I have been talking about all the lines I waited on and I wanted to add the one place I never waited on a line is the one you’d least expect – the women’s restroom. Yes, all weekend long I just walked right in and found an empty stall. It was like the Twilight Zone.
Today was a sleep-in day for me. My photo op with the Geonosis Jedi was not until 1:30pm so I I didn’t get there till after 10am. My first stop was the Del Rey booth. They had already run out of the Heir to the Jedi pins and were looking for more.
In the meantime I showed one of the Del Rey people proof of my Dark Disciple pre-order and received that pin. I also asked about Pierce Brown. Like I thought, he was only there on Friday. I later saw on Facebook that Pierce responded to my question. He said he’s back to the grind to finish Morning Star.
At this point I saw they found another box of Heir to the Jedi pins but were not handing them out yet. The man who had given me the other pin and answered my question about Pierce handed me one on the down-low. That was really sweet. I think he liked that I was a fan of the Red Rising books and felt bad I missed seeing Pierce.
I then picked up a free copy of the X-Wing paperback, Mercy Kill and a sampler of their upcoming Star Wars books and the Marvel comic book.
On Sunday I played the spin and win game. I landed on the prize of my choice. I wanted either the novel Kenobi or Razor’s Edge. I went with Razors Edge.
