Dan’s Giant Book Tour in July

I have a new book coming out in July, plus I’m still not done touring for PARTIALS, so it’s time for a Big Giant Book Tour. This is by far the mosst ambitious tour I’ve ever attempted, and I’ll be visiting some places I’ve never been before. Coming soon to a bookstore near you:

July 3: Salt Lake City, UT – Weller Book Works
*This is the launch party, and we’re planning something special. You don’t want to miss it.

July 6: Birmingham, AL – Little Professor Bookcenter

July 7: Atlanta, GA – Peerless Book Store

July 8: Houston, TX – Murder by the Book

July 9: St. Louis, MO – Left Bank Books        
* This event, and the next few on the list, are part of the “Dark Days of Summer” tour, including me, S.J. Kincaid, Aprilynne Pike, and Veronica Roth. If you like YA, science fiction, paranormal, dystopia, or anything even remotely related to them, you want to be at one of these events.

July 10: Huntington Beach, CA – Barnes & Noble                    
*(Stop 2 for the Dark Days of Summer)

July 11: Salt Lake City, UT – King’s English Bookshop    
*(Stop 3 for the Dark Days of Summer)

July 12-15: San Diego, CA – ComicCon 
*(My full schedule at ComicCon will be announced as soon as we have it, but it will include at least one Dark Days event and a Hollow City signing. Brandon Sanderson and Producer Jordo will be there as well, so we’re going to try to record some Writing Excuses, but I can’t guarantee that it will happen or that they’ll be public events.)

July 16: Beaverton, OR – Powell’s Books

July 17: Denver, CO – Tattered Cover Book Store

July 18: Burbank, CA – Dark Delicacies
*I will be signing at Dark Delicacies with Chuck Palahniuk(!), which is one of those pipe dream fanboy kind of things for me. I will do my best not to act like a blathering idiot the entire time.

July 19: Seattle, WA – University Bookstore

July 21: San Francisco, CA – Borderlands Books

July 23: Orem, UT – Barnes & Noble

The tour ends on July 23, and on July 25 or 26 I will plop my little family on an airplane and fly to Germany. This could be your last chance for the next year to see me in the US, so if you can get to any of these signings, please come! II’d love to see you and deface your books.

  1. And then you’re moving to Germany. Good thing you’re young, Dan! That’s a killer schedule. Good luck wth it.

    Yay! Back to Seattle. Looking forward to it. Just finished Partials, by the way. Man, you pulled out a killer ending. I’m really anxious to read the next book, now.

  3. If things go to plan, I should see you in Atlanta.

    Are you doing group dinners/lunches again on this tour? If so, I’ll join you in Beaverton.

    Now I’m really, REALLY sad I couldn’t get a ticket for ComicCon.


  6. Hey, B’Ham. That’s where I served my mission. Remember, when the gang bangers shoot at you, it is only to show they care.

    Also, the clock is ticking. Tacos, Dan. TACOS!!!! Steve and I will hold the tacos hostage. (I ate 25 of them in one sitting this week, so I am the King of Tacos) Since you are mister fancy fulltime writer guy, you need to just come up here one day for lunch. We will ply you with genuine Mexican street tacos while you tell us all the secrets of the campaign.

    I’ll see you in Huntington Beach! I can’t wait :)

  8. Oh, hey! I will come see you in Burbank. We’ll be living in Pasadena by then.

    Hey Dan-

    Just curious if you are signing at the UW bookstore, or the Seattle U bookstore. The link goes to the Seattle U site, FYI.

    What time is the July 11th signing at The King’s English?

    I kinda fell into dan wells writing by pure accident.There was a 15 books for $10 deal and I needed one more, so I picked up the book because the cover and title intrigued me and put it in my cart. It kind of fell into the “read later” book pile and was forgotten. A couple months later it caught my eye, so I picked it up and read it. OMG I CANT BELIEVE I WAITED THAT LONG TO READ THAT BOOK!! I absolutely fell in love with the awkward and careful John Cleaver and proceeded to eat up the other two books. You are a literary genius Dan Wells, and I only wish that your tour would stop by in Buffalo, NY. Can’t wait to start reading “partials”!
