    So, the book launch is just over six weeks away (HOLY FUCKING SHIT, HOW DID THIS HAPPEN???) and I'm trying to map out book tour stops. My budget is extremely limited, so, unfortunately, I won't get to a ton of places. BUT, I will get to a few. 

    Definitely on my list: 

    Boston, TBD, 
    Virginia (Falls Church? Tysons?)
    Chicago, May 1
    Austin May 20 (I think)
    Bethesda, MD book fair on April 21
    Gaithersburg, MD book fair May 18

    Up in the air: LA, maybe Seattle and maybe another stop... 

    So, what I want to know is what's easiest for you guys to get to. The map is outdated and I don't want to depend on that, so just tell me where you could get to, if you'd be willing to make the schlepp. I want to see as many of you guys as possible. 

    Like for LA, Hug for VA, OMG... Oh, wait, shit. ;)

    I'm trying right now to talk Dh into taking me to Boston to see you.  We are in Providence.  He's asking the wheres and the whens and I told him I'd get back to him.

    I am in MI, but will absolutely make the drive to Chicago to see you. I am looking for hotels as we speak. Maybe I can get some of the other MI moms to join me? @purpleflowers, you can drive to my house, and we can pick up @blessie on the way. I don't know if @katotonic is still on? We can get her, too. Any other Mi moms that want to carpool?

    We DISCUSSED this @scarymommy you're coming to Utah so you can see your BFF and doing a book stop at the same time. It pays for itself! Geez ;)

    (I'm sure @tottycakes , @matt115 (with some bribery) and I would all go somewhere in the Salt Lake Valley to see you :) )  Plus again.. YOUR BFF IS IN PARK CITY!

    I missed you in Rhode Island last time, so get that Boston date determined. I need to know what day to take off of work.

    Umm @MegSue may hump your leg... but I promise to only lick you.

    ETA: I don't know how your travel schedule is working out... but April 8th would not be a good Boston day. It's Opening Day at Fenway.

    @dolphinlover26 I forgot about Providence - I had a great reading there last time. Will try and tack that on to Boston!

    @eapple I really would love to make it up there - maybe over the summer.

    @katz_meow OK, noted. :)

    @Luvlyssa YES. I'm still working on that one!

    @Megsue I'm holding you to that.

    @WickedDunkieJunkie Definitely later - probably around April 21.

    @lostinthewind My brother is getting married in Seattle - hence the trip. Trying to work a reading in somehow... :)

    @BellaBefana Hmmmmmmm....

    @leopardgirle Because I live here! But, I'll see if I can work on that.

    @beachmommy I'll be in NYC, but my reading there was dismal last year. But, maybe I'll try again!

    Toronto is lovely in the summer! The street meat is a sizzlin and kensigton market is a boomin, two of my favourite things about Toronto.

    @ScaryMommy FL pllllllleeeeeeeeeeze. If you went to GA I might be able to swing that.

    IF DD gets into Brown then Boston might be a possibility for us.

    I wanna see my favorite Scary Mommy *temper tantrum* lol

    And I promise that Team Headacheslayer will take you out for dinner ;)

    @scarymommy - will you be doing a booksigning in NYC?  Or maybe out on Long Island you would get a better response?  Westbury B&N seems to have a lot of readings...

    @scarymommy Texas is ridiculously massive. If you are within Austin city limits, two to three hours away. If you go to Austin, give yourself a day to to wander around. Its so fun. If you like san Francisco, you will love Austin.
