Hey all!

I'm starting to try and plan book promotion over the next year.

You may or may not know that when it comes to book tours, it's on the author's own dime, so that means that I -- like pretty much anyone else these days -- am limited in where I go.

But, thanks to several other reasons I have to travel, and the flexibility I DO have, I will be hitting a few different cities and towns between April and October of this year.

So, I'd like to ask all of you who may be in any of these cities about local bookstores you like and know of, youth groups/GLBT groups, colleges and universities, the works, which I may NOT know of to do my best to hit as many bases as I can. Obviously, the bonus here is that you'd get to see me doin' my thang. [Smile]

So, for now, here are the places I am mostly positive I will be in sometime over the next eight months:
• Washington State
• Oregon
• San Francisco
• Vancouver
• Chicago and surrounding areas
• Cincinnati/Columbus, OH
• Minneapolis/ St. Paul & Duluth

And a maybe to Baltimore, Boston and D.C.

Ideas? Thanks!

Haha, not to be biased or anything, but Brown has a phenomenally supportive and open GLBTQ community, as well as being really open about sexuality in general. They've brought sexuality speakers in before, and they have study groups called MSEX and FEMSEX for male and female sexuality. I'm not sure how the book tour thing works: do you need a sponsor? Because I have a friend in FEMSEX (I would be in it but I found out about it too late [Frown] next year for sure though!) and I can ask her to connect me to the organizer to chat... just throwin' that out there. Brown is in Providence, RI, so it's an easy 45 minute train ride from there to Boston. And of course, I would LOVE to hear you speak. [Smile]

If 'Chicago and surrounding areas' includes metro Detroit, I could definitely hook you up with the GLBT people at my old high school. [Razz]

But that's way too far away. Sadly.

Lucys: thanks! Let me ask the publicity folks at my publisher about that per sponsorship, and I'll get back to you. I'm considering perhaps just taking a couple weeks to hit the east coast by train in the fall, so that could actually work out decently.

September: yeah, it really doesn't. And I confess that Detroit is one of those places that just depresses me so badly, it's not somewhere I'd make a point of going.

*squee* You're coming to San Francisco? Hot-dog! *does happy dance*

Alright, now that I've had my fangirl moment...

San Francisco is a pretty spiffy city in that you can find gay anything pretty much anywhere (especially if you live in the castro, like I used to...). There are a lot of LGBT-oriented bookstores, but I don't know that a lot of them really cater to the teen age group. Personally, I'm a huge fan of Black Oak Books. I'd marry it if it was human, honestly.

Hey, while you're in the San Francisco area, do you think you'll be stopping by Berkeley? Because (1) it's a lovely place, and (2) it's a lot easier for me to get to from where I'm living right now (selfish motives, I know). I'm pretty sure they've got a LGBT youth center there, too, but I don't know a whole lot about it.

I'd love to be able to have time and the means to get to Montreal, period, because it's my fave province and one of my favorite friends lives there who I haven't had a chance to visit in much too long.

Alas, that plane fare on top of other fares is just too much right now. [Frown] Maybe next year.

BiGoddess, I should have known you were a 'friscan. [Smile] But yep: that should fit into the schedule, and it's the one place that connecting with venues won't be too hard b/c I do know most of them already. I'll see about Berkeley too, though: I can just grab the Bart there, no?

And Elizabeth, you're a big silly. [Razz]

I don't suppose, what with Vancouver already on the itinerary, you'd consider coming to Victoria? Probably not....ah well, I'll just have to take a day off and get my butt over to Vancouver or down to Seattle!

(Pssst Heather just a small thing to improve your geography skills. Montreal is a city, not a province.... Quebec is the province. [Smile] A bit like Seattle city being in the Washington state except Washington here is a state and not a province. [Wink] )

Alas, I don't live in the city anymore. I'm in the suburbs now. But I'm a San Franciscan a heart, for sure.

Anyways, yeah. You can just hop on BART to get from San Francisco to Berkeley. You can get a round trip ticket from pretty much anywhere in the city for under ten dollars, so it's pretty reasonable.

You'll let us know when you're coming 'round, yes?

East coast touring could really only happen for me in the fall. It's especially tricky because it's likely that at the same time I need to be doing book promotion, my partner's latest short film will be hitting the film circuit, so that makes scheduling for both of us tricky.

So, most likely, if I can do the east coast, it'll likely be over a couple of weeks in September or October.

Hit City Lights, then Pegasus in downtown Berkeley. Bonus points if Clay's working that day. That would give me plenty of reason to go back to Berkeley for a weekeend.

'Fraid not, dailicious. Really, when you do book promo, the aim is just to hit the very biggest markets, and I'm afraid CO isn't on the map in that regard. You're generally aiming for the biggest cities and then the coasts.

I really can't add on extra places: bear in mind that isn't just about time (after all, I still have work that needs doing), but also about money. This girl lives lean as it is: most of the travel I'm doing for the book promotion outside my area is either paid for by having photo work scheduled in those places which pays my way, or part of family visits.

So, per responding here, it's really about venues within the areas I posted in the first post. [Smile]

In Cincinnati I would say Hobo Books, but they had a water-main break and were forced to close. In Lexington, Kentucky (just an hour and half away) there's Sqecial-Media which would probably be down for this event - http://www.sqecialmedia.com/

There's also a lgbtq library/meeting space opening in the next month or so at the University of Kentucky (in Lexington again) that could probably host you. A friend of mine is one of the people organizing it, and I can give you her contact privately.

There is a lgbtq center in Cincinnati on Hamilton Ave in Northside, but I don't know anyone involved or their contact info. I grew up in Cincinnati, and it was almost always closed whenever my friends and I wanted to hang out there.

In Minneapolis, I would recommend the Jack Pine Community Center - http://www.thejackpine.org/

It's a really rad space that has a big focus on being intergenenrational. From their site: "The Jack Pine Community Center is a collectively run, intergenerational free space committed to popular education, anti-oppression, and the fight for justice, liberation, and autonomy. We seek to foster self-expression, self-representation and radical activism by providing a family-friendly space for skill sharing, events, meetings and art."

Oddly, in six years of living in Minneapolis, I had never heard of that space, even though I can picture exactly where it is. Crazy!

Thanks for the Cincy suggestions: given the way Cincy and the surrounding areas are (you're from there, I don't need to explain what I mean, I presume), I'm hoping to be able to do a good deal of promo and support while I'm there.

Since the cities are close by each other, if you do come to Cincinnati, myself and others could also host an event for you in Lexington as well either at the Public Library (it's very easy for us to get rooms there) or the beforementioned lgbtq space at UK. The latter would enable us to tap into University money for promotion, but the former would be a more welcoming space (universities tend to attract only college students and graduates while public libraries are welcoming to almost everyone).

Trying to get something at the Cincinnati Public Library would be cool because the library system in that city ROCKS. It's seriously amazing.

I don't know what's going on with University of Cincinnati nowadays. When I was in highschool and after I dropped out I helped organize a conference there every year, and we were able to get University funding really easily for speakers and rooms and food and such. So there might be some student group that could do that with you, or the women's studies department or something. I forget her name, but a professor there is a fairly well known (or published anyway) feminist writer..

Edited to add: I just found the website to the LGBTQ Center in Cincy:
Here's the website to the

http://www.glbtcentercincinnati.com/

Again, I have no idea if they're good folks or not, but there they are.

Quoted by Heather:

"yeah, it really doesn't. And I confess that Detroit is one of those places that just depresses me so badly, it's not somewhere I'd make a point of going."

Heather! You MUST come to Detroit. Seriously. I know that it is one of the most troubled cities in the country, and one of the most dangerous, but it is still an amazing place. There is so much there! I would even make the trip out to come see you there!! Not to mention, it is one of the most populated areas in the US, and that population needs some sex ed too [Smile] Besides, it's only a few hour drive from Chicago... especially if you're on the east side. And, you wouldn't even have to go into downtown if you didn't want. Even just to Livonia or Dearborn or Ecorse would work...

All I'm asking: consider it - at least...
