Less than a week to go!
« on: August 13, 2012, 02:50:51 PM »
Wow... So, less than a week to go until Joe Abercrombie, Peter V. Brett and Myke Cole will be in London to sign some books, talk on a panel and answer your questions!

There is also Ian Irvine, Sarah Pinborough and various others coming along - so, please don't be afraid to approach those guys and ask them to sign books (or declare your love for them - I feel the need to do that to Sarah *A LOT*).

Just to confirm things for you guys:
6:00pm at Blackwells in Charing Cross Road, London.

It is in the Covent Garden region of London and apparently 'Tottenham Court Road' is the nearest station.

See you there!

Wow, Ian Irvine, ok, if I wasn't already gonna be there, I'd be clearing my schedule and rushing down there with all of his novels crooked beneath one arm and a camera to capture the moment. This man was responsible for me wanting to be a writer. This night just got even better.
I saw them on the shores
the deepening pits of their gaze
vowed immortal war
against the sighing calm
of Jaghut seas . . .

That's probably the closest, but Leicester Square is pretty close too.  If you're on the Piccadilly Line, it's not worth changing to get to Tottenham Court Road.

Thanks - looking forward to meeting a bunch of online buddies, as well as visiting the Tower again. See you around 1pm, I guess!
