I went to my 3rd
Authorpalooza today, and this one was again in Orem. This time was pretty nice, but I think they dolled the place up because Brandon Sanderson was there.
Once again the organizers forgot to get 2 seats for Alien Hand Syndrome
, and there was scrambling. We sat next to Dan Willis again, and there were several of the old guard. It's a little like a reunion.
There was a long queue to see Sanderson, and only a few of them bothered to look at the other tables. We had a few lookers, and we gave our little pitch, but there were really no takers. No signing boobs today either, though the vogue thing was to ask us to sign their Nook
At the very end Sanderson's queue let up, and I decided to get his new book. He in turn came over to see us, and he looked through the book, and told us (mostly Alan) how he loved DamnIntering.com, and was sad nothing new came up. Then he bought our one sale of the day.
I'll bet Sanderson still won't remember me, but he'll remember Alan ... lame.
