North American HTDYF tour winds up (Oz tour begins?)

In just a few days I’ll be back on the road—to Texas—winding up the HTDYF tour. I’ll also be promoting Love is Hell, answering all your questions, finding out what everyone’s fairy is, and converting those who need converting to the glorious ways of zombies.

Tomorrow I’ll be doing an appearance right here in Manhattan with many fantabulous authors. I did my very first YA author appearance at Books of Wonder. Way back in the olden days with Eoin Colfer and Scott. It was incredible. Peter Glassman (Books of Wonder’s proprietor) has been very good to me and Scott in the ensuing years. It’s always a pleasure to do a Books of Wonder event:

    Saturday, 15 November, 12:00PM-2:00PM
    with William Boniface, P.W. Catanese,
    Suzanne Collins, Joanne Dahme,
    Daniel Kirk, Dean Lorey, Amanda Marrone,
    Ketaki Shriram and Robin Wasserman
    Books of Wonder
    18 West 18th Street
    New York, NY

Do please join us! Also if you attend would you do me the favour of asking every author there to declare their allegiance on the zombies versus uni***n front? We have a right to know!

Then next Wednesday I will be in Austin, Texas, city of amazing food and people and music. Yum! This is my only event of the How To Ditch Your Fairy tour that includes Scott. I think we shall have fun. Not least because BookPeople is one of my fave bookshops in the entire US of A:

    Wednesday, 19 November 2008, 7:30PM
    With Scott Westerfeld
    603 N. Lamar
    Austin, Texas

And then my last event of the tour will be in gorgeous San Antonio. Land of great boots and wondrous food:

    Thursday, 20 November 2008, 7:00PM
    Barnes & Noble
    San Antonio, Texas

And thus will end my HTDYF tour.

Or will it?

Stay tuned those of you who live in Sydney and Melbourne and possibly even Perth. There’s a very good chance that in February and March I will be doing a few events at home for my fabulous Australian publisher, Allen & Unwin. Actually the Melbourne event is not a possibility anymore—it’s an actuality! More info as I gets it.

Really looking forward to meeting some more of you in the next few days and weeks! Zombie power!

    I’m SO EXCITED for Wednesday! 😀

    You and Lauren’s blogs have caused me to DREAM that I wrote a book called William Howard Taft, Unicorn. And two sequels. Seriously. I’m on board with zombies.

    And we can’t WAIT to have you at BP. I’ve sold HTYF to many a librarian and, of course, teen girls, so I think we’ll have a fun crowd! I hope you and Scott don’t mind the huge pile of books I’m bringing for your John Hancocks!

    I would read something titled William Howard Taft, Unicorn in an instant, just so you know. Is he the world’s largest unicorn? And president?

    I can’t wait to see ya’ll at BP!

    If you get sent to Brisbane then let us know! I live on the Gold Coast, but I’ve never been to a book signing before – so I’ll definitely be there!

  5. Tim on #

    I agree with Rohan’s pro-Queensland/Brisbane sentiment. If you can’t make it, I’m almost tempted to fly down to Sydney or Melbourne just to attend an event.

  6. Justine on #

    Rohan & Tim: I don’t think Brisbane’s a possibility this time. But who knows? I will go where Allen & Unwin sends me.

    Wow, Tim, that’s dedication! Just thinking about flying down to attend is fabulous of you. Thank you! (Now you don’t have to follow through on it.)

  7. Allison on #

    You must, must go to Amy’s Ice Cream in Austin! Get the Mexican Vanilla ice cream. I’m drooling just thinking about it! Perhaps you could drop some by Dallas for me while you’re at it 😉

  8. Stephanie on #

    Oh, I wish I could make it on Wednesday! I love BookPeople and I’m only about an hour and a half away, but I can’t make the trip this week.

  9. Alex on #

    I live in Melbourne! That possibility/actuality makes me very excited.

    Yes yes yes, please come to perth!!!
    i know we’re at the end of the earth, but it’s such a nice end. being the sydneysider that you are, you wouldn’t know what a beautiful beach looks like 😛 and its not just the quokkas that makes them beautiful.
    in a few weeks i’m going to blog about quokkas in albany (south wa) and the gilbert’s potoroos they co-habitate with. potoroos vie to surpass quokkas in the cuteness stakes. they live a perilous existance, so i think they’re a bit more special.
