My US Tour

So, in May an awesome book is coming out. (I do not mean mine. Though I hope you will like that too!)

It is Holly Black's White Cat, the story of a world in which magic is real and has been outlawed since Prohibition, making all magic users outlaws and most outlaws magic users. Its star is Cassel, a boy from a family of workers who is trying to go straight. He is hindered in that by his jailed mother, his mobster brother, his other and kind of more evil law student brother, and that one time he killed the girl he loved. It is funny, sharp magical noir, and I love it: when I was told I was touring with Holly Black I started screaming with delight. Thank you, S&S, for choosing such an awesome tour partner for me!

Here is where we will be going.

Oh man! I am off from school but alas, I do not have the funds to be heading over to the US this summer. I don't suppose you've got a Canada tour coming up anytime soon? ^^

I think only superstar authors get sent to Canada. ;) I think Holly Black and Cassandra Clare are going in the autumn!

I was like, "Oh, Kentucky, that's close enough that I can drive! ... Except that by then I will have started my job but not gained enough time to take a day off. Woe!"

Come to VA on a weekend, you know you want to! XD

Oh my god, the Cincinnati Joseph-Beth! That is one of my two favorite bookstores. (The other is the Blue Manatee, which is not too far from there and is a heavenly font of children's and YA literature. Also coffee.) Two amazing authors in the same room! And at the end of May, when classes are over! Why, I do believe I hear my hometown calling me...


PS: When you are at the Joseph-Beth, make someone bring you a box of Busken's cookies from up the street. I would do it, but by the time I got to the bookstore I would be covered in crumbs and icing and the cookies themselves would be mysteriously absent.

Re: P.S.
Tragically, it might not be. My lovely Japanese publisher, since Twilight is not the big thing it is elsewhere, is moving to much younger books, and my trilogy is currently a bit orphaned. I will always love them for the Lexicon cover, however, and if the situation changes I will announce it!

AAARGH!!! You are circling about my location like a sparkly vulture, but never coming closer than 350 miles or so!

This makes me sad. :-(

Me too - yet I am obscurely delighted to be called a sparkly vulture. ;)

A pity you're not coming to upstate New York with Holly to participate in the Greater Rochester Teen Book Festival on May 15! (Or, rather, maybe not a pity, as it's looking more and more likely that I will be out of town that weekend, and I would have been greatly saddened to miss you.) Maybe next year (hint, hint)...? :)

A shame indeed, but I have a launch event in Dublin. ;) Next year would be kind of awesome, if Talisman is out on time... *plots*

I cannot attend your events, o other Sarah, but I must comment that I LOVE reading your blog because, like many other Sarahs I know, myself more than nominally included, you are always full of surprises!

Gear! For a book reading! They did not cover this in any of my MFA seminars.

*love*

Thank you!

So wait.

You'll be selling your book in Naperville? I really liked that store when I went to see Carrie Ryan in March, but I figured it'd be better to go to the one in Oak Brook since that's when the book comes out. But if there will be books that day, maybe I'll go to Naperville instead...

I can't wait! :D
sarahtales
Apr. 15th, 2010 10:24 am (UTC)
There will be books both days, so whichever place is most convenient for you! Awesome to know it was a nice place when you went to see Carrie, though. Huzzah!
