Taking the DANCE On the Road

Yes, I will be doing a book tour for A DANCE WITH DRAGONS.

It will, alas, be a shorter tour than the ones I did for A STORM OF SWORDS and A FEAST FOR CROWS. (Although we all expect that the crowds will be bigger). As much as I love meeting my readers and signing their books, I still have a lot on my plate just now, and I can't afford to take off a month for travel. So we'll likely be limiting the US book tour to no more than eight to ten cities.

The first three of those have already been set. We'll be launching the tour in BOSTON, followed by appearances in NEW YORK CITY, and then INDIANAPOLIS.

Herewith the details:

Tuesday, July 12
Barnes & Noble
98 Middlesex Turnpike
Burlington, MA 01803

Thursday, July 14
Barnes & Noble
Union Square
33 East 17th Street
New York, NY 10003

Saturday, July 16
Barnes & Noble
14709 US Hwy 31 North
Carmel, IN 46032

After Indy I will return home for a few days, and then it will be on to...

... yes, the SAN DIEGO COMICON.

I'll be there for the entire comicon. The 2012 Ice & Fire calendar will be making its debut there, and of course we'll have DANCE WITH DRAGONS out, and some advance stuff for the comic book adaptation. I will also be appearing on the HBO panel for the TV show, turning up at the Tor booth to promote the new Wild Cards book, FORT FREAK... and likely also appearing for IDW (the DOORWAYS comic) and Avatar (the FEVRE DREAM graphic novel). Work, work, work.

If my hand hasn't fallen off by the end of comicon, I will be resuming the book tour afterwards with a west coat swing. Details on that when they are nailed down.

But if you're in Boston, NYC, Indy, or San Diego... hey, be seeing you soon.
