Lady K and I had a lot of fun last night at the book signing for John Connolly http://www.johnconnollybooks.com/, author of the Charlie Parker series as well as several other excellent thrillers http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/c/john-connolly/. I came loaded with two books from Mt Git'r'Read and bought more (of course) from Cynthia's stacks that she brought from her shop, High Crimes Mystery Bookshop http://www.highcrimesbooks.com/ . John was a sweetie and didn't have any kind of limit on how many books he'd sign or how long he'd visit. Good thing, too, since Lady K was pitching story ideas and enjoying chatting with the nice "He really doesn't sound Irish" guy.
We were treated to an hour of John chatting about his writing, his new book, he read from notes for his new book, stories from real life that are stranger than fiction. All in that lovely Irish accent...like I said, he could have read from the phone book and I'd have been fine. But the evening was so much better.
