    This is great - I had no idea that my book tour was going to be during Teen Read Week! I'll be talkiing with teens and other fans in New York and Philadelphia that week! The full schedule is on my web site at http://www.erecrex.com

    Sounds like it will be a great week for teens to read the Erec Rex series, as well as other books by the great authors listed here!
