After ten days on the road and in the sky for my U.S. Tour, I will have a weekend to kiss my daughter and sort my mail before flying off to the U.K for the second leg of the Daylight Tour. I was planning to have an extra day at home, but there were so many requests from readers for a Manchester stop that the publisher and I agreed to add one at the last minute.
Some of the following are ticketed events (which I assume means you are welcome to bring your own books to be signed), and others are free. Please understand that I don’t control this aspect of things. Regardless, you are encouraged to spend a little money at the hosting bookstores if you can. In today’s age when it is so easy to order things online, we quickly forget what wonderful things like signings, readings and other events, that physical bookstores bring to our communities. Support them now, rather than miss them once they’re gone.
Here are the details:

Appearances to be announced soon!
After SFX Weekender I will be heading back to NYC for a WHOLE WEEK, before beginning the third leg of the tour, which will include several stops in Germany, culminating in the Liepzig Book Fair. Details for that tour will be posted shortly.
For those of you in the UK who will not be able to make one of these events, there is still hope, as I will be back in October for the World Fantasy Convention in Brighton.
I will be doing a handful of other US conventions as well, and am hoping to make it to Australia at some point this year. Other country visits will depend on what invitations/opportunities crop up from local publishers and booksellers. Ideally, I would like to be able to visit every country where I am published, but due to laws of time and physics, that may never be entirely possible.
