The Edits Are In!!!!! (+ Tour schedule)

I TURNED IN MY EDITS YESTERDAY!!!!!!!!!

*sigh of relief*

Edit are hard. Worth it about a million times over, but hard.

So here's what's coming up in the next couple of weeks as we ramp up for the release of WINGS!!

First, here's my tour schedule thus far. (These are just the basic locations; if you would like addresses and time, please click here to go to the calendar section of my website. You can click on any event to get the full details!)

May 5th- Changing Hands Bookstore, Tempe, Arizona

May 6th- Mrs. Nelson's Toy and Book Shop, La Verne, California (near L.A.)

May 7th- Anderson's Bookshop, Naperville, Illinois (near Chicago)

May 8th- Borders, LaGrange, Illinios (also near Chicago)

May 12th- Barnes and Noble, Idaho Falls, Idaho

May 14th- The King's English, Salt Lake City, Utah (The reading and signing is at 7:00, but I am also having my official launch party at about 5:30, with cake and Sprite and lots of mingling! I would LOVE to see my Utah friends there! Everyone is invited!!)

May 16th- Provo Children's Book Festival, Provo Public Library, Provo, Utah

May 19th- Barnes and Noble, West Jordan, Utah

May 21-23- CONduit, Salt Lake City, Utah (I don't have details on this one yet.)

June 6th- Borders, Redmond, Washington (Also part of the Supernatural Summer tour with Kim Harrison, Claudia Gray, and Kelley Armstrong!)

June 23rd- Orem Public Library, Orem, Utah

I have a few more events planned in June, July and August that are not official yet, but I'll keep you updated once I get confirmation.

Also fun, Harper has created a really beautiful microsite for me that should go live in the next couple of days. You'll be able to find it here!

In strange news, I am getting ready to start Twittering so I can do little updates from tour. (The only thing rarer to find on tour than a full night's sleep *Ha!* is an internet connection. So I will be relying on my iPhone and Twitter!) However, someone has already decided to be "Aprilynne Pike" along with a pic of my UK cover. So once I rule out anyone at Harper as the person who reserved that name, I'll be reporting it as impersonation and yoinking it back.:D However, if you are looking for me on Twitter and find "Aprilynne Pike" . . . um, yeah, it's not me. YET!! But it will be!!:D So once I get that all straightened out, I'll let you know where I am on Twitter too!

I'm also doing a ton of revamping both my blog and my MySpace, so I'll be posting links to those too. (This is what happens when I do revisions! I fall behind on everything else!!!:))

Okay, so this is the business-y post, I'll actually be posting again in a few minutes . . . okay, probably closer to half an hour, with something more interesting. So till then, enjoy the boring-ness.;)

Ciao!!!
