The Book Babes have just successfully completed the first leg of their "Between the Covers" book tour in the Tampa Bay area (where Book Babe Margo Hammond resides). Thanks to all those who came out for our events. Now it's on to the West Coast (home of Book Babe Ellen Heltzel) where, once again, readers will be able to buy a pre-publication copy of "Between the Covers: The Book Babes' Guide to a Woman's Reading Pleasures"
The official publication date given in a previous blog was incorrect. The book will be published by Da Capo Press (part of the Perseus Group) on November 15 , the final day of the Portland, Seattle and San Francisco leg of Book Babes' tour. Books have been and will be available at all the Babes' appearances, thanks to the hard work of Da Capo, which has been arranging for copies to be shipped to the signing sites directly from the warehouse. So, if you are in any of these three Western cities in November, come early and get a pre-pub, signed copy!
Also, check out the nearly full-page spread the Babes' got in More magazine's November issue (page 38). Book tours are better than Botox!
