Imprudence Tour Dates & Locations

My darling Gentle Reader, here is my…

Gail Carriger Imprudence Tour

One Day Break for Gail

These dates and locations have JUST been cemented so the bookstores likely will not have any announcements live on their websites yet. Don’t panic if you don’t see me listed. You are the first to know!

About the Voting

Thank you to everyone who voted, here are the results: As you can see Orbit is flying me to all three of the top winners for the poll, so there you have it, vote and you shall receive a Gail!

I found the poll results fascinating. I’m kinda into big data and analytics so I have a pretty good handle on where my sales are. SLC is consistently one of my top sellers as is Phili but rumor on circuit is that neither of these are great event cities and the voting numbers supported this. NY was a surprise, as it has a similar reputation. (Prevailing opinion being there is always so much to do in NYC that author signings fall to the wayside.)

Washington DC was one vote short of top three. It means I won’t make it this tour (although I’ve set a ping out to see if they want to add one last stop, it’s a matter of finding the willing and right venue). However, it also means I will look will a great deal more interest on that area in future for events or conventions. I had a great time at the Spy Museum when I was there so…

Now a word on the future: I will not be touring next year (2017) as for the first time in a decade I will have no book coming out through a major publisher. (There will be novellas though, so don’t you worry.) I will be bopping around visiting conventions and so forth, and I will arrange bookstore events if I happen to be in the area and I find a willing store to host me, but there will be no tour. That’s one of the reasons I’m allowing a two week stint this time (I usually ask for only the one week).

What does that mean?

This is likely the last chance you will get to see me in person, especially at a place like Brooklyn which would be prohibitively expensive for me to visit on my own.

This is it my darling Gentle Reader, the last chance to catch your Gail for a while. Ask her all the burning questions she carefully never answers on line.

{Gail’s monthly read along for June is Warprize by Elizabeth Vaughan. The book group is also doing a reread of Prudence.}

    Are you still anticipating making World Con/Mid America Con this summer in Kansas City? This is my hopeful face. A continent of local librarians/fangirls are very much looking forward to it if so!

    Interesting. I’m at least 90% certain that Copperfield’s in Petaluma is where I first bought and fell in love with Soulless back in 2009. I haven’t been to any events yet, but I’ll have to try to make that one.

    I had a small event there before, so i did see if they wanted to move it to Santa Rosa, but Petaluma really wanted me so I hope there is a decent turn out this time.

    If Orbit adds DC, Montgomery County in MD has a new, gorgeous library in Silver Spring, just across the border with loads of meetings rooms. There's also a hat shop within a mile and a thrift store less than a block from that library that often has lovely donated vintage items…

    (I know, we DC-ers are greedy since you were here only a few years ago)

  5. The Third Curia said:

    I agree, that library sounds lovely! Last time Gail were in DC, I couldn't go and I was quite disappointed. And it was at the Spy Museum, too…

    With no major/mainstream publication in 2017, when do you anticipate the third Custard Protocol, if at all? I can't remember the planned length of this series.
