The Kaufmann Summer Tour

It's going to be a busy summer, folks, so I thought I'd put together this handy schedule. It's not really a tour tour--I define tours by the presence of a bus, and Vince Neil--but I'm calling it the Kaufmann Summer Tour because that sounds catchier on a t-shirt than the Kaufmann Schedule of Summer Appearances. And you never know when something's going to show up on a t-shirt!

Saturday, July 9
Thrillerfest, Grand Hyatt, New York City
One night only! Chasing the Dragon is up for a 2011 Thriller Award, and I'll be at the awards banquet Saturday night.

Thursday, July 14 - Sunday, July 17
Readercon, Burlington Marriott, Burlington, Massachussetts
After swinging by the convention for an afternoon a few years back, this will be my first time attending Readercon for real. Chasing the Dragon is up for a Shirley Jackson Award, a literary award presented there annually.

Monday, July 18
KGB Bar, New York City
Dark Visions: An Evening of Horror, featuring me, John Langan, Livia Llewellyn, and Chesya Burke. This is sure to be a can't-miss event. Also, we'll be raffling off valuable prizes!

Thursday, July 21 - Sunday, July 24
NECon, Roger Williams University Conference Center, Bristol, Rhode Island
My eleventh year attending this laid-back "summer camp for writers." Here's hoping they don't put me on the 9 AM Saturday morning panel again. Or pelt me with superballs again. Wait, can someone tell me why I keep going back there...?

I'll be sure to continue updating the tour schedule as more develops.
