    1. That would a great! Perhaps next year. We have requests for Honolulu & Melbourne too. The second Bruno book, The Replacements, comes out in early 2015. Hoping to have a longer/bigger book tour for that one. Thanks for the note, Marti. We’re also in the planning stages for a “virtual book tour” where we could beam in via the Internet to chat with your favorite book group. Round up your book-reading pals!


  1. This was from 2014 I see, but now that I’m in Arkansas, I agree Dave, you should come here. We could laugh about the old Inland Empire Days!!!
