I had the delightful opportunity to go on a ten day book tour with Harriet Mcdougall, Alan Romanczuk, and Maria Simons to promote Mystic and The Wheel of Time Companion. The trip was inspiring and empowering. Despite the crazy schedule I managed to sleep well, eat (mostly) healthy, and do some sight seeing. I also made a point to enjoy a few local pubs, usually with Alan along with me.
Thank you to everyone who came out to our events, purchased a book, or shared their support in any way.
Here’s a brief, 2-minute video showing some of the highlights of the trip:
