Book Tour

So it looks like I'll be doing a book tour right before that most magical time of year (Back to School Time!) come August. I'm a little nervous about this because I'm afraid I'll be sitting at an empty book store, twiddling my thumbs, looking like a loser, and begging anyone who walks in the door to please, please, please let me sign a book for them. It doesn't even have to be my book. Any book will do. Let me just sign something so I don't feel so pathetic. Please.

Meanwhile, my kids (who will be coming on this tour with me) will be running around the store like loonies. Clay and Brooklyn will be playing hide and seek, knocking over displays. Lexi will be drawing in the books and asking me, "How do you spell this?" every minute and a half. Jackson will bring me a stack 249 books with the question, "Can I get these, Mom?" Savannah will be sitting there looking bored and complaining that I won't get her a cell phone of her own and Austin will sneak over to Starbucks, buy some coffee and then, hyped up on caffeine, act even weirder than he already does. Sounds like a fun time, no?

Which brings me to my question. I really, really don't want to sit in an empty store like a dork, so tell me where you live so my publisher can come up with a plan that includes cities of folks who know who I am and who would love an evening out without kids enjoy getting to meet me or hear me speak.

Thank you!

Laurel, Maryland!!!

It's exactly 20 miles south of Baltimore or 20 miles north of Washington DC. Any of those two cities or suburb areas would be great!!! I would so be there!

Hey Dawn..... how about you hook up with the really nice ladies at "Hearts at Home" and get a booth at their conferences! One in Grand Rapids MI (where I will be ;) ), one somewhere else (forget where) and a national one there in IL. They are a wonderful organization and have helped so many moms, just like you have! Check them out online.

Denver/Boulder. You must come...and then you'll never want to leave (evil cackle). ;)

Bloggin' Mama said...

I would totally love it if you came to Colorado Springs, but I can also join in with all the others who said Denver. I'd be willing to make the 1 hr. drive to see you!! Please, please, please come see us in Colorado.

Amy said...

Greetings from sunny Florida!! After your fun vacation here, you know you want to come back!!!! I live in a tiny little town outside of Daytona Beach. You should really really really PLEASE come to the Orlando area for your fans here in the sunshine state!!

Brenda said...

There is no bookstore in my town but if you go to Omaha, NE I would go there!

Lisa said...

We are moving from CA to VA this summer. I would so come to a book signing of yours. We are moving to Stafford Virginia, put it on your tour and I (and everyone I can get to come with me) will be there:0)

Shanana73 said...

Come to Tacoma, or Puyallup Washington and I will definitely be there!!! I can't wait to purchase your book.

Stella said...

okay, you've got requests from the Nasville, TN-area and Birmingham, AL, so please add HUNTSVILLE, ALABAMA to the list (hey, we're right between Nashville and Birmingham, so it's easy-peasy). Kids love the Space and Rocket center and the Botanical Gardens. And everyone needs to spend some time in Alabama during August ;-)

Chris & Sarah said...

Come to Houston (up North please) :)

Kel said...

Temecula, CA! There is a great, big B&N near the mall that would be PERFECT. Please don't make me beg. I will if I have to, though.

Barb said...

Don't forget to add Melbourne, FL (or at least Orlando, FL)!!! I'll be there! Barb

Hey Dawn,

Please, please, please, come to San Antonio, Texas. Austin, Texas is just a short 45 minute drive north of SA but, I'd love to meet you and your kids here in the "Alamo City". I'll bring my 5 kids who are almost identical in age (13, 11, 9, 6, 5)and they can all run around the bookstore together. WooHoo... let's get us all kicked out! Just tell me what day, time and location and I'm there!!

Thanks for continuing to share your wonderful sense of humor!

I'm in the Indianapolis area, too. But I would travel to make it to one of your book signings. I have family in Lombard,IL, so perhaps I could catch you in one of those suburbs nearby. Please post a book tour listing or tell us where we can find one on-line. Best of luck to you, in bringing your 6-pack along.

Katharine said...

Evansville, Indiana!

Denise said...

Donnellson, Iowa!! Well, except we don't have a bookstore here.....closest would be Ft. Madison or Burlington, but Iowa City is only 60 miles north and I would definately travel to come to your book signing! Hopefully not dragging my 9, 7 & 4 yr olds along! Oh, and contrary to what "Steve" posted, you won't really need your passport!! ha
Congrats! and keep up the great work!

Come to PA!!! Specifically, the suburbs of Philadelphia. I saw a Media, PA mentioned above, that sounds good! Or there's a Borders in the Concordville area, that's even closer to me.

It would be SO wonderful to meet you in person and to be able to see the "six pack" that inspired all of this.

Don't worry -- no matter where you go you certainly won't be lonely!!!

Be sure to keep us posted on this!!

I didn't flip through all the comments, but just thought I'd put a plug in for beautiful Boise, Idaho. If you're going to the northwest, we're sorta on the way. I would gladly fill a store with book buyers, so you wouldn't be twiddling your thumbs!

Western Massachusetts, please! I saw a comment from someone in Belchertown and they mentioned the Holyoke or Hadley Barnes and Nobles...but how about some smaller local bookstore north of there...like the Greenfield, MA area? But if not Hadley or Holyoke work, too! Can I bring my 2 high energy boys to the signing? They can run around with your kids and you won't have to feel like yours are the only kids being crazy :)!

Lori said...

I live in Port Huron, MI. We have a Barnes & Nobles in neighboring Fort Gratiot, MI. Added bonus, we are a border city with Sarnia Canada, so you can do a bit of international travel, too, if you like!

Kim said...

I've got three locations for you to choose.
Richmond VA, Chapel Hill, NC or Charlotte NC.

Just don't do them back to back.

SPOKANE, WA PLEASE! i would totally come see you! I have lots of people that i would drag along with me. That didn't sound nice, I wouldn't have to drag them, they would want to come on their own, no dragging involved...except for my 5 year old, who would love to help your children destroy a bookstore. You have to go to Aunties Bookstore though, your kids would actually love it there. It's a great place for kids.

Can you come to Mentor, Ohio or there abouts? I'd definitely come see you then. Theres a Borders near the mall, and a book store called Half Price Books (which is where I shop for books) thats off of Hiesly Road.

Yeah that helps, right?

Hope to see you. And if you go to Cleveland or Akron, I'm afraid I won't go, too many cars, freaks me out.

Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base, Oceanside, CA (San Diego Area)

Your publisher should really consider doing a military base tour! We have book signings fairly regularly and they are always crazy packed. Plus, if ever there was a dense population of SAHM's with multiple kids that could relate to and use some of your humor, it is on a military base.

Come to Albany, NY. The Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza hosts many authors for book signings. There are many cool, unique stores in Stuyvesant Plaza, including one that carries Red Thread Confections, which is based in nearby Delmar. Albany has lots of fun family things to do in the summer and fall and it's a short drive to Saratoga Springs and Lake George. I can't wait for your book to come out. I know what I'm giving my sisters and my son's preschool teachers for Christmas. They'll laugh as much as I do when I read your blog. My son is the dark haired version of Clayton, although he got a black eye by accidentally crashing head on into his friend the week before Jackson got a black eye. If you come to Albany, I'll come to your book signing with my 4 year old son wearing a Tazmanian devil shirt and a smile to melt your heart. I'll be the proud single mom with graying hair. I'm not dyeing it. After an 11 month wait for his adoption, I've earned every one.

You simply MUST come to Los Angeles, preferably the northern part - San Fernando Valley, Santa Clarita Valley, Glendale, Pasadena. I'd even drive to Santa Monica, Hollywood, Westwood... Your six kids plus my four will tear the place down LOL! After the signing, y'all can come over for BBQ and swimming - yay!!!

I saw one Omaha, NE, but would like to vote for it again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and how ever many more times it takes for you to come to Omaha. Lincoln would be okay, too, as they are only about an hour apart, and since I live in Douglas, either one is an easy drive for me.

Elissa said...

WOW! This is going to be one heck of a book tour! All I can say is - come to SC! The beaches are great in August! Your kids can hang out by the pool, you can hang out in air conditioned comfort, surrounded by adoring fans. I can meet you (and get a signed book). Everybody wins!

NJ- got to do somewhere in central NJ. Ocean Township would be great. But hey anywhere in the middle would be great. NYC is to far and to crowded so try for someplace like Ocean, Brick, Freehold. That would be great.

Thanks!

How about the big T-Town. Toledo, OH here and I am sure my 3 year old would help in destroying the book store. We have a Barnes & Nobles, and a Borders on Monroe Street. :) Barnes & Nobles would be safest as you don't want the kids to wonder out into the great world of the mall.

I hope your tour makes it my way!!

I've seen a few votes for Oklahoma City, so I'll add my pleas as well. Our zoo was on the 10 Best Family Friendly Zoos List - and we'd love to meet you!

Albuquerque, NM! And I highly doubt you will be sitting anywhere alone looking like a dork. Look how many comments you've already had just to the is post. We all want to meet the lovely Dawn Meehan!

Joy Smith said...

Philadelphia, PA! I would be sure to come see you, and I know a bunch of other people who would too!

Leah said...

I live in the hinterlands of northern New Hampshire, and I'll happily travel to see you if you come to NH!!
:-) CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

Valerie said...

ATLANTA - specifically the Northside in Roswell (zip 30076). That would make my day!

I'm in the western Chicago suburb of Geneva IL but irregardless, I have a (proposition) strike that - make it an offer - for you. To spare you any potential discomfort of hauntingly empty bookstores (although I very much doubt that) I would be willing (for a generous renumeration to be negotiated) to travel along with you on your tour and perform as your 'broupie' (that's book groupie for you newb's). Yes, I would cheer and fawn and wave book and pen at you, for the right price I would even shed a hysterical fanatical tear or two. Anything to make you feel like an adored author. Oh wait, you already ARE. Hmmm, lucky gal!

Anywhere near Cleveland, OH!

Oh, Oh!!! Come to the King of Prussia, PA Borders....while not in the Mall of America it is the second largest mall in america :) Also, about 25 miles outside of Philadelphia. What more could you ask for!

Minneapolis, please!!!

I live in Wisconsin Rapids, WI. It's about 15 miles off of the geographical center of the state. So if you can only do ONE date in Wisconsin, what better place than the very heart of the state! I see that you've gotten invites from Wausau, and Appleton, which are both between an hour and 90 minutes away... they can SURELY make the trip to see you! Ok, I realize that those two places have a FAR better chance of seeing you than I do, so I'll drive there, but it would sure be cool to have a big celebrity come to Rapids! I mean, Patrick Swayze came here to have his knee operated on a couple years ago, but we didn't hear about that until he was already back on the plane leaving the airport. It'd be nice to have a REAL celebrity come and actually TALK to us!

You are an incredible inspiration to me, Dawn. Your faith and humorous outlook when your kids are being turds truly inspires me to try not to kill mine when he's acting like that... most days it works.

Jacksonville, FL wants you! But we want you on the beaches, not in downtown. ;)
