|Anne Rice meets me of all people?|
|She has a great signature!|
Well, I made the trip, got there nice and early and guess what friends? I forgot my damn vampire book at home! I hate when do something lame like that... but at
least I had my trusty camera with me... because if I would have forgotten that... well, I would have really been pissed at myself! But I digress, back to Ms. Rice... it's always interesting to see who reads an authors books when your at a book signing... I was expecting a bunch of goth looking "Twilight" people with widows peaks & phony fangs... but from what I saw, I think I was the only one who was actually sporting a widows peak there? I was there representing the tanned George Hamilton, Love at First Bite vampire faction... I guess? While I was in line, I could hear her fans talking about her (and the fact that's she's written over 30 books) they really have a connection with this lady. I have a dear friend Ana Rosa who really loves her, and finds her and her work to be a muse for her own wonderful art work (and that was another reason that I made the trek to Pasadena from Venice... so I could call her and say to her "guess where I'm at right now?") Well, since the book signing started right on time and great staff a Vroman's kept the line nice and tidy, I was standing in front of famous author in about 20 minutes with a copy of her new book (she has a very nice signature, I might add) and I must say that she really, really had a very nice energy about her (and she's from my favorite place besides Venice, CA; New Orleans!)... even though I forgot my damned vampire book! Which is now sitting on my bookshelf again unsigned... (alone & aging like Tom Cruise was in that old mansion in NOLA at the end of the movie version of Interview With The Vampire)... Well, at least I got a few nice photos & I didn't get another $54 parking ticket (see my last post!) Nice to meet you (and your staff) Ms. Rice, looking forward to reading your novel... maybe it'll inspire me to finish mine soon!
FYI: Ms. Rice will be at a book signing at The Mission Inn, in RIVERSIDE, CA on Saturday, January 8 @ 1:00 PM
|And a great smile!|
|This lady really connects with her readers!|
