It’s always frustrated me that most book signings occur in obscure locations somewhere in Oklahoma, Texas or some backwoods town in Florida (if you’re from this town, I’m sorry…I don’t mean to offend). Why not San Francisco? I always asked…it was beyond annoying. I don’t have the funds nor the inclination to travel thousands of miles to have a book signed, unless Jane Austen were coming back from the grave to sign copies of PERSUASION or PRIDE AND PREJUDICE (or for that matter, even the sucky and ridiculous MANSFIELD PARK which I absolutely loathe)! In that case, I mostly definitely would wipe out my 401K (what little is in it) and hop on a flight.
It was with much pleasure recently that I discovered that two…yes, TWO, of my favorite authors are signing books here in the CITY BY THE BAY (or close to it, which is good enough for me): CANDICE HERN and JULIA QUINN.
Finally…now, if only we could get Mary Balogh and Lisa Kleypas and the AVON authors to come here…hmmm.
