The Red Pyramid Tour

Tour dates have been finalized for the Red Pyramid book release in May!

I never know exactly where the publisher will send me on tour, so getting the itinerary is like getting a surprise party. I'm excited to visit so many great places. As always, my apologies if your city is not on the list this time. Remember, I only have two weeks to travel, and it's a very, very big country.

The tour is a nice mix of new places and return visits. I'm always happy to visit my friends in Decatur and Austin, and of course I love wrapping up the tour with a hometown event in San Antonio. It's been quite a while since I got to visit the wonderful folks at Children's Book World in Haverford. All you folks that were asking for a Philadelphia area signing, that's you! And of course, I love the fans in Chicagoland. Hope to see you guys at Anderson's.

My readers in the Dallas/Fort Worth area have been asking me to come up that way for a long time. It's been over three years since I last did a public signing there. The event at the Southlake Barnes & Noble is for you guys. I hope to see you there!

It will be my first visit to Toronto. I've been getting a ton of mail from my Canadian readers for years asking me to come up that way, and finally I get to. I don't have details on which Indigo location we'll be using, but stay tuned for that. It'll also be my first visit to Politics and Prose in Washington, D.C., a store I've heard so much about. I still feel bad about the folks who came to see me in rain at the National Book Festival last fall and didn't make it through the signing line (Honestly, guys, I would have stayed and signed for another two hours, but they wouldn't let me). Hopefully this will be a second chance for you D.C.-area readers to come by and get those books signed. I owe you! I'm also looking forward to my second visit to Minnesota. The Bookcase is near the St. Paul/Minneapolis area, so I hope you fans up there can join us!

Of course, the hardest part of any tour is all the places I can't go. You will notice the West Coast is not on this tour, but we haven't forgotten about you. Remember, I'll be touring again when the new Camp Half-Blood series starts in the fall, so there's a good chance I'll have more events in your part of the country, plus I hope some of the other great places we weren't able to fit in to the May tour. And if you aren't able to make an event, most of the host stores are very happy to take orders for signed books. Contact them before the event, I'll sign the books when I'm there, and the store will ship them to you.

I will post more details as they become available. Keep checking my web calendar for updates.
