Long story: I went to see Patrick Rothfuss at BookPeople (Austin, TX) on Monday night. I didn’t know what to expect, since I’ve never gone to a reading or author signing before. Molly and I bought his books, and a copy for a friend, sat down, and waited. We were not prepared for how awesome Patrick Rothfuss is.
I mean, obviously he’s awesome, right? He wrote two great books, and we’re eagerly awaiting the third. But I didn’t know how personable and relatable he’d be. He was super-nice, and talked about being a parent and raising good children. He spoke about giving bad reviews, and why he doesn’t usually give them. Instead, he wants to talk about books he loves.
It was a great night, and we got two extra books signed by him, a copy each of The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear. Join my e-mail list here, and you’ll be entered to win one of the signed books.
A few things: I will not trade or sell your e-mail. Nor will I spam you. I’ll send out e-mails to announce my new book releases and contests, or news about the company.
I’ll announce the winners in about a week!
