The ASHFALL Tour Shoots Pumpkins from a Trebuchet

I'm off to Ohio tomorrow. Part of this leg of the tour will include a stop at my brother's farm near Yellow Springs, Ohio. Stop by and see the real farm that inspired Alex's uncle's place in ASHFALL. You can meet the real Max, Anna, Uncle Paul and Aunt Caroline, too. If you bring an old pumpkin or potato, we'll turn it into a ballistic projectile with my brother's trebuchet or Max's potato cannon.

I'll be doing my usual taekwondo demo at all my stops (breaking concrete blocks with my bare hands) in addition to the pumpkin-killing fun. Anyway, here's the schedule:

Blog Tour Winners

I've been on the road for the last two weeks on a physical tour for ASHFALL and sadly neglecting my blog tour. Sorry about that. Anyway, here are the winners for week three, week four, and the international giveaway:

Week 3 -- we had 82 comments and my trusty D&D dice rolled a 04. Congrats to Cassy -- I've emailed you to get your address.

Week 4 -- we had 19 comments and I rolled a 7. Congrats to Britney -- I just sent you an email.

International -- on the whole blog tour, there were 16 comments labeled international, and I rolled a 16. Congrats to Mary! Check your email.

Thanks especially to Teen Book Scene and all the bloggers and readers who participated. If I were made of money, I'd send you all a signed copy of ASHFALL. Sadly, you'll have to settle for my gratitude instead. Thank you!
