Gearing up for a Book Tour

It’s two months until my book comes out, and I have been getting some good news:

Redroom.com, the author and reader social networking site, has named me its “Rising Star” this week. My picture and profile are featured on the site’s home page. Please check it out and pay me a visit.

Towers of Gold has been chosen as a selection for both the History Book of the Month Club and the Military Book of the Month Club.

So far, I have about 25 speaking engagements set up. I will be speaking at the Commonwealth Club on Monday Oct. 6 as part of Litquake, in a panel called Scandal, Intrigue, and Drama in California history.

I will be on West Coast Live, the radio show, on October 4th. Some of my other speaking engagements include various Jewish book festivals, the California Historical Society, the Mechanics Institute, and the Huntington Library in San Marino.

My website is about to launch. It will not only focus on me, but will include a large section with lots of photos. I am trying to capture the atmosphere on the West Coast during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

This is starting to get fun!

Congratulations. I'll be eager to see what you think about the book touring after your engagements are underway. All reports I've heard is that the people are wonderful but the timetables are grueling.
