Hello Amanda, is there going to be music involved in this next tour??”
YES, indeed there is, and thank you for asking. i’ve been meaning to clarify.
every book-concert tour date is going to have a piano (which I will play), a ukulele (which i will attempt to play) and i’m also going to be chatting with the audience and with a special guest in every city. the idea is partly to promote the book…but also to play music, which is (we forget sometimes) what i actually *do*. i have a handful of new songs i’ll be playing. they’re frighteningly personal, which makes me scared to play them, which is always good. and i’ll probably come up with some crazy last-minute shit to do that is going to confuse everybody, because that’s just how i roll. i may re-enact the “bathroom confessional”, a stunt i very much enjoyed during tours past when i asked people to meet me in the bathroom stalls for private chats.
almost every special guest has been announced….here’s the list so far:
Nov 10 – boston, Porter Square Books MIDNIGHT BOOK SIGNING!!!

all the tour dates are on sale HERE, some are almost sold out, some have a fair number of tickets left because the venues are giant:
i’ll be signing books (which will be for sale) at ALL THE shows. i will stay at the venue as long as it takes to sign every book. and that’s the way-low down.
this is, no shit, my piano work-studio for the next month while I write the songs for #TheBedShow musical. perfect life is perfect. now to get a lamp and a heater….
