When we announced the 2012 tour schedule, there were shouts from Junkies all over the world: "When are you coming to [insert my hometown here]!!"  "When will I get a chance to raise a glass with the FDØ?"

Well, Junkies, now's your chance.  We've teamed up with the fine folks at Shindig Events and we'll have a virtual tour stop this Friday, March 30th, at 3:00pm PST.  And no matter where in the world you are, here's your chance to hear Scott read from NOCTURNAL, ask questions in real time, chat with other attendees, and even talk face-to-face with Scott. That's right, no matter where you are, no matter how many other folks show up, we'll have room for you too!

What do you have to do?  Easy:
  1. On Friday at 3:00pm PST (or whatever that works out to be in your town) head on over to: www.shindig.com/event/37-Scott-Sigler
  2. Enter your name and a valid email address. You'll also need a computer with a webcam and mic if you want to be seen and heard.
  3. If you've got a question, come ask during the Q&A, but keep in mind this is a public event.
  4. If you're so inclined, bring a beverage of your choice to enjoy during the Q&A.  I'm pretty sure Scott will be ready to raise a glass by Friday afternoon.

That's it!  The Shindig Events interface is super easy to use, and it'll only take a minute to learn how to ask a question (either by text or live on-camera), chat with other Junkies directly, or mingle with the assembled folk.

We know this won't work for everyone, and surely someone will say "but have have to [insert something not-as-cool here].  But it's a cool addition to the tour, and we'll have it recorded as well.  We're excited, and we really hope to see you there. You don't know, there might even be a surprise or two.*

*Disclaimer: Surprise or two not guaranteed. The whole virtual tour is a surprise in itself!!!

OMG!  The stars have aligned in my favor for once!  My boss may have thwarted me going to the SF stop, and thwarted me going to Siglerfest....but I already have this day off work so there's not a damned thing she can do about it!  And even if she wanted to, she couldn't because she's out of town!  Praise the FDO, I can make it!

This is awesome! We are going to make a tour stop, but I am going to have to catch this too.

Yes, for sure, anyone who is planning on going to the traveling show should certainly come to this one too, if you're so inclined.  Scott will be reading something different for this than he'll read at the bookstores, so you will get twice the fun!

And, for you hardcore Junkies, know that you can connect with each other and chat too! Up to 20 folks at a time can chat amongst themselves and watch the show.  It's really a neat system.

Will be fun.  See you there!

This is so bloody cool. I'll be coming to the east coast tour stop (number to be determined).

Would love to come to this one as well... but I'll be somewhere in a bloody airplane between Newark NJ and Beijing China. Damn my luck.

I'll be sure to check out the recorded version as soon as a) it's posted and b) I get to someplace with decent wifi in China.

Cheers everyone and have a great time... I'll raise a minibottle of booze in your honor as I fly by.

Well, this seems like a jolly good idea. As I reside in the wonderful country known as Scotland I will have to work out the time zone thing and hopefully make an online appearance. Good work to the guys who have set this up.

I am very familiar with the time difference between here and England.  So if you are the same time zone as they are then it is an 8 hour difference.  So 3pm here would be 11pm.  I just looked and Scotland is on BST as well, so it will be an 8 hour difference.

Thank you, yes we in Scotland are on the same time zone as our southern neighbours. 11pm it is then!

Also wondering if this will qualify us for the short story that those at the physical stops will get.  I can't make a West Coast one, but plan on going to Chicago in August, would like to get both stops if possible.

Either way I'm going to try to attend this while closing out the month at work, and will be in Chi town but free stories are always a wonderful thing.

That's the same question twice, I think.  If you come to a physical tour stop, you get a copy of THE DETECTIVE for free.

I can't answer this one at the moment, but I'll make sure we discuss it before Friday's shindig.  It will depend on the abilities of the platform.  We can't have folks showing up for two minutes just to collect the ebook or it will minimize the effort folks are making to come to the physical stops. If we know how long y'all stayed, that's something to consider.

Anyway, best I can say for now is this: come and enjoy the virtual tour stop if you're at all able.  Bring questions, have fun, help us kick off NOCTURNAL right.   Then, if you get THE DETECTIVE anyway, it'll be a bonus!

Yea I was just highlighting the original question as well.  I absolutely intend on attending regardless of if I get THE DETECTIVE for as long as i can (will be at work so may flutter in and out) and I've already missed Scott twice due to deaths so assuming no more in-laws decide to kick the bucket I'll see ya'll in Chicago (If you could add a stop in La Crosse, WI you'd save me about 6-8 hours drive though)

3pm PST works out to be 9am Saturday on the east coast of Australia - quite civilised really and not too much of a stretch to be conscious for :)

Having just finished reading THE REPORTER, I'd love to get my hands on THE DETECTIVE, but sadly an intervening hemisphere prevents me from making it to one of the stores on the physical tour.

You can thank the Director of Døøm for that planning. She picked an hour that was civilized for both Europe (my second biggest market) and for Australia, which is full of people I love. You all better tune in!

It's refreshingly nice to be considered in the scheduling - not something that we see very often given the relatively small population out this way.  I will most definitely be showing my appreciation of this kindness with my virtual attendance - appreciation of your work is included automatically for the low, low price of requesting more of it ;)

6am Saturday? Ok, I'll try to be there - and if I have a beer in my hand at that hour, don't judge me. Call it peer pressure. 

Also, just want to echo what delwyn said. Thank you for considering Aussies in your planning. So very rare. Much love and thanks to you all. x

So just so I'm clear.  People like me, who will be at work with no webcam or mic.  There is also a chat room of sorts where I can post questions and such?

Looks like you can log in now.  Not sure why you would.  I did just cause I'm bored at work.  There is one other guy logged in too.

I was checking it out and it won't let me click on the box to allow the site to use my camera. I am hoping it is just because it is too early.
