just wanted to express my thanks and gratitude after meeting you yesterday, neal you certainly don't disappoint in person, and it was awesome to have a chat, pick your brains a little, and take some photos of you and the promo stand they made up for you in the shop. i really hope the movie deal comes off - that would be fantastic for you (and for us too if it got made), and now at least i know there'll be at least 3 more books to keep me entertained after the line war, and after listening to some of your ideas (which i won't spoil for everyone here) i can't wait to see them fleshed out! but of course you'll still have to think of an idea for the third in the meantime......! i was blown away yesterday, not just a great author but really great guy, too - thanks for everything! (and the 'gaius' message was hilarious! ). p.s. i can pm you the photos, or post them here if you don't mind them being shared with everyone.
