FDO is the most gracious to his fans of anyone I've delt with.
You are in for a treat as a Junkie. Scott says that time is the one thing we give we can never get back. He really, really does feel his fans are the reason for all of his success. He will always respond to you. He is so damn cool to me personally - I can't wait to get out there and throw down some bucks to help his numbers.
If you can get to one of his signings, DO IT! And DEFINITELY hang out for the pub crawl afterwards. I watched this master "bullshit artist" (you know when he lays out all that jive to us on pod casts)? I watched this man get around to EVERY SINGLE person who came to the pub crawl in SF and really give them 5 minutes or more of his time!
Let's do some math: 11 cities x 40 people/pubcrawl x 5 minutes each = 36.6 hours of really paying attention to people.
If you think that kind of time is easy - even if you LIKE people try doing it on top of flying 10,000+ miles, doing book readings/signings, dealing with a recovering wife and actually being able to relax enough to sleep when you drop into that hotel bed each night. He is truly amazing.
