2006-2007 Tours

March 6th, 2006

Check below for my 2006-2007 tour dates and locales:

Ha, I bet you thought I was going to talk about the Oscars! Well, I'm not. Except to say that I loved Jon Stewart. Also that I did not see a single one of the movies that were up for Best Picture. Oh, well. I have stopped watching Gilmore Girls, too. I just can't take it anymore. Luke would never act that dumb.

On an unrelated note, I find this intriguing. If it wasn't the peanut butter kiss that killed her, what WAS it?

Anyway, yes, it's true…I have a book coming out at the end of this mouth (Princess Diaries 7, PARTY PRINCESS, due out in the US on March 28). But I'm not going on tour for it!

Instead, I'm going on tour for my May release, QUEEN OF BABBLE. Oh, and also I am going on another US tour in September 2006, and will be going to France and Germany for tour in March 2007!

But more on those tours closer to September 2006 and March 2007.

Just because I'm touring for QUEEN OF BABBLE does not mean, if you come to see my at any of the events listed below, that I will not happily sign copies of Princess Diaries 7 (or any of my other books you purchase at these events)! All it means is that I am saving my touring energy for the events below, which I am posting now so that people can start saving the dates. Because there is nothing sadder than an author sitting in an empty bookstore.

So if you live in or near any of the following towns…come see me!

And if I'm not coming to a town near you, please don't blame me. It means no bookstore there invited me! There's still time to ask your local bookseller or librarian to request a visit, since I'll be touring again in September for my new teen stand-alone….

More later.

Much love,

Meg
