TOUR DATES - October 2012

Exclamation point. Or upside-down person. Whichever.
Guess WHAT.

I have tour dates.

The public ones are listed below. I'm doing TEN (update: make that twenty) school visits besides those, though, in Colorado (Denver area), Michigan (Petosky area), Texas (Dallas area), and Illinois (Chicago area) and was told those aren't announced, because they're not open to public. So that's sad. But if you know me, or we're in some way vaguely related, you can shoot me an email and we can discuss options of disguising yourself as a twelve year old and sneaking in just saying hey in the parking lot, if you're in the area.

Also, I've been getting quite a few emails and tweets from awesome people asking to come do a signing in a specific city or town, which is of course very flattering, but you see, the US is sooooo huuuuuge and I'm not going to every state. Sorry...

Anyway, here are the events that will be open to everyone, and if you're nearby you should COME!

Oh, and if you know me from this blog, you can say "Scathing Jellyfish" and I'll give you one of those Are You Peculiar? pins from BEA. (Which is actually special, because I don't have many left.) (Update: never mind, I have a ton now. So you can ALL have one! :D)

  1. I'm voting for upside-down person. Since I won't be anywhere near those locations, I'll say "Scathing JellyFish" here, just for the fun of it.

    1. I present to you a virtual button of peculiar-ness. I have lots of those. :D

  2. Oh man, no visits to the west? :)

  3. NO VISITS TO BOSTON? What the hell is this blasphemy????? Gah! I'll try to see if I can get my butt to NYCC or BoW, but I'm not 100% sure. Um if not...can we have a virtual hang out? lol ala Skype?

    I owe you an e-mail of updated proportions.

    Best! Rachel :) :) <3

    1. As a fellow Bostonian, I second the blasphemous WTH nature of the incredible Mr. Stefan Bachmann's lack of presence. :(

    2. I SORRY. They didn't send me there. But if I ever get sent on tour again I will go *everywhere*, ever. :)

  4. Well, I'm sad you aren't coming to Washington State, but the US is HUGE, it's true. I just picked up a copy of your book and my son is already fighting me for it :) It's SO good. Enjoy your tour.

  5. I shall try my best to get to the Books of Wonder event on the 14th!

  6. Ah...bummer. I wish there was one closer to where I am, I'd certainly be at one if I could. In any case, have lots of fun on your visit!

  7. Please come to San Francisco, California! You have a fan base there as well

  8. Come to Minneapolis! It's not that far from your last stop, but still far enough that I can't make it down.

    1. Woah, have been sadly neglecting comments. Alas, I don't decide which places I go to, and haven't heard anything about visiting CA, or UK, or MN. But thanks so much! :D Hopefully I can someday... :)

  9. I am so excited for you to come to Naperville through Andersons!!!!We started to read the PEculiars outloud in class and it is so addicting!!! I am super happy that I am one of the lucky students that gets to prepare for your arrivial!! I will make sure to remember the code word scathing jellyfish if I get the chance to meet you. (Fingers crossed!!) :)

    1. Aw, thank you!! Super glad you guys are liking it. I'm exciting, too. :D

  10. UM, AGES AGO? We should have met up! O_O

    1. Tis a tragedy indeed. :( Darn it, I need more access to the internet so I can find out about these things.
