COPYBOY, the sequel to PAPERBOY, is launching across the state of Tennessee in the coming weeks.
Readers in West Tennessee have a chance to attend a book talk in Memphis where the story begins; East Tennessee readers can hear about the new book at my author talks in Knoxville or Maryville.
While COPYBOY is available now for pre-ordering online and at bookstores, these three separate in-state launches on Tuesdays are planned:
- Novel Bookstore, Memphis, July 31 at 6 p.m.
- East Tennessee History Center, Knoxville, Aug. 7 at 7 p.m.
- Blount County Library, Maryville, Aug. 14 at 6 p.m.
Novel in Laurelwood Shopping Center is where I launched PAPERBOY on May 14, 2013. I was so green I wasn’t sure of the proper place to autograph a book.
A friend asked me if I enjoyed the process of “selling” books. My answer: “I enjoy people reading my books. I enjoy discussing my books. In order to do those things, books have to be sold.”
For my friends in Middle Tennessee, I will be on the bill at the Southern Festival of Books in Nashville, Oct. 12-14. More about that later.
For someone accustomed to seeing a publication roll off the press every 24 hours, the wait for a new book is exhausting. However, the time is nigh.
Sound the warning horn and start the presses!
