First 2 Weeks of Tour

I'm happy to announce the first 2 weeks of my tour in March! The full schedule of where the book signings will take place is located at (it may still be constructing, but some of it is there). Also, I don't have the list of schools yet, but will post that soon.

Anyway, I will be in Richmond VA on March 3rd and 4th.

Atlanta GA on March 6-8.

Mesa AZ on March 10th and 11th.

Salt Lake City on March 12-14.

In the following weeks I will be visiting Orlando, San Diego, Spokane, and Idaho Falls, but the dates are not yet confirmed. If you'd like me to come to YOUR hometown, send my publisher a message through the same website listed above! I'll be doing a lot of touring this fall as well.

I'm meeting with my publisher today to discuss the presentation I'll be making at all the schools (we'll be doing 3 or 4 every day of the tour). We're calling it the Change the World Tour, with the basic message that we can accomplish anything in life if we work hard enough. Even change the world. (and, of course, there'll be lots of funny stuff)

One other note: we received another nice review, this one from ForeWord Magazine. It's kind of long, so I'll post it in another entry soon. But it's very positive.

I hope to see some of you on the tour!

It's such a short plane ride from Orlando to New York....

James Dashner said...

Luisa, I'm sure I'll end up in NY sometime within the next year. I expect you and your hubby to go to dinner with me!

Marsha Ward said...

Mesa? I can get to Mesa. How fun for you, James!

Best wishes for a fantastic tour, James. You'll be a smash hit. Next stop--England! :-)

Unknown said...

Wow! This is so cool. Can I have some of your frequent flier miles? I'm excited to hear how the tour goes. And congrats on the great reviews!

Alysa Stewart said...

Speaking of reviews, I've finally posted mine over at

Thanks for the ARC!

Eeeeeeeeee! So real now. I'll be sure to have my camera ready for the book signings. :)

We have a Books of Million in our town, will you be able to go there? I could definitely get the word out in our community.

Tristi Pinkston said...

This sounds so cool, James -- you mind if I'm a little jealous?

James Dashner said...

Alysa, thanks for the review! I left a comment over there.

Sarah, I think the signing will be at Barnes and Noble or Borders. I haven't gotten all the details yet. But I love Books a Million.

Tristi, be as jealous as you want. That's an inherent part of being a writer. :-)

Ron Simpson said...

OK I sent an email requesting you to come to Oklahoma City. If you get to come here, I will come mmet you in person.
We have Border, Barnes and Nobles and Books A Million.

LaFemmeSimple said...

ooh! We have B&N in Morrow..

Autumn Ables said...

Oh, good! We were so hoping you'd be in Mesa or Phoenix, Dashner. ;)

My son and I will make it over to see ya.

I'm still plugging along in my novel and a couple of children's books. It's been fun- but being a mommy of 5...well I can only do so much. Accepting and participating in Tristi Pinkston's BIAM challenges {Book In A Month} I've beena able to really shoot out my numbers.
