Summer Fun: The Fixer Upper Tour

Dear Friends: Here it is, my summer road map. I’m hittin’ the road starting June 23, and I hope to see and meet lots of my blog buddies, from the Jersey Shore to Sarasota, and lots of places in between. It would also be just grand if you’d buy lots of books, even if I’m not coming to your corner of the globe. Like, enough to put me on the New York Times bestseller list. Get me on the printed list, and I’ll buy you all a pony. Okay, I lied about the pony thing, but I would be very grateful if you could do that one little thing. As with anything, this schedule is subject to hurricanes, the whims of Delta airlines, and rental cars conking out on the side of the interstate in Mudflap Mississippi–don’t laugh, it happened last year. So if you’re coming to a signing from any distance away, you might want to call the store to confirm ahead of time. If you can’t make it to an event, you can always call the store and buy a book (make that several books) ahead of time and I can sign and personalize it for you before leaving. And a final, hopefully delicately wrought word about bookstore etiquette: these booksellers have spent time, money and effort arranging an event. While I’m always happy to sign copies of past releases, hell, I’ll sign anybody’s book, if that’s what you want, it’s not really nice to bring in a new copy of THE FIXER UPPER which you’ve purchased elsewhere. It’s kind of like taking a Burger King bag to sit and eat at McDonald’s. And P.S.–if I’m coming to a town near you, feel free to leave me a comment about cool junking opportunities.

  1. I had planned to come see you for the first time (though I've been reading you for years now) at Page and Palette but I'm going to be in Georgia then. 🙁 Go figure!

  2. I will see you in Nashville. Missed the last time you were here. I just love your books and have the whole family reading them.

  3. I have to admit, I am absolutely IN LOVE with your books! I'll definitely be seeing you in Madison since I'm currently in Athens for school. I'm so excited! You're quite possibly my most favorite author ever! :0]
