Thanks for all the kind words. I hope you'll like the forthcoming books as much as you did the first two.
As for signings in California... on the first two volumes, Bantam scheduled signings in San Diego (Mysterious Galaxy), Los Angeles (Dangerous Visions), and the Bay Area (Kepler's in Menlo Park and Dark Carnival in Berkley). I imagine I will be returning to some of the same places once again when A STORM OF SWORDS comes out.
The Westeros network consists of several different sites, including a forum and a wiki, for all your A Song of Ice and Fire needs.
