I’m more than halfway through the book tour for Atlantis Lost – and what an adventure it has been! I’ve been to 6 cities in 5 states and have been thrilled to meet so many of you and sign your books. And I’ve had some fun experiences along the way, too: I did a Writers’ Workshop at the Book Stall in Winnetka, IL, and I went Live on Facebook for the very first time from that event as well as from the event the following day at Anderson’s in Naperville. If you want to check out those two videos, you can find them on my Facebook page or follow these links: Winnetka Event or Naperville Event.

I still have a handful of events to go, and I would love to see you! Meeting you, my readers, helps to keep me going while I’m on the road and away from my family.

Here are a few highlights from the tour so far:

In many of the cities I visit, I also get to make a stop at a local school. I love the chance to meet students and see what’s happening in schools across the country.

And, of course, I really enjoy my bookstore events. I usually do a short presentation and then sign books. I’ll sign any of my books, whether it’s a new edition or old!

My first book signing was at the Reading Bug in California. Here I am with a fan who grew up reading the Merlin Saga.

I love when entire families come out to my events, like this one at the Country Bookshelf.
