The Great 2013 Southwest Publishing Workshop and Book Signing Tour

Our Fleetwood RV, ready to be loaded up!

Our Fleetwood RV, ready to be loaded up!

This summer I’d like to do a little “giving back” while we try to see a bit more of this great country of ours. From early June through mid-July we’ll be on the road touring the Southwest, and it’s my hope to meet with groups of authors to pass on what I can about how I’ve made it this far in the self-publishing biz, as well as getting together with some of the great fans who’ve helped me get here.

Come 8 June, we’ll be heading out in our RV, coming to a city that I hope will be near you! My plan at this point is to contact some of the author groups in cities we’ll be passing through to set up some self-publishing seminars (note: these will be FREE), and to see if there are some local bookshops or other venues where fans might like to get together for a book signing, belt out a few bawdy songs, and walk away with some free goodies, too.

So if you have any ideas or suggestions, please comment on this page or email me directly.

While nothing’s carved in stone yet, although the departure and return dates are pretty well fixed, here’s what our itinerary is looking like. So if you’re in or near one of these towns on the dates we’ll be passing through, let me know and we’ll see if we can set something up! Note that the dates given are our arrival-departure dates for each location…
