Heading Midwest

Tomorrow we'll be leaving for our Official Popularity Papers Goes West booktour. We'll be hitting bookstores in Dayton, Cincinnati, Columbus, Indianapolis, St. Louis, Omaha, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Pittsburgh, as well as visiting friends in Des Moines, Denver, The Middle of Nowhere Wisconsin, and Cleveland--it's going to be a busy two and a half weeks.

I'll be keeping a blog about the trip called The Yellow Car Chronicles, so if you know anyone in any of those cities please show them the blog and let them know I'm in town. Also on the blog are pictures of me getting lovingly mauled by the Phillie Phanatic while giving blood, so there's something for everyone.

A cartoonist friend of mine, Ryan Wilson of Moo Cow Fan Club, once wished me at least one kid at every book signing. It's really hard as a debut author to bring people in--I've done a lot of events since the book came out with some great turnouts and some less encouraging ones (once I had to be content with two kids and six teenagers who had volunteered to work the event for school credits). Here's hoping!


  1. Congrats neighbor! Have a great trip and I'll be sure to check in on the blog!

  2. Thanx for posting, Amy Ig! Keep the updates coming. The future is now!
