I'll be coming with a large group of friends tomorrow for the day (and all the Butcher events!). And, at least at this point, we're all coming dressed as Dresden characters. I'll be dressed as Murphy!

Also, for those of us eating healthy, there is an Outback just down the road from the Con if Mr. Butcher is so inclined to join us for vitals and libations afterwards tomorrow.  ;D

Anyone hanging in the hotel tonight?  I'm not going to the ball, so...

I have actually never been to a signing in my life, so this will be my first one. So, can anyone be so kind as to explain to me how it goes? Do you bring your own books to get signed, or will he only sign them if you bought them at the bookstore that day? And usually, how many does he sign? Thanks!

Went today. Jim's talk was awesome. I'll be the guy walking around with a dude dressed as Harry. I'm the Will Borden to his Harry Dresden.

See y'all tomorrow, folks!

I think he'll sign any book. If lines are long probably two might be polite (Though you could get in line again for more.). You can also chat
briefly, ask a question, and maybe take a pic, depending on his preferences/local rules.

  As A rule Jim will defer to the rules of the con. That said his rule of thumb is to sign 3 books per trip through line. so if you have 6 books get 3 signed then get back in line to get the next 3 signed. Myyrdn (Garrett) is a good guide for this, he's been to quite a few of these and is a great guy to boot.

Well, things don't get started til after lunch, it looks like, so personally, I'm at B&N ;) I hope to be in the garden room upstairs at noon for Sarah Zettel's meet the author event, then will go to the Seelie/unseelie panel that jb's on at 1,  and of course his spotlight at 2ish.

 I'm wearing black pants, a swirly black/blueish shirt, a blackened denarius on a necklace, and will probably have a green-ish blue open front sweater over the ensemble. ;)
