Ashland Creek Press authors on tour

It’s been a busy year for our authors, and we’re always glad to be able to post updates from their book tours. Check out our Facebook page as well as our events page for regular updates — and here are a few highlights from what our authors have been up to in 2012 …

John Colman Wood, whose novel The Names of Things was published in April, toured both East and West coasts over the summer, including a fabulous reading at the Ashland Public Library before he headed to Portland and Seattle.

Also this summer, Cher Fischer, author of the eco-mystery Falling Into Green, had her book launch party at Pages bookstore in Manhattan Beach.

Among other events, Cher also moderated a panel on ecopsychology at a sustainability event at Ford Motor Company (her protagonist, Ez, drives a Ford hybrid — naturally, this was a great fit).

This fall, Mindy Mejia has been busy with bookstore and library events for her novel The Dragon Keeper, beginning with a launch party at Magers & Quinn Booksellers in Minneapolis.

And Olivia Chadha is also having a busy autumn with events for Balance of Fragile Things, beginning with a reading at the Boulder Book Store in Boulder, Colorado.

And many authors are, of course, chatting about their books virtually — so if you can’t join them in person, join them online! Visit their author pages on the Ashland Creek Press website for directions to their websites and blogs, and be sure to check out the I Write Because project, where you’ll find short essays on writing from John Wood, Mindy MejiaOlivia Chadha, and JoeAnn Hart (whose novel FLOAT is forthcoming in February).
