Very busy weekend (I got on a plane again, more about that later) but wanted to take a moment to post the schedule for the upcoming book tour. It's short, it's sweet (it's with a different publisher - my previous book of essays was with Andrews McMeel, and so this one is too) and it's being set up by Kathy-the-publicist-that-I-haven't-mocked-with-a-title-yet, instead of your good friend and mine, Jayme-the-wonder-publicist, who is with Storey Publishing, so don't call her and ask her all sorts of stuff about the tour or the book because this time it's not her problem. (I imagine that right now Jayme is remembering all of the times that things got ugly on the road and all I had with me was a big problem, a poor attitude and her phone number, and thinking "Have a good time Kathy." ) I'll post this on the tour page as soon as I can.
