George R. R. Martin posted on his Not A Blog his tentative plans to visit the set of the Game of Thrones pilot. While on that side of the pond, he will be doing two book signings, one in Belfast, another in Dublin. Martin mentions there is a possibility that Benioff, Weiss and maybe a cast member or two may show up at the signing in Belfast.
Arrangements are still being worked out, but I have some tentative dates and times for my appearances in Ireland in November.
On Tuesday, November 3, I will be speaking and signing at Eason’s Bookstore in Belfast. The event begins at 1:00 pm. Or 1300 for you European types.
On Thursday, November 5, I will be at Eason’s on O’Connell Street in Dublin. This event begins at 5:00 pm, or 1700.
More details when I have ’em.
There’s a chance that David and/or Dan will drop by for the Belfast signing, and possibly some of the cast as well, but that’s not certain. May depend on how the shoot is going, what’s scheduled for that day, what’s happening down at the Paint Hall, etc. If I get any news on that front, I’ll be sure to pass it on.
These will be the first booksignings I’ve ever done in Ireland, so I don’t know what sort of crowd to expect… but I’m looking forward to meeting some of my Irish readers. Pass the word.
Winter Is Coming: Excited to hear about George’s visit to Ireland. Looking forward to getting some reports on the signing in Belfast from our Belfast area readers. Hopefully the producers and cast will show up! Would love to hear directly from them on how the pilot shoot is going. Although I’m sure George will be willing to share some of his thoughts as well, if none of them can make it.
