Todd Dills Is Invading Your City

You've been warned.

I received the message below from local indie publisher featherproof books. I've already pre-ordered Sons of the Rapture (excerpt), and am really looking forward to reading it. (Full disclosure: Todd publishes THE2NDHAND, and recently ran my short story "Immortality." But you really shouldn't hold that against him.)

Dearest Pete Anderson,

Have you been long saddened at the selfishness of Chicago when it comes to all things featherproof? Well cry no more, one of our own is venturing out of the nest, and coming to a town near you, or possibly even a town all around you.

And, thank your lucky stars, the fledgling is none other than Todd Dills, author of the newest featherproof book Sons of the Rapture! This is the first leg of a gigantic looping tour, so if you aren't represented here, fret not, there is more to come. In the meantime, pre-order the book at featherproof.com. Read an excerpt, or, if your eyes hurt, let Todd read you an excerpt. Really? Yes, really. Listen to it here.

See you on the road:
