Little Type et Moi

As I've mentioned, I've got this sweet set-up with Pat and Erika of Little Type: they sell autographed copies of King Dork. They're the only people doing this over the internets, and lots of people are ordering them (and thanks!)

Anyway, this arrangement means that every week or so we get together to have a few drinks and sign books. Usually it's at a bar somewhere, but last week we ended up creating our own little piece of tranquility, parking in a relatively quiet Oakland residential area, setting up lawn chairs on the street, and drinking bagged Heinekins through straws. Signing books, talking of this, that, and the other. It was twilight. All was quiet.

It was a really nice moment, and I wanted to take a photo of it, but no one had a camera. Fortunately, Pat was able to draw a picture:

That's pretty much what it was like, and it was great while it lasted. As you can see, though, there were a few people with question marks over their heads scoping us out. Things took a sinister turn. We got nervous, because you can't be too careful. So I signed the last book and we got out of there just in time.

So I repeat: if you want an autographed King Dork, Little Type is where to go to get one.

(Sam Hellerman T-shirts are coming soon, by the way.)
