Two “Survival Guide” Events

I now have the first two events scheduled for my Autism Mom’s Survival Guide book tour: Sat., April 3, 2pm, Gibson’s Book Store, Concord NH; and Sat. April 17, 2pm., Borders in Chestnut Hill, Mass. If you have a special needs/autism group that wants to sponsor an event with a bookstore near you, let me know and I’ll put you in touch with my publicist. This is usually how I do these things; an autism conference brings me out to wherever and partners with the local bookstore. (For Making Peace With Autism, I’ve been to Minnesota, Wisconsin, Wyoming, Toronto, Ohio, Pennsylvania, NJ, NYC, CT…) You can see the kinds of events I’ve had right here in my site.

At the Gibson’s event in New Hampshire, I will also have a special guest; here is his press info: “Matthew McNown, the author of the young adult fantasy book, DANAR, which came out in August. Matt is a unique 21 year old boy with autism living in Durham, NH. What is extraordinary about him is that, as someone on the autism spectrum, he has not only worked to conquer his grasp on this realm but has created a whole new one with the characters in his book.”

Also, if you have contributed to the book, I would be especially interested in having you stand with me during the book talk and participate in the discussion.


Oh it's all so REAL now, isn't it??!!!!! How fantastic. I am so thrilled for you!

I would dearly love to have you come down to our support group in Philly! I'll talk with my gals in the group and see what we can do.

Very exciting. Congrats again Susan, the autism world needs a book like this.

Penny, it's very likely I'll come to Philly. I went to school there and I have friends I could stay with. Last time I gave a reading at the Writer's House at Penn. If you have a group that could pay for the train, then it could happen.

Oh the train to Philly is most definately in your future! I was thinking of calling our local Borders and partnering our local support group with them. I also went to Penn and I can call the Writers House there too. I'll chat with you about it all off-the-blog, through email.
Thanks! And my home is open to you for staying with, I hope you know that. :0)

Oh I can't wait to get it!! You are a fantastic writer! I wish I could come to one of your events…if we only lived on the east coast 🙁

I'll be there (in Concord, NH). Hope I can buy a book, reconnect, and get an autograph from an awesome woman!
