Even though the kickstarter is in its final, most dramatic days, I’m going to take a moment here to talk about a couple events I have coming up in the near future….
These events are just for the next month or so, I’ve got more stuff coming up later on in the year. And, as always, you can always find out where I’m going by checking on my Tour Schedule page. Or you can follow me and see my events on Facebook.
Also, since some of these events are on the near horizon (and some of them were only finalized days ago) I’d appreciate it if you’d spread the word to anyone you know in the areas that you think might be interested.
Okay, first off, what I said up there in the title about going to Boston? That was kind of a lie.
I’m actually going to be in Cambridge. I just said Boston so that more people would understand what part of the country I was actually visiting. Because if there’s one thing I hate, is people e-mailing me 3 days AFTER I do an event in a city saying, “I didn’t know you were going to be near Boston! When will you be back?!???”
(Then I do this. Through the internet. With my mind.)
So yeah. I’m going to be in the Boston *area* I’m doing a convention and a signing while I’m there.
Thursday March 20th
I’ll be doing a reading and signing hosted by Pandemonium Books and Games. But because these days sometimes 300-400 people show up to my events, it’s actually being held at the nearby Christian Life Center, so that more people can fit. (It’s a much better venue.)
The bookstore is asking that folks contact them for a ticket in advance, just so they can keep an accurate head count.
If you’re going to come, either email books [@] pandemoniumbooks.com or go on their website.
Thursday, March 20th
Reading, Q&A, and Signing
Christian Life Center
85 Bishop Allen Drive
Cambridge, MA 02139
Friday March 21st
Friday, I’ll be doing a talk at the Cambridge Google Office. It doesn’t have the space to be open to the public, but it’ll be recorded and posted online later, and if you have any particular questions you’d want asked, you can post them… I dunno…. Somewhere. Maybe just shout them directly at your computer. I’m pretty sure the people at Google have a way of tracking that by now.
Edit: Amanda suggested people post their questions in the comments here on the blog. Which has a certain elegant simplicity to it. But if I were you, I’d both post them below, AND shout them at your computer, just to be safe.
I’m heading over to Harvard to go to Vericon, the actual convention. Part of the con also includes a public signing at the Harvard Book Store as well, so that’s another chance to see me and get your books signed.
Here are my official events:
Friday, March 21
7pm – 8pm: Panel on writing SF/Fantasy
Saturday, March 22
10am – 11am: Author Q&A
11am – 12:30pm: Panel on Interactive Media – Sever Hall
1pm – 2pm: Signing event at Harvard Book Store, 1256 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA 02138 (Facebook Event)
2pm – 3pm: World Building panel
5:20pm – 6:10pm: Keynote Speech
Even cooler, there’s going to be a casual gaming room open for the entire con. You’ll probably be able to find me there during some of my off hours.
If I end up picking up an extra panel or two, I’ll post about it on my twitter, so y’all can stalk me more efficiently.
After a (very short) break, I’ll be heading out to Portland to do some cool stuff with Paul and Storm.
March 28, 2014
I won’t be doing an official signing there, as I’m only going to be in town for a day. But I will be making a stop by Powell’s to sign as much of their stock as they’ll let me, so if you need a signed book and live in the Portland area, Powell’s will be the place to go.
From Portland, Paul and Storm and I will be making the drive to Seattle for two shows at The Triple Door.
Originally, there was only going to be one show, but it sold out really quickly, so now we’re doing an early all-ages show, and a late 21+ show.
Edit: Want to change your tickets from early show to late show?
Call the box office 206.838.4333 or the Maitre D direct line 206.838.4349.
Shows at 7pm PST and 10pm PST
The Triple Door
Sunday March 30th – Emerald City Comicon
After these shows, I’ll be attending Emerald City Comicon and doing a couple of panels on Sunday. I’ll probably also lurk around the booths of Badali Jewelry and Geek Chic too, as they’re some of my favorite people.
Here’s my official schedule:
Sunday, March 30th:
11 – 11:50 am: Writer’s Block Presents Patrick Rothfuss
1-1:50pm: I Need a Hero: Writing Hero Stories for Modern Readers
I’ll be seeing a lot of you soon…

Also, if you’re curious, here’s pretty much every con I currently am attending for the rest of the year. Rest assured, if I’m doing a con, I usually do my best to have a public reading somewhere in the area for those of you who aren’t really into conventions.

And lastly, here’s an early peek at one of the cards in the the Kickstarter. This one’s from the Modegan Deck, to be specific.
(It’s worth embiggening.)
This card is The Hollow Gods. You don’t know about them yet.
But you will. Soon….
