Genuine Fraud (and cake)

Genuine Fraud Tour Dates


Genuine Fraud comes out Sept 5th, and the We Were Liars deluxe edition is in stores now. (It has all kinds of goodies in the back, including new love letters.)
I'll be touring this fall -- and doing events with some amazing authors.  I would love to see you there. 

What are the events like?  You come, I chat, sometimes I chat with fellow authors. The other authors are listed below and they're all people I'm really excited to be doing events with. Possibly I'll  read just a tiny bit from Genuine Fraud, and I'll definitely tell you about the book.  We laugh, answer questions, there's a conversation. Then there's a book signing. You can bring your books from home but you should buy a book from the store if you can afford to, even if it's not mine, because bookstores depend on sales to keep hosting authors.  I'll sign all books, old or new.  You can come up for a photo and take a card or bookmark if you want a signature and can't afford a book at the moment -- no problem.  We can take photos together.  Chat a little more, maybe.  It's a relaxed and cheery time, fun to share with friends who love reading.   See you there!  xoE
