BOOK TOUR

When we’re writing, the idea that an actual book will come out seems like some kind of crazy dream. Even when we type, “The End,” and collapse in a heap, it only seems marginally real. Yes, then you get cover art and a publication date and your heart starts to flutter. And now we’ve got our first book tour dates! That means the count down has officially started and Gotta Keep on Tryin’ is preparing to launch.

We’re excited to be starting on the West Coast. We haven’t visited our readers in California in several books, so we have catching up to do. And we’ve never been to South Carolina, so Columbia, here we come!

We know it’s early—January is still a few months away. But here are our tour dates so far.

The info is sketchy, with some times and locations to come, but this is a start. Book clubs, we’d love to see you. By all means let us know you’re coming—because we’ll have presents for you! We are really excited for you to catch up with Pat, Gayle and Marcus, and we’ve got plenty of other news to share too. We want to make this a cross country happening!
