Well - it's not long now - less than two weeks before I leave on a jet plane. The list of authors at the literacy singing has been posted now and I have a bit of a dilema *g*. I looked through it - a number of times - and I already own the back list of all the authors I most want to meet! Linnea Sinclair - own all her books. Susan Grant - yep - I have every single one of her books too. I've read and loved both of Joanna Bourne's books. Same thing with Elizabeth Hoyt's books too! Gena Showalter - have all hers! I've been buying Toni Blakes books and have most of them. I just hope they have the one or two I don' t have there.
So, it's a bit of a dilema - do I got up to them anyway and say I'm not going to buy your books because I already have them?
I was blog hopping this morning and stopped at Book Binge. They have a review of Master of Surrender and it sounds very intriguing. I love a good Medieval. I immediately checked out Chapters and they have copies available so I thought I'd stop on the way home. But then I thought - 'wait a minute! Your pledge (which you already broke) - so I checked and Karin Tabke will be there. So there's one book I can get - YES!
When I looked at the list there were a lot of authors I hadn't heard of. So in order to get 'organized' and do homework, I'm going to go down the list of authors who will be there and check out their books before hand to see if they appeal to me.
So question - if you are an author, would it bother you if someone didn't buy your books but stopped by anyway?
And is anyone else going to check things out before hand?
