You know where I am right now? Sitting in my 1989 VW Vanagon Westfalia in a rocky field on the edge of a suburban construction site somewhere in northern California.
I am driving down the west coast on something I'm calling the Van Fulla Books Tour (#VanFullaBooksTour !) Because, see, my van is fulla books. Galley copies of THE BURNING WORLD, which I'm delivering to bookstores in order to make some kind of human connection to the people who will (hopefully) be selling my new book. Here's me with one of them!
And here's the van in question, the portly princess of the road, Porpoise.
I am going ALL THE WAY DOWN. San Diego and perhaps beyond. I'm making a frantic pace to get to all the stores on my list, but on the way back up, things will be more leisurely, and I may do some fan meetups in which you'll get a chance to receive a very special gift. So stay tuned if you like special gifts and/or me.
Basically, I've poured my entire self into this book, like a poorly chosen horcrux, and if no one reads it, I will fade from existence. So I'm going to do ridiculous things to get it out there. Please join me for the disintegration of my sanity.
