2009 US Tour

Saturday, January 24th, 2009

It seemed like such a long time. Yet now it’s only a month till Sonata for Miriam will be published in the US. And suddenly I am very anxious. Somehow it feels very different from the first novel and the first tour. I suppose that when you are completely ignorant you don’t worry. With experience come expectations – your own and those of others. Self consiousness.

Now that the itinerary is before me the tour has taken on a sense of reality. It’s time to get my head around what to do, what to say. And to pray for a kind reception of the book…

Here is the schedule of appearances. Minor changes may still happen.
