Well, I'm home for a few days before going out on tour again, and it's just in time to deal with this terrible head cold, ugh! Have swapped coffee for tea and Theraflu, and had the terrible experience this morning of having to see my face on a live video-chat preview screen. Hello face, goodbye face. Go back to bed, face. Ha!
It was a test for the LIVE AT THE LOUNGE live video chat tomorrow at 8 pm E. Hope you will come and join in and ask me questions! If my tour isn't bringing me near your town, come here and say hi! There will be the opportunity to ask your questions live onscreen, if you want to, and if your computer has a camera and all that. Or you can just type them in, that's fine too. But please ask questions!
Little Brown's LIVE AT THE LOUNGE "spreecast" is this really cool new platform they have; see recent interviews, and take note of upcoming ones.
Sign up! Join in! Come a little before 8 pm E/5 pm P tomorrow to get set up. All participants will be entered into a drawing for a signed copy of DAYS OF BLOOD & STARLIGHT, so there's that bonus too. Yay!
And while I'm here, a few more pictures from the last few days in Texas and Arizona. Thank you to the bookstores and schools that hosted me, it was a fantastic time! And thank you to Little, Brown, for making it happen :-)
