MEET me ON my BETTER THAN NEW BOOK TOUR!
***Update-wow, last week was a lot, NYC, Jersey, St Louis, Kansas City and Chicago- 8 flights, 5 hotels, 5 days, 2 Sharpies all worth it to meet really great people!
Finally! We are hitting the road with books, yes books, in tow. If you haven’t seen me “live,” wear comfy clothes and shoes because I tend to talk a lot. Looking forward to meeting all of you wonderful people who have been been waiting to hear my story. I’ll be signing books, doing photos, and thanking you for sticking by my side! If you can’t make the event but wish to purchase a signed copy, you can call the store in advance to reserve one. (As at all my events, if you or your guest require extra assistance, please let us know!!!!)
New York, NY – Tuesday, October 18, 7:00 p.m. Barnes & Noble, Union Square. More details here.
***This kicked us off. Ethan attended with me and the whole time I looked over and saw him sitting in different aisles of the store reading different books....never mine--thank goodness. Thank you to everyone who came out.
Northvale, NJ – Wednesday, October 19, 7:00 p.m. Books & Greetings. More details here.
****Oh my gosh, what fun this was. Thank you to Kenny and his staff at this amazing store. This space was not huge, but we crammed 300 people in? Yeah. It was hilarious and my microphone was hooked up to a Karoke machine (you can't make this up). Lovely time and Kenny let me steal some great things from his shop-want an autographed book? He has some. Contact this store
St. Louis, MO – Thursday, October 20, 7:00 p.m. Left Bank Books. More details here.
****The only reason I booked St Louis was because my friends, Chrissy and Michelle live there. My flight from NYC was 2.5 hours delayed which meant I didn't make it to the event til after 7-have no fear-it rocked! I had so much fun & then overheard the group from Revitalize St Louis say they were going for tacos afterward-yes, I invited myself. Had a blast. Kris and Jay at Left Bank books also have autographed books.
Overland Park, KS – Saturday, October 22, 12:00 – 3:00 p.m. Johnson County Home + Remodeling Show. More details here.
*****This one was fun-my driver got absolutely lost going there, but I was still able to meet some fun peeps who won a radio contest and was shocked when I saw everyone standing to meet me-sorry folks! we always have chairs because I know I can't stand that long and I'm considered healthy:( Thank you so much to all the staff there for helping me get everyone through-great people and now all that attended know why I say wear comfy shoes.

****this is the first time that I get to say this -it was worth the 2.5 hour drive to see all these great people tonight. Very nice to run into another high school friend. And the best part was that Tessa came to sign books with me as she was in Grand Rapids for scans. Big prayers and good energy that we get some good news tomorrow! PS thank you to the staff here that stayed past the store closing to help us meet everyone !!
Bowling Green, KY – Thursday, October 27, 6:00 p.m. Warren County Public Library. Details here.

Cincinnati, OH – Friday, October 28, 7:00 p.m. Joseph-Beth Booksellers. Details here.
****I know you're shocked, but this one was almost a miss as I decided to take a detour from Bowling Green through Mammoth Cave. It wasn't til I was almost done touring that I realized there was a time change during my road trip. Good news, I managed to make it there right on time. To my surprise, Matt Reibs, one of my original Rehab Addict Addicts and part of my team from the Lebron episodes, showed up from Indiana to celebrate his 21st birthday with us! Thank you for everyone who came out and sorry about the wait on those stairs!!
