Brienne Sings the Blues

Brienne Sings the Blues
Dan Applegate writes, "I wanted to send this to you after seeing all of the pictures fans sent of people, pets, art, etc.- it's really remarkable how we've embraced your books, and the characters in them. I'm a guitarist (as well as a collector, I guess) and I have this tendency (after hearing that BB King named his guitar "Lucille") of naming all of my guitars.......more than a few are named after fictional characters.

I got my first resonator guitar, a chrome-plated brass body beauty that weighs nearly ten pounds. Wow! I had a little trouble naming this one, even after playing her for a couple months, until I re-read "A Game of Thrones" (one of my favorite pastimes, to re-read the series until the new one comes out!) and thought of the perfect name - Brienne.

So, here she is. I thought you might appreciate that it wasn't just the "Beautiful" characters that get immortalized by your fans. And anyway, she's beautiful- kind of like I imagine her in your books. A different kind of beauty, clad in plate mail, but beautiful nonetheless. And she's built for the blues- a really telling reflection of her namesake."

Thanks, Dan. I hope Brienne sings some sweet songs for you for many a year to come.
