Touring with Terry – The Irene Tour – Albany, NY – Monday
Our drive today was on a small road through attractive farmland. Some adjustments to our route were necessary due to the floods in southern Vermont. We reached Albany in plenty of time for Terry’s 3 o’clock interview with Joe Donahue on WAMC/Northeast Public Radio.
Tonight’s signing was at Flights of Fantasy, owned by Maria Perry, another former Waldenbooks bookseller. A super turnout that filled her store. Another couple of guys who traveled a great distance – Robert Kusiak from near Toronto, Canada, and John Day, from NW New Jersey.
We had a lovely drink in the bar of our hotel to unwind and talk about next year’s tour. That’s right! Terry has had such a good time this year that instead of his usual, “I’m never going to tour again,” he is already making plans for going out with Wards of Faerie. Haven’t discussed anything with Del Rey yet, but it’s been a while since we have toured either the midwest or California. Any suggestions?
