I don’t know if this will actually fly with my publicist, but I have an idea…we are in the middle of planning my book tour starting in June and running ‘til whenever. If you have a suggestion or a request—as to a location, post it here and I’ll forward to my publicist. At this point, anything’s game. We have lots of requests from bookstores around the country, but I was wondering what you all thought.
Disclaimer: If I don’t get to your city, don’t blame me. My publicist makes all destination decisions. Don’t shoot the messenger. I know I just threw my publicist under the bus but she’s really cool and she’d like to know what you think, too. So, any requests please? (This will be embarrassing if no one responds.)
Night before last, we held a release party in Jacksonville for “Where the River Ends.” We think we had somewhere north of 400 people and I signed around 350 books. By the end of the night, I’d ask my hand to write something and it would laugh at me. The result looked like either some ancient script or the doodling of a two year old. Here are some photos (on Flickr) from the release party. Notice the canoes. They’re handmade. I think they’re incredible. I’ve never seen anything like them.
To all the folks that came and stood in line, my thanks. Hope you enjoy the book.
