A lot of you have been asking me if I have any plans to appear for book signings outside the south. The answer is, No. I do not have any plans to appear outside the south. However, I do have intentions to appear outside the south. It’s obvious I’m picking the low-hanging fruit by hitting the closer venues. It’s easier on the schedule and the budget; the margin for error is greater, and I’m learning a lot as I go. As it stands now, my first trip outside the south will be to New England. I suppose that’s a plan, isn’t it? It’s just that such an undertaking is going to require more complex planning and logistics. I hope to make it happen in late spring or summer. That makes me think of Neal in Bahstawn. Remind me tomorrow to tell you something about Neal in Bahstawn.
