I’m thrilled to announce that I am back in the Biskitt (aka, Prescott) today, kicking off part two of the book tour for Hot Season–just as the weather is heating up in the Southwest (well, Phoenix, at least–it was 70 degrees at 8 pm last night when I got in).
After two dates here in the Land of AZ, I’ll be headed back up north to kick off my author/editor mini Northwest tour! Because that’s totally a thing.
If you’re a resident of Portland, take note: no matter where in the city you live, you will be able to come see me at your local indie bookstore. Because this is Portland, and if we don’t have to leave our neighborhoods, we don’t. (Also, we like to support local indies and stuff).
People of the -west I’m looking forward to seeing you at one of these events! =)
