A fellow collector here picked up a copy of 11/22/63 that is supposed to be from the Sarasota signing. While the seller provided some copies of photos from the event, he did not provide a receipt.

In addition the signature is in Black ink. I wasn't at that signing but based on photos I've seen it seems like King was signing with a blue pen....Maybe the pen ran out later but I'm curious if anyone has a copy with black ink from that night? Or saw King use a black pen that night?

Yeah, we need to get to the bottom of this!!! Hate frauds! Anyhooo...I sure wish I could meet Mr. Stephen King. I already told my wife to be prepared to camp out. You know if Stephen would sign one of his older books for me if I was at a book signing for one of his new books? I've always wondered.

Usually King only signs the new books at the book signings. Every once in a while, he does sign older books, but it's unusual.

John, do you know if on the rare occasions he signs an older book, it is n addition to the new one? Or doeshe usually just sign one book only?

Going to a King signing is on my bucket list.

As far as I know, at the occasions in which he signs anything, he'll limit the number of books to one.

Hi,
to go back to the original question, my sarasota copy is also signed in black.

All,
I was able to go to the Atlanta signing and I can tell you that he signed in black ink at that signing. I encourage anyone who can go to one to do so. It was an amazing adventure for me. I had been suffering from Breast cancer so they gave me a seat close to the signing and even though you were not allowed to do personalization, he did one for me and gave me a hug!!!! it was the best moment of my life aside from from children being born.
