I realized from perusing John Scalzi’s blog that he would be in my area today, signing copies of his new book, The Collapsing Empire. My husband and I are both fans, but unfortunately we didn’t make it, mostly because I didn’t read the actual blog post detailing the event until the event was over.
It’s all for a good cause, though- my current project Infinity is now at just over 40,000 words. I still have a way to go before I have a first draft finished, but I’m a bit over halfway done. The reason I missed the event is that I was busy writing instead of checking Twitter and reading blog posts to learn when the event was.
It will probably be some time before Mr. Scalzi is signing books in this area again, but I will try to keep out a more vigilant eye. Who knows, maybe by the time he comes around again I may have a completed draft of my own book!
While we wait, we will wander over to the bookstores he has been at most recently and see if there are copies of signed books lurking on the shelves.
Have a great night.
