I'm just about to set off on my third North American trip of the year. Probably my last in 2014. Not because of the cost, but because I'm running out iof holidays.
The highlight (for me at least) will be talking at the AHA Conferrence in Grand Rapids. Though I'm filling in the week running up to it with various events. Obviously mostly designed to persuade you to buy my wionderful new book. Though if you already own the book, you can come along and I'll sign it for a nominal fee.
It's really not all that long until the first event, which is on Sunday in Toronto. Local hiome brewers have brewed up some recipes from the book. You'll get to taste the beers while I spout my usual bollocks. Contextualisation I like to call it, of only because it's a seven syllable word. I'm sure it will be lots of fun.
I'm finally getting excited about the trip. I've been too busy fussing about getting eveything organised for it (and other stuff I'm doing in Europe) to really think about it much.
