Did you ever read that post a while back over at The Bloggess about how Wil Wheaton posed for a photo collating papers and sent it to her just because she asked?
You know how you wrote that amazing novel called At the End of Magic that your son surprised you by publishing, and how your blogging and bookstore friends are helping you promote it?
At the End of Magic and Wil Wheaton came together in my mind at the same exact moment in time, which I think can only be explained by the fact that your book and Wil Wheaton are AWESOME and not at all because I have ISSUES and my therapist sounds like Marge Simpson.
So, I thought it would be really cool to surprise you with a photo of Wil Wheaton holding At the End of Magic because if he can collate papers in a photo for The Bloggess, surely he can hold your book in a photo for me, right?
But then I thought about it some more. The Bloggess is brilliant and has a gazillion readers. I have ISSUES and nine readers. Also, Wil Wheaton and I have a history, where history equals HE IS PLAYING HARD TO GET. Consider this evidence: I looked ALL DAY and couldn’t even spot Wil Wheaton one measly time at Comic-Con. So, I may not have the pull it will take to get Wil Wheaton to pose for a photo with At the End of Magic. Although, in my favor, I am the grandmother of someone Wil Wheaton loves. True story.
@JackTheBaby I love this so much!

But still. You know that me not being popular, participating in therapy with Marge Simpson, and knowing that Wil Wheaton is avoiding me would not stop me from getting a photo of Wil Wheaton holding your book, right? Because I have skillz that The Bloggess and Wil Wheaton
could put a damper on by filing a lawsuit and/or a restraining order don’t even know about.
Here you go, Mary. Wil Wheaton holding At the End of Magic in a photo for you.
P.S. The photo of Wil Wheaton holding At the End of Magic was totally my idea, so if that strikingly handsome and wonderfully talented Wil Wheaton wants to sue anyone or file a restraining order, I hereby agree to take the rap.
Mr. Wheaton, if I have to show up in court for a lawsuit and/or restraining order, would it be possible to get a photo of you on the courthouse steps holding Mary’s book? Can I be in the photo? Also, could I get an autograph for my youngest daughter since she showed up at Comic-Con dressed as Deanna Troi hoping to see you, and she didn’t think the Wesley Crusher hoodie I offered to buy her made up for not seeing you? One more thing: Here’s another photo of @JackTheBaby dressed like Wesley Crusher because I think
this photo will make you think twice about suing the grandmother of this darling child since Mary got an awesome photo of you, you should get an awesome photo too.
