I said in August, when we talked about fan mail, that I planned on expanding that to live meetings when the time was right. Well, that time is now!

  • Have you ever met one of your favorite authors? Gotten their autograph?
  • How about an author you felt only so-so about, but got their autograph anyway? Like, say, at a book-signing a friend dragged you to?
  • How about stumbling across a book signing or reading and being so captivated, you bought the book?


Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

    I’m sorry to say that I have not, to the best of my memory, attended a book signing. I don’t recall ever meeting any of my favorite authors either. My kids did attend a workshop by the author of the Michigan Chillers Series several years ago. Happy BTT!

    My response is here and I’d like anyone who has a similar story to leave me a comment on my blog entry. So it’s a bit different but there’s got to be more of you out there that knew someone talented before they were known to the world.
