Fall 2012 Tour Begins Soon

  Copied from the Davis Crossing Blog


Fall 2012 Tour Begins Soon

We are gearing up for a new tour! This year's version begins September 6, 2012. We will leave home on September 5 and travel to Danville, Kentucky for our first event. Then we will cruise through Ohio for events in Cincinnati and Columbus, then to Grand Rapids, Michigan, before heading into Canada.

We will stay the next two weeks in Ontario for several events, including author talks, writing workshops, and bookstore signings, then take a long trek to central Canada on our way to the western part of the country. We will have events in Steinbach, Manitoba; Calgary, Alberta; and Abbotsford, British Columbia. From there, we will come back to the U.S. for engagements in the Seattle area.

After that? We don't know yet. We hope to schedule more events between Seattle and home (western Tennessee), so if you have a school or homeschool group that would like a visit, and you are located somewhere between Seattle and western Tennessee, and you would like us to come in early October, let me know by email - bryan (at) daviscrossing (dot) com. I also have some openings for Ontario in mid September.

This time Amanda and I will be traveling with my wife Susie and our youngest daughter, Hannah. Hannah will be in charge of updating this blog, including posting photos and video clips. She will also attempt to live stream events where Internet access is available, so watch for announcements for live-streamed events.

As with the previous tour, we hope to have a contest, so be sure to check for the latest tour updates.

One more item: Because of high gas prices, this will be an expensive tour. We don't have as many events scheduled as usual, so it will be very difficult to sell enough books to meet expenses. I won't mention this again on this blog, but if you would like to make a contribution toward our expenses, I would appreciate it greatly. Please see the donation link on the left side of the blog page.

Feel free to ask questions or make comments.

Noble Imposter Discussion

I thought some people might like to discuss Noble Imposter (here in the comments) so I made this post. If you have any questions about it (Or Precisely Terminated!) I'd be happy to answer them as long as they aren't spoilers for the last book.

Now I'll start the discussion (Major spoiler for Noble Imposter!!) Don't read if you don't want it spoiled.

Did any of you guess that Monica's mother was alive or was it a total surprise? 

  I'm going to have a lot of fun writing their meeting in the third book  . . . if they do get to meet. :) You'll see. You can never guess what's going to happen in these books.

40,000 And Counting

The Cantral Chronicles Book 3 (CCB3) is now 40,000 words long and growing!

I'm working on it as quickly as I can, because soon my dad and I will embark on a month long tour across the northern US and through Canada, and there won't be much time for writing once we're on the road.

I believe CCB3 is progressing well. I'm adding new characters left and write (Er. . . Right. Left and right.)   Some of their names are Chrom, Shal, Wheaten, and Fahltrid.   Names subject to change or removal, but I thought you might like to see them. :)

If I had any artistic talent, I'd draw them, too, but if I tried that with my skills, you'd get a bunch of identical stick figures, and those aren't that interesting.

There's lots going on around here that tries to get in the way of my writing, but I'm trying to not let it.

I hope you all have an excellent day. Keep being spiffen. Or if you haven't been spiffen lately. Start. It's good thing to be.


Oh, and I've been updating my daily blog every day life blog, too.

Behind the Scenes From Noble Imposter

Some people like to know little tidbits about what happened in the writing process for each book, and I have to write them down before I forget.

Here is one from Noble Imposter.

If you haven't read the book yet. I suggest skipping the next paragraph. :)

Spoilers from NI!


In the first draft on Noble, Vinnie had no major roll at all. He just kind of chilled and held Amelia's necklace for Monica, but after some major revisions to the mid section of the novel, I needed a distraction so Monica could get Aaron's tablet. That's when Vinnie's adventure was born and he got to show his skills. Did you enjoy his five minutes of fame?
