The tour has gone well. Great to see readers and have time to talk. Killer Weekend hit the New York Times, Barnes and Noble and the Wall Street Journal best seller lists, which keeps both the author and the publisher happy.

I was able to visit my friends at Disney Theatrical yesterday and to see a piece of the the technical rehearsal for the upcoming Little Mermaid production. Fascinating to watch, and the tiny piece of the show I saw was impressive. Felt like a "hit."

It's Harry Potter night tonight. Guard your broom. A little strange to be on tour during all the Harry Hype, but then again, the booksellers are excited so it makes for a good atmosphere. I'm 10 cities into a 15 city tour. Countdown is underway!

I see some film producers on Monday about one of my YA projects. Had a great interview yesterday on Mitch Albom's radio show; keeping up with Mitch is next to impossible, but he has both a TV film underway and is writing a script for a major film star. What a world.

Meanwhile, in the theme of Where in the World is Matt Lauer; Where in the World is Dave Barry?

Amazon has posted exclusive download of my action-piece called THE CHASE that introduces Walt Fleming.

Look for the link under the image of the book cover.

I hope you enjoy meeting Walt.
