I try to get there as well, will you do be signings I was thinking of getting Godblind for a present for a  young friend. It be awesome.

I don't know what you could scribble something inspirational as she's still in uni and she loves reading.

I'm Saloninus, by the way. And I tell lies, from time to time. Which goes to prove the old rule; never entirely trust a man who talks about himself in the third person.

Hmmm.... if I cancel my Amazon pre-order, and one of my F-F friends were pick up a book and have the AUTHOR HERSELF!!!!!!!!!! sign it, and then send me the book, and trust I'd pay (heh heh), then I could almost be there!

Maybe the inscription could read: "Glad you bought my book. Now f'ing write yours. Love and a kick in the arse, Anna"
Or something suitably inspirational like that.  ;D ;D

I asked Adrian Selby at the FF meet up to write "Thanks for guilt-tripping me into the buying the book" in Snakewood as a joke - so he did! Both the best and worst dedication I've got! But that Adrian, what a legend - love him.  ;) ;)

So I'm happy to write anything! You could always bank transfer the money and postage beforehand to your dedicated purchaser...

@Eclipse, I'm sure @AnnaStephens could leave a signed copy at the shop for you to pick up/buy the next day/next weekend, no?

Um, it's starting to feel real in the same way that going to collect my exam results felt real - scary, hoping you've done it right, with the potential for celebration afterwards.

It's really hard to describe - I've been told many times to just enjoy it, but I'm more nervous than excited at the moment.
