Infinite Sky goes on US tour!

Last week, Infinite Sky came out in the USA, which was pretty exciting.



But perhaps even more exciting is that I'm going on a book tour in the States next month. It will be the first time I have crossed the Atlantic, and I am so happy to going as a published author.

Not all of the details are confirmed yet, but the Californian stretch is, so I shall tell you about that. I will be touring with three other Simon and Schuster authors: Sarah Ockler, Suzanne Young and Jody Casella.

I can't wait to meet my fellow tourers, and hope we will bond to the extent of getting matching tattoos on the backs of our necks during our time together. Or maybe, just swap numbers...

Come back to find more about them, as I will be interviewing each of them in the weeks leading up to the tour. Also, I will be running a competition, giving away a free copy of the U.S. version of Infinite Sky, so don't miss that.

Here are the dates and times of the tour dates so far:

  1. As you very well know, or as many others have told you I guess, your last name, 'Doktorski' is quite funny - are you a doctor with an Animal House funny bone? I can't wait to have you in Seventh-Heaven to tokwithyoo.

    High, girl!
    While I realize my penname is quite morbid, yet,
    you shall find in our blogs a lotta (subliminal) moxie
    which has taken this sinfull mortal yeeeeers to compile:
    I lay it ALL out for you, dear, with All-Star-Oxygems:

    Wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
    of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
    An XtraXcitinXpose with no
    zooillogical-expiration-date?
    An IQ much higher than K2?
    An extraordinarily, anti-establishment victory
    with a sardonic, satirical wit Who’s savvy??
    Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
    (with a most excellent detector of bull§ht):

    “Faith, hope, and love,
    the greatest of these is love -
    jump into faith...
    and you'll see with love”
    Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
    God believes in you.

    Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
    from a passionate, lucrative iconoclasm where you’ll find
    nonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsX…
    of deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.

    Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big House Upstairs.

  3. C.J. Flood is the real deal, and INFINITE SKY is, in my prediction, destined to become a modern classic. Read this book.
