Rob and I are moving to Chicago in April and we’re driving. I joked about doing a whistle-stop tour as part of the move and then we realized that it might actually be a good idea.
Crazy? Yes. But a way to visit places I wouldn’t get to otherwise. Because we are moving we’re hesitant to set up any actual readings. I mean… you know what happens when I travel. Instead of trying to schedule something tight, we’re doing a soft schedule of signings.
What does that mean? Below, I have our route and the approximate date of each city we plan to spend the night in. If you live along this route and have a bookstore within 5 miles of the interstate, I will stop in to sign and personalize a book for you.
How does this work?
- Contact the closest bookstore on the route to pre-order a book and request that I stop in. (We will post the stores that I will be visiting, so check the list.)
- Ask the stores to contact my publicist at Tor, Alexis Nixon, ([email protected]) a to confirm that they have the book in stock.
- I will give the stores a date of arrival and an approximate time.
- Two hours before arriving, I call to confirm with the store and tweet that I will be there. If you want to come by to meet me, I’ll be happy to say hello.
- We fly like the wind to the next city.
