So, I’m home this morning, and as I’m writing this, I’m watching Guy ride off in his black and orange kit. (Kit is what they call that skin-tight outfit you sometimes see bikers wearing). It’s the first time in a week we’ve not been together, and it struck me.
The leaves here are turning, some making the change from the trees to my yard, and it’s pretty. I’m wondering if I’m going to get a “yellow” day this year, where there is an equal number of leaves on my lawn as in my tree, and the entire world is yellow. The conditions have to be perfect and they didn’t mesh last year. Maybe this time. It feels close.
I still have the pictures from the George RR Martin theater (in Santa Fe) to process, but I’ll get them up tomorrow, certinally. Today, though, I have the pictures from Poison Pen in Phonix. I have to say I was delighted in the number of readers who attended. We filled one side of the store, and then the other! There are a few photos here, but to see them all, jump on over to the website. :-)
My Poison Pen roadies! I was shocked at the number of t-shirts. You guys never fail to amaze me. I’d never been to Poison Pen before, and that usually translates into a smaller crowd, but apparently Phoenix is a great place to visit because you came from all over. Richard Kadrey was signing with me as well, and that never hurts! :-) Both Richard and I left lots of signed stock, so if you missed the signing and want one of those first-editon, blue butterfly books, they’ve got ‘em!
I had the chance to meet Barbara, the owner of Poison Pen. That’s a real treat!
Unfortunately the picture of the tomatoes didn’t turn out well as it was already in the trunk and on the way to the food bank before I knew it, but you guys came out in a wonderful fashion, and I heard there was over a hundred pounds of food that we were able to give to the local food bank. Your generosity never fails to amaze me. Thank you, guys. You rock!
