Hey, Houston! I’ll be at Brazos Bookstore tonight at 7PM with my new novel Bookpeople and then a benefit for EFF-Austin, and then I’m heading north to New Hampshire where I’ll be at RiverRun Books and the Liberty Forum. And there’s still many more cities!

Hey, New Orleans! At this very moment, I’m flying your way for an event tonight at Octavia Books at 6PM. Tomorrow, I’ll be in Houston, and then to Austin for a bookstore event and a benefit for EFF-Austin. I’m not done, either: there’s plenty more cities left! Come on down and say hi!
After nearly two weeks on the road, I’ve finally resolved the niggling technical issues I was having with the free, CC-licensed electronic edition of Homeland. Many, many thanks to Nat Torkington and Ralph Amissah for their invaluable assistance. You can download and share the free ebooks from the official Homeland site. Go nuts!

Hey, Decatur! I’m coming to town today on the tour for my new novel, Homeland; I’ll be at the Decatur Library at 7PM. Then, on Monday I’ll be in Oxford, MS, followed by Memphis on Tuesday. There’s many more cities to go!
Hey, Chapel Hill! I’m headed your way today on the Homeland tour! I’ll be at Flyleaf Books at 2PM. Tomorrow, I’ll be in Decatur, and Monday it’s a 5PM event at Square Books in Oxford, MS. I’m only halfway through the tour, too! Here’s the rest of the schedule.
