I don't have a lot to add to this topic. I have two non IRL signing experiences. They fall under the "If I didn't have bad luck I would have no luck at all" category. The first there was a really bad snow storm. The signing wasn't cancelled but the roads were so bad and I was so far away I didn't want to risk it.
The second happened right here in my tiny little town at our tiny little library. Needless to say, we do not get a lot of authors coming around to do signings here. The one time we do, I'm out of the state.
I do find books from being a people watcher. While at my sons Tae Kwon Do class I tend to watch what everyone else is reading. The worst was when I ended up next to someone's dad. Looked over to see what he was reading and it was in a foreign language. I don't speak/read any languages but English but spent the entire class trying to figure out what his book was!.
That was enough non stuff from me. I'm off to read some Real experiences from others. Have a Great Day!


  1. Maybe third time's the charm? :)

    (I people watch too, especially at the airport!)

  2. I do enjoy to people watch too and see what they are reading too.

  3. Keep trying and you will find people to network with, even in your tiny town! :)

  4. Kristina, I'm sure your luck will turn and you WILL go to a signing!

    I'm always checking what others are reading too!
