In 2010, I ventured outside of California on twelve different occasions to speak at schools, libraries, and conferences. If you saw me speak, hopefully it looked like I was having a great time...because I was!
In 2011, I'll be speaking a lot less because Isaiah will be here and I'd like to stick closer to home so I don't miss anything. But I just found this video, put together after my recent trip to Rome, Georgia. I think it gives you a good idea of why I've never said no to an opportunity to meet readers.
