1) Hey, why aren’t you coming to my town? You never come to my town?

1)We pick dates and cities for the tour based on a lot of factors, population, ease of travel, how much mail I get from that area, and if there is a bookstore there who knows how to host an event and has a venue in which to do it. I can really only effectively tour for a month a year, and some would argue that’s too long. We have to hit the most people with the greatest ease of travel. When I was touring in February, we had to cut the Midwest from the tour because of weather, this year, I’m not doing Texas or Florida because we added the Chicago dates. I don’t choose the cities, they are determined from a lot of factors. If you don’t have a at least a dozen best-selling authors coming to your town every year, then you probably don’t have an event-oriented book store.

2)Will you sign other books I bring to the event.

2)My policy is that I will sign any of my books that you bring, but usually I can only personalize one because of time constraints. Most of the stores that host events require that you buy the current book from them. If you’re a collector or reseller, and you have a backpack full of books, you have to wait until last to have your books signed. This tour will have a few ticketed events. Usually the price of the ticket includes a book, or the price of the ticket discounted against the book. I understand that at some of the events they’ll have me sign the books in advance, so if you don’t want to wait in line, you won’t have to, but if you want to wait to have your book personalized or just to say hi, I’ll be there. So far I think Powell’s in Portland may be the only one doing that.

3)What can I expect at the event? Do you read, talk, do puppet shows?

3)I don’t read, but I usually talk about the book and other stuff for about 20-30 minutes, then take your questions for another 20 minutes or so, then I sign books until we’re done. If it’s a big event, and you want your book personalized, it can take an hour or two. Some places allow you to stay in your seat, others, there’s an actual line. It just depends on the venue. If you’re not sure, give them a call beforehand.

    Please come to Texas!

  • 2 Donna Gambale // Dec 14, 2009 at 2:07 pm

    I can’t tell you how excited I am that you’re coming to West Chester, PA! Chester County Books & Music is a great indie, too. April’s far away, but it’s definitely something to look forward to.

  • 3 jamie // Dec 14, 2009 at 2:25 pm

    I am SO there for the Chicago stop! :)

  • 4 sheryl // Dec 14, 2009 at 2:55 pm

    nice, two Phoenix stops =) would it be all stalker-y to come to both?

  • 5 arden // Dec 14, 2009 at 7:13 pm

    Yes, please come to Texas!!

  • 6 Lindsey // Dec 14, 2009 at 8:20 pm

    Yay for another Author Guy book tour! And it’s only a 5 hour drive for me to get to Milwaukee.

  • 7 kapgar // Dec 15, 2009 at 7:45 am

    Woo hoo! Another trip to Naperville!

  • 8 Rob L. // Dec 15, 2009 at 9:31 am

    The patrons of BookPeople, Austin, TX request your return.

  • 9 Daniel Goldin // Dec 15, 2009 at 10:01 am

    Boswell is the ex-Downer Avenue location of Harry W. Schwartz Bookshops. You will see a good amount of familiar faces and I think every bookseller under 60 I have is a big fan. The two that are over don’t know what’s good for them.

  • 10 Raymond // Dec 15, 2009 at 10:07 am

    No love for Florida? We read your books down here too, ya know :(

  • 11 mattw // Dec 15, 2009 at 11:57 am

    Yahoo for coming to the greater Chicago area! Even though it would be closer for me to go to Chicago or Naperville, I’ll head up for the Milwaukee stop to show some love to my friend’s bookstore. Can’t wait!

  • 12 Stone Fox // Dec 15, 2009 at 12:17 pm

    That’s an impressive schedule, Christopher. Too bad you’re not coming to my hood. Have a great Christmas.

  • 13 GaryF // Dec 15, 2009 at 1:48 pm

    Any chance of making a stop in Fresno or Sacramento? Central Valley loves the Chris man!!

  • 14 Dave // Dec 15, 2009 at 11:13 pm

    Canada loves you too you know!

  • 15 Scarlette // Dec 16, 2009 at 12:10 am

    Why none in Canada? You have Canadian fans, :)

  • 16 Jeremy // Dec 16, 2009 at 8:29 am

    That’s it you skipped my fly over state on the last two tour I refuse to buy this book. Well no actually that’s not true but still you might want to talk to your publisher about there being a middle to the country.

  • 17 Joe // Dec 16, 2009 at 7:00 pm

    Please come to Kaua’i!

  • 18 Sarah // Dec 17, 2009 at 7:10 am

    I agree with Scarlette… You have tons of fans in Canada… You should try to come to Toronto!! 😀

  • 19 Laura // Dec 17, 2009 at 8:55 am

    No Seattle trips?! I know Bellevue is close, but I’m fairly sure you’d MUCH rather come to Seattle.

  • 20 Wilson // Dec 17, 2009 at 6:16 pm

    Pretty fucking please come to Austin!!! I wasn’t able to attend last time, please give me another chance.

  • 21 Stephan // Dec 18, 2009 at 8:38 am

    I have done my best to spread the love of your work through Dallas/Ft. Worth. Please visit!

  • 22 Eddy Kitchell // Dec 18, 2009 at 8:53 am

    Come to St.Louis,MO

  • 23 RedtheLibrarian // Dec 18, 2009 at 11:08 pm

    I know Reno is probably somewhere near Arkansas on your list of must-see stops, but I and a few of your other minions in the libraries & bookstores have been steadily flinging your books toward receptive readers for a while now. So if your SF trip ends with an earthquake that flings you eastward…

  • 24 Kevin Talley // Dec 19, 2009 at 1:48 am

    Come to Austin, Texas and we we’ll have Colt McCoy read a passage out of “Bite Me” at the Rose Bowl game.

  • 25 Kevin Talley // Dec 19, 2009 at 1:49 am

    *we will

  • 26 Omar Gonzalez // Dec 19, 2009 at 12:42 pm

    You know you want to come to Austin!

  • 27 Kevin Talley // Dec 19, 2009 at 1:29 pm

    *BCS National Championship game

  • 28 Victoria // Dec 19, 2009 at 2:33 pm

    I agree with everyone else.. come to texas! Preferably DFW but austin would work too.

  • 29 Annie // Dec 20, 2009 at 7:03 pm

    Alright…you’re coming to VA! I’m so there =)

  • 30 Rebecca // Dec 20, 2009 at 10:12 pm

    Boston pleaseeee :]

  • 31 Magz // Dec 21, 2009 at 2:47 pm

    Come to TO!

  • 32 Molly // Dec 21, 2009 at 7:43 pm

    Oh, how I wish you were going to be stopping in Minneapolis/St. Paul!!!! However, I’m going to try to convince my husband that we should road-trip it to Milwaukee to meet you. You are our favorite author, we love all your stuff!

  • 33 miss m // Dec 22, 2009 at 12:45 am

    You know what’s a big state full of people? Florida. Seriously. No one comes here. But dammit, you should. Show ’em how to do it by relaxing on our world-class beaches…er…I mean, signing autographs. 😉

  • 34 Lori // Dec 23, 2009 at 3:40 pm

    Christopher! I will see you April 3rd in NYC, where I can thank you for allowing me to host the Author Q&A session with you on Goodreads. Cant wait!!

  • 35 Picard // Dec 24, 2009 at 1:24 pm

    YES! Chicago! Thank you, all is forgiven…I knew if we elected a president from Chicago, we’d get you there eventually…

  • 36 Chris // Dec 29, 2009 at 1:46 pm

    Dude – No trip to Canada :(

  • 37 Mike // Dec 29, 2009 at 10:35 pm

    No Detroit stops?!

    How can one of the funniest authors out there not stop at the butt of all jokes?

  • 38 Patricia // Dec 30, 2009 at 12:06 am

    Really? Only one Bay Area stop. Don’t you live here, dude?

  • 39 Amanda Dubs // Dec 30, 2009 at 12:21 am

    I don’t know if you will but I hope you make it down to Texas again.

  • 40 Jessica Cooper // Jan 1, 2010 at 2:37 am

    Really???? No Minnesota???? Really????

  • 41 Jennifer // Jan 3, 2010 at 10:07 pm

    Houston would be better for me, but I would drive to Austin…

  • 42 Thom // Jan 4, 2010 at 8:26 am

    I didn’t even realize they had a University Books in Bellevue, lol. Why there and not the U District one as per usual?

  • 43 MillieMoore // Jan 4, 2010 at 2:34 pm

    Kay Canada totally digs you and there are at least 2 people who are extremely bummed you are not making an appearance in Canada aka the Great White North. (But more specifically Toronto, which for those of you who are unaware is in Ontario… Canada… Planet Earth… The Milky Way…) I`m begging here.

  • 44 Trish // Jan 5, 2010 at 2:39 pm

    Wicked awesome of you to get to Brookline – it’s close enough! (We Mainers think of Boston only as a mere extension of our own state!)

  • 45 Jevina // Jan 7, 2010 at 12:10 am

    No Georgia?

  • 46 Bryan J. // Jan 7, 2010 at 10:55 am

    I’d request a stop at the original Borders in Ann Arbor, MI, but every date that you’re in the region already has a stop. :(

  • 47 david // Jan 7, 2010 at 4:48 pm

    Atlanta! Pleeeeease….

  • 48 Jonathan // Jan 8, 2010 at 10:16 am

    Please come to Tampa FL on your book tour. Thanks, you’re the best!

  • 49 John Boyd // Jan 8, 2010 at 4:03 pm

    Olympia, Wa is right off the highway while you travel to Portland. Just in case you were wondering.

  • 50 donnithemighty // Jan 12, 2010 at 11:41 am

    Don’t forget about Texas!!!

  • 51 Adam // Jan 13, 2010 at 4:37 pm

    What about Canada?

  • 52 Adam // Jan 13, 2010 at 4:39 pm

    PS – April 11th is my birthday. Make a trip north of the border!

  • 53 ME // Jan 15, 2010 at 6:12 am

    Here’s another vote for Atlanta!

  • 54 Jeff Norman // Jan 15, 2010 at 12:55 pm

    I made it to BOTH of your stops in Texas (Austin – BookPeople) and (Houston-Borders) for your last book promotion (“Fool”). I can’t wait to see you again for “Bite Me”. You are a Texas kinda guy! (Don’t get sick this time – Stay Healthy!!!)

  • 55 Maggie // Jan 16, 2010 at 5:30 pm

    My husband and I love your books. We’d love to take you to lunch or dinner when you are in Naperville!

  • 56 Josh Rino // Jan 17, 2010 at 10:28 am


  • 57 Tim // Jan 18, 2010 at 9:37 am

    I’d love for you to come to South Carolina. I know there are only three of us here who actually read books, but there’s just SO MUCH to poke fun at!

  • 58 will cravens // Jan 20, 2010 at 11:15 am

    Christopher – Come to Texas!!!

  • 59 John // Jan 20, 2010 at 1:20 pm

    Will you be doing a European tour as well? if so, Please come to the Netherlands.

  • 60 Sandman // Jan 20, 2010 at 9:58 pm

    Aloha Christopher.
    It would really be nice if you would come to Hawaii. I’m in sunny Kona, which is best… but anywhere in Hawaii would be fine!!!

  • 61 Mark Sheehan // Jan 21, 2010 at 3:58 am

    Please come to Northampton,Ma.! I have a venue there and this small arts/college town (Smith College/UMASS/Mt.Holyoke) is filled with Christopher Moore fans!!! I’ll find you a bookstore if need be or just come here and we shall feed you, buy books and listen with fascination and awe!!!

  • 62 James // Jan 22, 2010 at 5:43 pm

    Come to Alabama.

    Well, the lower part. We’re nice down here. We don’t throw the Bible nearly as hard as our northern counterparts.

  • 63 SPC Madison // Jan 24, 2010 at 6:56 pm

    How can you end your book tour the day i am supposedly going to back from Afganistan? Couldnt you end the tour just a few days later in the Bay Area?

  • 64 Leah // Jan 25, 2010 at 12:27 am

    I live in OKC, and it would be awesome if you could come here! I would definitely travel to Dallas/Ft. Worth or Austin though if you could at least get that close! Can’t wait to read it!

  • 65 windy // Jan 25, 2010 at 11:06 am

    New York! Add a nearby stop at B&N in Westport, CT, or Borders in Fairfield, CT.

  • 66 Jarrod // Jan 26, 2010 at 11:25 pm

    Here is another vote for Texas. I don’t even care where, I’ll drive to whatever city it is.

  • 67 Heather // Jan 27, 2010 at 2:23 am

    Come to Saint Louis…it has a high crime rate and an arch…how can you resist?

  • 68 Kat-wena // Jan 27, 2010 at 10:46 am

    OK, so laugh all you want but I must ask, can you add Boise to your tour? if no, maybe Reno? if no, I WILL haul my cookies over to Portland!

  • 69 Kauai Girl // Jan 27, 2010 at 8:57 pm

    Maui? Kauai?

  • 70 Katharine // Jan 28, 2010 at 1:08 am

    Oh well – you are lucky you are so cute.

  • 71 Katharine // Jan 28, 2010 at 1:09 am

    Oh wait. Portland. Right on.

  • 72 HS writing teacher // Jan 28, 2010 at 10:41 am

    North Carolina is beautiful all year long, but Mother Nature really puts on a show in the spring. My creative writing students really want to meet you. Please consider coming.
    P.S. Kyle, a senior, loves zombies.

  • 73 Anne-Marie // Jan 28, 2010 at 5:53 pm

    No matter what you have heard- Kansas Citians do read! We’d love for you to stop here for a nibble. :o)

  • 74 Steve // Jan 28, 2010 at 7:14 pm

    Nebraska is a good place to live, but I wouldn’t want to visit. Skip us or suffer the consequences.

  • 75 Al // Jan 29, 2010 at 11:30 am

    Having taken the day off work, a couple friends and I are going to try and do both of the Chicago area visits (March 30th). If we’re not too drunk…or maybe even if we are. Either way, Chris: you want us to try and bring you some pizza at the evening signing session?

  • 76 Gary // Jan 29, 2010 at 3:43 pm


  • 77 Gizmogrl83 // Jan 30, 2010 at 7:26 am

    Yes!!!!! I can go straight from work to Paoli Pike. You friggin’ rock!

  • 78 Deb C // Jan 30, 2010 at 11:12 am

    I reall wish you’d come to Minneapolis. I’m a fan and if I could get the time off work I’d see you in chicago but I can’t :-(.

  • 79 Sue B // Jan 31, 2010 at 6:08 pm

    Ummmmm–another vote for a Michigan stop. Haven’t we suffered enough lately? In addition to having always wanted monkeys, we also love “Fool”-ish authors!

  • 80 Sandy // Feb 1, 2010 at 1:44 pm

    You’ve got a lot of fans here in St. Louis. Pleeeeeeeeeeze come!

  • 81 Jennifer // Feb 2, 2010 at 1:18 pm

    Lots of fans here in SACRAMENTO, CA!!! FOUR that I know of right here at my place of employment!

  • 82 SaxChuck // Feb 2, 2010 at 3:35 pm

    Please consider Minneapolis-I would even be okay going to St Paul! Love your work!

  • 83 Molly // Feb 2, 2010 at 6:30 pm

    Dallas or Austin would be fantastic, but New Orleans would be FANFREAKINTASTIC! Or Baton Rouge would be awesome too. Kiss kiss.

  • 84 Kori // Feb 4, 2010 at 7:05 pm

    You should add Kansas City to that list… Chicago is the closest thing on there and that is a little too far away for us!

  • 85 Zero // Feb 4, 2010 at 8:19 pm

    Your minion in Petaluma has had his socks officially rocked off by this tasty tome. Oh, yeah. I went there. Hordes of monkey zombies wearing fezzes await your books release.

  • 86 Riah // Feb 8, 2010 at 9:52 am

    I am so excited to see your two stops here in WA!! I will definately be stopping by one of them while you are here!!

  • 87 Emmily // Feb 8, 2010 at 11:29 am

    Dude i was there for the one last year in NY and even tho the wait is sucky… i got to take a picture with the one and only Christopher Moore… I am not missing this opportunity again 😀 April 3rd Here i COME!

  • 88 John // Feb 8, 2010 at 1:23 pm

    How about a stop in Las Vegas?

  • 89 the amazing jennie // Feb 8, 2010 at 2:50 pm

    Texas! We love you in Houston!

  • 90 travesti // Feb 9, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    yes, plz come to dallas/ftworth, even austin. otherwise i gotta spend 200 bucks to fly to denver!

  • 91 Brian D. Walton // Feb 10, 2010 at 1:33 pm

    Hey, I know you’ve got a stop in Milwaukee, but I totally second SaxChuck’s opinion, you should totally drop by in Minneapolis, although anywhere in MN would do. I mean, come on, Wisconsin? They don’t read there, do they?

  • 92 Joel Flores // Feb 10, 2010 at 6:49 pm

    Great! The South’s sterling reputation for being a bunch of tobacco chewing, illiterate, uneducated NASCAR watching buffoons has kept yet another scribe from considering a stop into the land of cotton and boiled peanuts for a chat and some insight on his latest work.

    Aren’t you due for a day at the beach, Mr. Moore? (Aren’t the one’s in San Diego too crowded?)

  • 93 Joel Flores // Feb 10, 2010 at 7:06 pm

    You know what? Screw Charleston, S.C. They don’t deserve your appearance…..however,
    Asheville, N.C.! Now there’s a town worth stopping for! Great river kayaking!!! Also great outside Shakespeare theatre!

  • 94 Micah // Feb 12, 2010 at 9:02 am

    see you in boston, buddy

  • 95 Hillary! // Feb 12, 2010 at 1:31 pm

    VROMAN’S! PASADENA! Why couldn’t you do LA again! I know how to get to LA! Pasadena is confusing! Or why couldn’t you do the IE! You’re publisher sucks. Or agent. Whoever it is that schedules these things. Oh well. I will do my best.

  • 96 Anisa // Feb 12, 2010 at 10:43 pm

    Yes but… but… what about CANADA?! We buy your books! We’d even love to meet you someday, you twisted, twisted dude! (I’m always telling people to buy your stuff, does that count for nothing? Boo! *cries*)

  • 97 Lee // Feb 13, 2010 at 10:33 pm

    Please come back to Houston Texas. We miss you!

  • 98 Robyn // Feb 14, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    Dear Mr. Moore,
    I know you hear this ALL the time, but my husband and I truly love your books. We are constantly, anxiously awaiting your next novel. I just wanted to ask why you haven’t returned to Cambria, CA? We currently live in Lemoore, CA which isn’t too long of a drive from Cambria. We love visitng there because it seems so nice and quiet…and there’s wine. We are already planning on driving to San Diego to see you at Mysterious Galaxy, which happens to be a bookstore we loved when we lived there as well! Can’t wait to see you and get a copy of your new book! -Robyn

  • 99 Sally Turner // Feb 15, 2010 at 12:00 pm

    I can’t really complain as we caught you in Decatur, GA for Fool (and the book store closed the following week so what does that say????Hmmm??) But as I get older I find that people are not doing exactly as I say so things are not going as smoothly as they should. You couldn’t have released the book a week earlier so I could buy it and take it to my sister who lives in the middle east now could you. The poor dear is going to be deprived until our next meeting in September or thereabouts… Too cruel….Of course if you want to send me a copy…The check will be in the mail…..

  • 100 Lori // Feb 15, 2010 at 6:08 pm

    I vote for a visit to south Florida. Please???

  • 101 Misse Bailes // Feb 15, 2010 at 11:01 pm

    Chris! I have recently introduced my younger sister to your fine, fine works. Please, please please make a trip to South Florida. We would love a chance to meet you in person.

    Also, my sister was down in the dumps for awhile, I decided she needed a good dose of Biff. You might get a laugh, but we take our books to the lake and I sit and read Lamb out loud to her… We have the special editions, which you know look like Bibles, so I make sure to pause when people walk by… I didn’t want the neighbors to think I’m possessed (talking about sex and saying expletives )while doing what looks like a bible study!

  • 102 G.J. // Feb 16, 2010 at 11:39 am

  • 107 Sadie // Feb 24, 2010 at 11:10 am

    Your appearance at the Bagdad Theater in Portland will probably sell-out. However, this is a pretty sneaky way of getting people to buy the hardcover edition of your book. I will take a pass but there are plenty of others willing to spend the money.

  • 108 Marin // Feb 24, 2010 at 11:11 am

    Awh rats. No LA this round, and the day you’re coming to reasonably close Pasadena is a day I can’t make it up there. Damn LA traffic.

    Hopefully I’ll have moved out of this damn town by the time the next book rolls around.

    I miss Kepler’s.

    Bitch. Moan. Whine.

  • 109 Olivia // Feb 24, 2010 at 11:12 am

  • 110 Mike Arenas // Feb 24, 2010 at 11:14 am

    Glad to see you will be in Pasadena,Ca..Wish you were going to be at the LA festival of books.

  • 111 The Only Toni // Feb 24, 2010 at 11:14 am

    I don’t think I can get up to Phoenix/Mesa on 3/27, but I surely wish I could. I totally LOVED the two books that each had the same scene from a different perspective. I’ve never seen this done before and I consider it to be pure genius – with a healthy dose of silly. Thanks for all your books and I appreciate being informed about upcoming new ones and events.

    Even though you haven’t responded to my brilliant (my opinion) suggestion for a book “Homer”, a narration by a broadcaster named Homer on the events of Troy; I will still buy and read your latest book. I will miss you in AZ as I leave there on the 25th (nice timing) but will have my son stalk you in Chicago for a signed copy. Pittsburgh would welcome you on your next tour, we don’t have archaic laws concerning sexual orientation or strigent pot laws so it would be a perfect stop for you in the Spring.
    Thanks for the ride,

    On behalf of a good percentage of Virginian’s, I apologize for our new asshat governor. I hadn’t heard about that law, but I’m not surprised. Women’s rights are out the door next. Complete asshat, I agree. Please come to Virginia anyway though. We’re not all bad…..

    Glad you are coming back to Kepler’s since I am too lazy to drive up to SF to see you. I wonder if the wacky lady who reprimanded you for writing about vampires when you were here for You Suck will be back. If not, I will try to say something wacky so you will feel at home.

    The bit about some of the book signings being pretty lengthy in time, and CM’s policy being signing all books presented to him (I still wonder if he would also sign books from other authors, though) is absolutely true.

    I just went to one of these, last year in Denver, and he stayed there signing books for hours. He was really nice when I got to pass him mine, some three hours later, and even answered some special petitions (sign a book insulting a friend) which makes me consider his patience not short Franciscan. In in shoes I would probably have sent everybody to hell, and then burned the join. Thanks Chris!

    Naper-fuckin-ville sweeeeeet! Jeez, ya got a lot canadian cryfuckdummies, see what happens when you give a developing nation the Olympics, suddenly they think their frickin Petaluma. (sorry had to throw that in, I went to Sonoma State University, just a dusty beer fart from Petaluma) I promise not to stalk you until you get to Naper-fuckin-ville, and talk about cities that practically mirror each other, with their pretentious little quaint downtown , matching gag, I mean gap stores, and of course a river that no one would be caught in. (at least not alive, I’m pretty sure while I was at SSU,they found a couple of bodies in the river that runs through town) and I know exactly where they found at least one body in the Dupage river that runs right out the turd cutter of downtown Naper-fuckin-ville, not that I had any thing to do with it, really, I just had this dream one night and BAM! three years later they find a body in the smagma filled cesspool they call a “beach” in the tiny hamlet (read that as 164,000 suv drivers_) see ya soon, probably sooner than later, but ya know eventually I will catch up with you, finally a chance to ….. ah fuck it, time to go take my meds, or else they wont let me out of here . Your greatest fan,ever, no really, ever…..

    leave it to powells to charge for a author signing. next time chris,pick a better bookseller…

  • 139 Dag // Feb 25, 2010 at 8:46 am

    @Gene Actually, I think what Powells is doing is brilliant. The ticket price includes the book, and it looks to be a discount off the jacket price (based on the hardback release for Fool, which was 26.99)… also, you’re not going to have as many of the dealer types who aren’t there to buy any books, just get their copy of Stupidest Angel signed (maybe you’re one of them, which is why you’re grumpy??). This is a good thing for Chris, the fans and the store. I would have absolutely no qualms about paying $24 for this if I were local to Powells.

    If you have never toured India, maybe you should. I’m living here in an ashram for a couple of years. I think I’m going to be helping teach English to a bunch of high school boys soon. While the ashram is obviously not going to want me having the kids read books with terms like “heinous fuckery”, I can certainly say who my favorite authors are. And most people here actually do speak English, more or less. The local bookstores carry more English titles than they do Hindi. Look into it, anyway.

  • 150 Gary // Feb 27, 2010 at 8:23 am

    I’m rather sad at reading this page. Only one or two genuine people happy to read that he has a tour, and the rest of you are complaining that he’s not coming to where you live. shut the hell up, this isn’t your pity party, its a celebration of a brilliant authors newest creation! Chris, hope you have a wonderful tour and that the weathers good. Be careful around the south because the weather has been a bit crazy lately. You should probably have some snow tires or something just in case, but since your probably going to be flying don’t worry about it too much. Other than that, thanks for the new book and I hope to read it soon!

  • 157 Shmimberly Sassypants // Mar 4, 2010 at 4:43 pm

    Hooray that there’s a new CM book, and even moreso that it’s a sequel to You Suck, (which happens to be my favorite). I think the people who are complaining about ticket cost from Powells should STFU. First of all, you get a signed book for the same cost as your ticket price, dumbasses. Second, the venue (Bagdad Theater) isn’t even owned by Powell’s, so Bagdad is either giving away the theater space for free, or Powell’s is absorbing it, given that, as I said before, $24 is about the price of a hardcover book. So do not further endorken yourselves to me with your whiining!

  • 158 Nelson // Mar 4, 2010 at 9:38 pm

  • 170 Lindsay // Mar 13, 2010 at 3:12 pm

    Vancouver, sir, is an EXCELLENT place to visit, as the Olympics have proven. Toronto, however, is a hole. Sorry to the Torontonians, but I dislike smog and enjoy mountain-fresh, slightly salted air. Plus, we’re more literate in more languages. Trust me, I live here — I’d know. My point, O Chris Moore? Visit us with your book and cease our unholy existence as “geographically unloved”.

  • 171 Stacey // Mar 17, 2010 at 7:33 am

    On your next book tour can you please come to Norfolk,Va or Newport News,Va or where more in Va so the people who live more towards NC dont have to drive along way to get to the DC one… pulse it would open up the NC people to you more. Pulse Norfolk,va has a lot of military people there.

    I’m close to finishing every book of yours so I am glad that “Bite Me” is being released soon! I can’t wait to finally meet you in person in Virginia and get my leather edition of Lamb signed. You’re works are an absolute joy to read, so please keep on doing what you do best which is making us all laugh!

    I can’t wait for Friday! I’ll need a personalized signing for sure. I emailed you almost 2 years ago and it made my day to receive a response. I’m sure I’ll make a giant ass out of myself Friday but who cares! =). Yippy!

  • 183 Mean Bookstore Girl // Mar 24, 2010 at 11:16 am

    As Mr. Moore says, he doesn’t get to pick, & I think the fact that he’s hitting sooooo many places just goes to show how much he wants to accomodate his fans!

    Also, he’s done his fair share of book-slinging from behind the counter, I do believe, so he’s knows about the book industry from almost every aspect.

    That being said, I have to take umbrage with the statement “If you don’t have a at least a dozen best-selling authors coming to your town every year, then you probably don’t have an event-oriented book store.” At least you said “probably!”

    I work at an event-oriented bookstore. We have 20+ events every month. We’ve hosted big authors as well as local authors, and everything inbetween.

    The big authors are few & far between– not because we can’t host an event, or lack of interest in the community (we had 400 people come out for Danny Bonaduce, of all people, and Anthony Bourdain is coming to town soon) but because of two sad facts:
    ~1) we’re an Indy bookstore with both a B&N and a Borders less than 10 miles away (they don’t get as many big authors as their brother & sister stores, but they get more than us!)
    ~and 2) NOBODY likes coming to Bakersfield (it’s hot, it has a wierd mix of literate ambivalence & illiterate passion, the air is HORRIBLE…)

    Our town is conveniently between the I-5 and 99 freeways and we’re about two hours from LA, so appearances can easily be made on the way to San Fran from LA, or vice versa. Sometimes, it isn’t about the lack of event-oriented, hard-working bookstores, it is just about the perception of a place.

  • 184 Lindsey W. // Mar 24, 2010 at 2:11 pm

    So excited that you are coming to a town near me! And I don’t even have to drive all the way to Chicago. Even though I would. Hurray!

  • 185 Deborah S. // Mar 24, 2010 at 6:14 pm

    How wonderful that you are touring. I hope to be able to come see you in Pasadena on April 9th. I was so elated to find a new book! I am reading the last one of yours in my collection and was starting to panic. You know how you become attached to authors and then there are no more books left to read on their list? I was introduced to your books not that long ago, and have been so taken with your storytelling. Also very pleased to see you know Carmel and Maui very well. It’s fun to read about places that are familiar haunts. I think Longe’s restaurant has an ‘h’ in the name though (Longhe’s) from Fluke. Anyway, all the best and congratulations on your new book! Cheers, Debbie

So, how ever did you come up with the idea for “whaley boys” anyway? Did you see a homeless man on the streets of San Francisco with a sign about his absolutely humongous whaley boy?

    So pumped that you’re coming to Ontario! Your books have been the gifts I give for Christmas for years! See ya next week!

    I am SO excited you are coming to Waterloo! Your books got me through my English Literature degree! See you in K-W!

    Consider this one moore (sic) for Austin, Texas. I understand time constraints, and it seems you use good methods to determine how you make your tours. That makes this whole thing slightly less fulfilling, but I did manage to pick up a signed first edition (That I promptly damaged so no one would steal) from book people, so I will have to take that as some consolation. From this point on I vow to write you so much mail your poor location selecting algorithm has no choice but to spit out ATX.

    I am so glad you will be in Corte Madera at Book Passage, and Copperfields in Petaluma, it will be a double opportunity and that you are so close and then right in my home town is the best birthday present ever!

    Thank you again for coming to Portland. Wasn’t the Bagdad Theater the coolest place ever for a CM event? And not just for the beer. You made my YEAR by recognizing me from previous signings in Portland. I might be your Portland stalker, but not in a scary, I want to hold you captive in my basement until you write a sequel to A Dirty Job sorta way. Altho I really want to read about how Rivera deals with his new career!

  • 209 The One Who Wanted to Have Your Babies // Apr 14, 2010 at 7:41 pm

    Dear Mr. Moore,

    I met you in San Diego. Unfortunately, my snarky boyfriend thought it would be oh-so-hilarious to tell your “handler” that I wanted to have your babies. Which was true. In a purely admirational sense. I appreciate that you didn’t kick me out immediately on grounds of fanaticism. But in retrospect, it seems a little extreme to eject a mute girl from the party, as I found myself mostly unable to speak during our brief meeting. I will say, however that I excelled with MENSA-like excellence at the smile/nod/giggle.

    I didn’t get a chance to say it at the time (due to the aforementioned lack of speech), but I was moving back to Michigan on Sunday, and I had planned on leaving Saturday morning from California until I saw your tour dates in San Diego. Thanks for a lovely parting gift. Your advice about rewriting and finishing my novel will undoubtably prove invaluable. If I can get past chapter three.

    Thanks again, and keep the brilliant words coming.

    I just wanted to thank you for visiting us “North” Americans. It was a great birthday present for me to get you to come to my hometown. Awesome. Just though you should know that making trips to these smaller venues is worth it. We love you in Canada. Please keep on writing – want to hear that Rivera story!

  • 211 Alex // Apr 28, 2010 at 1:32 pm

    I really wish you would come to Texas!

  • 212 Michelle // Jun 21, 2010 at 6:22 am

    Please come to North Carolina! I adore your books!

  • 213 al troutman // Jul 9, 2010 at 6:03 pm

    I too vote for NC. Asheville is welcoming and has replaced sedona as the vortex of the universe. Tom Robbins came to Sylva and 500 people showed up. We have moonshine, crunchy buds and beutifull women. You can’t throw a crystal without hittin a homosexual massage therapist with a trust fund

  • 214 Devon Riggs // Aug 5, 2010 at 3:55 pm

    There is a HUGE following of your work Mr. Moore here in Long Beach, CA. Bring the Book Tour down here. =P

  • 215 Arle Are // Sep 17, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    Other places want you, but Oklahoma is 99.9 % dull, so we NEED you. North Texas would also be OK.

  • 216 Kate Thornborough // Oct 12, 2010 at 3:25 pm

    Please come to Madison!!! Please please please!!!

    so i read 2 books throughout grade school…ok maybe it was 1…thank god (take offense) for Cliff Notes. anywho, a friend who shall remain nameless recommended a Moore novel in lieu of my mindless reading of car magazines. so i figure why not…a bunch of pieces of paper with a dog (coyote dingo whatever) on the cover indulging in one of my less healthy hobbies is worth a shot right? (and the requisite cigarette)….talk about life altering experiences. maybe it was my public school education. or general lack of interest of any publication with no pictures but thank you thank you thank you Mr. Moore for showing me that the written word can be coaxed into wonderful things whose only boundaries are whatever the eff you want them to be. keep up the beautifully twisted work. -an unexpected fan

    I’m a P.E.I. boy (aged 62) working in Saskatoon. I’ve read only 3 of your books but have narrated them to my co-workers chapter by chapter after they’ve listened to me LOL in the lunch room.
    Keep up the excellent word smithing.
