Upcoming Events in Reno and the UP

I hate posting updates while I’m away from my home computer.

I’m up in the north woods right now, a lovely place, isolated. Great for a little family vacation. It’s the sort of place where you can only get cell phone reception if all the local bears are standing in the right places so the radio waves reflect the signal in the right way.

But it’s hell on internet, too. Not only do I have to leave behind my lovely clicky keyboard behind, but I have to use a borrowed computer. Last night I typed up a post three separate times, only to have my dad’s computer erase it, rather than saving it.

This I do not love.

Anyway, I’m at the local library right now, and I’m posting to let y’all know about some reading and signings that are coming up in the next couple weeks.

Note: This first event is in less than a week. Tell your friends….

Next week I’ll be in Reno for Worldcon. (My schedule for the convention is posted on the events page and on facebook.)

But since I’m going to be in the area for the first time, I thought I’d do a signing for people who live nearby but are unable to attend Worldcon.

So Sundance Books & Music is hosting the event which will be held next door at the Nevada Museum of Art. I’ll be doing my standard reading, Q&A and signing. The store will be selling my books and you can contact them at 775-786-1188 or on their website or facebook. I’ve put up a facebook event as well if you’re interested.

[Edit: Because the theater we’re having the reading in only has about 200 seats, the bookstore is suggesting that you call ahead and reserve your place. That way you can be sure to have a seat waiting for you when show up.]

The last weekend of August, I’ll be doing an “Author vs. Author” event at McLean & Eakin Booksellers with Ernie Cline, whose first book, Ready Player One, is coming out on the 16th.

It’s Awesome. How Awesome?

Since I was going to be driving through the UP on my way back from Petosky, I thought I should take the time do do a signing. Luckily, the lovely people at Snowbound Books were willing to accommodate me.

I’ll be doing my typical reading/Q&A/and signing. Hardcovers of NOTW and WMF with be available at the store, as well as copies of The Adventures of the Princess and Mr. Whiffle. I’ll also have copies of the promotional sticker with me.

For more info, or to reserve a copy of the book, call: 906-228-4448.

That’s all for now, folks. Sorry the post isn’t prettier and wittier, but the library is about to close.

New post on Monday.
