Judgement call - we're rescheduling the Naperville signing due to inclement weather. The event is not going to happen tonight and I'm so very sorry.
Here's the thing - there's no upside to me making this call. I don't get a Gold Star in the Big Book of Awesome for disappointing everyone. I don't make the bookstore happy by seeming like a total flake. I'm not delighting my publisher by not being there to facilitate the sale of books. And I hate the idea of having let anyone down, especially considering how much I love doing in-store events.
There are no winners in this situation.
Yet given the current weather and the ominous predictions for later today all over the metro area, I can't in good conscience ask anyone to risk their lives behind the wheel to hear me talk about mean girls, time travel, and Whitesnake.
I'll have more details on the whens, wheres, and hows of rescheduling shortly.
But for now, I wanted to let you know about tonight and to apologize again.
I'll see you soon!
