Scott Sigler, best selling author of Infected and one of the pioneers of podcasting books direct to his audience is planning a book tour/tailgate of a different stripe for his mainstream release of his novel The Rookie. His plan is to stop in a number of cities on his way home after Dragon Con in Atlanta and the Birmingham/Tuscaloosa area is first up. He is only going to stop if he can get enough people to confirm for the event.
The event will be held in a family friendly sports bar with a short reading, a discussion and then grab a bite to eat with Pope Siglericus XXX.
If you are not familiar with Scott's work, you can download free podcasts of his work from Itunes and the library has copies of Infected and Contagious for checkout.
Scott writes techno-horror and his novels will drag you in and I have not been able to put down any one of the ones I have read.
