I understand you're going to be in Raleigh for a reading next week. Unfortunately, it's in the middle of the week, which means I'll be in Charlotte and unable to attend. Are you by any chance doing a reading in Charlotte next week as well?

Andy: I'm pretty sure that the reading will be on the 18th. As a matter of fact, I have to get serious about checking all this out. I was going to do one on the 21st also, but couldn't. I was asked to participate in the Sycamore Hill Writer's conference, and that was an opportunity I couldn't pass up. So, not next week, but the week after. I think it's a Wednesday. Between Wednesday 18th and Friday 20th, I'll do a reading in North Carolina in the Raleigh are for anyone who might want me to do one. Do you know any other stores or groups that might be interested? Let me know. And thanks for your interest.

Best,


Jeff

Right, Wednesday, June 18th in Raleigh; Quail Ridge Books has a page about it. I'm just bad about keeping track of what week it is :-)

Unfortunately, while I live in Raleigh, I am currently working in Charlotte (a 2.5 hour drive from Raleigh), so I miss any mid-week events at home. And, since I don't really live there, I'm too unfamiliar with Charlotte's bookstore scene to be the one to organize something.

Worst case, I might have to settle for buying some of your books at Quail Ridge on the weekend and getting them to keep them for me so you can sign them when you're there.

Best,

Andreas: You never know how many people you are going to get at these things, but at least it will be you and me and Andy's books. That's a crowd compared to some I've done. Hopefully it will be better. I hear Quail Ridge is an excellent store. I look forward to meeting you.

Best,


Jeff

Actually, from reading various weblogs, there should be a few people there -- all writers.

Oh, and Andy's books.

For those in the Philadelphia Area who might be interested, I will be at the Free Library, along with Greg Frost (author of Fitcher's Brides), at 7 PM on July 23rd. I think we will be giving a talk about Illusion and Reality in Fantasy Fiction (or that's the theme we have been assigned). Most likely we will be going off on other tangents. If you are in the area or are free that night, stop by and watch us gas for an hour or so. Guaranteed to delight.

Best,


Jeff

Jeff,

I look forward to your reading at Quail Ridge next week, and bought copies of The Portrait of Mrs. Charbuque and The Fantasy Writer's Assistant and Other Stories in anticipation. "The Empire of Ice Cream" still rattles around my head at odd moments, and I think it's a brilliant story.

Jeff -- if you're looking to do some more readings, you may want to contact the Borders and Barnes and Nobles in the area -- there are about 5 of each.

Also, you may wanna call the folks at The Regulator in Durham, NC, just 30 miles from Raleigh -- they're another indie store, serving lots of Duke students (but don't hold that against 'em!) -- http://www.regbook.com/NASApp/store/IndexJsp, 919-286-2700.

Do you know John Kessel? If you're going to SycHill you probably do, or will soon. He's here in Raleigh as well.

Looking forward to your reading on the 18th!

Jeff,

It was really great to meet you last night and hear your reading of The Portrait of Mrs. Charbuque. Thank you for coming to NC. Hopefully I'll get to meet you again at World Fantasy this year, if you plan on going.

Take care.

I'd like to add my thanks as well.

I'm kind of curious. Were there more people there than you had expected?

Andreas: It was nice meeting you at the reading. Thanks for taking the time to come. Was I surprised at the amount of people. Yeah, it was a very good crowd. But I'm always surprised whether its one or fifty.

Best,

Bill: As much as I want to go to Readercon this year, I just don't think I'll be able to spare the time. Racing against a novel for a deadline and I just was away a week. Hope you guys have a good time if you go, and also hope to see you in DC for the World Fantasy.

Best,

Jeff

Hope you had a good time at SycHill; it looks like a really great crowd this year, and beautiful scenery.

See you at World Fantasy!

Hey Jeff--welcome back to the "real world!" It was a pleasure meeting you in Raleigh at your reading. Glad you made it back home in one piece from the wilds of the NC mountains.
