Only TWO MONTHS until A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU launches on Nov. 4! I’ve been looking forward to you guys reading this one for so long that it’s hard to believe the wait is nearly over. And very soon, I’ll take to the road for a series of events both in the US and abroad to help introduce ATPOY to the world. Wondering if I’m headed anywhere near you? Then keep reading —
I don’t have final times/places/etc. for the vast majority of these events, so I’m just giving general locations and dates here. More complete information will be added soon!
US Events without copies of ATPOY (but with swag)
BALTIMORE BOOK FESTIVAL: Baltimore, MD – Sept. 26-28
SOUTHERN FESTIVAL OF BOOKS: Nashville, TN – Oct. 10-12
TEXAS BOOK FESTIVAL: Austin, TX – Oct. 25-26
International events with international version of A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU
THE PHILIPPINES! Yes, I’m finally coming to the Philippines for real! I’ll be touring along with the fabulous Madeline Roux, with events in both Manila and Cebu City. Again, exact locations are still coming – but we’ll be there from Oct. 15-19.
US Events with red-hot new copies of A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU
First of all, the Compelling Reads Tour! Several terrific YA Series Insiders authors like Martina Boone, Kimberley Griffiths Little, S.E. Green and more (plus friends like Beth Revis, Jessica Spotswood, Diana Peterfreund, and Melissa Marr) will be touring along the East Coast. Follow the link to see each and every event, but I’ll be appearing at the following:
11/1 – Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh, NC — 3 p.m.
11/2 – Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill, NC — 2 p.m.
11/3 – Malaprops Bookstore in Asheville, NC — 7 p.m.
11/4 – ImaginOn Library in Charlotte, NC — 4:30 p.m. — LAUNCH PARTY! Both Kimberley Griffiths Little (FORBIDDEN) and I will be celebrating our launches on that day, so come and celebrate with us! (I’ve never actually done a launch party before — I’m so excited.)
11/5 – Fiction Addiction in Greenville, SC — 5 p.m.
11/6 – Books-A-Million in Columbia, SC — 5 p.m.
I will reprint the full travel schedule and all the awesome authors appearing in a separate post within a few days, but this lets you know the basics for the ATPOY events of the tour. (And yes, even though I’m visiting those first three stores before the official launch date, Harper has agreed to send copies for early sale. So these will be the very first copies sold! Don’t you want one?)
And then, a couple weeks later, I’ll be appearing at the YALSA Symposium in Austin, TX on 11/14, but only those of you who are librarians will be at that one. 😀
More dates are coming up before too long — including, I think, another international event — but more on these stories as they develop. For now, you know where I’ll be, and I hope to see you there and then!
