105 Junkies in Washington DCWe closed out the Sigler Stank II book tour in style with the Washington, D.C. installment. Over 105 Junkies came out and partied (it's "over" 105 because one woman was pregnant, which counts as a half-Junkie.)

Thanks to all of you who came out for the eleven city swing. I had an amazing time meetin' & greetin' and drinkin' with all of you. I got many emails and Tweets from people who couldn't quite make it out, and those were appreciated as well -- will catch you next time around.

Looking at December 2009 for the next installment, and I hope to kick it up to fifteen cities or possibly even more. I am now heading home to go the hell to sleep. More stories coming soon.

Love Watching You & Your Career Blossom :)

 Hey Scott:

 

I am thrilled at the ever-increasing level of turnout for you. I really hope this has an effect on keeping you as a full-time writer longer. As always, if there is something else I can do personally to inspire the powers that be to fork over more money, let me know. Otherwise, I'll restrain my temptation to track down your agent, or just write to Crown directly. Unless you give me the word. I'm not writing to either of those people.

 

We're still praying for the total recovery of the EQ(tm). After several days of rest, please let us know how your sweet wife is doing. I enjoyed meeting her in SF.

methinks crown should be very happy with the turn out


at all your stops
Maybe they'll see the wisdom in sponsering more of them next time, not just the 5 they did this yr, and possibly go international (well, canada is a foreign country)

He should be given a private jet......

Then he could just flit from place to place, state to state, and any place he wants.... when ever a new book comes out......Did I just say flit?

Crown didn't pay for all 8 cities! OMG our FDO is so dedicated!

 Scott: You loveable goofball. You mean that the costs for 3 of the cities came out of your own pocket. SHIT!!! I love your dedication, but it don't seem quite fair. I know you life in SF, but the other 2 had plane fares and hotel attached. I hope Crown picked up the whole tab, or maybe they will do so now after you brought in 105.5 Junkies!

If I remember right

Can I get a Hell Yeah!

Thanks ya bald headed bastard! I had an awesome time hanging with the FDO. Not to mention he attracted some other hanger ons like... Phil "Mutha Fucking" Rossi, Mur "Hot Momma" Lafferty, and Tee "The Pod Master" Morris (just to name a few). I drove all the way from Aberdeen MD to make the DC appearance but it was well worth it. And I went to the bar and hung till the end no less (got home at 2:30 A.M.). AND, got up for work at 6 AM. Fuckin A right, cause that's how I roll!

Thanks Scott, you da man. Well worth a night without sleep. When your tanks crush my wothless flesh under their treads I will finnaly get some fucking rest...

Beyond awesome!

The DC signing was an incredible site to see....standing room only!

The line of Junkies waiting for signatures snaked aroud the upstairs of this 2 floor Borders Books & Music store and the FDO stayed and signed everyone's goodies and closed the store.  Got a chance to meet some awesome people and have a pint of beer named  "raison d'être" (or reason for existence) at the Doghead Fish Brewery.

Good times! Thanks again FDO!!

Get Some Rest...

Get some rest and then get you ASS over to this side of the pond.  If you are going to take over the world you must start in the "Old World".  I'm pretty sure we junkies can put you and the Queen up every night somewhere throughout Europe. 

 (And hell I can't even get a response about when your book is actually coming out in the UK as your publisher won't answer and keeps telling the book companies something different all the time! So don't even think of telling me to tell you UK publisher to get you over here...)

Oh yeah...Here we do real pub crawls!

Congrats though on the major turn-outs.

Waterstones, UK

Keep fobbing me off. They cannot seem to explain the delay when it should have been available on the 8th Jan.

Although I ordered two hardcopies of Contagious from US for the FDO push for NYTBS list I want to buy UK editions for the FDO to get a presence here in the UK and to use it as a staging post for the conquest of Europe. 

PS. that's a MAJOR junkie turnout  well done DC!

Amazon

I sympathise with you Flashman, I preordered on Amazon ages ago and my copy seems to be in limbo. No one will tell me whats going on. I started to cry. Then I realised it's amazons fault. Then I realised it's the worlds fault and that someone in the UK distribution chain must be made to pay. Pay hard. I am thinking of a limb for each day the book fails to turn up.

FDO - The UK needs sanction to kick some ass - please advise.

You so rock Gmork! Attention to Orders!

For those who don't know... Gmork flew her own damn self down to Houston and attended the signing there, only to fly back and attend the signing in DC the next week. 

 

Her dedication and effors reflect great credit upon herself and the overwhelming powers of the FDO.  

I really should have gone out there for that stop.  I really wanted too, but flights back would have been impossible.  It makes me sad.

Houston will do better next time

I am spreading the crack as far as I can, lining them up with podcast hypos.  I shall personally bring more to bow before the FDO next time.  Thanks for coming to see us and the stories at the table.  Thanks for not killing us at the table.

Cheers.

Had a blast

I am just trying to get the pictures up for both DC and NYC. Sad to see my home town of NY didn't make the top but hey DC did and I was there for it! :)

I highly recommend to anyone going to more then one signing, it was one of the funnest times ever. I drove from Canada, to NY to DC, dedication? or just fate trying to give me more Sigler? you decide :)

I loved hanging with everyone that came, I can't remember all your names but I had a great time, well met. Shame we scared that one guy away in DC though LOL
