HORNS is out in just over a month, which means I’m on tour, which means your chance to see my adorable smiling face (pictured above) is right around the corner. My current tour schedule is below, but keep in mind that it is subject to change, and that dates may be added, removed, or shifted around. You can trust me to update this post as more information comes in. I don’t, for example, have any UK dates, but I know a brief UK tour is under discussion. So stay tuned.

On a related HORNS note, before the week is out, I’m going to put up another post, fielding some of the more common questions I’ve had about the book. If you’ve got a question for me about HORNS, ask it in the comments thread, and maybe I’ll get to it (I’m collecting questions on Twitter as well).

Now I won’t be saying too much about the plot – this will be a spoiler free Q&A – but I’m glad to address stuff about release dates, or how the book got written, or why it took so long, or whatever you might have for me. You can also ask about L&K, H-SB or 20TH CENTURY GHOSTS, as long as you can tie it into HORNS in some way. If you did have a good question, you’d actually be doing me a favor by asking it. I have to do a mini-web-video-thing about the book and I don’t have a lot of practice talking about it yet, and so this will help me get my thoughts in order.
