On the road again

After a nearly two-month rest stop, I'm hitting the road again. Well, sort of. It's a short, one-stop trip.

I kind of thought I'd parked the book tour for good, when I last stopped, back in January, in my hometown of Evanston for a reading at the library. 

There was, however, one place that I still wanted to go, and fortunately it is not too far away. My designated charity, Elyssa's Mission, has a strong base in Winnetka, and the organization's principals have been pushing for me to do a reading at the town's independent bookstore, The Bookstall at Chestnut Court, the Publisher's Weekly 2012 Bookstore of the Year. Well, it took a long time to get this one booked, but it is finally happening at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 14. I've been donating $1 from every soft cover sale of Cheeseland to Elyssa's Mission, and for this one-night-only I'm going to be giving all of my author proceeds to this wonderful charity that does so much to prevent teen suicide. So I do hope you'll come out and support this great cause.

Oh, one more thing, if I still have your attention...I was recently featured on Bill Thompson's The Bookcast, a showcase for indie authors. Listen to the interview here
