UDATED! FREAKING. OUT.

This is supposed to be a post about how awesome sharks are but I can’t even do it because OHMYGODYOUGUYSMYBOOKISHERE.  And MY AUDIO BOOK TOO.  Sorry for all the screaming but I just got the final, hardback version that comes out next month and then I screamed a little because this is a decade in the making and also because OHMYGODYOUGUYS it comes out next month.

Sorry.  I’m geeking out in an incredibly embarrassing fashion but I can’t help it and you’ve been with me through this entire process so I want to celebrate with you.

So to celebrate I’m giving away an autographed copy of my book and of the audiobook too.  Just leave a comment and this week one of you will be randomly selected to win this:

Not the cat butt. That's mine.

And in related, panic-inducing news, I’m going on tour.  Much like Bon Jovi.  Or like artifacts from terrible disasters.

Details below! (Graphic courtesy of my amazing friend, Len):

Click on the graphic for details and ticket info. More locations might be coming soon. I'll keep you posted.

Come?  Pretty please?

UPDATED:  WE have a winner!  Leigh-Ellen of Canada, a book is on its way to you.  And a huge thank you for such an amazing show of support.  I so love you guys.

    I apologize in advance if I win the book and still won’t loan out the book I pre-ordered because everyone needs to have their own to keep. And the audio book, too. Condolences to those who have the Kindle version without the cover mouse. Why would there be no cover mouse in the Kindle version? If my memory were better I would certainly worry about that a bit.

    Happy Trails!

    If you cloned yourself so you did not have to continue your tour when you get tired of it, your clone would probably be the one not to tour. And then the second clone would keep that clone company in your real life. So just put that out of your mind.

  505. While I recognize that I live in the ass-end of nowhere, I’d LOVE it if you came to Lafayette, Indiana. You could howl at the moon with the wolves here. (I’m serious). You could…um, I’m out. That’s about the only interesting thing we do here, unless you’re into small-time college football or chain restaurants. (I’ll also point out that the howling at the moon thing was all my mother could focus on when we told her we were moving here and supported her fear that midwesterners eat their young. Even though wolves don’t, as far as I understand it. I’m really not a wolfologist, even though I live in such close proximity to groups of people who regularly go howl with them. In any case, I’m not sure that Mom’s fear was entirely rational.)

    Looking back over what I’ve written so far, I don’t think I’ve done a great job of selling you on a stop in Lafayette. But anywhere in the midwest that’s within a 4-5 hour drive would be awesome. And I speed, so that opens the radius somewhat.

    Aww – no cat butt?

    Seriously though, a chance for a signed copy? Yes, please.🙂 I don’t have a lot of signed author stuff, but it would be in good company with my signed Neil Gaiman poster from CBLDF.

    Congrats! I can see Ferris Mewler is preparing a little party of his own. As soon as your back is turned, he’s going to sit on that book.

    Books must be the cushiest, most awesome thing ever to a cat butt. Better than pillows, better than the top of an old-style TV. I have four cats. If I leave a book on any flat surface, I will see a cat sitting on it within the hour. Sometimes they fight over it.

    So one day I tried sitting on a book. I picked a bigger book – one of those coffee table books – because I have a bigger butt. Honestly, I don’t see the appeal. It’s probably one of those ways that cats are smarter than us.

    I’ve preordered your book and I just can’t wait.

  776. Congratulations. I too have written a book, an audio book and a comic book. But unlike you Jenny, I am greedy and do not like to share. Although, I do go on tour. OK, it’s more a vacationing since I have to pay for it myself and I HAVE to take my wife along. Commitment!! Errr! I will be reading to myself every night before I cry myself to sleep.

    Good luck to you on your book tour. If you come to Washington D.C., I could give you a tour or the district and all of its history. But only the dirty, scary, nasty places.
