On a Book Tour: Kind of like being a rockstar but not really


Maybe I should stick to writing books

I’m officially “on tour”. My memoir is now available on Kindle and in paperback soon. I’m taking the world by storm over here. At least in my own mind. And isn’t that really what matters? Here’s a little list of articles, blog posts, interviews and book events out now and upcoming. Oh the glamour.

  1. Are you coming to the Tri-Cities for your interview? If so, do you have any book signings planned here? It’s short notice but I could throw something informal together. There are a number of patrollers in the T.C. who’d be interested, as well as the IMAC club and etc.

    • Teresa!
      That’s so generous. For this interview (which might be either Monday or Friday, actually, so stay tuned!) I will be calling in over the phone. However, when I start my book tour, I’ll let you know if I’m passing through the Tri-Cities. You’re the best.

You people are amazing. Thanks for commenting.
