Hi, all! This information will be appearing in the Have Author Will Travel sidebar shortly, but here’s the somewhat extended version of my itinerary for the next few months– complete with commentary. (I’ve put in bold those that are free and open to the public. The others require a prior conference registration.)
New York, NY:
— May 25, Book Expo America. I’ll be signing with Deanna Raybourn and M.J. Rose at the MWA booth at BEA at 1:15. If you’re attending BEA, stop on by!
— June 28, 5:30-730, Marriott Marquis (1535 Broadway). This event is free and open to the public. I’ll be signing at Romance Writers of America’s literacy booksigning. There are usually about three hundred authors present, but, being at the end of the alphabet, I’m fairly easy to find!
— November 1, 6:30, talking and signing with Tasha Alexander and Deanna Raybourn! The three of us will be doing a group event at the Mysterious Bookshop, 58 Warren Street.
— June 24-25, Poisoned Pen Conference. An informal gathering for booklovers, the Poisoned Pen conference is a ridiculous amount of fun. I’ll be participating in a History and Mystery tea party on Friday, as well as various events on Saturday, including the late night reading. There is a fee of $50 to attend the conference.
Iselin, New Jersey:
— October 22, 4:00. I’ll be participating in a group signing at the NJRW conference at the Renaissance Woodbridge Hotel, 515 US Highway 1 South. This signing is free and open to the public.
— November 11-13, Readers ‘n Ritas Conference. Come for the panels, stay for the late night costume competition. This will be my third Readers ‘n Ritas visit, because, really, it is just that much fun. There is a fee of $75 to attend the conference.
— November 14, 6:30. Tasha Alexander and I will both be speaking and signing at the fabulous Murder by the Book in Houston (2342 Bissonnet Street).
St. Louis, Missouri:
— September. This is the most up in the air so far. I’m going to be in St. Louis from 9/15 to 9/18 for Bouchercon. I’ll either be doing a full reading or participating in some sort of group signing. I’ll let you know when I find out! But there will be something in St. Louis in mid-September.
As other events come up, I’ll keep you posted!
