My tour t-shirt, made by Creative Daffodil Literary Designs
The husband's Emily t-shirt (beautifully ironed as you can see, ahem.)
Junior's Emily D t-shirt by CafePress.com

Have a great trip! The t-shirts are sh*t cool looking forward to seeing a pic of the three of you dressed up! :) Safe journey X

Thanks, Karen, looking forward to setting off.

Have a wonderful tour! You will be near me. I hope to see you at one of these events.

I just discovered you today, thanks to the PW article! If I'd known I would have tried to get to Mystic a few months ago, and, ironically, I will be in New England on Aug 8th, but not to Amherst until the 11th. Argh!!! I fully intend to buy your book, however, and I'll be trying to look up your Amherst co-reader Susan Snively, when I visit Emily's Homestead on Wed the 12th. I shared about you on my FB Page (Cookie's Books - https://www.facebook.com/ingrid.cookie.davidsen) and will also share on the indie publisher page for Pan Am Books - for whom I do consulting work. Best of luck to you for the remainder of your U.S. Tour!

Lisa - it would be FAB to see you!!

Nuala Ní Chonchúir said...

We leave on the 11th, Ingrid, so we will miss each other. My Mystic reading is the 3rd, so before you hit New England. Oh dear! Thanks for sharing, much appreciated.

Hi again - I'm confused - The Tour Dates listed have Mystic down for a March date - Can you re-post all the dates?

Nuala Ní Chonchúir said...

No, it's down as August. That's the way we write dates in Europe! We see the way Americnas write them as backwarrds, just as you see ours. I'll rejig to include the month name.

Great tshirts :-) Hope to see you before you head off across the ocean. I'm trying to read slowly and savour every delicious sentence rather than plunder through quickly, greedily to the end. I'm enjoying Miss Emily IMMENSELY. All rewards richly deserved!

Nuala Ní Chonchúir said...

Thanks, Ems, really glad you are enjoying the book!

I want the t-short with Emily's face on it! Always loved her poems since I discovered her for my Leaving Cert.
