubt he has any plans to make it out to Australia :(ReplyDelete
Soo super awesome. I would have been asking Mr. Martin to write Drogo back in and probably would have been kicked out for harassment. LOLReplyDelete
