I'm doing it! Thanks to the encouragement of friend and author, Robin DeJarnett, I'm going back to where it all began and heading to Eastern Illinois University for Homecoming Weekend!!! In case you didn't know, EIU is the inspiration behind the CIU campus in Three Daves. It's going to be surreal to be back there, because while I was dancing the night away at Romans nights and grabbing a beer with friends at Ike's, I had no idea that what I was actually doing was "research" for an 80s chick-lit/romance I would one day write. Seriously, I was studying finance; no one could've foreseen this.
So I've booked a room at the lovely Super 8, arranged to do a book signing at the Panther Scholarship Scramble, and cajoled two girlfriends, also EIU alumn, into joining me on October 22. Fun, fun, FUN!
In addition to a little postcard distribution and making new EIU memories, my mission will be to snap photos of places that get a mention in the book so I can share them with you. I wonder how many Daves we can find...
If any of you have any advice on other promo-related things I should try to accomplish on my road trip, I'm all ears.
