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!

Come to Wausau Wisconsin! :) I'd love to meet you. I have three boys under 5 that would love to find mischievous things to do with Clay in a bookstore! (I often relate very well to your Clay stories! ;)

You should definitely come to SEATTLE. We'll try to keep the rain away while you're here.

Hi Dawn...not sure what bookstores you are going to do, but I promise if you are in the Mount Prospect area, I personally will fill that store with fans (and maybe bring your a starbucks of your very own!) Looking forward to meeting you and buying your book!

PezzyDB said...

I live in Evanston! So you don't even have to travel far from home.

Will you be giving a talk, also? That will be fun. Hey, come to my town and I will babysit your kids for you. Or, actually, my husband will; because I will be at the bookstore enjoying the show.

Audrey said...

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma! Woohoo!

Denise... said...

Salem, Oregon. Pretty please.

Smiller said...

Phoenix, AZ

How about Berean Christian Store near Arrowhead Mall (that's on the west side of Phoenix)? Or, there is a Barnes and Noble at the Metro Center Mall.

If I come out for your autograph, I want the kid's too. I'll bring my 2 & 4 year old to play with yours.

Peggy said...

I would LOVE to meet you! So please, please come to Fort Collins, CO......I would even be willing to go to Denver if you couldn't make it north.

Patti said...

Yah!!! Media, PA....outside of Philly. We will come out and support you.

Jennifer said...

I'll be near Lakeland, FL by the time your blog tour comes along. And I'll come visit you. And I'll bring my kid too.

Denver, please! Or one of its lovely suburbs.

Come to Kansas City...we all know you here!!

If you can wait to visit here until February or March, then do so -- Spring Break! The weather her stinks in August and most people are off on vacation to cool loactions.

Any chance you could come to Mississippi?

Hi Dawn
I've enjoyed your blog for ages now, and haven't worried you with comment s(figured you had enough). I did enjoy sending you postcard info etc and am responding to your book tour itinerary plan question. I don't suppose you'd pop over to Sydney, Australa? Melanie

Erin said...

Come to South Carolina! I live in Spartanburg but Greenville is only 30 minutes away. :)

Traci said...

I will buy your book! Definitely!
But I live here in CA. And I'm just one person, so if you have more CA followers than me, then hey why not come out here!

Do we have a release date??

WendyLou said...

Oooh!! Oooh!! ::Waving my hand like a lunatic:: Please come to Memphis, TN!!

Come on out to Modesto, California, I'd come by and see ya!! Congratulations!!

Aly said...

Hi Dawn. I'm an admitted blog stalker and decided it was about time I actually comment. I live in Sandy, Utah and I, for one, would definitely buy your book and love to have you personally sign it!!! Your stories are like my own - I am a 35 year old with 4 young kids and I totally empathize with you. I love that you portray motherhood as it actually is - pure craziness and not always a bowl of cherries! Keep it coming. Oh, and when and where can I buy your book???

Anonymous said...

Kansas City, or close enough to it! And I'll come! And I'll buy a book! Of course, I'm a sure bet to buy your book anyway, so maybe my vote doesn't hold as much weight. Maybe you want to hit the more delegate-heavy states. :) But there's a little contingent of blog readers down here that love you!

Steve said...

Albert Lea, MN.

About a hundred miles due south of where you just were.

Go too far and you'll wander into Iowa. Be sure to have your passport ready.

Let Them Be Little said...

Oh pretty please come to the Salt Lake City area! I would love to meet you and have you sign a book for me.

Katrina said...

Let me know when you go international

K. said...

Seattle! Come visit us here in August when the weather is wonderful!

Of course, my first baby is due 8/14 so I'll probably have to send my husband to the book signing. Be gentle with him - he's a newby to the parent thing too and we are valiently trying to hold on to our delusions that our child will be perfect. :)

Sila Lumenn said...

We don't have a large bookstore like Barnes and Noble or Borders, so you probably won't be coming to my town, but just in case, I live in Sherman, Texas. How about coming to Dallas? I would love to drive the 60 miles to see you. And I promise to not only buy a copy of your book and get you to sign it, I'll listen to you talk about anything you want!

Ann said...

Flower Mound, Texas....a burb of DFW! Can't wait to see if you come near here.

Erin Q said...

YAY! I would love for you to come to a store near me. But I live in RURAL West Virginia so I don't know how close you can get. I live in a little town called Elkins. I'm 3 hours south of Pittsburgh. Anyway, if you come someplace close enough to me, I will absolutely come and have you sign things. You make my day. Thanks Dawn!

Wendi said...

I've been reading your blog for several months now. However, I've never left a comment because you always have SO MANY of them--and I never wanted to increase your workload by having to answer a question or whatever. But I absolutely LOVE your blog. Reading your posts is one of the highlights of my day. (I do free advertising for your blog on my blog all the time. I'm always raving about different posts and telling people to go read them.) I can't wait to buy your book. (I love the cover, by the way.) It will be my Christmas present to myself. :) And the description of your kids' potential behavior in this post was hilarious--my almost 12-year-old daughter would be begging for a cell phone as well. (Because that is her mantra these days.)

Anyway, I live in Orem, Utah. It's about an hour south of Salt Lake City. I highly doubt you'll be out this way--but if you are, I'll be the first one in line. :)

P.S. I've always wondered how you cross out the text of what you're really thinking and then write the politically/socially correct thing after it. Do you have to have some special writer's program or something??? Do tell.

Not far from you in Machesney Park,IL
but the book stores are located In Rockford, Il.

This is so exciting.August will be here so fast. This has to be a dream come true for you. I have problems sending an email. Writing a book would take years. I will be waiting in line if they would choose a store near me.

Dawn,

You know you have to come to St. Louis and meet the kids and Mike! I'd love to finally meet you in person. If it's on a weekend, I'd be thrilled to show you the town, maybe hit the Zoo and the Arch? Holler back at me and let me know if St. Louis is on your list.

(((hugs)))

Please come to Hoffman Estates, Illinois!!! If not there, I'm willing to travel up to 30 miles. I know, I'm putting the cost of gas over the excitement of having you sign a book for me.

I'm on the southside of Chicago - the nearest bookstore to me is in Matteson, but Orland Park would be good too. I'd love to come see you and grab a book.

Jennifer said...

Hi Dawn,

Sitting there all by yourself is SO not going to happen to you. If you're looking for a guaranteed audience, come to Longmont Colorado. WAY off the beaten path, I know, but hey, if you make it this way, I'll come out to meet you!

I have never posted before, but I had to this time - PLEASE, PLEASE come to Greensboro, NC (or some where relatively close to Greensboro). I promise I'll be at whatever book store - with your book in hand waiting to meet you in person and have you sign a copy of your book!
Just to let you know I really enjoy your blog and cannot wait to get your book. I signed up for Amazon to notify me when your book becomes available.
Thank you for sharing your (and your family's) life stories with us....it helps me get through the crazy days with my 4 kiddos (4 year old twin boys; 3 year old son & 1 year old daughter).

I live in Phoenix, I'd come!

Morrighan said...

You could come to Oklahoma City... Or Tulsa... Either one is about an hour and a half from me... I'd say come to Enid, but lacking a good bookstore it would be difficult... plus I think you'd have a better chance of rounding up more fans than just me if you were in a bigger city...

Kara said...

If you came here I would definitely come see you! I live near Salt Lake City, UT.

Try Vroman's main store in Pasadena, California. They really stand behing author signings!

You can try Vroman's Bookstore (main store) in Pasadena, California. They do an excellent job in promoting new authors and in getting people to a signing!

Margaret said...

Hi Dawn, I don't post often but read your blog daily. I finally created an account so I don't have to post as "Anonymous".

You are an inspiration and a big help since I became a part-time stepmother to 3 boys.

You've made me laugh at similar experiences (Q-tips in the nose). You've helped me take a breath and remember that when they run around screaming and trying to brain each other with whatever they can grab that it's "ok". :o) I can't speak yet of when they try to "blow stuff up" but their dad wants to build model rockets with them this summer. Maybe I should say I have FOUR little boys.

PLEASE COME TO CANADA!!

I'm in Winnipeg, Manitoba (but can get to Grand Forks or Fargo North Dakota).

Thank you and I can't wait for your book. I'll buy one - even if I can't get it signed

Mum-me said...

A book tour! How exciting! .... then I read the bit about having all six children with you. Well, that will be an experience. I avoid taking my six anywhere I don't have to - but with my hubby away for 3 months it means I have to take them everywhere!

I don't suppose you are coming all the way to Canberra - but I'd bring the whole clan along to have my book signed if you did!

Holly Maudsley said...

Hi Dawn,
Come to Vromann's bookstore in Pasadena, CA! You could use the map data from Austin's project as a starting point too. I'm in Winnetka, CA (part of the San Fernando Valley), just north of Los Angeles. Come on out, and I'll motivate a whole group of moms to come see you!
Thanks,
Holly

Donna said...

I'm near Kansas City, Missouri. But I doubt I can help you, because I don't drive. Unless the timing is right for me to force my husband to take me. (He works 2:30 PM to midnight.)

darling said...

Oh, that's exciting! I always intend to go to things like book signings and local presentations, but I seem to never find the time or else I forget.

I live in Seattle and if you happen to make it out here I will put it on my schedule and hopefully actually make it to come see you.

Oh, come to St. George, Utah. (Never heard of it?) It is about 110 miles NE of Vegas and 300 miles S of Salt Lake. I just want to hear that you might be coming close enough for me to make the trip and meet a celebrity. Hooray for you.

If you come to the Detroit, Michigan area, I'll be there and I'll spread the word. Specifically, come to the Borders Books in Canton, MI. You kids and my son could all go to the park in the neighborhood behind Borders.

I have a better idea. Have your signing at this place called Jungle Java (junglejavaplay.com). There will be a ton of parents, mostly moms and there is a giant indoor play structure your kids can climb. No books to buy or destroy. There is a coffee bar but they have kid friendly stuff too!!!

Please, please come to my area.

Another vote here for the Kansas City area. I would come wherever you end up, but consider the Kansas side - Overland Park specifically. Tons of families here. Also - a great little kids book store here is called the Reading Reptile. They do an annual children's book festival that draws a lot of big name children's authors. They would be a fun place to do a book signing. You'd have a family audience built in!

The Lehigh Valley in PA will welcome you and your children. Growing up with 4 younger brothers, I can understand how it is for you. Good luck with the book and tour.

Please come to Indianapolis!!! We have lots of Borders and Barnes and Noble bookstores on the north side. I could bring all the moms from my triplets (and more) group! The Indiana State Fair is also in August and they also have family day!

Julia & Brad said...

Longmont, CO but anywhere in the area will work! Boulder, Denver, etc. I would love to meet you! I'll bring friends! :-)

Lisa said...

Sacramento, California. But if you are within a couple hours drive time and it fits the stinkin schedule, I'd make the drive to keep you from twiddling your thumbs. OK. I lied. I'd make the drive to watch your kids trash a Barnes & Noble.... LOL!

mytotalchaos said...

Oh PLEASE come to Des Moines, IA! We could definetly fill the place up! I have so many friends that would come and I know there are others out there too. Maybe it will be state fair time and you could stop by there- a great time for sure! :)

Sue said...

Cape Cod, Massachusetts! At least you will have me at your signing! I would even volunteer to take your kids to the beach, while you signed other's books.

Laura said...

Dawn. I saw someone else asked you to come to Vancouver Canada. And I have to second that motion! Otherwise I too, will be driving down to Seattle, if you go there. Have fun planning your tour!

Anonymous said...

Dawn, Please come to St. Louis. It's close enough that you could send the kids home on the bus if needed! Just Kidding! I'd love to meet you, you have kept me in stitches for months.

Julie said...

How about Flint, MI? We have a Borders & a Barnes & Noble....our Barnes and Noble even has a Starbucks in it!! LOL

Ok I live in Sidney NY...however the bookstore that is a biggie is in Vestal NY( about 35-40 minutes from me)It is a BARNES and NOBLE. There is also one in Oneonta NY that is near me....but I would go for the vestal one it is big, attracts lots of folks, and I could come meet you and bring MY crazy crew of 4 ( 4,3,2, and newborn if it is held at the end of August) one of whom is also ADHD...It would be a grand time!

Simply Lovely Gifts said...

Allen, TX, so could do Frisco, McKinney, or Plano :-)

I live in St.Charles, Missouri. Just on the out skirts of St. Louis. With one of the highways shut down it will make more since to have a signing in St. Louis and one in St. Peters mall (mid-Rivers) at Boarders that way no one will be stuck in traffic. It's bad The traffic. I hope you enjoy our City lots of free things for your kids to enjoy. Maybe dad can take them. Hint Hint. Susan

I'm from Ithaca, NY (home of Cornell University) but I would happily come to Rochester, Buffalo, NYC or Boston if you give us enough notice.

Cincinnati, Ohio!! :-D I'd be there in a heartbeat!

Hello Dawn,
I have been a silent reader up untill now, but I noticed another poster mentioning my area, so I just had to speak up:-) Please please please make a stop out at Vestal NY!!

Lynn said...

If you come to Clarksville, TN (or even Nashville) I will be there. Since my husband is deployed, I'll be forced to bring my four kids with me. That's 5 people right there! =)

Aubrey said...

Please, please, please come to Salt Lake City. I'll probably get shy or chicken out, but I'd love to meet you and I'll bring my husband so you can talk him out of having six kids.
Hey--maybe some of the polygamists will show up with ALL their kids and then you'd have a ton of books to sell.

Aly said...

Please, please, PLEASE come to Georgia! Gwinnett, County (NE Suburb of Atlanta,) if possible. Heck, I'll even bring all 6 kids home to play with my 2 while the book signing is going on, if you'll have a glass of wine or coffee with me and sign my book.

Yes, Georgia MUST be on your list. We even have a marvelous Barnes & Noble in Lawrenceville or a Borders in Snellville.

I'll beg if I have to. Don't make me.

:)

Jenn said...

Baltimore! I'll even make a tampon centerpiece for you.

Ted & Laura said...

Chicago proper checking in. North side. I'll bring people, you know..."people." :D

Amy said...

Jackson/Clinton, Mississippi
Would love to come see you. I want your book..May not be able to read in public--might get strange looks from laughing out loud. If it is as funny as your blog!! You make my day....

speedycyn said...

Dawn,
I have been a lurker since September, until now! I hope you can come to Southern California this summer. Riverside, Ontario, San Bernardino, Anaheim (Disneyland), are all great locations I could make it to, plus there are fun things to do with the kids!

Sherry said...

Southside of Indianapolis!!

Franzi said...

wow, now that gave u some comments!

Europe...Germany to be more precise so if that's an option -> come visit me!

as for the bookstores...do they know what they are getting into?? hehe..

mamatwoboys said...

I am moving to the DFW area in June. I am certain there are some big bookstores in the Dallas area that would love to have you warm the hot seat.

Will you travel by bus on this tour, Like a Rock Star!?!?

Good luck!

Aly said...

Oh, I forgot to mention that I'm a past-president (and founder) of the MOMS Club of Grayson. MOMS Club chapters number about 68 in the metro Atlanta area... it's a support group for stay-at-home-moms. You've probably heard of it, but the acronym stands for Moms Offering Moms Support. There are over 1600 chapters in the US. They're in Canada and many other countries too. MOMS Clubs members alone would pack every single signing and keep you there until your poor signing hand went numb - and we'd help entertain the kiddos too!

Remember... NE Atlanta (Gwinnett Co.)

kayla said...

salt lake city would LOVE you. i promise. :)

Allison said...

Come to the grand state of NC - I'm in the triangle which is defined as Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill. Durham would be best...but I'm willing to drive for ya. :)

Kyddryn said...

Atlanta, or even better, a bookstore near the Mall of Georgia. I can't promise any interesting centerpieces, arts and crafts, or that I'll have the Evil Genius, but I'll buy a book anyway. :-)

Shade and Sweetwater,
K

Lisa-Anne said...

SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA!!!!!!
PLEASE! :)
I'll even entertain the children in the bookstore... I used to be a summer camp counselor! ;)

LuAnn said...

KANSAS - an added bonus to the 'Reading Reptile' recommended above - there are establishments nearby to procure refreshing libations after a hard day of signing.
