The Roc Fantastic West Coast Tour!

Our plans have finally come together, and we’re taking it on the road. . .I’m doing a series of readings and signing in independent bookstores on the West Coast with Mindy Klasky and Carol Berg in June.


Carol Berg, Leah Cutter, and Mindy L. Klasky, will conduct readings and autograph their award-winning, best-selling fantasy novels in six West Coast cities this summer. The authors’ combined fourteen novels have been published by Roc Books, an imprint of Penguin Books. The three novelists will tour as “Roc Fantastic.”

Berg, Cutter, and Klasky will conduct seven readings. They will appear at the following locations:

  • Book Soup in Los Angeles (June 18)
  • Mysterious Galaxy in San Diego (June 19)
  • Another Change of Hobbit in Berkeley (June 20)
  • Borderlands Books in San Francisco (June 21)
  • Powells City of Books in Portland (June 24)
  • Elliott Bay Book Company in Seattle (June 25)
  • University Bookstore in Seattle (June 26.)

Venues for the tour were selected in part by the authors’ interest in and love of independent bookstores.

Carol Berg is a retired software engineer, living and writing in Colorado. Leah Cutter is a technical writer, living and working in Wyoming. Mindy L. Klasky is an attorney and librarian living and working in Washington, DC.

Isn’t that cool? I’m really looking forward to this tour, to spending time hanging out and chatting with Carol and Mindy, doing the readings, driving up highway 1. . .It should be a blast.

So if any of ya’ll going to be around? Wanna meet up? Just let me know. . .

I’ll post more details, like times and addresses of the stores and such when I get them.

    • Thanks! I’m really looking forward to it.

      Although – I just realized the downfall of a tour like this. We’re going to *bookstores*. Almost every day. I’m going to need to bring a second piece of luggage, aren’t I?

    • Re: Um, are you not privy to this information?

      Tom had sent me private email, but due to the way he’d phrased it I was unsure whether this was a done deal or if it was still possible for them to stick around for a while.

      Do you think you could either repost this (I can email you the clean HTML) or post a link to this post in that community? I’m not really in the bay area anymore, and so announcements of SF happenings there really aren’t appropriate for me.

      Thanks.

      And yes! It would be good to see you and BZ. Right now we’re scheduled to be there for a couple of days. We have tentative plans for a party at a friend’s house near Golden Gate Park – she wants to feed me, and she has lots of space. . . .so we’ll see.

    • Re: Um, are you not privy to this information?

      I’d somehow missed the post on sfba_sf_fans, so I am very sad to learn of the (likely?) demise of TOCOH.

      Earlier this year, Cupertino lost an independent bookstore with a large SF section (much of which Borderlands bought up).

      I will remind those folks that Berkeley still has Dark Carnival for as long as we can collectively keep them in business. And they do mail order for folks out of state.

        I suggested Dark Carnival as an alternative. Still waiting to hear back. . .
