For the last two weeks I’ve been pounding the phone trying to schedule presentations and book signings for this Spring. I’m excited that confirmations are really starting to come through, as seen by the list at the bottom of this post.
But first, some events need a “nudge.” And you can help.
The venues below are interested in bringing me in but have not yet committed. If you’d like to make a call, I’m sure they would appreciate hearing that their communities are excited about the possibility that I might present there. They are all excellent venues and I’d love to add them to the calendar. You don’t need to make a pitch for me—just a quick call to encourage them. Hearing from just one or two people can really help. Thanks!
