The most recent and most coveted in my collection. Hugh Howey was nice enough to take my multiple book order personally via email vs. online form. I also had the prequel, The First Shift signed as well.
J.L. Bryan hosted a blog tour for his book The Haunted Ebook last year and I was the lucky recipient of a signed copy! A year later and we're now good writing buds.
Back when I was finishing up grad school, I took a week vacation in order to take Gregg McCrary's week long course. The required text was one he co-wrote with Katherine Ramsland. Years later, I found myself in Gettysburg one Halloween where Ramsland was doing a book signing for one of her ghost books. Needless to say, she was surprised to find me there with The Unknown Darkness, ready for her to sign.
Another favorite of mine, Portrait was written by two of my favorite college professors. For some reason, I never got it signed by Dr. Knopp. Anytime I feel homesick, I read this collection of stories.
