The Tour Begins

The pace of the week steps up drastically today as I leave for the Soul Expressions Author Tour.  Today I leave for Indianapolis.  I’m taking my trusty-dusty iPod (and recorder) with me to record each day’s events.  I’m not taking my laptop so I won’t be able to blog each day, but I will give you a play-by-play when I get back.  Count on it.

I’m not going to leave you stranded while I’maway.  I’ve schedule a couple of posts for Thursday and Friday to hold you over until I get back. 

Thursday will be Open Mic Day for Readers.  That means you’re free to post Comments about anything that’s on your mind related to books and reading.  You can Comment on books you like, don’t like, the last book you read, the book you’re reading next, great web sites for readers, anything about reading.  You can even ask questions about my books, past and future.  The only restriction is that the questions should be from a reader’s perspective (and shouldn’t give away any major plot points of books!).

Friday will be Open Mic Day for Writers.  On this day the writer in you is free to post Comments and Questions related to writing.  I won’t be able to answer until next week, but you’re free to answer each other as you like.  We have some smart people visiting this blog, many of them published authors.  I”m sure they’ll help out.

One final treat for you.  If you’re around on Friday, you can catch me, Beverly Jenkins and Kimberla Lawson Roby on the road from the tour LIVE at 1:30pm on Blog Talk Radio (Romance Radio).  It’ll be archived in case you miss it.

That’s it.  Enjoy the rest of your week!  Here’s a quick run-down of the tour schedule.
