Okay folks, here goes one last post before I drive down to Atlanta this afternoon. Below you’ll find my schedule (the public part of it, at least)…and don’t forget – some of the book vendors [Missing Volume, Larry Smith] should have copies of Maplecroft on sale early. But you’d better grab them fast! I don’t know how many they were able to score; and when they’re gone, they’re gone.
I mean, until Tuesday, when the book officially drops nationwide. But if you want an advance peek at the reading – or if you’d like one signed – here’s your chance!
And for now, I’m outta here.
Wish me luck! It’s going to be one hell of a week…
