Coming Home to Alaska

I arrived in Ketchikan yesterday, and what a great town. The views of the water and mountains couldn't be better (when it isn't raining). Ketchikan is the salmon capital of the world as well as the gateway to the Tongass National Forest where something like 30% of the US lumber comes from. It is a charming town with totem poles dotted throughout and some fabulous totem parks. Ketchikan is a blooming art community with local and native art works in shops lining Creek Street, which was a brothel zone until the 1950's. There are special trails through the woods to Creek Street. One is called "Married Man's Trail," and it isn't hard to guess what that was used for.
 
Check out the photos on the "Book Tour Lands in Alaska" link for some interesting information that might revolutionize public conceptions about Alaska's native tribes.

On The Road

 

The book tour is in full swing. I came up from California yesterday and today am in Seattle about to head up to Bellingham for my book signing event at Village Books. I will be visiting some good old friends along the way. Today the book's video trailer came out as the SHELF AWARENESS "Book Trailer of the Day." Nearly every day on this book tour has brought another happy surprise from my PR team. This has included word that my book has made it on another review list, additions of speaking engagements along the book tour, and also the exciting news that one of my Alaska library speaking engagements (in Haines) will be video-cast and available to the other libraries in the state. Because of the huge size of the state, Alaska has always been progressive about using technology to brings people together.

Lucy's "Chihuahua sled dog" video trailer came out today. Tomorrow I leave for the start of the book tour. Since I can't add photos on this blog page too easily, I will be blogging about the book tour WITH photographs on the "Book Tour Scrapbook" page.
