I’d never been to New Orleans, so I wasn’t sure how many readers would be there, but you surprised me with how many roadies there were. It was an almost virgin crowd with only one person who’d been to one of my events before–meaning there were lots of fabulous questions! (Just click photo to go to the higher resolution photo for your own use.)
Two of my more enthusiastic readers.
And the crew at Garden District Books! Thanks, Guys. It was a great event. More photos
I’ll be in Schuler’s Books and Music yet this week on Monday, but if I missed you, and you still want that first-edition, signed The Undead Pool, Nicola’s still has them. I got the news yesterday that we’re in our third printing, so if this is important to you, check the publishing info before you buy, or just order from Nicola’s. I’ll be back in Ann Arbor this week, and can get in there to sign them. [to order from Nicola's]
And we had roadies at Fox Tale Books in Atlanta! Wow, it was a great signing, with people coming from all over the south to get their book signed and ask me a question or two. (Just click the photo to get to the high res version for your own use.)
And Vampy had a surprise as well, with a book signed by a great number of you! Thank you, Vampy. What a sweet idea!
And the crew at Fox Tale Books. Thanks, guys. It was a fabulous signing! Event pictures are up!
Tonight I’m in New Orleans, at Garden District Books. Hope to see some of you there!
Saturday was a beautiful, sunny day in Columbia where I signed at the local BAM. My long-time friend and mentor, Faith Hunter, was there to help me celebrate that number one spot, and she got everyone excited as they waited for me to arrive. There was even cake, and a beautiful card that a great many of the readers signed. It might seem odd, but seeing all those signatures after I spent the afternoon giving you mine–made me feel really good and connected. Thank you.

Me and Faith Hunter. She writes the Jane Yellowrock series, and having the chance to see her on tour was a real treat.
Tonight, I’m at Foxtale books in Atlanta, and I can’t wait!
Quail Ridge Books and Music was a packed house! I loved seeing all the familiar faces, and lots of new ones! lots of roadies to help me celebrate.
If Raleigh is anything, it’s enthusiastic. There were tons of tour Ts from this and previous years, and even a few homemade Hollows shirts which I loved seeing. (Just click the group photo to go to the higher resolution copy to snag for your own use.)
The store itself is wonderful, with staff that know and love books. I left lots of signed stock and even a few Free Vampire Society pins if you’re in the area and missed the signing. I’ve got the rest of the photos at the website, here: [More Photos]
Also, one of the interviews I did while in Cincinnati has been archived and is available to listen to. I do believe I’ve talked to Mark Dewitt on Cover to Cover every year I’ve gone to Cincinnati. Cover to Cover: Kim Harrison discusses the Undead Pool. This is a fairly spoiler free interview.
Today, I’ll be in Columbia, out at Books A Million for my one day-time event. Yay! Hope to see some of you there!
I’m sort of taking a rest day today, though I will be at Quail Ridge Books and Music tonight at 7:30. I hope someone comes out and braves that cold rain, because right now as I’m sitting in my hotel writing this, the wind is shaking the window. Wow! I’ve been to Quail Ridge before, though, and the store is warm and inviting.
Kim and Teresa on CT Style
I’ve had a few links go live in the last few days, the first being the small segment on CT Style I did while in Connecticut. The link should take you right to it, but if not, the segment aired yesterday on CT Style, book lover’s corner. Theresa and Kim chat about the Undead Pool
The event that was recorded by Fireman Creative at the Pittsburg event is up at YouTube as well. You can see it here: Kim Harrison Event at Pittsburgh B&N http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FN2_x7IapsQ
This is what a happy author looks like . . .
And this is my Boston roadies helping me celebrate that The Undead Pool is going to drop into the number one spot on the New York Times bestseller hardcover list next week. (insert happy dance here)
Phew! It was a very good night, not just for me, but my team in New York who was behind the massive promotional effort that started in October. It feels good when everything you do comes together. Magical.
This was the second time I’d been to the Boston Public Library, and it was the best! Lots of familiar faces and people I’d been in contact with on FB.
More Boston pictures
I’m headed to Raleighh today, and will be at Quail Ridge Books tomorrow. See you there!
Today started busy for me with a quick segment at Connecticut Style. It might be airing tomorrow, or maybe it was today, actually, but in any regard, I will give you the link to see it on the internet when it goes up. Here’s a nice shot of me and Teresa, the host.
Update: Here’s a link to the archived segment. CT Style Book lover’s corner Kim Harrison, The Undead Pool
Kim and Teresa on Connecticut Style
But last night it was The Ridgefield Library, and I have to say it was probably my most enthusiastic crowd to date. I might even go so far as to say the most energetic per capita I’ve ever had the good fortune to talk with. I had only two roadies, but that’s not surprising as it’s the first time I’d ever been there. Books on the Common was the bookseller on site, and I left a couple of signed books with them if you’re in the area and missed the event.
The Connecticut ladies! I think these ladies were the reason the crowd was so excited. They were fabulous! Thanks for braving the cold to come see me speak!

Tonight, I’ll be at the Boston Public Library. I’ve been there once before, and I can’t wait to get back.
