50 Indie Bookstore Book Tour

50 Bookstores, 50 Writers, 50 Books

At the events, we’ll read a favorite passage from each other’s book, talk connections, and go from there.

Please check back—I’ll be coming soon to a bookstore in your state!

To celebrate the release of the Tidal Flats paperback on June 14, 2022, the publication of my second novel, Love Like This, on April 4, 2023, and the publication of my third novel, The Art of Her Life, on June 6, 2023, I’ll be going on a book tour, visiting at least one indie bookstore in every state, to talk with you not just about my book but also about the book of a local author also published by a small or indie press.

I want to shout about the wonders of bookstores and the work these dedicated owners and booksellers do for authors and books. I want to raise up small and indie presses to thank them for their hard work in publishing the books of authors they love. And I want to get together with writers and readers, old friends and new ones, in each of the 50 states.

Books connect us. We’ll discover those connections and have a blast and then good stories to tell later. Together, we’ll create something bigger than we are by ourselves.

I want to spend my days reading, writing, and traveling—and in conversations about books that lead to other conversations and other books and other writers and other bookstores…

See you on the road!
