Back in March of this year, the pandemic began just as I was about to release Tyrannosaurus Wrecks. I was forced to cancel my multi-state book tour and did a single virtual event to celebrate the launch.
Well, it’s now six months later and the pandemic is still with us.
Now, when Spy School Revolution comes out on October 6, I am going to attempt a book tour, but it is going to be very different than tours used to be.
Let’s start with the things that you can attend:
Once again, I will be doing a virtual launch on Facebook Live with Once Upon A Time Bookstore. This will be on October 6 at 7pm eastern time, 4pm pacific time. I will talk about my inspiration for SSR and then take questions from the audience. You can see it by clicking here.
If you would like a personalized, signed book, contact Once Upon A Time. Click here or call them at (818) 248-9668. The sooner you get your order in, the better.
Then, I am going to try something new. I will be doing a drive by book signing at Children’s Book World in West Los Angeles. 10580 W Pico Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90064.
This will be on Saturday, October 10th from 2-3pm. RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED. For this event, I will be in person at Children’s Book World, although keeping a safe distance from visitors. Still, you should be able to say hi, ask a question and get a book signed. Fir more details, contact Children’s Book World by clicking here or calling them at 310-559-2665.
I am looking to add other virtual public events over the next few days.
I am also working with a few bookstores around the country to do virtual school visits. For these, I will get on Zoom with the schools, do a brief presentation and then take questions. Obviously, I can’t work with every bookstore in the country, but here is who I will be working with:
- Novel Neighbor – St Louis, MO
- Little Shop of Stories – Atlanta, GA
- Pages – Manhattan Beach, CA
- Blue Willow – Houston, TX
- Rakestraw – Bay Area, CA
- BookPeople – Austin, TX
If you go to school in any of these cities and you are hoping for a virtual visit, tell your teachers or your school librarian to contact their local store. Maybe they can make it happen.
