Ahoy All Floridians…

I am coming your way!

This Thursday (Feb. 10) I will be hitting the Barnes and Noble in the Coconut Point Mall in Estero, FL from 4-6pm. In addition to hitting it, I will also sign books.

February 11th is going to be jammed with Celebration of Reading events, and many thanks to former Governor Jeb Bush for inviting me to participate. I will be meeting Floridian winners of a 100 Cupboards writing contest for breakfast and then heading into a whirlwind of events for the rest of the day. Hope to see some of you warm weather types there. Cheers.

Appearance Updates

Aloha, and many apologies for my anti-blogging. For those who missed my TODAY SHOW frolic, click here.

Calling all Seattlites! Tomorrow (Wednesday the 28th), I will be misbehaving in the University Village Barnes and Noble at 7pm. At least until they kick me out.

Calling all Boiseans! On Saturday, May 1, I will be doing a signing in your very own Costco (and eating at least one $1.50 Polish and Sody-pop combo). Come by and watch me apply ketchup to title pages.


April Showers [Updated]

Life is hectic hopping these days, and a fair bit of that is book related. Rather than letting events pass (and blog announcing them too late), I thought I should get a month’s worth of 100 Cupboards news off my chest at once. Here goes.

UPDATE: My date with “The Today Show” has been moved back to April 16th: Ya’ll tune in now, y’here. I’m quite excited that I and 100 Cupboards will be misbehaving thereon.

April 18th: I will be at Comic Con in Chicagoville. For those who may be in attendance, I will be scribbling my name in books from 11:30-12:30 at the Random House booth, and then participating in a panel discussion with two other fantasy authors: Jeff Stone and Victoria Laurie. That goes down at 1:30.

Also April 18th and Unrelated to 100 Cupboards: A documentary film (Remaking the Shroud) airs on the National Geographic Channel at 10pm. I haven’t seen the final version, but I’m pretty sure that if you tune in, you’ll get to see yours truly wiggling into a 1st century tomb in Jerusalem’s Field of Blood. (Had a blast working on this project–especially in Jerusalem).

UPDATE UPDATE April 24th May 1: For my more local fans, I will be doing my first ever Costco signing in Clarkston, WA, Boise, ID a mere hourish 5 hours from my house. I’m quite looking forward to it, especially because I can gorge on free samples and leave little sausage stains on title pages. Time: TBD 2PM.

April 28th: A little further northwest, I will be hitting a couple schools in Seattle before an evening event at the lovely, the timeless, the University Village Barnes and Noble. 7 pm. Hope to see you Seattlites there.

And then comes May . . .


So, Better Homes & Gardens has a nationally syndicated morning show, and they just did a nice little piece of business about the 100 Cupboards series and my own little self. (They even busted into childhood photo territory.) You might notice that I am identified as a Kansas fella, and while this isn’t true, I do like Kansas, so everything works out.

You can watch here.

‘100 Cupboards’ Last Stop, Last Call, Finis, Finale, Finorum

So, for those who were following the blog tour, the sixth and final stop (for myself and for Richard) hit the interwebs on Saturday at Fireside Musings. If you want to see all of Richard’s journaled adventures in one place, books4yourkids just stuck them all together (missing only entry #5 which can be seen over at Becky’s Book Reviews). Thanks for following, and many thanks to the various blogs and bloggers who invited me in and let me put my feet on the sofa.
