On Missed Author Events

I imagine many of you have been to an author event of some kind. I know y’all have because I’ve written about them on here. Well there’s only one store authors really come to in Houston. And I have attended multiple events there before.

Well I just randomly checked the list for the first time in months, and one of my favorite authors had an event last month. And when I say he’s one of my favorites this is what I mean. When I’m asked about my favorite authors I say three names. Robert. B. Parker. Michael Connelly. Robert Crais. That’s it. No one else gets into that sentence.

It turns out that Robert Crais was here. *sad face* Even if I couldn’t make the event I could have gotten my books signed. Costs nothing but the price of the new book. Ugh.

Has an author ever visited your hometown without you knowing it and then you found out fairly soon afterward?

  1. Deen Koontz was in my area a couple of years ago, but I knew about it. I had a connection to the person running the event, but apparently it was a closed type thing, and there were no tickets left when I found out. Maybe next time!

  2. No, never had that. I’m not sure anyone whose work I reall enjoy has come here. I don’t think our city’s big enough to attract the big names 🙂
