Pics and fan accounts are starting to come in from the Book Passages signing. Smile 



The talented Chris Colfer - I gave him a photo of a new bar that opened in my neighborhood in SF called “The Lightning Tavern” and told him it was a theme bar for Stuck By Lightning. He totally laughed and he and Alla both asked me where it is.

CHRIS COLFER BOOK SIGNING EXPERIENCE
Okay so I figured I’d write out how the book signing went today, in care I ever (god forbid) forget what happened.
MIGHT I JUST SAY I AM COMPLETELY IN AWE OF CHRIS COLFER’S PERFECTION. COLFER FANS BE WARNED HE IS BETTER LOOKING IN PERSON AND NOT AS SHORT AS TV MAKES HIM SEEM AND HIS VOICE SOUNDS EXACTLY THE SAME AND BE PREPARED FOR YOUR OVARIES TO EXPLODE.
Anywho I drove to the signing with my mom in Corte Madera, it was about an hour or so drive from where I live. I was surprised by how short the line was, for the entire signing to take place it only took about 50 minutes!
The line started moving at around 6:30 and as I started getting closer I felt like I was going to vomit.
As I entered the signing room a woman took my ticket and told me chris would only sign my copy of tlos2, and not to ask him to sign my struck by lightning copy I brought from home (I was so disappointed). 
As I approached the table my entire mind went blank. LITERALLY THE HOURS OF REHEARSING WHAT I WOULD SAY ALL WENT TO WASTE ALL I COULD DO WAS STAND THERE. 
He signed tlos2 and I was just standing there with that open mouthed gape-face look, so in awe. Then he gestured to my copy of struck by lightning and said “Oh! I see you have my other book!” and I said “Yeah! Would you.. mind signing it for me please?”
I GOT SO MANY DIRTY LOOKS FROM THE BOOKSTORE LADIES, BUT WAS SO HAPPY WHEN HE SIMPLY SAID “Of course!” and signed both books!
Then I asked for a handshake, and got one, and right before I left the table I picked up my books and said:
"IF YOU AREN’T MARRIED BY THE TIME YOU TURN 60, FIND ME"
(And yes, I am aware of his sexuality, but I couldn’t resist, he’s the definition of perfection!)
and him and the people working the signing laughed and he was like “Hahah ooohhhkay!” 
I died a little bit.
No, scratch that, I’m dead.
Well I might as well be, KILL ME NOW AND I’D BE TOTALLY OKAY WITH THAT BECAUSE I HAVE MET CHRIS COLFER. 
He is such a genuine person, and really makes an effort to smile and be nice and talk to all of his fans, he is just such an admirable person.

o I went to the Corte Madera signing, and I brought my beloved boyfriend pillow to show Chris. So when I went up and showed him the bf pillow, he said “I thought I’d never see that thing again” and laughed. It was AMAZING. Best day of my life.

Chris knows those legs do wonders in the fandom. Wink

Has his dad ever been to the events? I know his mom and Hannah did last year but his dad? I have this image of him being a traditional blue collared worker who just doesn't get why fans squeal over a book and his son but endures it because, hey it's his son and he still admires that he has been a success. Smile I guess many dads would be like that.

^I think I remember seeing a picture of him (and Chris, his mom and Hannah?) in a backroom of a bookstore last year, but I'm not sure.


I love these book tours! neutre 
So many new pictures and fan encounters that get posted, and tweets and instagrams from Chris.
How nice of Alison to have come to Chris' signing yesterday. And that picture with Hannah is so sweet. Chris' mom has a lot to be proud of indeed. 

Did I say that I love these book tours? wub


-ETA- Apparently Alison was not at the book signing, but a fan tweeted her while in line.
