Okay I know I’m not supposed to do this. It’s way too early and I should wait until all the events are lined up and make one grand announcement. That’s how professional authors do things. But I’m no professional and I’m way too excited. Plus my whole life is supposed to be about abandoning shoulda, coulda, woulda, so what the hell?

Creative Book Publishing, also known as my publisher, has announced the first date of my book ‘tour’. Yes, I said tour because in my mind more than one city means you are officially ‘on tour’. Desperate I know, but this is keeping with the what the hell motto I’ve adopted.

So here it is, mark the date. If you are reading this blog, then this is your official engraved invitation:

Creative Book Publishing is excited to present the launch of Finding me in France by award-winning blogger Bobbi French. Join us on May 2, 2012 at Bianca’s from 6-8 p.m. to celebrate Bobbi and her fantastic new book. 

So for all you Finders who plan to be in St. John’s (my hometown) on May 3rd, I would be delighted to see you. Bianca’s is on Water Street, in the centre of town. Come and hang out, have a drink, say hello which really means please, please come so Neil and I aren’t standing there like two losers in a cold empty room. So I don’t have to drag strangers in off the street and promise them free booze and feed them lines about how marvelous the book is.

If you would like to come just say so in the comments and I’ll put you in the yes column.

If you don’t plan on being in Newfoundland and Labrador on May 3rd, then let me try to entice you …
