My signed The Painted Man & my Star Wars collection.

25 Sep

Monday was an awesome day. πŸ™‚ Around ten in the morning, I was signing for a package from a courier; it had mu name on it, not the bookshop’s name, and I knew without even opening it that it was my signed copy of The Painted Man. I opened it, took out the beautiful hardcover, and read Peter’s note, and then promptly showed the copy off to everyone (not letting them handle it of course!). πŸ™‚ I was able to get a signed copy because a wonderful person was there at Peter’s signing at Forbidden Planet, and she graciously told me that she would buy me a copy and post it off to me. πŸ™‚ That person is Liz, and she’s one of the two great people at My Favourite Books; she’s also on Wonderlands, and she’s one of the nicest people I’ve never met! πŸ™‚ So, thank you, Liz, for doing this for me! πŸ™‚ And thank you, Peter, for writing such an incredible book in the first place and signing a copy for me. πŸ™‚ You guys rock! πŸ™‚

Next up, to prove what I’ve been saying about beeing a huge Star Wars fan, I thought I would put up pics of my still-growing collection. πŸ™‚ In the first pic, the poster on the left (Legacy of the Force Invinsible) was a poster I won; when Troy Denning did a book signing to promote the release of the final Legacy of the Force novel, one of the guys from TheForceNet (Jimmy Mac) was there, did an interview with Troy, and got some posters signed; I am now one of the lucky owners of an autographed poster. πŸ™‚ The poster on the right is something that Jimmy brought back from Celebration Japan, also very cool, but I have no idea what it says because it’s all in japanese. πŸ™‚ But it is Star Wars, and that’s all that counts. πŸ™‚

The second pic is a pic of all my books – well okay, not all of them; some are with friends (looking after them, I hope). πŸ™‚

Okay, that’s it. πŸ™‚ Hope someone out there is jealous! πŸ™‚ Hehehe

    OmG! My ego will not be able to fit in the building! You are very welcome and I am pleased I managed to meet Peat to get his autograph and dedication for you.

    Keep an eye on FP happenings and let me know others you want – if I’m in the area, I’ll go be a good signature slave!
