“It is the greatest shot of adrenaline to be doing what you have wanted to do so badly. You almost feel like you could fly without the plane.” -Charles Lindbergh
So this is what's happening. In a little more than twenty-four hours, I'm
leaving on my own funky book tour--a combination of readings at
some truly fantastic and unique book stores, and Liars' Parties with my amazing blog friends. (Expect lots of pictures.)
What's more I'll be visiting incredible cities that I've longed to see all my life, but never have.
I'll be looking at a different ocean and contemplating the world from an entirely different perspective. I have no doubt my soul will be rocked like a boat.
I'll also be visiting a city on a lake that's so impressive, it looks like an ocean. For the first time in my life, I'll be drinking my St. Paddy's day pint in a pub that's far from New England.
I'll be meeting some of you, who I've come to know so well here in the sphere.
Even better, Ted is going with me.
If any of you are near these areas and have a chance to come and see me, I would be thrilled to see you in person.
The where and when:
Seattle Mystery Bookshop
Corte Madeira, CA
(Drop by signing, but if you're in the area...)
M is for Mystery
San Mateo, California
Morgan Hill, CA
The Book Cellar
On the 16h I fly to Chicago, and then home on the 18th. Till then, it will probably be pretty quiet around here.
Now maybe I better start thinking about packing...
