I announced on the Pure Textuality PR Blog a few weeks ago that I was stepping away from The Novel Experience and Authors After Dark. Well, ladies and gents, I am sorry to report that my stepping away includes my role as an author. However, as of right now, I’m only doing one signing next year. Rock & Read in Las Vegas!
I am uberexcited about this signing! It’s shaping up to be a huge event. I’ll finally get to meet a LOT of authors, models, and photographers I’m friends with on Facebook, which will be awesome, but more importantly, I am STUPID EXCITED about meeting all of you!!!
I’m compiling all the info I can here for you, along with some tips for traveling out to Vegas on the CHEAP. This will be my 7th time going out to Vegas in the last four years, and I am a travel ninja!

Travel Ninja Tips
There is no reason on this rock to pay out the nose for travel expenses! In the last four years, I’ve traveled to the west coast six times. In total, my trips averaged about $500 each and that includes round trip airfare.
Here are a few quick travel tips to make your cons a little more wallet-friendly:
- If you’re flying, book your tickets/hotel on a Wednesday. All the travel package sites (i.e. Travelocity, Kayak, Priceline, etc., etc..) have cheaper pricing on Wednesdays.
- If possible, schedule your trip to be flying out on a Wednesday and back in that following Tuesday. These are the cheapest days to fly. Shift your trip in either direction, or shorten it up closer to the weekend, and watch your price quotes soar. Also, put something out to your readers that you’ll be in town a little longer than just the event and organize a get together that’s all about you and/or your books! This is a great way to really get some bonding time with your readers. Earlier this year, I had a book signing in Las Vegas and I organized a night out to see Thunder From Down Under. We had soooooo much fun and I will never forget those readers as long as I live! Or the strippers. The strippers were pretty awesome.
- Compare pricing at different airports in the region of where you’re traveling to. If you have a signing in Phoenix, fly into Vegas, then get a rental car and drive into Phoenix. Trust me, this works out way cheaper than flying directly into Phoenix EVERY DAMN TIME.
- If you’re ever having trouble making your trip cheap, email me firstname.lastname@example.org as I’m a TRAVEL NINJA! I make Travelocity my bitch.
That’s everything for now. I really hope to see some of you there! 🙂
