Not a pet peeve.
Just met Kim Harrison Thursday for the last signing of her Hollows series. It was a blast, and she was so polite & fun! I had e-mailed her earlier this year asking if she could donate a few books to my teen program at my library, and she did (signed too!) that the teens just loved. She not only remembered, but asked how the teens liked the books!
I could not say enough about how the signing went down, and how wonderful she was.
I met her at a book signing a few years back and she was terrific, and so was her husband. (We ended up chatting with him for a few minutes.) Very down-to-earth regular folks.
