Just a quick note from me here in book project world.
Over at the Book of the Great Queen campaign on IndieGoGo, after we met our first two stretch goals, I asked people for suggestions on further project goals. Many people wrote to me suggesting a book tour after publication. So I’ve set book tour funding as the target for my final stretch goal, and I’m also soliciting feedback on locations and venues for talks/workshops/booksigning events.
The good news is that as of today, we’ve already raised enough to do two cities and just on the verge of a third. That means the book tour is already happening! You, my readers, still get to decide how extensive it will be and where I travel.
I’ll be planning my tour sites based on where there seems to be the most active interest, so if you want me to visit your city, drop me a line to let me know! So far I’ve heard from folks in Seattle, Atlanta, Houston, Madison, and upstate New York. Where would you like to see me travel to? I’d also love to hear from people as to good venues in your area for a workshop and booksigning, or if there are events such as festivals or conventions you’d like to suggest as part of the tour. You can email me your suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment here.
You can see all the details and updates on fundraising levels over at the IndieGoGo page. I’ll also be posting updates there as tour locations are identified.
Now, back to focusing on the book!
