I simply loved the Colorado book tour. My publicist, Marianne, saw to it that we wanted for nothing. She arranged for our stay to be at the luxurious mansion of an artist friend of hers. I’d say, if you’re going on the road, this is the perfect way to do it.
I spoke at the African-American Museum to a lively audience, which always makes it fun. There were book-signings at Barnes and Noble in Boulder and in Denver. The local PBS videoed a TV feature piece about me and The Treason of Mary Louvestre and the local TV station channel 9 had me on live talking about the book as well.
And did I tell you about the food? My goodness. I probably packed on 5 pounds.
Since we’ve been back home I’ve done several talk radio interviews and through them, have been able not only to share The Treason of Mary Louvestre with many listeners but other projects I have ready to launch. Even as I work on the sequel, we are trying to take this novel to film as well as trying to find investors for the one-man show based on Alex Haley’s life, which I recently completed. There are more projects which are just ready to pop.
Coming up on my schedule are the following events:
- Monday, October 7 at 6pm–Books, Bubbles and Brews at the Now Cafe in Las Vegas City Hall, 495 S. Main St.. Other invited authors include former mayor Oscar Goodman, and NY Times best selling authors Vicki Pettersson and Lauren Blakely
- Saturday, October 12, 2pm, Book signing at the West Las Vegas Arts Center Community Gallery, 947 W. Lake Mead Blvd
- Saturday, October 26, 5pm, Book signing at Get Booked Bookstore, 4640 Paradise Rd
I hope to see you at one or more of these events. I’d love to meet you and tell you all about how we escaped Colorado just short hours before the storm that stood this state upside down.
