Well - I blew it.
Decided that I was silly to feel hesitant about going to the book signing - I knew I really wanted to go. So while we were out shopping last night I stopped in at the bookshop where it was going to be held to make sure I had the day and time right.
Didn't see any signs advertising for it, and that was worrisome.
Had to break down and ask.
The signing was the night before.
I did buy one of the autographed copies of the new book.
If I can get my life organised after the baby, I'll try to request an interview with him, I think. That's what I wanted to do with the first book, but ran out of time. How cool would that be. (and good growth for wimpy little me too, I should think)
