There are so many roads to publication. Some of them winding and cautious, some of them so filled with beautiful sights you forget you’re human, some of them barely long enough to be considered on-ramps. Mine has been long and at times arduous, but always filled with the support and encouragement of colleagues I’m lucky enough to call friends — best friends, amazing friends, I-will-join-you-in-a-mystery-car-for-days-on-end friends.
As of today, I am 60 days from publication. At the end of those 60 days, I will launch BEWARE THE WILD into the world, then hit the road with katiecotugno, tessagratton, bethanyhagen, and andimjulie on our aptly named ROADSIDE YA TOUR.
Along the way, we’re going to take advantage of all the strange, unsettling, inspiring attractions roadside America has to offer. Basically, if someone built a henge out of it, we’re going to go find it and stick a fork in it.
If you know of any strange/unsettling/inspiring sights we ought to pursue in the states we’ll be visiting, let us know! Drop it in one of our Ask boxes, or tweet it at us. Use the tag #RoadsideYA and we’ll all see it. 
And just in case the flyer above isn’t totally, perfectly clear, ROADSIDE YA 2014 stops include:
10/23: mainstreetbooks in St. Charles, MO
10/24:  parnassusbooks in Nashville, TN
10/25: malapropsbookstore in Asheville, NC
10/29: FoxTale Book Shoppe in Woodstock, GA
10/30: Barnes & Noble in Gulfport, MS
11/1: Louisiana Book Fest in Baton Rouge, LA
11/3: Octavia Books in New Orleans, LA
11/4: bluewillowbookshop in Houston, TX
11/5: Irving Public Library in Irving, TX
So mark your calendars! Spread the word! We hope to see you this fall!
