We’re finally starting to put together a tour for the paperback release of Look Me in the Eye, which goes on sale September 9. Most paperbacks are merely less expensive versions of the hardcover, but mine is actually changed and improved in addition to being price-engineered. Furthermore, thanks to TMS research, I myself am changed and improved. Now, you can see it all for yourself. It should add up to an entertaining spectacle.
And actually, fuel costs being what they are, paperback tours are a bit of an oddity this year. Luckily, though, I thrive on oddity. And now it’s time to ask all of you for help. I’ve got a preliminary list of places, but I depend upon you to gather an audience.
The list of cities I’m visiting was initially determined by my publisher, who looks at your requests, nationwide sales trends and requests from booksellers. We (I say “we” because we share the paperback travel costs) then weigh the timing and travel issues, and come up with a firm schedule, which should happen within 2 weeks.
Here’s a partial but mostly complete list of cities.
Los Angeles, CA
San Francisco, CA
Las Vegas, NV
Burlington, VT – I’ll be at the Burlington Book Festival the second weekend of September.
Boston, MA – I’m appearing at the Asperger Association conference on October 9, but I’ve also been invited to some bookstores and colleges later on
For the most part, these are all cities I did not reach on my original hardcover tour. If you live in any of these cities, and you’re interested in hooking me up with local schools, autism groups, Asperger groups, parent organizations, etc . . . I’d love to hear from you. All of these book tour appearances will be free of charge, and open to the public.
If you work in media in any of these cities, I’d love to hear from you too . . .
My publicist is Ava Kavyani, firstname.lastname@example.org
My official mom/school liaison is Jan Anderson, email@example.com
And I am still at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you want me to appear just for you, someplace else, there’s a link to the folks at Lavin (my lecture agents) on the right sidebar. Lavin books my college appearances, and my engagements with boards of education, private schools, and professional societies. We still have a few open dates for them.
Once again, I hope to meet a bunch more of you bloggers in person. And with names like Anti Wife or Sex Scenes, who wouldn’t want to meet you in person? I’ll even go on a diet and exercise so I’ll be bright-eyed and alert for the occasion.
It’s good to be getting going again . . .
