One part book tour, one part speed-blur

This is the part of the Willow Frost Tour where everything becomes a blurry carousel of bookstores, fans, libraries, readers, airports, and hotels. Probably because of the Nyquil (due to a cold I caught while in the Bay Area. I didn't leave my heart in San Francisco, it feels more like part of a lung...)

Aside from that, all is well as I'm home for a brief respite before launching into the coup de grâce of my tour with stops in Tampa, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Connecticut. (And not far off, Italy and Norway!) In the meantime, here are some postcard memories from the road.

In Detroit with authors Alice McDermott and Sara Paretsky.Motown. Just five authors and 1,300 of our closest friends.

 Another day, another three-, four-, five interviews.Author dinner in Missoula with Claire Vaye Watkins.The tiniest autograph book. Also doubles as an earring. Watermelon soup with family in San Francisco.

I am an Italian reader, I live in Rome... I just finished reading the story of Henry and Keiko, in Italy the title is: "Il gusto proibito dello zenzero".
I'm excited and surprised by the romance and the piece of American history that I discovered thanks to your book.
In Italy even more this history informations is not available...
I've just two question for you:
you will never come to Rome to talk about the book?
do you think that will ever filmed a movie about your book?
I would be very happy....

Thank you for what you have given us with your book and congratulations!!
