We are working on updating TwinkieChanBooks.com with more infos, but I wanted to post a tentative list for my West Coast book tour right away since people are starting to ask, and I want you put dates on your calendars!
My first/launch date will be here in San Francisco at Booksmith in the Haight. We plan to have raffle prizes, a Yummy You pop-up shop for one night only, and if I can get my shizz together… little gift baggies for the first X people to arrive! (X = the number I can actually pump out! )
For most of the events, I will be talking about how the whole Twinkie Chan universe came to be and the philosophy behind my pattern making. At certain venues, we will also be working on a small crochet project together while I talk. At the two craft fairs I will be at, I will not be giving a talk but just chit-chattin’ with you and signing your books!
