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.
UPDATE: On Saturday, October 10th, I was going to attempt a drive-by book signing sponsored by Children’s book World in Los Angeles. However, due to demand, we realized that there was no way we could ensure everyone’s safety as well as we would have hoped.
So now, there will be an exclusive virtual author meet-and-greet instead. The bad news is, I can’t meet you in person, but the good news is, you don’t have to leave your house! And anyone can join, no matter what city they live in.
This will be on Saturday, October 10th from 2-3pm Pacific Time. RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED. For 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.
