It's finally here, folks. Release week! I plan on creating a new blog post every day this week so be sure to revisit my site or you might miss something. Boy howdy, are you people in for some treats!
My first interview went live last night. If you missed it, you can read my replies by clicking here. There'll be plenty more interviews, guest posts, reviews, and spotlights these next couple weeks. I've been a busy little bee and can't begin to thank all the reviewers, bloggers, and authors for their generosity.
Thanks to all of you who've sent emails, texts, and dialed me up with questions about autographed copies, I finally proved to the Missus you all were, in fact, real and not just more of my fanciful dreams. We're both incredibly humbled by that show of support so we put our heads together to figure out a way to thank you all in person.
So break out your calendars, people, and cue this "new" song I heard by Diddy feat. Skylar Grey...I'm coming home.
My schedule is still coming together, but the evening of Wed., May 28th, I'll be at Lebanon Public Library. You can find me at Thorntown Public Library the evening of Thursday, May 29th.
Side note: These are the two libraries I've visited countless times as a kid. Both will always be special to me for the books and movies they lent me over the years. I'm beyond excited for my journey to come full circle by speaking at these two libraries!
Okay, back to the schedule....
Fri., May 30th, I aim to be in the Grant County area.
Saturday, May 31st, I plan on heading back to Indy for another library that afternoon, (hopefully in Fishers since it's one I frequented). That evening, I'll try to arrange a meet-up at a restaurant in Indy. Afterwards, I might be convinced to make an appearance in Broad Ripple, or wherever a majority of you like to go on a Saturday night. I'm open to suggestions. Hit me up.
As for Sunday, June 1st, I'm going to see if I can lockdown another Indianapolis library for the afternoon, but that night I'll probably just hang out at Mom & Pops. Figure I won't see them much with everything else going on.
Those are the evening schedules though. The daytime schedules are something I'm just as excited about...I'm looking to visit high schools and talk writing with students if any of you English teachers are willing got host me. :)
I already have a few locked in so I don't have much wiggle room, but I'd love to visit another Indianapolis high school on Thursday, May 29th.
Friday, May 30th is still a work in progress, but there's a chance I'll be in/around the Grant County area. Lemme know if you're at a school near there and I might be able to fit you in.
Whew, okay, that should take care of the Indiana crowd.
Chicago crew, I'll be in town for a wedding the first weekend in August. Haven't locked in any libraries there yet, but keep a lookout when it gets closer to time. I'd love to catch up with all of you familiar faces and any fans/readers I haven't met yet. :)
Now, for those of you who don't live in either area or can't make it to the meet-ups.
I'm researching related paperwork, taxes, etc. so I could offer direct print sales to save time/shipping costs. However, that could take awhile since the next couple weeks I'll be focused on the release and (hopefully) keeping that party going. Haha.
If you don't want to wait on me to find the answers I need, private message through Facebook or my website contact form me so we can figure some other way to get you a signed copy. (It'll probably amount to you shipping it to me, I sign it, then ship it back).
Alright, peeps. That's all I got for now. Hope you all had a fantastic Easter weekend and you're ready for what lies ahead. I am!
Stick with me. I mean to kick the Amazon door off its hinges this Thursday! ;)
