If you're wondering what an event is like, here is a rough idea (though, sadly, this tour will lack Camaros and Tessas. The rest is applicable). (Also there are many slap happy videos from my tour last year on YouTube).
Like last year, I took a guitar and Sharpie'd all over it, and like last year, I'm going to be giving away this guitar to a reader at the launch event. Here it is (click to see it bigger):
But in case you can't make it to the launch event, I will be giving away things at the other events. Namely, the frames from The Raven Boys trailer, nicely matted. (You can get an idea of the other frames by watching the trailer).
And also some of the frames from The Scorpio Races trailer, which are weird and transparent, as you can see.
Anyway, I am very excited to be getting on the road again and seeing familiar faces and meeting new ones. You can get more details and RSVP on the Facebook event link beneath each event. Come see me? Please?
