Doust heads east

Jon Doust is heading east to shove and push and generally talk up his new book, Boy on a Wire. It’s a heavy book, yet light, and easy to read.

It’s time to push. Sales are good, but could be better. Lots of folk on the eastern seaboard have not heard about it yet.

Oh yes, the reviews have been great, but how many people read them? Lots, that’s why sales increase with good reviews.

But reviews have to be accompanied by appearances, handshaking, door knocking, and annoying behaviour in order to attract attention.

That’s where Doust steps in.

Here’s his itinerary.
