We’ve got one more store to add to the list, right after the midnight release party at Cincinnati. (I’ll have dates and stores for you later this month.) Schulers at Lansing will be hosting on Tuesday night, the 9th. Nicola’s signing in Ann Arbor will be way at the end of the tour with a special costume/reading/party/cake/night-before-Halloween extravaganza. However, that doesn’t mean that those personalized books you ordered from Nicola’s will have to wait until then. I’ll get in before I go out and sign them so they can be shipped right away. They try to get them to you on the publication date.
If you missed the list of cities, I’ve got them here:
My big news is that my local power and light guys worked a miracle yesterday, clearing the tree from the lines, putting in a new pole, and moving the lines they were responsible for. Frankly, I’m impressed. There wasn’t anyway they could have done it faster, and the tree person spent a few extra minutes in his cleanup so as not to damage the tree I’d planted two years ago to take the downed tree’s place. I didn’t expect to need it for another 20 years, though. One of my favorite sayings is the best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time to plant a tree is now. I’ve done enough “now”s to have a few that have moved into “20 years ago.”
So I’m left with the scent of broken limbs, but I’m looking at a new spot of sun in my yard that wasn’t there before. Oh, wow. It’s amazing.
