Yeah, I thought that was funny, like it will be kept a secret

 

Also, these books have BOOKPLATES, which means a fancy sticker stuck to the title page inside the book.

No fancy, bound with a signature page versions for the London fans

A couple of weeks ago I posted somewhere here that I thought I heard there was a Waterstones London signing happening. I concluded I had dreamt it. OK, so this is happening, I am awake??

I'm hearing you are to be questioned on the 21 rules prior to entry. 85% the pass rate

Way to steal Stevie's thunder, Boss!

But seriously...this week is becoming a bit too high stakes for me. The pressure is ridiculous.

Good luck everyone and if anyone gets a ticket the can't make it - dibs please.

Hmm.. could be so, indeed, but having been in that trade for a loooong time, that tipped-in sheet that you all got, well, that would be referred to as a book plate also.  

 

Not sure if I need to do this. I've got the book, I don't need an autograph and (I'm not knocking anyone who went and enjoyed ) not sure how much this kind of meeting will mean to me. 
Obviously, money is a big factor right now. That's probably taming my enthusiasm a little,too.
