... jiggedy jig.
After about two solid weeks on the road, I'm back at home.
I really didn't plan on doing so many signings on this trip. But I seem to have a knack for starting things that I think will be small and having them spiral rapidly out of control.
Still, now I know I can do a reading/signing a day and not burn out. It was actually a lot of fun. In fact, if I hadn't been driving about six hours a day on top of that, it would have been downright relaxing.
The upshot is that it's much more likely I'll try to do a bit of a tour when book two comes out...
All the signings went remarkably well, by which I mean nobody threw anything at me or left the room crying halfway through. We got about a hundred people at each store, (sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less) which really surprised me, as we kinda threw this whole thing together at the last minute. I'm still more than a little baffled by the fact that some people are willing to drive 2-3 hours to come see me read and get their book signed.
What were the signings like? About what you'd expect:

More details in a day or so. Right now I'm still catching up on my sleep and wading through the last of my accumulated e-mail...
