Twenty-eight days until Please Ignore Vera Dietz and things here are a little crazy.

First--Arizona Tour Dates:
Oct. 21st Thurs: Hamilton High School Teen Reads: Books & Beats
Oct. 22nd Fri: 7pm Chandler Mall Barnes and Noble signing
Oct. 23rd Sat: 4pm Changing Hands Bookstore

Arizona fans--mark your calendars! I can't wait to see you.

Second--The Pizza Delivery Blog Tour is Coming.

Starting October 11th, I'll be popping around to cool people's blogs to deliver them some [imaginary] pizza. The official rules go something like this: They made an order from a toppings menu. (**You'll see it soon.) The order went into the A.S. King random subject generator and several question ideas came out. My hosts then skillfully crafted questions for me and I will now deliver them their answers throughout the months of October and November. Look for links here and on Twitter as the tour unfolds. I have to say--some of these questions were hilarious. We'll kick off with Carrie Jones on October 11th!

**In a week or two, I will open a version of this to all of you here on the blog. Wait for it...wait for it.

Third--Some awesome linkage!

Ravenous Reader read Please Ignore Vera Dietz and reviewed it here. THEN, she started an ARC tour. Last time I checked, there was still a spot left on the list!

Here's a GREAT interview at Ellz Readz. She'll be giving away a few copies of The Dust of 100 Dogs in the next few days. Stay tuned to her blog!

Fourth--Some Local Events
  • Don't forget the National Launch Party for Please Ignore Vera Dietz at Aaron's Books in Lititz, PA, October 16th from 6-8pm
  • I will be talking about being an author and anything else you want me to talk about at the Exeter Community Library on October 12th (launch day!) from 6-8pm. This is my old hood library and I am completely stoked about this! Thrilled to be a part of the Reading Reads event!
  • I'll be doing Teen Reads Books & Beats at Conrad Weiser High School on Monday October 18th followed by a Q&A and meet the author at the [awesome] Robesonia Community Library later that night.
  • I'm working on a few more events, so stay tuned for the full first leg tour list in the next week or two!
I'm hammering away here on Everybody Sees the Ants so please excuse me if I'm scare for a while. You know the routine. Until then, live long and prosper.
