TM, who never asks for signatures these days, unless the author/editor asks if I'd like one first.

********* I think it's a bit much to ask a writer to leave his home and family and travel around to promote a book, anyway. It seems like the writer has done enough work by just writing the book. It should stand or fall on it's own merit. Of course, that is ideal and the world isn't.

In spite of all this, if they're gonna show up at a bookstore promoting their book, I don't think it's too much to ask a writer to sign it.
