Upcoming Appearances

I finally have enough book events (i.e., more than one) to put out a tentative schedule:

June 15 - I will be in Davenport, Iowa for Quad Cities Bicycle Week. I'll get to meet Bob Morgan, author of Biking Iowa, in person (we've been corresponding by e-mail for some time since we are both on the bicycle touring e-mail list). We'll be signing books at noon and in the evening -- click here for details.

July 20 - My local book store, The Book Cellar, will be having a sports-themed local author night. Someone else who lives on my street has written a book about golf, and another author has some kind of adventure book.

That leaves my entire month of May open, if anyone has any ideas!

In other book news, my hometown newspaper, the Oswego Ledger-Sentinel, is interested in doing a story. I e-mailed them and got a response from John Etheredge. I mention this because I have been reading newspaper stories by Etheredge since I was an aspiring journalist in high school. Needless to say, he's been with the paper for a long time. Does anyone know whether the Champaign News-Gazette has run their story about my book yet?
