Hello, friends! I am pleased to announce the virtual tour dates for DAUGHTER OF THE DEEP, which will be published by Disney-Hyperion on October 5. You can visit the landing page with links to each individual event for more information about how to purchase a ticket to reserve a spot!
We thought long and hard about virtual versus in-person events for the October tour. I know we’ve all had our fill of Zoom meetings thanks to the Pandemic That Shall Not Be Named. Nevertheless, keeping this tour virtual seemed like the most responsible choice, and I also enjoyed last fall’s virtual tour because it allowed people from all over the U.S. and all over the world to take part more easily. That was really wonderful to see! Be sure to check details about whichever event you’d like to attend. If you’re outside the U.S., some of the stores are able to ship signed books internationally. Others cannot. Each event will feature different content, so no two will be exactly alike. I’ll give you some hints about what that content will be when we get closer to October. It’s best to get your tickets early, though! Even though the events are virtual, attendance is capped, and last year every single event sold out.
I am so excited to share this new story with you — my first science fiction novel, and a tribute to the incredible world Jules Verne created with 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
Until then, stay well, keep reading, and remember to check your air supply and depth gauge!
