So, as you may have heard, I have a cookbook coming out (34 days and counting!). Because I want this little volume to be as successful as possible, I’m going to be doing a lot of traveling over the next few months in order to teach classes, sign books, demonstrate good canning technique and generally prove to you that this is an essential edition for home canners.
The days when publishers would send authors out on extensive, expenses-paid book tours are long over. The way I’m making my self-funded tour work is that I’ve scheduled both free events and paid ones in nearly every city I’m visiting. The demos and book signings will all be open to all, while the classes each have a fee. These classes are essential in ensuring that I’m able to cover costs. To that end, I’m asking that you guys help me get the word out. Sign up, tell a friend, post a tweet or write a blog post. Every little bit helps!
Know also that this isn’t the final schedule just yet. I’m still working on setting up classes in Eugene and San Francisco while I’m out on the west coast. For a complete list of my travels this summer, check out the page I’ve devoted to all things cookbook. That page includes the free events and happily, there are plenty of those.
Finally, I’m still working on classes for the east coast. I’m chatting with some nice folks about getting to Troy, NY, Baltimore and even up into Maine. So keep your eyes and ears peeled!
