    Yay!!!! You’re coming to Seattle! How awesome! Marking my calendar.
    I hope you have fun in Germany, and that your kids aren’t abducted by aliens while you’re away.

  2. Chris Hall says:

    I really need to get a house next to Mysterious Galaxies or something. Seems like every time I really want to go to an event there, something prevents it. (Like being up in LA)

    Dan– Remember to go eat good Mexican food while in Sacramento. Maybe I’ll tell my parents to go by to point and laugh at you.

    Chris: If you’re in LA, go to Dark Delicacies. It’s an incredible store–one of the best indies I’ve ever been to, and completely dedicated to horror.

  5. Brent says:

    Great! I’ll miss you by a week in Germany, but I’ll go to one in LA.

  6. Andrea says:

    I’ll totally come to one of your readings in Leipzig!

  7. Nicole says:

    Glad to hear you’re coming to Seattle. I’m a fan of Writing Excuses, so this will shame me (rightfully so) into buying your book!

  8. Ammon says:

    What? No east coast, or midwest stops on the tour? Rot! Come to Ohio! Thanks for posting your dates!

  9. admin says:

    Sorry, Ammon, we tried to work out a midwest stop and coudln’t make it fit. The good news is, I’ll be in Columbus, Ohio in October for World Fantasy, which happens to coincide with the US launch of Mr. Monster.

  10. Lusche says:

    WOW! That’s great! I was looking for a Texas, somewhere…hmmm. Wish you all the best!

  11. Titus says:

    Aww, man. Looks like I’m going to be going to Vegas again next month. You crazy authors and your stopping in cities near me. Making me spend money on your awesome books. I… hate it when that happens? >_> <_<

  12. Chris says:

    Obligatory complaint about lack of presence in locale I can reach with facility.
    Expression of understanding that these things are out of your hands.
    Statement of hope that next time I’ll be luckier.

  13. Liz Adams says:

    You are signing at the same time as Jim Butcher in LA. Sadness.

  14. Will says:

    So… any chance of a stop in Wisconsin sometime? Nobody ever comes to Wisconsin. You’d be breaking new ground!
