The Unusual Suspects + Book Signing Woes

Not too long ago, I had lunch with these suspects . . .

That's Dan Santat, who illustrates MUCHO books, including "Bobby vs. Girls (Accidentally) Now in Paperback"*, and created the Disney TV show The Replacements. And on the right is Bob Boyle who also writes/illustrates, plus was a producer on Fairly Odd Parents, and has a show on Nick Jr called Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!

I too have a television show. It's called, "Watch Lisa Not Get Enough Sleep." Oh wait, I forgot. That show hasn't been made yet.

Anyway, we didn't get much eating done, because we were so busy reading interesting, charming, awe-inspiring books . . .


Earlier this month, Bob had a signing for HUGO at our local indie, Vroman's in Pasadena . . .

I don't think it's fair that illustrators DRAW pictures at book signings. It makes us authors (a.k.a. Me) look boring. Plus, I always get stuck sitting next to famous author/illustrators at signings.

Here's an author (a.k.a. Me) sitting next to Mark Teague, who insisted on drawing pictures in every one of the million books he signed . . .

Wait! Wait! I know, I'll start writing at book signings, and people can watch me construct sentences. YES! Here's a live-action-3-D-surround-sound-Avatar-style video of me writing . . .

See? Wasn't that exiciting?

What? Oh.

Check out this cool/ever-so-sad-but-true video that's been making the rounds. It tells of another author's book signing woes . . .

*The paperback part isn't really in the official title, but the book did go into paperback this month!!!!

See . . .
