Many of you know that Ben Wolverton, son of bestselling author David Farland (and one of our main Superstars instructors) in the hospital after a severe head injury, and Dave has decided that he won’t be able to teach at Superstars this year; Ben’s condition is just too much up in the air and he wants to focus his energies where they need to be. In the meantime, if you want to help Ben, there’s another book bomb set for this Saturday, May 4, Star Wars Day.

A few years ago, I went on an extensive national book-signing tour for my novel Ai! Pedrito!—the tour in which I set the Guinness World Record for the “largest single-author book signing.” We hit 27 cities in 28 days—and I remember my neighbor grinning when I told her about the upcoming trip. “Oh, how glamorous it must be! 27 cities in 28 days!”
You can always identify the people who don’t travel often….
Just because I came home from my HELLHOLE AWAKENING tour didn’t mean that the signings stopped. We came home from RavenCon in Richmond VA by about midnight Sunday, and by then my cold and laryngitis had gotten even worse, and now my eyes were very red (with the raspy voice and the bloodshot eyes, I had a real “demonic” thing going). First thing Monday morning I went to see the doctor, who prescribed antibiotics as well as eyedrops to get rid of conjunctivitis (and he told me to rest, but alas that wasn’t going to happen). I had a Colorado Springs signing the following night.
