Halfway Through A Book Tour


By Jamie Freveletti
I'm halfway through a book tour for THE NINTH DAY and enjoying every minute. Even those minutes where I am the last in the restaurant when they're making the switch from breakfast to lunch and the coffee is burned from sitting for the past hour. While all my tours are fun, this one was made more so by the addition of Wendy Corsi Staub, a New York Times bestselling author. Harpercollins teamed us up and the trip became that much more enjoyable.

We started out in Buffalo on the local morning show (WKBW- Linda Pellegrino http://.http://www.wkbw.com/programming/am-buffalo/video/Authors-Wendy-Corsi-Staub-and-Jamie-Freveletti---September-30th-130867263.html ) and headed to Dunkirk, where Wendy grew up. After Dunkirk we flew to Chicago for a few signings here.
We capped the entire section of the tour off with a livestream event from the Poisoned Pen Bookstore in Arizona put together by Wendy's imprint, Avon and I got to go along for the ride. (You can watch it here: http://livestre.am/14puh ).

We've laughed--a lot. As I was shooting down the freeway in upstate New York watching the beautiful countryside fly by I thought that the one lesson I'm trying to learn is to enjoy the moment. Live in the present and stop worrying about the next goal I've set for myself. This is particularly tough for me--I always feel as though I could be doing more-but on this tour with the laughter and wonderful time spent talking books I came very, very close. Thanks to the readers that came out to share in our book launch.

I'm headed down the East coast of Florida and will update again when that is completed. In the meantime, I'll do my best to update on Facebook and Twitter and will cap it off with another post here.

Enjoy your week!
