Gearing up for the Teardrop Tour

Today I’m packing for the Teardrop tour! We’ll be on the road for seven weeks and I can’t wait to see your familiar faces and meet new readers along the way. Most of all, I can’t wait to talk Teardrop with you. I’m practicing the readings I’ll perform at my events and trying to figure out how to fit all my clothes in one suitcase (impossible??). Our first stop is one of my favorite cities–sultry Miami–with a fantastic launch event at the B&N in Pembroke Pines. For anyone who hasn’t seen it, the full tour calendar is also listed below. Please come out and get your Teardrop signed!

I will just have to be patient & wait for the release date. I wish you were coming to Alabama on your tour but I didn’t see any dates here. Have a wonderful & safe tour.

  4. Nooooo! I missed you in Louisiana! Next time, you should come to New Iberia! And on a side note, I’d like to thank you, Lauren Kate, for Teardrops’ amazing description of the south! I grew up in New Iberia, and I loved how accurate you were, with the setting, historical happenings, even last names! You depicted the small town so pleasantly, as it is, of course! Regardless of setting though, this was such a great book. ThankyouThankyou! <3
