I’ve updated the event’s schedule with the newest information on the individual book store’s signing policies. If there’s nothing listed, then you are welcome to bring in titles purchased from other stores, but it’s always a good idea to check back a day or two before the event just to be sure nothing has changed.

And since I’ve got you here, the Cuyahoga Library, Strongsvill Branch outside of Cleveland, OH. requires you to contact them ahead of time to reserve a spot for the event. They may cap the attendance, so please go to their website Strongsvill Branch and reserve a spot.
Most stores don’t mind if you bring in previously purchased titles, especially if it’s not the new book, but even so, it’s a very good idea to purchase something, anything, while I’m there, even it it’s not my book. The cold fact is that if they don’t make sales while I’m there, they likely won’t ask me back, so please take the time to acknowledge that they have invested a in asking me to visit your area if you are not purchasing A Perfect Blood at the event. It doesn’t have to be my book, but trust me, they keep track of sales. It’s also not a bad idea to call the store and reserve a copy if you don’t pick one up ahead of time. I have occasionally run out.
As far as me and the work this week, I’m not going to be good for much. Fortunately I’ve finished my rewrite of the ms that I’ve been working on, and can now concentrate on, ah, taxes. And promotional stuff. And the last minute stuff that takes over my live before a tour.
But tonight is the first night of the dog show! The Hound, Toy, Non-Sporting and Herding Groups are tonight, so I’ll be looking for a glimpse of my favorite breeds in two groups.
