I brought the Ultimate Collection to the show. This was another heavy book I bought from Amazon that was I carrying around all day. By the end of the day I was happy to unload my backpack.
When I got to the show, I saw Boris and Julie sitting at their table. No one was in line. Hmmm, maybe they aren’t open yet. I bumped into a friend and he recommended I get Michele Rodriguez first thing. So I did. And just as I was finishing with Michelle they were leaving. Rats!
Are they leaving because no one came to see them? It happens. Or were they taking a break. I looked over the table and they did post a sign saying they would be back. Good. I wasn’t carrying a 5 pound book for nothing.
After an hour or so they returned and a line had formed. Several of the people in front of me had bags (note the plural) of items to get signed. I was wondering if I would be in line all day. I took a deep breath and just tried to embrace my inner cow. This was important to me and if I stood all day in this line it would be worth it. I still had the next day to pick up the remaining autographs I wanted.
Luckily, those bags were for some other artist and some other poor fan would be waiting hours behind these people. But not me and not this day.
I asked both to sign the book. I told Boris how much I enjoyed the cover of the World of Tiers series. He nodded quietly and told me he was glad I enjoyed them. I really had nothing else to say. I took my heavy book and carefully put it back in my bag to lug around for the rest of the day.
