Neil Gaiman Interview and Gravestone Giveaway


Just wanted to let you know that my interview with Neil Gaiman is now posted here. Find out what inspired him to write The Graveyard Book, whether it was based on any graveyard in particular, will there be a more written about Nobody Owens, which of the graveyard skills he'd like himself, who are his favorite authors--things like that. He was charming, agreed to an interview while signing books, and I'd just like to say thank you publicly.

So--what did you think of the set for his event? Wasn't it fantastic? You know, all those gravestones were taken from the book. AND he signed a few at the end of the evening. Yes, you guessed it, I have one to give away. Really. So who wants it? Write and let me know and I'll pull names out of a hat. It's that easy!

I'd like to be entered for the gravestone, please.

Is there a real way to write to you? Cause there seem to be a bunch of comments that don't give you any contact info. Oh well.

I was there too and it was brilliant! One of the best Neil events I've been to, even if the sound was a little wonky sometimes.

Please enter me for the drawing too:

I absolutely adore Neil Gaiman. I was lucky enough to meet him on his Anansi Boys tour in Dallas. I nearly fainted. Total Beatles Mania moment. I was almost able to see him in Seattle recently on the Grave Yard Book tour, but my plain had to leave a bit too early. :(
I would love to be entered in the contest!

Hi there - what a great idea...when I read it I decided to email you, and see if you would consider donating it to an auction being held on Ebay in December for Variety Children's Charity of Northern California. We are in San Francisco, and I am a board member, and would love to be able to offer this on our auction to raise money for the charity. We have been around since 1927, in SF since 1947 = totally legit. I'm a huge Gaiman fan, and if you can donate it to us, I'll pair it with a signed Graveyard Game from Gaiman, and together we can really raise some money for kids! We are at www.varietync.org, and I'm at sfinsfevents at gmail.com.

I hope you pick us! :) I heard of this via Sharon Levin's newsletter emails.
