View attachment 19464 We haven't had any discussions about a book tour so honestly cannot say one way or the other at this point.
Some subtle hints of visiting the Lehigh Valley, PA would be appreciated. I can even start up a He Man Women Haters Club if it would help. The Moravian Book Shop in Bethlehem has been around since 1745... just sayin’. And it would be quite a feather in their cap to host such an event. :)

With as much respect as Steve has for women, I don't think the Women Haters Club would be much of an incentive :eyebrow: but will pass along the book store info for the publisher's consideration if they do think about a book tour.

Just a little humor with the teaser plot you provided. And thanks for passing along the info. The Lehigh Valley seems to be filled with Stephen King fans. Well, with the ilk I hang around with and many of the people I meet, anyway. :)

I can. Not not see them doing a book tour. It whould raise Owens profile, and not to mention Steve whould love to do a book tour with his son. I also see this book as a way to get people interested in Owens work. Perhaps it is just to soon to be planning a book tour?
Yes, we rarely start planning any tours this far in advance. That's not saying we will this time, but not counting it out either.

Marsha, while your at it, here's the best bookstore in Spokane that would be a perfect match for Steve if he does tour:
auntiesbooks.com =D

I thought it was more like a 1,000
A thousand pages would have been nice, but according to Hodder & Stoughton's website, the page count is 736.

736 pages is not bad though, and I quite like the dimensions. 245x159x60 mm (or 9.6x6.3x2.4 inches) and 1070g (or 2.36 lbs).

Cumbersomeness, besides being a cumbersome word, can be a good thing.
