Half Moon Bay Says Hi

I have to tell you, the Half Moon Bay appearance was something of a question mark for me; I didn’t know much about Bay Books, and I didn’t know if I knew anyone in that area. But you know what, The staff Bay Books did an awesome job of promoting the event, because the store was packed with folks (including my pal Michael Rawdon, there in the center of the picture, who with his friend Andrew trekked down for the event). I had a great time chatting with everyone, and when it was all done, they sent me off with a box full of cookies. You can’t beat that. So now that’s two really excellent appearances. I like this tour.

Tonight: Borderlands Books in San Francisco, which is an appearance I’ve been really looking forward to, since its been one of my favorite speciality stores for years — and yet this will be the first time I’ve been in the actual store (I’ve done signings for them at cons, though). So I’m really excited for tonight, and if you’re on the San Francisco side of the bay, you really need to be there tonight at 7, if only to see me totally geek out. (If you’re in East Bay, I’ll be at Dark Carnival in Berkeley tomorrow at 5:30 — come, it’ll be excellent!)

Gotta get ready for a radio interview. Later.

  1. Sniffle, sniffle, sniffle.

    If only I could have waited a week longer to move, as I was really looking forward to the appearance at Borderlands. (I deputised some of my Scalzi-reading friends in SF to go though. In fact, some of them were reading you unbeknownst to me, and I was unbeknownst to them, so they were quite surprised and envious when I turned up with my copy of Last Colony.)

    Never fear, there was an equally large display of The Last Colony, except that it was in the front of the store, facing the outside world.

  4. We SO wanted to be at the signing tonight, but I have an inconvenient dentist appointment :( So I’ll be calling Borderlands to have you personalize a book for us. If you haven’t been there in a while, you’ll be surprised – they’ve been renovating :)

  5. Heya! Really neat getting to hear you. I’ll upload my pictures to Flickr before the end of the weekend (they’re in camera-raw format, so I’ll need to bang on them a little); I’ll post a comment when I do.

  6. John, It was great to meet you-you’re as amusing in person as you are in your blogginess. I wish I had known there would’ve been pictures-I missed being immortalized. Ah well
