Not at Tales this year

A few people have asked, so …

Yes, it would have been great to sign copies of SHRUBS down there this year. A few things stood in the way:

  • Money — we don’t have much right now.
  • Time off — Jen has taken a bunch of time off so I could do other travel this year. She doesn’t have enough time accrued at the moment to allow her to stay home with the kids right now.
  • Second manuscript — This is the biggy. My second ms is due September 1. I’ve set a personal deadline of August 1, just so I have the month to redraft things, move stuff around as needed, and make any edits I think are necessary before my editor sees it.

If all goes as planned, my second book will be out about a month before next year’s TOTC, and therefore it might make a lot of sense to go down to sign both books for people. We’ll see how 2016 shakes out when it gets here.

  1. Sounds great with a second book on the way. I just got your first one, and have started playing around with recipes. It’s a great and exciting book, and I’m happy to have bought it.
    Thinking about your second manuscript, I wondered if you could now conclude that readers know what you’re referring to without having to explain concepts such as cachaca, demerara and other sugars, Tales etc?
    I get the feeling of reading a “… for dummies” manual, while the content is suitable for pros.
