Over the next four months AJ, Melissa, Dino, Jerome and myself will be conducting a six continent book tour for The Life and Times of a Remarkable Misfit.
We will be running all over the world, meeting misfits in their own hometowns because we want to celebrate the launch of The Life and Times of a Remarkable Misfit with the people that helped make it happen. That’s you.
Six continents? Wtf??!
Every time we end up in a room with fellow misfits, magical things happen. AJ and Melissa have already been hit up a bunch of times by misfits in various places across the world offering to host book tour events for The Life and Times of a Remarkable Misfit in their towns and cities. One of which will be an exhibition of pieces that local artists have created in reaction to the Life and Times of a Remarkable Misfit. We had already planned to stop by and share drinks and chats with these people and their local communities but we thought “why not throw it wide open to the whole merry lot of you and make this into a really big party?”
We could launch this book with one big, glitzy party at some swanky restaurant in New York. But, as I’m sure you already know, that’s not really our style. Instead, we want to come and meet YOU in YOUR town, city, village, hamlet or underground bunker and meet the misfits in your life. In essence, this will be members of our community hosting a series of small, handcrafted events with a handful of people who will really get it. Why launch your book to a load of strangers when you can launch it to bona fide misfits?
We know that there are unique and beautiful towns and cities in every corner of the world that are bursting with creative and vibrant misfit communities, and that is where we want to stop on this book tour. Misfit towns ONLY (or misfit neighborhoods in big cities)!
The Nitty Gritty….
The launch of The Life and Times of a Remarkable Misfit Intergalactic Book Tour will be held in Africa on August 16, on AJ’s 31st birthday, which also happens to be the first year anniversary of Pursuit of Everything (can you believe it’s only been a year??!).
From there, AJ and Melissa will be flying to Australia to speak at a fundraising conference in Sydney in the first week of September, and following that, all the Misfits will be flying to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for our second ever Misfit Summit (eeeek!).
After Kuala Lumpur - AJ, Melissa and I will fly to Europe, grab ourselves an interrail pass and head out on a two-week whistle stop tour to meet as many European misfits as we can before heading to my motherland - Blighty. From October 1 to October 24 shooting all around the beautiful British isles cramming in as many crazy book tour events as possible.
After the UK, we will be flying back across the pond to begin our North and South American leg of this whirlwind book tour which will span most of November and December. And possibly some of January. Phew!
Roll up, roll up!
If you would like to be a part of our Intergalactic Book Tour and host a Life & Times of a Remarkable Misfit book event in your town, please take note of when we are going to be on your continent and sign up to this form.
We will be accepting book event locations until July 30 so that I can finalize our route. If you’re interested, please hit up the form in the next couple of weeks - we want to meet as many of you as is physically possible over the next five months.
