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.

Friends of the Knox County Library and Union Avenue Books are sponsoring my launch at the beautiful East Tennessee History Center in downtown Knoxville.

The Village Tinker, my favorite retail store in Maryville, is sponsoring the event at the Blount County Public Library.

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!
