Moved from previous Blog: *insert author name* is Awesome!

I got on a author autograph kick for a few weeks and was quite successful. I'm going to combine the posts and repost them here:

Jim Butcher is Awesome!

I went to a book signing for Jim's newest Dresden Files book Turn Coat. It was an awesome time and Jim is a great speaker. I took video and posted it up on youtube.





Patrick Rothfuss is Awesome!!

I recently read a book called "The Name of the Wind" by Patrick Rothfuss. An excellent read and simply amazing that it's the author's first novel. There are very big things ahead for Pat. I am frequent reader of his blog (www.patrickrothfuss.com) and he seemed very down to earth an happy to receive feedback from fans. So I wrote him a letter, which is not something I've done for any author I've been a fan of before. I sent him the picture below and a note requesting him to sign it. I included a Thai keychain and some Thai currency...a mock bribe so to speak. Then a couple weeks later I got this back! Thank you Mr. Rothfuss.

Oh and buy this man's book!!!...two of them!!


Piers Anthony is Awesome!!

After some back and forth through snail mail I was able to get the Ogre himself to sign my picture. Very awesome for an author of his stature to still take the time to sign silly photos for fans.
