Spreading Cheeseland across Chicagoland

Three months ago today, Eckhartz Press released Cheeseland to the world. In that short span, I have spread Cheeseland, via the radio airwaves, to 14 states.

Cheeseland is about a road trip, and telling others about it has been quite a ride so far. That ride is far from over. This fall I’m spreading Cheeseland all over Chicagoland. I invite you to hop in for the ride. 

Without further ado, I present my fall book tour:

  • ·         On Sunday, September 23, at 2 PM, I will be up on the stage for a live book club hosted by Penny Golden, Author Afternoons at the Beverly Arts Center, 2407 W. 111th St., in Chicago’s Beverly neighborhood.
  • ·         On Sunday, September 30, at 8 PM, I will be reading from Cheeseland at Sunday Salon at Black Rock Bar, 3614 N. Damen, Chicago, where they “offer the Windy City’s tastiest prose each month.”
  • ·         On Sunday, August 25, at 1:30 PM, I’ll be presenting a program “Turning Reality Into Fiction” as part of the ongoing Authors on the Fox series at Gail Borden Public Library, 270 N. Grove Ave., Elgin, IL. Register for this program here.
  • ·         On Wednesday, November 14, 7 PM, I’ll be on the card for Local Authors Night at The Book Cellar, 4736-38 N. Lincoln Ave., in Chicago’s Lincoln Square neighborhood
  • ·         On Saturday, December 8, 2-4 PM, I’ll be signing copies of Cheeseland at Read Between the Lynes, 129 Van Buren St., Woodstock, IL.

As you can see, I’ll be traversing from the South Side to the North Side and way out into the burbs. Keep an eye on my website for the latest updates on where I’ll be going next. I hope you will join me at one or more of these stops. Just be sure to buckle up. It can be a pretty wild ride.

Finally, a big THANK YOU to all of you who have supported my author adventures in so many different ways. Keep those Goodreads and Amazon reviews coming!   


Breakfast of Cheeseland

I was recently fortunate to be interviewed by Cyrus Webb for his "Breakfast with Books" program on Conversation Radio. Listen to the 30-minute interview podcast here. Cyrus was also nice enough to put together a 1-minute promo ad for my book, which you can download here. Or click on the player below.

For all of my ISU friends, look who's reading my book! I'm told that CHEESELAND is also on display at the Alumni Center, part of a collection of books by ISU alums. We'll have an extra stop on the way to Pub II for the next reunion.
