Tonight should be a fun night. Brandon Sanderson, (author of Elantris, the Mistborn Trilogy, and The Gathering Storm (Wheel of Time, Book 12)) is going to be at a book signing tonight in Minneapolis – just a few miles from my in-laws. So driving down a little early (working from the road) in order to make it.
Brandon Sanderson and Patrick Rothfuss are my two favorite authors, so getting to see/meet one of them is awesome. I grabbed my copy of The Gathering Storm to hopefully get signed, along with the paperback copies of Mistborn (book 1) and Elantris. Though I am not sure if I will bring either of the paperbacks since they are kind of worn. I am thinking I might pick up a hard copy of Warbreaker to support the store and if Brandon will sign more than one, have that one signed as well.
Getting The Gathering Storm signed in person would be awesome. (Hopefully *will* be!) The series that I have been reading since the mid-90s that is my all-time favorite, inspired me to write, signed by an author who also helps inspire me to write… yea will have to try and avoid fanboy antics.
I hope to post some pictures up here later!
