Meet the Author

Join us at the largest event of its kind in the country! Enjoy two days of exhibitors, presentations, and hands on classes! AA will have a booth at the show, bring in your books and he will sign them.

The show in Denver was a huge success. It was a lot of fun, and the entire show was really fun and exciting. There were a ton of folks there. There will be more to see at the Mesquite Expo... Don't miss it.

AA & Penguin will be giving away some books as well if you need a copy.

What I don't get is, why a convention hall? Doesn't it defeat the purpose of the event? Do it outside, rain, shine, hail. Let some deer and squirrels loose. Show the expo goers how to deal with a snakebite on a real victim. Set a broken arm on a live volunteer...

Most importantly, why always out west? Why not here on the east coast? North Carolina or Florida would be great places to hold something like that and we could pick oranges afterwards.

It's not EOTAWKI Yet, this show was so huge it would be difficult to have outside. I can't speak for Ron the organizer, but if you can't legally conceal carry, there won't be a show at that location or building.

There is one listed in Richmond Virginia, isn't that "east" of here.

I'm sure they will be keenly interested in everyone's' comments.

I thought that was Richmond, TX.

My mistake, it is VA. And right about the time for the 6 month condiment test :P

I went I saw AA and he autographed some of his books. I asked him how he liked his new job and he just smiled. I have a copy of his going home book and he gave me one of the new ones to go with it. I can remember how all of us tried to get him to publish back then and I am so very glad that he finally gave in!! Thank you for the kind conversation at the show and I will be looking forward to your new book. Thanks for the autograph.

Too right teedee, I read a lot, so much that IS published never should have seen the light of day. As a result, some of us notice a marketable story when we see one, even if it does need filtered through editors that have more than a 5th grade spelling level. ;)

I think the show was a great success. I owe Un a enormous thank you. He works his but off to help, hell, run the booth. Penguin really owes him as he picked up the slack when Phil bailed to go to Tulsa. Thanks brother, it really wouldn't be the same without you. PF and Nich dropped by, PF thinks he's a funny guy, got a laugh out of me though! Rock was there, great to see you again buddy. Tee, thanks for coming by as well as anyone else I'm missing. It really is great to get to meet you guys when I'm out running around.

We met some great LEO's from College Station, these guys are like grapes and come in bunches but are exactly the kind of guys we need on our side, Gary if you see this I had a great time with you and the crew.

AD, you would have been proud of AA during the Expo. While we were there watching his fan club go by the lights went out in the building. After a minute of darkness, AA reached into his get back home bag and whipped out this little light and kept on signing books and BSing with the people. True prepared camper.

Rock, Glen mentioned that on his radio show today. He said that the gal from Mercury One called him and told him that everyone whipped out their flashlights and it was business as usual. At first I thought he was going to say that he got AA's books and was going to interview him. Maybe next time.

He he, I'll post up some pics later. It was funny when the lights went out, several people whipped out flashlights, I had a small LED lantern in a pack under the table. I hope the girl from Mercury One gave him the books, that would be cool.
