Kim Harrison Signing Part 2 – Autumn Leaves saved the day! (Pics, video, and sound bites)

Though I got to meet Kim on Friday, one of our fellow members, Autumn Leaves, met Kim yesterday! If any one else will be attending a signing and would like for me to make a post about it I’ll be more than happy to do it.

As for Autumn’s signing. This was held in Atlanta.  Thankfully they held the Q&A session this time.  She was able to record a couple of sound bites and I have uploaded them here. She was able to address the questions about elves being able to feel cold (they can after a while).  A few facts not on the recording (quoted from Autumn):

  • When she was signing my book, I asked her the question about Trent being able to read Rachel’s mind – she said it is not so much that he can read her mind, it’s just that he knows her so well.
  • And, I can’t remember if this is on the recording or not but someone asked if demons are redeemable, and she said yes – because they have the ability to love. They wouldn’t have lasted this long if they didn’t. They have the ability to love, it is just deep down within them.
  • Someone asked Kim about why she didn’t use her real name Dawn Cook, and she said that she wanted a pen-name and her publisher suggested “Harrison” as her books would be placed next to Laurel K. Hamilton (best selling author at the time) in the bookstores. (VampireNovelFan note: this strategy worked both ways because I started out reading Harrison and then noticed Hamilton which is how I got into the Anita Blake series)

And what report would be complete without video? Kim read an excerpt from the book (it’s part of the elevator scene with Trent and Rachel):

Thanks again Autumn for all of these goodies!



Kim uploaded a section with additional questions (which includes Autumn asking our question about Trent being able to read Rachel’s mind; turns out he can just read her well now):

One of our followers, Dana, also attended this signing and uploaded her version of the reading (it’s got the whole thing up close)

and here are her pics! Thanks for sharing, Dana! This is fab!

  1. Hey Erica! It was really great getting to meet you and Virginia. Hopefully, next time(ever the optimist) Kim comes by for a signing, I get to spend more time talking to you guys. It was an exciting time being surrounded by Hollows fans. I am halfway through the book so far and loving it. Unfortunately, that means I am back to waiting for the next Hollows book.
    I’ll have to go through some of your suggestions for new reads!!

  2. Thanks for the videos… That was great. I am seeing her in Seattle on March 7th for the first time and I can’t wait. Watching the videos just makes me that much more excited. She seems really nice and she is always so great on her Drama Box. I feel like I already know her through our emails and posts.

    1. I know what you mean about feeling like you know her already. I hope you enjoy your signing! I’d love to see pics and vids if you take some! And if you’d like me to put your report on here, that’s no problem either.

  3. Thanks so much for posting this! What fun!! I’m so bummed I can’t make it to one of her signings. Her tour doesn’t swing close enough to my neck fo the woods. So enjoyed the pics and videos!!! Awesome post!!
