Northern Alberta bound...

Thanks to everyone who came out to meet me in Chicago, including all the employees from DDB Advertising as well as Diana and Sue, who arrived hours early to patiently wait in the front row... It was so great meeting you guys! And Borders Books on State Street? Your store rocks. I know I say this every year, but I love Chicago.

That said, I did slam my finger in a car door (it's black from the knuckle down, so I'm off for an x-ray this afternoon), I've got an ear infection, and I've almost completely lost my voice...

Still, this won't stop me from making it to my readings in St. Albert (tomorrow night, 7:30 pm, St. Albert Chapters) or Athabasca (Friday, 7:00 pm, Seniors Center). I may need a shot of something to make it through each reading (preferably espresso through an IV) but I'll be there all the same, and I promise we'll have fun.

I hope you can make it out!

I enjoyed your reading Monday, Holly. Thanks for autographing my Tin Box and Penny Tree. I'm 3/4 of the way done The Silver Compass already. What a lovely book! So far I think it's my favorite of the three.

Ugh! Your poor finger!!!!
The big question is this though: Will it stop you from signing books?

Good to see you're being
tuff about it.
I hate wimpy women *LOL*

Ack! Poor you!!!

Neither ear nor throat nor fickle finger will prevent an author from their signing duties. They teach you that in author school...

I hope you feel better! And you're right...Chicago does rock :)

Can you sign with the other hand, or will all your books just be marked "X" where your name would normally be?

I can picture your finger, and feel the slam of the door. Makes me cringe...
Hope you're doing better. And why not have your kids do the signings for you? heh heh
