Where I Will Be

We're starting to put together some plans for promoting Mom's Cancer early next year, including a multi-city book tour at some point. Right now I have just two firm dates:

New York Comic-Con, February 24-26, 2006, New York City. This will be my book's big coming-out party. Abrams is hosting a booth at which I'll spend some time signing, and we'll also take the opportunity to meet some booksellers and media people.

Comic-Con International, July 20-23, 2006, San Diego, Calif. These are the nice people who gave me an Eisner Award last July. I've been invited to take part in a spotlight panel and I'm sure I'll sign some books.

I've started a page on my main website where I'll post events and appearances as my schedule fills in. Right now, the list of cities involved in my multi-city tour is a mystery. As excited as I am to have my book coming out soon, this is a fairly daunting and intimidating prospect. It's all new to me (aw, poor baby). Still, I'm grateful that Abrams is so dedicated to promoting Mom's Cancer; I realize how unusual it is to receive such support. Luckily, I've got a few months to practice becoming witty and charming. I'll need it.

You'll be coming to Fredericton, New Brunswick right? Right?

No? Moncton, maybe?


Shediac, home of the world's largest lobster?

ronnie (kidding, just kidding, but if you do have any Canadian dates east of Manitoba, don't be surprised if Husband and I drop in)

Ronnie, I would LOVE to visit your part of the world sometime. And I love lobster.

I've actually already spoken up to encourage a stop in Toronto, which may be as close as I can hope to get for an official visit. That's still a long way from you... perhaps we can arrange something unofficial someday.

YES!!! Toronto, baby!! How 'bout the Paradise Comics Toronto Comicon, April 28th - 30th, 2006!

If you come, I'll buy you dinner, sweetie!

Patricia, Thanks for the link, I just forwarded it to my editor. I'd cross a continent for a free meal. Why do you think I mentioned Toronto in the first place? I hope your cold is better, and my best to you and Guy.

Makes sense to me. I'd pay for a cruise for free lobster.
