I hit the
tarmac on the twenty-seventh, but before that was a local signing at
NC Books A Million
And this shot says it all.
(grin) My first stop was at Books-A-Million in Concord Mills
Mall, and my local readers helped me kick it off with a bang!
There was actually one person who had read an ARC, and she didn't
give away any spoilers.
San Diego, CA -- Mysterious Galaxy
Me and my rodies! The San
Diego crew really outdid themselves this year, and I had tons of tour
help! (grin) Thanks guys! Mysterious Galaxy rocks!
Books Inc: San Francisco, CA
Me and my roadies in Books Inc in San
Francisco! Lots of familiar faces, and a few new ones! I
had a great time, and I hope Ms. S sends me back again!
Borderlands, San Francisco, CA
I am so sorry, but I forgot to take a
"family portrait," and no one reminded me! I feel like such a
dufus. So instead, here's a shot of the crowd, which is cool
in it's own right, but not what I had intended.. (sigh)
Place Books: Seattle, WA
Me and my Third Place Books roadies!
We had a fire alarm at the end of the Q&A,
which made things interesting, but everyone came back in, and we
finished up with the signings.
University Bookstore: Seattle, WA
Me and my University Bookstore roadies!
We're doing the bunny-eared, kiss-kiss.
I remember most of these people from last year, so it was very cool.
Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing: Portland, OR
Powell's was fantastic! I had
a full house, and lots of roadies, two of them there only in spirit.
(shout out to Ms. G!) The questions were great, and I want to thank
all the folks at the end of the line who waited so patiently. You
Bookpeople: Austin, TX
Book People in Austin was my
last stop of the tour, and I tell you, these people helped me end it
right! We had lots of roadies, and we gave away a few shirt.
And they even laughed at my jokes! (grin)
