Last night was the third day, and fourth stop, in THE FIRST RULE book tour by author Robert Crais. Luckily, blogger Pop Culture Nerd clued me in to the launch party here at the Book Soup bookstore. It certainly was more than just a regular book event. The place was packed, food and drink were all about, and many long-time friends of the author, including PCN and fellow author Gregg Hurwitz, were there. And, great time was had by all of those who attended (me, included). Below are some of the photos taken (if you wish to see the whole set, please go to this Flickr photostream).
Needless to say, Gregg Hurwitz, PCN, Carol the Webmaster, and Deb are some of the nicest, and most fun people I've come to meet at this or any such event. I still have an ache on my side due to the laughter cramp I developed because of a particular impromptu incident that came about late into the proceedings (however... I can say no more about it).
As usual, author Robert Crais was "on"; his quick wit and entertaining stories had everyone laughing and enthralled throughout the evening. The man is gracious and very generous to his fans (how else can you explain his good nature when some folk do a guerrilla photo drive-by's like the one above). By the way, for our friends in the state of Ohio, RC has asked that if you're brave enough to admit you know me, he'd like you to mention this to him when he comes to Dayton on the 24th of this month [I can't promise he won't haze you for this, though ;-)]. I don't know what is it about the guy, but it seems these days his fans are getting younger and younger.
