Lots of you have been reaching out to me wanting to know the dates of my book tour, so I thought it was time to tell you the dealio. I have set tentative dates and am working with some lovely conspirators to set up events, but it all hangs on one very important, essential and, frankly, annoying thing: me getting a work visa. I don’t so much need the visa for the tour but I definitely do for the Creative Joy retreat. Everything was looking good but then we hit some delays…. this is less good. There have been a few sleepless nights over here :-/
The frustrating thing is I don’t see the lines separating us anymore. As far as I’m concerned I live and work in a global community — the UK, America, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico… I chat with people from all these places (and many others!) every. single. day. I’ve had peeps from FORTY countries take my e-courses. So for me to not be able to come to the USA and do my thang without a visa blows the circuits in my brain. It just doesn’t compute.
Sadly, that is the way our world still operates and I have to abide by the rules. So as soon as I have the visa I will be booking flights and trains and hotels and will be descending on your shores (if you’re in North America) just as soon as they’ll let me.
At the moment the tour is looking like this:
Monday 25 June – Boston event (hosted by Susan Piver) Tuesday 26 June – Providence informal get-together [28 june – 2 July — Creative Joy Retreat] Tuesday 3 July – NYC event (hosted by Monica McCarthy)
[6-8 July – Portland OR – World Domination Summit]
Wed 11 July – LA event (hosted by Marisa Anne)
Friday 13 July – SF event (hosted by Teahouse Studios)
Sunday 15th July – “Books, Boys & Business” — Delicious Food & Conversation with Mati Rose + Susannah (@ Teahouse Studios, SF)
Wed 18 July – Vancouver event
Saturday 21 July – Toronto event (hosted by Jamie Ridler & Tanya Geisler)
[new dates here!]
So these are my tentative dates that we are trusting will happen and are planning towards. If the visa comes through late I may have to do some shuffling and reordering, but I promise I will keep you posted of all developments as they happen.
Honestly, I just want to get on a plane right now :)
The blog book tour continues!
