    Thanks for trying.

    I thought having them in sealed bags allowed for a fairer distribution. The person getting the book and the person handing out the book had no idea if it was signed.

    Kudos to Powell's and the PCPA, the event went smooth without any glitches!

    Needless to say, I may have the memories (and it was indeed a great time), but seven hours of driving and I came away otherwise empty-handed.

    One of the dustjackets was less than perfect, but I'll just swap it out with the copy I got from Amazon.

    Ron, Sorry you did not get a signed copy. It was a great night but that is a bummer.

    Bummed you didn't get a signed copy, Ron. Thrilled that Martin and TD did! Though it sounds like your stop was more informative than the one in Chicago. SK kept all the discussion Owen related and didn't mention any of his upcoming projects.

    My group was just me and my GF and we waited until we got back to the car before opening our sealed bags. And we both managed to get signed copies! No complaints from me there.

    King's Portland appearance was a blast. The CEO of Powell's came out with a large red balloon which got a pretty good reaction from the crow. For those hoping the book King has coming out next June is Talisman 3, I doubt it. King said he and Peter are in discussions now about writing it. I loved the banter between Owen and Stephen. Powell's did a great job of keeping the distribution ransom. The books were all in paper bags taped shut. Everyone was then opening them in the lobby area and it was fun hearing the screams when someone got a signed copy. Of the four people in our group we got one signed book, my wife pulled it! I will get pictures of it in my collection thread soon.

    Don't remember if you were on the DT meetup list or not, but we are planning on leaving Tacoma at about 2 and get down to Bailey's at around 4:30 and just hang out (after procuring foods) before the event.
    Will not be there. Working a full day then going home to get my wife. Will probably get to the venue around 6:30 to 6:45. Have fun though!
