Book tour and Seminar Update!
Aug 28-Monrovia, CA
Sept 4-Brooklynn, NY
Sept 11-Atlanta, GA
Oct 9-Hellerup, Denmark
We will likely have 1-2 more seminars added to the list before the end of the year.
Book signings we have cooking thus far:
Sept 14-Book Release Signing in Ramsey, NJ
Sept 21- Lyon’s Books in Chico, CA
Now here is the general flow: We will wrap up the Sept 11 PSS in Atlanta and then head to Ramsey, NJ for the official book release on Sept 14. We will then bounce around the east coast doing book signings every day until the roof-top release party in Ney York on Sept 18th. We will then fly home, spend a day or two doing laundry and playing with Keystone and then kick off the west coast signings in Chico and then work our way down California. The California chunk of the tour will last until ~ Oct 1. Then we will come home, do laundry (play with the cat) and then head to Denmark.
In all likelihood we will hit the central states, Canada, the UK, Australia and New Zealand early in 2011. We have also had big requests/pre-orders in Japan so we will likely try to hit there at some point.
I will have book signing hours, street addresses and more details in a few days.
How can you guys help?
I’m used to being the “helper” so this is a little tough for me…but I REALLY need ya’alls help. I have some specific ideas that I will throw out later but here are a few for now:
1-Timed purchases. If you want to pre-order the book, try to make the purchase between 6-7PM PST and 6-7AM PST. This can boost the book to the top of Amazon’s ranking which drags it onto the front page. It’s like jumping into a slip-stream and it really ramps up further sales.
2-Multiple purchases. If you are buying more than 1 book (thank you for buying any) if you buy those books in separate purchases it registers each book. If you buy 10 books in one purchase, it only registers as 1 book.
3-Media. If you have contact with local TV, newspaper or radio, help me to get on these mediums. When we release the signing schedule you can see if you are near the locations. If so, and if you have some pull with media, let me know (via the contact page) and we will do our best to get some air-time. My publisher is working on this as well but it’s far more effective if we know someone who knows someone.
Ok, more to follow! Thank you in advance for the help and support!
