OSC is doing a signing at the BYU Bookstore this Friday, December 8 starting at 12:00pm. I am told that he will stay as long as there are people wanting books signed. I hope this means he'll be there for a while, because I can't get in line until after work.

Hooray! I wasn't going to buy Empire right away, but now it looks like I will. [Big Grin]

Man, you procrastinate buying Empire and you are rewarded with a personal visit from OSC. That's why we are so jealous Utah Mormons [Wink]

Last year when he was here at BYU promoting Magic Street the line was probably 2-3 hours long by the time I got into it. It snaked back and forth among the stacks. I'll probably stop by as well only at 1pm because I have class until then.

Are you already speaking derisively of Utah Mormons, Pooka? That didn't take long, did it? [Razz]

Hey, I was born out here, Mr. walked right through an OSC signing in college. Though I have to confess I let a little thing like lack of money and childcare and reliable transport keep me from the writer's workshop this summer.

So, considering the long lines, what's the best time to show up?

I hope the lines are WAY long, and stay long. [Razz] I need them to last until I'm off work. When I got here (just before 1:00) the line wrapped all the way around the fiction section in the bookstore, probably through four rows of books.

Yep, very long line. I just came back after standing in line for 2 hours! And the line was still back to about where I started. I made him sign 2 books and take a picture with me, so I did my part in keeping it nice and long for you ;-)

Just got back as well. Still probably an hour of line left [Smile]

I did forget to buy my copy of Empire beforehand and so I was left to buy a couple of other books instead.

All is well, my husband got here sooner than I expected, so he waited in line and called me when he got towards the front. [Big Grin]

Still an hour of line left at 5:30 pm Sergeant? That's ridiculous! Cool to see so many passionate fans in Provo! (Is it like this anywhere else he goes?)

By the way, I waited about an hour and a half and it went on for at least another hour or more. Poor guy's hand will be all cramped up for a week [Cry] .

Nah, he'll be okay. Don't you know, when the line looks too long for him he sends in his remote-controlled accelerated growth clone cyborg in to do the writing for him? [Wink]
