|Marvelous stacks of books|
It'll be my second tour in less than a year (the first, last fall, was for A Falling Star), and I'd be lying if I said that so much travel isn't exhausting and emotionally hard, especially since I can't take my kids and husband with me (*shakes fist at school and work*).
BUT, tour is also exhilarating, and I know I'll meet wonderful people and make new friends, so I'm grateful to the folks at Europa Editions for setting up all of these events.
So, here's a list of scheduled events. Please come say hi if you're in the area, and definitely share with friends and family:
Tuesday, April 7--RELEASE DAY, AKA BOOK BIRTHDAY, AKA, I'll be teaching my classes and sitting in on a graduate student defense, then maybe going to Books-a-Million to find my book in the wild.
