FORGE Book Tour details!

The short version: Five weeks. Texas. AZ. MO. non-NYC New York.   New England. Mid-Atlantic (incl NYC). Texas, Round 2. West Coast. Mid-West and down the mighty Mississippi. Miami so I can drink Cuban coffee, which I will really need by the end of November. Final event at the bookstore closest to my house.

In some areas I will only be speaking in schools. Why? “Logistical requirements” was the answer I received from the Powers of the Booktour. (You thought authors had any control over these things? Ha!)

In the unlikely event that I am not coming to your region (hello Alaska and Hawaii and North Dakota), you can still get a signed copy of my book through the good graces of my local independent bookstore, river’s end bookstore in Oswego, NY. When you call them to order the book, be sure to give the name of the person for whom you want me to sign it.
