I am so excited! On Monday, August 8th, at 8 p.m. EST (6:00 p.m. for those of you who live in MST like I do), I’ll be announcing my tour dates/locations on twitter and facebook. My publisher came up with the very fun idea to announce one date/location every ten minutes for that hour, so we’ll be letting you know one new place every ten minutes. And then, when it’s all over, I’ll post the full tour info on the Events page here on the site.
WOO HOO! I’m so excited about this tour!! I can’t wait to see (hopefully!) many of you!
In the past twelve months, I’ve traveled to Frankfurt, Germany, Los Angeles, Oakland, Chicago, Nashville, Philadelphia, Boston, Orlando, New York City, Minneapolis, Denver, Raleigh, Oxford (Mississippi), Austin, New York again, and maybe someplace I’ve forgotten. I’ve also traveled quite a bit in state (Cedar City, Logan, Tooele) in addition to local events in Provo, Orem, and Salt Lake City. And I’ll be traveling to Portland and Rhode Island and the six cities on this tour and likely some more places in addition to that!
So please, please don’t be mad at me if I’m not coming to your city. There are three reasons for this:
1. My publisher (of course!) gets to decide where I go, and they send me to cities based on interest/sales, etc.
2. I have little kids at home. My parents are saints and come into town (they live three hours away and both have jobs of their own) to take care of my kids while my husband is at work and I’m on tour. I need to be respectful of their schedules/lives, and also of my own children, who do need to have their mom at home most of the time.
3. I also have to be able to have time to write more books.
But, signed copies are always available for purchase at The King’s English (our beautiful and wonderful indie bookstore) and if you order them before the November 1 launch event, I will be able to sign them.
So, I promise, I’m doing the best I can to get as many places as possible!
See you on Monday!!
