But still, it's end of the road trip part of the tour, and I first of all have to say a huge thanks to you guys. 75% of every audience was people I knew from my blog or Twitter or Facebook, and it was fantastic to be able to meet people have been with me for this entire crazy journey.
I know there were still a lot of blog readers who didn't get to see me at one of my tour stops, and I wanted to do something for folks who couldn't make it to an event. I have some leftover Fun Things from the tour. Namely, these things:
My cool keychains! Made of genuine pleather! If you want one, just take a picture of yourself holding one of my books and send it to me along with a self addressed, stamped envelope, and I'll mail a keychain back to you. I get a smiling face, you get a keychain. Send all those here: P. O. Box 1448, King George, VA 22485. I'll keep sending them out until they're all gone.
Speaking of things that were sent in the mail, I did come home to this in my mail box.
ARE YOU SURE IT'S REALLY MY CAR?
I suppose it is. FINE. But I'll have you know, I never speed.
It's finally starting to sink in that FOREVER is the end of the trilogy and the U.S. tour is all done: 17 tour stops, 2 co-pilots, 238 gallons of gas, 4,000 miles, and one air conditioning condensing coil later. Here's the last video of the tour, with music courtesy of Brad Sucks (huge thanks to Brad -- if you love the song, please find it on iTunes or wherever you buy music!)
