Shadowfever Launch Party Details!


We've firmed up the city for the launch party—one of my all time favorites—New Orleans! What better place to escape the winter blues?

This is the plan: Shadowfever goes on sale Tuesday, January 18th. Serendipitously, Monday, the 17th is MLK day, a holiday for many of you, which makes it perfect for a long weekend getaway. Come in early and party through the weekend!

The launch party will be held at a local hotel on Monday evening, hosted by a local NOLA bookstore. We plan to stay in that hotel all weekend--hotel to be announced shortly.

The launch will kick off with a reading from Shadowfever, followed by a book signing, and here’s the fun part—the event won’t conclude until Tuesday afternoon—with a Q&A where I will address any niggling questions that remain.

There may also be a few special guests.

We need to get an idea how many people plan to attend in order to choose the right size venue. I prefer an intimate setting, but I don’t want to preclude anyone attending due to space limitations. We also need to make sure we have a large enough area to meet and talk.

The event will be free of charge with the purchase of Shadowfever through the hosting bookstore, and companion tickets will be available for a nominal fee.

So, who’s in for a long weekend in NOLA, a good book and a great party? Weigh in here, at FB or my message board!

What an awesome idea. As a left coastie with no chance of going, I was wondering if you might upload a transcript or podcast of the Q&A or do an online Q&A later.
