So, unless you've been living under a chunk of rock candy (this might not be such a bad thing, actually), you probably know that possibly the sweetest book ever to be published is coming out this fall: CakeSpy Presents Sweet Treats for a Sugar-Filled Life (oh, and you can click on that hyperlink to pre-order, if you'd like).
And--even better--I am coming to a city near you on a book tour. But aside from a couple of exceptions, the tour will take place not at bookstores--but at BAKERIES! That's right. OMG. And so that's why we're calling it Tour De Sweet! Basically, we're going to hang out, eat baked goods, and then you will buy like 30 copies of my book (Official Tour de Sweet Promise: I promise to sign and draw a unicorn, cupcake, and/or robot in each and every copy of my book you buy).
Sweet disclaimer: Now. These dates and times may shift slightly, so be sure to check back closer to the events!
