The Glamour in Glass Moving Book Tour!

This entry is part 1 of 6 in the series Moving from PDX to Chicago

Rob and I are moving to Chicago in April and we’re driving. I joked about doing a whistle-stop tour as part of the move and then we realized that it might actually be a good idea.

Crazy? Yes. But a way to visit places I wouldn’t get to otherwise. Because we are moving we’re hesitant to set up any actual readings. I mean… you know what happens when I travel. Instead of trying to schedule something tight, we’re doing a soft schedule of signings.

What does that mean? Below, I have our route and the approximate date of each city we plan to spend the night in. If you live along this route and have a bookstore within 5 miles of the interstate, I will stop in to sign and personalize a book for you.

How does this work?

  1.  Contact the closest bookstore on the route to pre-order a book and request that I stop in. (We will post the stores that I will be visiting, so check the list.)
  2. Ask the stores to contact my publicist at Tor, Alexis Nixon, ([email protected]) a to confirm that they have the book in stock.
  3. I will give the stores a date of arrival and an approximate time.
  4.  Two hours before arriving, I call to confirm with the store and tweet that I will be there. If you want to come by to meet me, I’ll be happy to say hello.
  5. We fly like the wind to the next city.

    I don’t live there any more, but The Tattered Cover in Denver is the single best bookstore in North America. (According to David Bowie.) You should definitely stop there for a visit.

    I’m in the DC area, so not this time for me! But good luck with your book tour and move!

    Moving?  Moving?!? Harumph.  But I just discovered your work.  So I’ve only a couple of handfuls of weeks in which to actually encounter you in person?  Ah, well.

    The Tattered Cover (either Colfax or 16th Street Mall) is awesome. Or if you’re interested in small independent store, the Broadway Book Mall is nice stop. As a Denver-area resident, I’d be happy to  go to either place.

    I just contacted The Bookworm in Omaha to try to set up something. I’ll let you know when/if I hear anything.
