My QUACKERY Tour, and the talk on CPAN's BookTV!

Well, my book tour for QUACKERY is finally over! I had a wonderful few weeks visiting Boston, Miami, Chicago, Austin, Denver, Cincinnati, Omaha, and Baltimore. I was able to see lots of friends, make some new ones, and meet lots of new readers. It was exhausting but wonderful.

Four different trips, and over fifteen flights! I saw a lot of beautiful sky.

The lovely Alyson McCandless in Chicago! 

U Miami medical students who learned some medical history that night. 

Dr. Hasan, a sweet friend from medical school. This was at Denver's BookBar!

I did a podcast with Dan Rodricks podcast, Roughly Speaking. Listen here.

The Cincinnati Books by the Bank festival

Signing this gorgeous poster at the Bookworm Omaha!

While I was in Chicago, John Green was at my hotel. Cool.

A talented friend--Lenore Eisenhour, who writes beautiful YA!
As part of my talk in Baltimore, hosted by the Enoch Pratt Library, BookTV recorded my talk for CSPAN. So if you missed me when I was travelling, here's a chance for you to see the talk for yourself!

Enjoy! (click image below)

That looks like a lot of fun, but it also sounds exhausting! Flying is no longer the adventure it used to be, but meeting all those people enthusiastic about your writing must be a real buzz.

How exciting! Looks like you had a wonderful tour. And meeting up with old friends had to be the best part.

Writing could be a terribly troublesome issue and generally you become thus bored. during this approach, you'll be able to write the good quality stuff and you become an honest author.

I have to thank you for preparing me for what could have been one of the toughest phone calls of my life
I have had a very aggressive form of MS. I started taking daclizumab 12 years ago, after three other MS drugs failed me. This drug blocked the MS attacks, allowing me to live an active, happy life, even with a brain and spinal cord totally shredded from the earlier disease process. As I was listening to your interview on Science Friday yesterday, I wondered if any of the drugs or supplements I've been taking would later be regarded as toxic. Then my neurologist called to tell me that my MS drug has been taken off the market because of cases of encephalitis in Germany and Spain. Thanks to you, I was able to take the long view and remember Marie Curie and her infatuation with radium. This allowed me to let go of my attachment to the drug I am losing.
