Authors are expected to sign after each panel. I imagine this is about a half hour or so. Although my schedule is tight, if no one is there I'm likely to hustle off to my next event.


Meanwhile spies have reported in on seeing Prudence popping up in special recommendation lists. Hooray! Thank you so much if you have already pre-ordered, its part of how I get to be on these lists, your enthusiasm.
