Who Wants to Be a Hero? Book Tour with C.J. West

Are you a fan of thrillers? How about unpredictable and dangerous heroes? C.J. West is the author of a series of books featuring Randy Black, who is just that kind of guy. In fact, the character and the story have caught the eye of filmmakers, and Sin and Vengeance has been picked up for a movie option.

If you live in or can travel to New England this spring, you can attend a fun and active book tour for C.J.'s latest novel, Gretchen Greene (out in March). This is a book tour like none other . . . trust me! When C.J. asked me if I would help spread the word about this exciting tour, I said yes without hesitation.

Who Wants to Be a Hero?

There's a little something for everyone on C.J.'s book tour, which takes place in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, starting in early April and continuing until June.

Driving demo: Ever want to know how to drive a car like the cops do in the movies? Advanced Driving & Security, Inc., which trains security drivers, offers a demonstration and a chance for participants to drive on a training course.

Handling firearms: At this event, sponsored by the Gun Owner's Action League and the National Shooting Sports Foundation, participants will learn firearms safety and marksmanship and will get a chance to practice at a shooting range.

Wine and cheese: Okay so action isn't your thing, never fear, you can opt for wine and cheese tastings. Both the Westport Rivers Winery and the Admiral Fitzroy Inn are featured in or inspired scenes in the Randy Black novels. Here's your chance to spend an afternoon enjoying the finer things in life.

Newsroom visit: Danielle Williamson, a crime reporter who is the model for one of the Randy Black characters, will guide participants through the newsroom of the Worcester (Mass.) Telegram & Gazette. Learn the behind-the-scenes action of a newspaper and join C.J. and Danielle for dinner after the tour.

Ante up: At bookstores and other venues, join C.J. in a game of Texas Hold 'Em. Never learned to play? No problem, lessons will be given at C.J.'s book signing events.

For dates and locations visit C.J.'s website. Note that some events require reservations and a fee.

Sounds like a really fun tour with some great activities. If I lived in New England, I'd be thinking about those wine events . . . but that's just me.

FTC: I get absolutely no compensation for this; I happen to be a person who likes to help out her friends.

Thanks, Candace. This tour is going to be great. I hope your New England readers will come out and meet me. The sponsored events are a great bargain!

I live near one of these towns so I might check it out. I just looked up Sin and Vengeance and it looks really good. Thanks for the post.

I have Sin and Vengeance on my TBR list! I've been wanting to read that for a long time now. Glad to see that there are many to follow. :)

If I lived nearby, I would be tempted by the wine, but even more by the opportunity to try out shooting. I think that could be a fun hobby.

What an original idea for book tours!

Sheila (bookjourney) 3/16/10, 11:50 AM  

Oh this sounds like a lot of fun! Great idea!

Dawn 3/16/10, 11:51 AM  

Wow, what fun! I'm in touch with CJ via twitter, but I haven't yet read any of his novels. I'll have to take a peek ... then on to wine and cheese!

That driving demo got me really, really interested, but alas, I'm staying in another part of the world! This series sound like something I'd love to get my hands on. Thanks for sharing this, Beth!
