As is traditional, I’m going to be hitting the road to celebrate the launch of The Ashford Affair in just a little over a month.

Here’s the list of events so far:

April 9th (Tuesday), 7:00 PM, Scottsdale, AZ: the Ashford launch party!

I’ll be discussing and signing The Ashford Affair at the Poisoned Pen in Scottsdale, Arizona. If you can’t make it to the event, but would like a personalized copy, just get in touch with the wonderful people at the Poisoned Pen before nightfall on April 9th and I’ll make sure to sign it for you while I’m there.

April 11th (Thursday), 7:00 PM, Ann Arbor, MI:

I’m heading back to another one of my favorite bookstores, Nicola’s Books in Ann Arbor, for a reading and signing. This is invariably one of the highlights of book tour for me.

April 12th (Friday), 1:00 PM, Gurnee, IL:

The clever folks at Warren Newport Public Library came up with the brilliant idea of having a coffee and cookies event for a book set partly on a coffee plantation. I’ll be sipping coffee and chatting about The Ashford Affair. The event (and coffee) are free, but if you’d like to attend, register on their site so they know how much coffee to brew! (There will also be copies of Ashford there for sale, courtesy of Lake Forest Books.)

April 15th (Monday), 6:00 PM, New York, NY:

Come join me on my home turf at the Corner Bookstore for a reading and signing of The Ashford Affair. This one is particularly dear to my heart, since it’s just around the corner from where I grew up. I used to walk past the Corner Bookstore every single day on my walk to school.

And that’s the round-up!

I’ll also be speaking at the Virginia Festival of the Book in Charlottesville, Virginia on March 23rd, on a panel with Tasha Alexander, Deanna Raybourn and Kristen Callihan. (It’s always great to get to hang out with my favorite people and call it “work”.) Since it’s before the release of The Ashford Affair, it doesn’t count as an official Ashford event, but I will be bringing bookplates with me to sign if you’d like one to paste into your upcoming copy of Ashford.

    Congratulations on your book tour! I can’t wait for the Ashford Affair to come out, I just wish you could come around San Francisco or Santa Cruz 😛

    We still need to get you out to Oak Park! Gurnee is just too far for me (I have no car at the moment). 🙁
