Author Kristie Cook, events, book signings, appearances, hangouts,

Not everyone gets the opportunity to go to a big book conference or author signing. I understand how frustrating and disappointing it is when they’re not near you or you just can’t go for one reason or another. Because of this, I’ve decided to do some author hangouts with readers in the places where I’ll be traveling. I am so freakin’ excited to announce the ones for this summer. Maybe you can join us!

We’ll be talking about books and characters, getting a hint at what’s next, having a Q&A session, signing books and stuff, winning prizes, and eating yummies. I might even read from my current WIP (work-in-progress)! Books can be pre-ordered at special prices, and they’ll also be available at the hangout, along with special merchandise. And who knows – you might make some new friends who love to read the same books you do!

These will be casual get-togethers. Nothing fancy. All relaxing and fun. If you’re in or near any of the areas, I hope you’ll come out and join the fun!

Here’s where I’ll be this June and July:

6/18-20 – utopYA Con – Nashville, TN – Tickets here

6/27 – 1-3 pm – Hangout in Green River State Park – near Campbellsville, KY – RSVP/Pre-order here

7/2 – 6-8 pm – Hangout at The Island – Pigeon Forge, TN – RSVP/Pre-order here

7/11 – 2-4 pm – Hangout at Newport on the Levee – Cincinnati – RSVP/Pre-order here

7/18 – 12-2 pm – Hangout at John James Audubon State Park – near Evansville, IN/Owensboro, KY – RSVP/Pre-order here

7/24-25 – Penned Con – St. Louis, MO – Tickets here / Pre-order here

Penned Con will wrap up my June/July travels, but I’ll be heading out again in late August. We’ll be making our way toward InD’Scribe Con in Palm Springs, CA, so stay tuned. Maybe I can come to your area!
