The Rollback book tour comes to an end

And so, with the end of Oasis 20, the SF convention in Orlando, Florida, at which I was one of the Guests of Honor this weekend, the book tour for Rollback, my 17th novel, comes to an end.

From Vancouver, B.C., to Washington, D.C.; from Toronto to Denver; from Calgary to Orlando -- 18 cities all across the continent: signings, readings, and talks; two convention guest-of-honorships; lots of radio, TV, newspaper, and magazine interviews; a bunch of bestsellers' list appearances; and a whole lot of fun spread over six amazing, exhilarating, exhausting weeks.

Special thanks to Carolyn Clink, who did enormous work organizing the tour; Janis Ackroyd, my publicist at H.B. Fenn and Company; Alexis Saarela, my publicist at Tor; Harold Fenn of H.B. Fenn and Tom Doherty of Tor Books; Mike Brett-Surman and Kim Moeller; Randy McCharles; Paul Schuch; the Library of Congress; the Saskatchewan Library Association; the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers; Genrecon; Oasis; all the booksellers; all the librarians; all the journalists; and to Rob's Angels -- the wonderful women who helped out as my handlers across Canada: Bonnie Jean Mah in Vancouver, Barb Galler-Smith in Edmonton, Kirstin Morrell in Calgary, and Bev Geddes in Winnipeg. The tour would have been impossible without all of you! THANK YOU!

As always, you are very welcome. Anything for a friend.

And I did want to insert a Charlie's Angels joke here, but I didn't think it came out right. *shrug*

Whew! I am exhausted just reading about it!

Thanks, Rob! I'm thrilled to be described as one of Rob's Angels--and I'm in very good company!

It was a blast spending the day together in Vancouver. And you didn't even get rained on... ;-)
