Yesterday I hauled my ass to Forbidden Planet on Shaftesbury Avenue for a multi-author book signing. We were graced by the presence of Mark Charan Newton, Adam Nevill and *fanfare* China Mieville!
The signing was only part of the attraction, however: a massive group of bloggers all decided to descend en masse (including representatives from My Favourite Books, Kamvision, Speculative Book Review, Un:Bound, and many more!) Some of them I have met previously on my forays to Eastercon and the Headline party, and some of them I met for the first time.
I attempted not to embarrass myself by tripping up in front of China; I had a really lovely chat with Adam (who was amazingly gracious about my review of Apartment 16 - a really lovely guy!); and I snarked Mark because he decided to scribble in Nights of Villjamur!
I'm now just going to put a succession of pictures because I'm sure that is what people most want to see!

Mark surrounded by evil blogging types! Check out the red eyes! Demonic!
Our wonderful host, Danie!

Mark's so professional *grin*
Me and books! A familiar sight!
I managed to untie my tongue sufficiently to ask for a picture of my new favourite author *blush*
And look what he wrote in my book!
I had a great time! With thanks to Tor UK, Chloe and Danie for making it all happen!
