Tentative Book Tour dates!!

Hey hey!

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! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

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! πŸ˜› )

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,Β  I will not be giving a talk but just chit-chattin’ with you and signing your books!

      1. Tams says:

        But I don’t have a car! Or a passport! Otherwise I totally would. πŸ™

  6. Tatiana says:

    Yay! Congrats, Twinkie. I’ll totally be at the Booksmith event. Booksmith is amazing. I can’t wait to check out your book!

  7. sara cupcake says:

    yay! i will come visit you at crafty wonderland! and maybe powells too! Im super happy you are coming to portland! πŸ™‚

    maybe this is a dumb question, but are you going to be selling things at crafty wonderland or just a book signing?

    1. Twinkie Chan says:

      Yay!!! πŸ™‚

      Not a dumb question!! It was a decision I had to make, actually, and I decided to not stress myself out so much, so I will only be signing for a little bit on both days and not selling items in a booth πŸ™‚

  8. Jill says:

    WOOHOO! Wish I lived on the left coast again so I could come and cheer you on — and not that a publisher would PAY for a tour (gasp!), but are there thoughts of swinging through my side of the continent at all? πŸ™‚

    1. Twinkie Chan says:

      I am going to look into vending at more craft fairs in 2011 pending crazy schedule, but at least I have a book to pimp now, so less pressure to fill the table with handmade goods!!

      Actually my publisher is pretty cool and is covering some of the West Coast travel, but yeah…..fo sho not any East coast travel! πŸ˜›

  9. Cool! Wish you were doing a talk out here in New York. πŸ™‚ Maybe in the future~

    1. Twinkie Chan says:

      Oh yay, I want some ice cream scoops for my head, a double scoop of chocolate mint and strawberry. I wish they were for sale somewhere.

      1. Twinkie Chan says:
