The tour, she has begun!
Hey, did you guys know they have a six AM now? No one ever tells me anything. This is what it looks like:
Kind of spooky.
In case you can’t tell, I’m not a morning person. (This reason, and no other, is why I became a writer.) But while this tour was being scheduled, I read all these articles about how flights that are early in the day are delayed much less often. So rather than deal with that, many early flights were locked in.
So. Much. Early.
But after a post-flight nap, Justine and I are at a hotel in Schaumburg, Illinois, about to head off toward a banquet at the Great Lakes Booksellers Association. They’re feeding the authors at a special early dinner, so that we don’t even have to eat during the banquet.
Our job is but to charm.
Okay, I’ll try to blog every day or so, just to give you guys a sense of what book tours are like from the author’s perspective. This is my first real multi-city tour, so I’m looking forward to learning all the tricks.
Also, a few copies of Extras have been leaking out into the wild. That’s cool with me, but please no spoilers on this blog yet!
I’ll be setting up a spoiler zone this weekend.
Ciao for now!
