THE ROAD, April 18 – I’m nearing the halfway point in my book tour, and although the middle week is technically part of the tour – I have a few shows around LA – I’m worried about losing momentum. Here are a few things you can do to help out:
- If you’ve read the book, give me a review on Amazon. I’m not saying use words like “profound”, “life changing”, or “Sam is the next Walt Whitman”. But I’m not not saying it either.
- Please: tell people about my shows. Post event things on Facebook. I’ve done 23 readings thus far, and each has been a hell of a lot of fun. But I can always use more people. People are the coal for the furnace that is this book tour. Help me to shovel more and more and more of them into that metaphorical furnace.
- Buy some art prints. I know I said that these were only for sale at live shows, but that is no longer the case. I’m selling them through Paypal. $25 postpaid. My Paypal ID is firstname.lastname@example.org. Just specify which print you want. I’ll be shipping from the road, USPS 2-day. If you have questions about your order, you can write me at email@example.com.
- If you live anywhere on the southern eastern seaboard, come see me in SC, NC, VA, MD, or DC in the next few days. Don’t not go. Do go.
John & I stepped out to get some salads at the nearby Whole Foods last night, but the rental car wouldn’t start. I called Dollar, who said they’d gladly swap cars in the morning. So we walked to a nearby Subway. We’re both still haunted by memories of being stranded in Ohio 12 years ago, so it was sort of a somber, quiet walk.
