OK, everybody. Deep breaths. Here is the United States SHADOW OF NIGHT tour schedule for this summer. So far, they have me scheduled to make 19 appearances in 16 US cities in 1 month. Mathematically speaking, that’s a full schedule!
If I’m not swinging by your home town on this jaunt, remember that we have three more of these tours before the end of the trilogy, so don’t despair! PLEASE NOTE: this does not include any foreign tour information (and that includes Canada), because there is no information at this time. When foreign trips are added, I will let you know in an announcement and add them to the EVENTS tab on Facebook. As soon as possible, we will post all tour details here on the webpage, too.
If you are planning to attend an event, I would recommend you check with the bookstores about their signing policies. Understandably, book store owners may not want you to buy my book online and then bring it to their store to be signed. They might require you purchase a book in order to get in the signing line. Personally, I have no problems with signing multiple books or your beloved copies of ADOW—but do check with the stores. I don’t tell them how to run their business!
Finally, if you cannot make it to one of these events but still want a signed copy of SHADOW or ADOW, you can always pre-order and pay for the shipping on a book from one of these stores. Most will take down details for personalization (like “happy birthday Mom!”) if you want the book made out to yourself or someone special, and when I arrive I sign all the pre-orders and they go out in the mail next day. It’s a great way to support bookstores and keep them in our communities. Obviously they cannot send you a signed book before I’ve been there, so keep the timing in mind.
