Crazy Road Trip Idea

Ok, I have an idea for a road trip knocking around in my head. I'm looking to see if anyone else is as crazy as I am and wants to take a trip? If you are not a Janet Evanovich fan, you can quit reading now.

Ok, Janet fans, as you know, Fingerlickin' Fifteen is coming out in June. This should indicate a book tour, no? Right, and we were promised tour dates at the end of April. Well, they're there all right, all 5 of them. She's going to a whopping 5 stops, one of which is in Canada.

*SIGH*

But I got to thinking about it. New Jersey isn't THAT far away. Cherry Hill is on the south end of New Jersey. And if we had a couple of drivers, well, it wouldn't be so bad.

Honestly, I'm thinking of going even if I have to go alone.

The date of the book signing is Tuesday, June 23rd at 6:00pm in Cherry Hill, NJ. My recommendation is that we call the book store that morning to make sure everything is cool and if so, we go up. We can be Jersey girls for the day. Now obviously, if you're working that day, you'll have a choice to make. A day of fun and frivolity versus being chained to your desk.

Anyway, I just thought I'd throw it out there. I'm happy to drive, I'm happy to pay for gas if someone else wants to drive, I'll bring the Tastykakes and pizza, whatever! If you think you'd like to go, drop me a line.

(Our other road trip options are Chicago, Alpharetta GA, or Ft. Meyers FL. Thank God we don't live on the west coast. If you'd like to see the list yourself, click here)

Oh, and the Name Book Sixteen contest is up at http://www.evanovich.com/funstuff/funfacts/name_book_16 Given my stellar success so far, I'm going to try a few titles out and see what happens. Get creative!

DID SOMEBODY SAY "ROADTRIP" ? ? ? ?

(Alpharetta is part of Atlanta metro -- and I'm sure the wifely one wouldn't object to standing in line....)

I know several people who live in Cherry Hill, NJ. It's very close to Philadelphia as well - if you wanted to see some culture and get a cheesesteak. :)

Oh my god!!! Janet Evanovich IN NJ???? We could be like Stephanie and Lula! You packing the gun or should I? Who wants to wear the lepoard print?

That is SUMMER VACATION for me....count me in!!!!! It's prob a 4-5 hour drive....

In one of the books Stephanie came to Washington didn't she?

Melissa said...

oooo...we could dress Leah up as Rex, or maybe Bob....Rex would be better....I'm sure they make little baby hamster costumes....

My great-aunt used to live near Cherry Hill, so I know the area just a little bit--not well, but well enough that I don't think we'll get lost :) And I have eaten many a Tastykake in that area!

I believe Stephanie came to DC in book 9 or 10? The one where Ranger's daughter was kidnapped, whichever one that one was.

Consulting my date book now..... :-)

Dunno about NJ, but if Alpharetta ends up being in the works for anyone I'd be there! My cousin lives probably 15 or so minutes from the Sam's Club where this is going to be held.

Maybe this time I will actually get to meet Ms. E instead of my hubby going in my place! :-)

Kate/Susan said...

We're bad, but Melissa and I have now made plans to dress Leah up as Little Lula and go to New Jersey :-) I have a real hoochie mama onesie that my mom got her and I'm on the hunt for leopard skin tights. I can't wait!

Melissa said...

Sam's club???? Janet is coming to a Sam's Club? Seriously??? She can do so much better! And, is it for members only? Do non-Sam's members have to buy a membership to see her?

Doing an exclusive thing is ok, as long as there's something else for the general public.

Kate/Susan said...

The sams club is handing out free one day passes when she arrives.

Seraphim9 said...

OH, I SO want to go to Jersey with youse guys (see, I'm already getting into character!).

Will have to work on Tal to see if we can make it happen! :-)
