I'll get something up Real Soon Now TM.  Patty's publicist is still working out a signing schedule for Fair Game, which she's asked us not to post until it's finalized later this week.  As soon as we get that, I'll get the schedule for the year up.   It will probably be Thursday or Friday.  LOL

I'll throw in my two cents worth here, reminding folks of the post you put up in a previous "why isn't Patty at (Convention X) or can we get her to (Convention Y)?" thread.

If it's long enough to make the expense of her travel & accommodations worth the convention budget, have them contact Ace or Patty's agent about the possibility.

I've found a few of the Fair Game book signings online and added them to the schedule:

Washington
Indiana
Pennsylvania
Kansas

A nice mix there! I'll add more as I find them. :) I'm sure the official tour will be up soon as well.

Oh my goodness! Patty is going to be in Indiana!! Yay! This signing will be much closer and convenient than the trip to Chicago for River Marked was...  :P Long drive or no, it was still sooo worth it.  :D

Can't wait to see Patty again!

I thought you were scheduled to come to Portland, OR again. I remember seeing us as well as Portland, ME. Canceled? It was on Powell's calendar months back. I'm so sad, I loved Patricia coming the past 2 years.

That does seem to be an odd omission, Portland is not too far from home, and has a lot of dedicated readers.  Sadly, I've double checked the schedule, and it looks like she's not heading to Powell's this time.   :-'    The tour is paid for by Patty's publisher, and in addition to the signings they usually have everything from buyer's meetings to marketing stuff scheduled.  She's actually far busier than the public tour schedule shows, and her publisher probably has other reasons for choosing where to send her.  I'm sorry she won't make Portland -- we always stop by Powell's when we go through the town (mostly so Patty can stock up on used books!).

Thanks again for your support, and I'm sorry I don't have better news.

Can you believe I've never attended a book signing? I've done book signings at cons, but this is different.

This will be my first ever going to one seeking out a favorite author...and it's not near my home. LOL.

It just so happens the closest book signing is during one of my business trips in Cambridge, MA.

So I'll be going to this one and being fan girl and I've no idea if we're allowed to take pictures or anything...

So with every light, there is a dark and every happiness, there is a sadness. It is the contrast that makes every moment something experienced so vividly and so deeply.

Of course you're allowed to take photos!  Signings are supposed to be fun, for both parties.   The only thing that bugs me (and I understand why they do it) is that at bigger signings the bookstore often requests that you only get two or three books signed at a time, so that the line doesn't bog down.  That means some people may have to go through the line twice if they have several books.  Of course, without that rule, you have the problem of neighboring bookstore owners bringing in fifty or a hundred copies in boxes . . . which DOES slow down the line.   :(

So, bring a camera, and Patty will be happy to give you her trademark cheesy smile!   :D

Sorry to hear about Patty's medical problems, great to hear it's taken care of with laparoscopically, for minimal damage.
Best of luck at the con.

Is there any news concerning the book signings in the Czech Republic that were scheduled for later this month?
I would love to come to one of the signings if they are being held and if not I can stop worrying about missing them by accident ^^

We'll try to find out for you, evening-green! Nothing has been posted on the main page yet but I've contacted Patty's assistant Ann so hopefully she'll get back with some dates and places for you if Mike doesn't pop in before then. :)

I've also found the Czech publishers site which lists the appearances. I can understand a bit of it but you may better be able to translate the dates and places there, I don't want to attempt to translate it and miss out something by not fully understanding it:

Wow thank you Elle!  Sadly I can't translate any of the text myself, but I can probably make some sense of it with an online translator, so thank you for the link to the site! One of my best friends and I were considering taking the train from Vienna to get there since it's not that far away and we could do some sightseeing too.

EDIT: Okay from what I understand the signings in Prague are on the 18th and 19th. On the 18th at a bookstore and on the 19th at the book fair Book World Prague 2012 - http://www.bookworld.cz/en/menu/general-info/
Still have to find out more about the bookstore and some details concerning the book fair like entrance fees for visitors.
