Colorado Springs Signing for HELLHOLE AWAKENING

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.

RavenCon in Richmond VA

After half a day at home, from Dayton OH on my HELLHOLE AWAKENING tour, I flew off with Rebecca to Richmond, VA where were guests of honor at RavenCon.  It was an early morning flight, and an all-day flight (departing 8 AM, arriving 4:30 PM), and I woke up that morning with my full-blown laryngitis returned.  So I sat in the back seat of the car, saying nothing, while Tim drove us to the airport.
I got some DARK BETWEEN THE STARS editing done on the plane flights because I knew I would be busy for the weekend.

Finally got home yesterday from Dayton and the end of the main leg of my HELLHOLE AWAKENING book tour.  Very tired, a little under the weather from the persistent laryngitis, but I had all of 14 hours at home to reacquaint myself with the cats, and with Rebecca, with the jacuzzi tub, my own bed…and of course the washer and dryer to do my clothes and repack the suitcase.

Sitting in the Dulles airport right now, on our way to Richmond VA for Ravencon all weekend.

My Tor publicist had scheduled me for a noontime TV interview on “Living Dayton,” so we rebooked my Tuesday morning flight from Atlanta on a much earlier (groan!) flight, so I could get into Dayton in time.

HELLHOLE AWAKENING—Seattle, Norwescon, and Atlanta

Normally, I wouldn’t consider working the weekend as a guest speaker and panelist at a major science fiction convention to be the RELAXING part of the tour, but it was great just to stay in one place for a couple of days, unpack my suitcase, sleep in the same bed. On Saturday I had a worldbuilding panel with Ken Scholes, Brenda Carr, and Stephen Gillette, an autographing, a panel on Sail to Success, Superstars, and other high-end writers workshops with Arc Manor publisher Shahid Mahmud, Nancy Kress, and Jack Skellingstad, a panel on marketing for people who don’t like marketing.

A Birthday Signing in Dallas

March 27, the second day of my HELLHOLE AWAKENING book tour, was my birthday, and I celebrated it in Dallas with a terrific signing at a Barnes & Noble. I flew in from San Diego, then arranged to meet some friends as well as a large group of 501st Legion members for dinner at the Cheesecake Factory adjacent to the bookstore.  Total of 27 people at the dinner—which included cards and a North Texas Squad t-shirt and patch, and a cheesecake with candles, before the group rushed over to the back room of the store to suit up for the talk.
