I hope you get a great turn out.

sarah22277 said...

Ooohhh, please add Cleveland, please add Cleveland, please o please o please!

Dorci said...

Oh my gosh...that picture cracks me up. Still no Phoenix, huh?

:( Maybe next time.

Cassandra said...

Framingham?! *sad face*

Chelsie said...

I wish you would do something in Idaho. We haven't been able to come to any of them...too far away.

Anonymous said...

Great new tour logo! Ouch! :)

jen bryner said...

no SLC???? really?? i suppose you can't go to EVERY city...*sigh*

tchen said...

Framingham... so close, yet still so far. But, thanks for thinking of Boston! Glad you both have your health back. :)

Nancy B said...

Well, phooey. The Atlanta date falls during my trip to Disneyworld, so I will miss my chance at the wreckplica contest. The signing will be loads of fun, I'm sure, but not quite a tradeoff for 10 days at Disney. Close, but not quite. :)

Camille said...

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!
You're coming to Buckhead! :D

Ashlee said...

Will be driving from NH down to Framingham to see you! So excited!

Traci said...

when are you coming to Idaho?!?

smiles :) said...

Please oh please come to Fargo! or at least Minneapolis, that's doable right? :)

Kelsey said...

I would love to see you in VA sometime! MD is pretty close. Good luck on this go 'round!

Sam said...

What about Philly? Sniff....

Dawn's Recipes said...

Woohoo! Boston! I'll have to check with hubby, but hopefully I'll be getting in my RSVP soon! :)

Southern Sugar said...

Next time, can we get a Kentucky/Ohio/Tennessee visit? Atlanta's just a little far, as is KC.

Glad to see that you're back on track, though!

Anonymous said...

OI! How about coming out to the Mid West-specifically, the Twin Cities in Minnesota..
Please, please have a flu shot, a tetnus shot, a shot-for-infected-lungs shot and so on...stay healthy Jon!

Liz said...

Please, please, PLEASE come to London at some point to kick off your world domination tour... I can't promise an amazing mini-wreck, but I can promise that I'll be laughing really hard!

Diana Watson, Writer said...

any chance of a Northern California visit anytime soon? San Francisco would be close enough for me.

Melissa B said...

We in Salt Lake are still sad you aren't stopping here! People here are crazy cake decorators, so you would be loved and appreciated!

Bridgete said...

Yay! You added Boston! =)

Anonymous said...

Durnit, I'm flying to NYC on Nov 3 missing you by one day! At least I got to see you in Seattle!

Erin said...

Please, please, please add CLEVELAND to your list of cities!! Pretty please!?!?!?

Katrina said...

MAN, I wish the KC date wasn't a weekday or I would be there in a heartbeat. That is a great little Barnes and Noble. Hope everybody has fun.

Anonymous said...

Do you think you'll ever be in New Mexico? We'd love to have you in Albuquerque! :-)

Miri said...

Well crapola, I missed the Dallas date. Any chance of coming back to the North Texas area?

Miriam said...

Any chance you will be coming to SLC?

Kari said...

oh YAY!!!! I'll be there in KC. (Technically Overland Park) lol

hbfj said...

LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA!

Anonymous said...

May I suggest Los Angeles?

Carolin said...

Tricia said...

When can we get THAT logo on a t-shirt?

Kara G. said...

Will you be signing copies of your book? I need to know whether to bring it along with me or not. I can't wait!

Jess P. said...

what about philadelphia? or pennsylvania for that matter???

:(

Lara said...

Love seeing the BN love! you should come to the one in Bellevue (WA). Why? cause I work there!
Seriously tho, would love to see you guys up in the Seattle area!

Dotty said...

You can't really dominate the world if you don't come to Canada. There are tons of cake wrecks here just waiting for you.

You could start infiltrating in Niagara or Toronto!

angiem said...

What about Utah? Come west please!!

erin Grant said...

come to orange county, ca!

Lacey said...

Seconding the Cleveland suggestion!

Mandi said...

ColoradoSpringsColoradoSpringsColoradoSpringsColoradoSpringsColoradoSpringsColoradoSpringsColoradoSpringsColoradoSpringsColoradoSpringsColoradoSpringsColoradoSprings...

Did the subliminal messaging get through yet? :) Because I love CW and want to see you come to Colorado Springs!!! I'll beg if I have to.

JaxKat said...

We will see you in Atlanta! There will probably be about 5 or 6 of us! Can't wait! Stay well :-)))

srb said...

The vital question is- will there be t-shirts with the new logo?
*waits patiently*

Haiku Joy said...

Sob! No Space Station?!
Weep for zero gravity.
It, too, longs for cake.

Anonymous said...

Come to southwest Ohio. Pretty please???

Jen

Angie said...

Glad you're up & running again! Wish you'd come to Charlotte, NC - I'd love to get you to sign pg 112 for my parents (Dave & Phyllis). That would make a great Christmas gift!

Diane1611 said...

How about stopping in St. Louis before you hit Kansas City, Jen? MacArthur's Bakery is great!

E.M. Green said...

Dear Jen and John,

The following whine is brought to you without cheese due to my lactose sensitivity.

Aw, c'mon, you pass right over it! TN is totally part of the world.

Okay, fine. But go there anyway, okay?

Alright alright. No pressuring. I'm not going to...be up all in your face about it. I'm just not that kind of person. I'm too short anyway. But I won't be up all in your chin about it either.

*huff*

I hope your trip from Boston to Atlanta is bor--fun. I hope it's very fun.

(IloveyouIreallydo)
Sincerely,
Green

W.V. garces: as in with your good garces you'll come here some day.

Christine said...

Amanda said...

Alison said...

Andrea said...

What, still nothing here on the West coast? I'm sure you guys have lots of fans out here!

I feel so unloved... :(

Aurora said...

Hawai'i loves you, too! Yeah, I know... long flight... *sigh*

Marcie said...

I'm sad! Raleigh/Durham is right on the way to Atlanta!!! Or, you could swing by here afterwards. It's only a 8 hour drive.

Amy said...

Wanted to tell you that you were in the KC Star today! Hope to make it to the book tour next month.

Jen said...

A Massachusetts stop!!! Awesome! Can't wait! :D

Marianne said...

I'm so excited! see you in Bethesda!

Cincinatti...Please We Love you

Ah maaan. KC is still on a Monday. I have classes that I can't skip. Now I'm gonna be sitting in class failing at paying attention. :(

Fellow KCers, have fun for me, K?

Lynda said...

Wish you would make it out here to Idaho.

Monika said...

Come to Pittsburgh! Everybody's doing it!

Merujo said...

So sad I'll miss the Bethesda date. Murphy's Law - it's less than a mile from my apartment, and I won't be able to be there. I hope my homies give you a wonderful reception!

NanaCat said...

Houston??? Puhleeze??? We love cakes..... we have bakers.... We love Princess Brides and Star Wars and Three Amigos... and YOU!

Allison said...

What about California????

Anonymous said...

I love your blog and your book and your humor. I wish I could go to a book signing, but I missed the one in San Fran which would have been the one closest to me.

However, at the risk of sounding like a bitch, I was born and raised in Massachusetts and Framingham is not Boston and is actually kind of far from Boston. So you should just say Framingham :)

Haiku Joy said...

I'm shocked and dismayed
at how underwater lairs
are not on the tour. . .

john (the hubby of Jen) said...

Anon 10:20,

First, Yup I know it's not Boston. It's 18 minutes from downtown and it's the best we could do.

That's about it.

john

Grays said...

I'll put down one more resquest for SLC Utah! And for that logo on a shirt.

Shoshana said...

Ooh, I had been planning on Atlanta, but I have a show that night :( I'll be there in spirit!

I'm so glad you and John are both better. You were in my thoughts!

Amy said...

If you're up to adding more tour dates somewhere in Wisconsin would be appreciated. :-D

Anonymous said...

Oh, Utah!!! I wish!!!

Domanique said...

Oh I just wish ya'll would come to AZ.

Lauren said...

You are unfortunately not coming anywhere close to me, so I will admire your tour from afar. But I just wanted to let you know I adore the new little logo. Carrot Jockey is pretty stellar with his arm sling and bandages.

Natalie said...

Interesting. But I don't see LA. You know, I just thought of a great cake inscription:

"You Can't Spell 'Get Well Soon' Without L.A.!"

Cherish @ My Cup of Tea said...

Oh poopie, I wanna join! When are you hitting Portland, Oregon?

Anonymous said...

It would so great if you added a potential few more dates in Pittsburgh PA!

Lose That Girl said...

Shame. No Canadian dates.

Sly said...

Maybe some day you'll come to Ohio. That would be awesome but we can all dream right?

Diana said...

Once again, NO Los Angeles date.

Do you know how many book-buying foodie blog readers are here in LA?

you're missing a MAJOR market, girl!

Stacy Light Mygatt said...

I'm still begging for a St Louis stop!! PLEASE!?! =)

Michelle said...

Michelle said....what about Miami, could be BN, Books and Books, Borders!
PS. mean Miami in Florida not Ohio!

Anonymous said...

I RSVPd for Boston. Hey, it's an early birthday present for me. This year I will finally have someone give me cake for my special day. Hee hee!

shammy said...

Any thoughts of coming up to Canada?

Alexandra said...

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

Isn't it weird how a perfectly normal word looks strange when you type it out over and over again?

We love you!!!!

Anonymous said...

WooooooooooooooHoooooooooooooo!

BOSTON!

And at Barnes and Noble at that! :o)
I was so excited by the news, I signed up immediately and forgot to tell you how happy we are to be able to come see you both! I have a group that is coming and we would love to wear T-shirts with the new tour logo. Please, please, please?

Other than that, PLEASE take care of yourselves and stay healthy.

Come to Des Moines!

Catherine said...

Niki said...

Please come to Detroit! If you both are feeling well, and there are no un-fore-seen injuries, oh course! I was trying to convince my family to drive 6 hours to Chicago, but somehow that didn't go over so well.

Lauren said...

I love the new logo!

Katie said...

Sandi said...

Salt Lake, Salt Lake, Salt Lake! Or Boise! Don't neglect the mountain west!

Katie said...

All these tours in the US, what about the UK? I thought we had a 'special relationship'? Come on, we're only across the pond! And London loves cake wrecks. Pleeeeeaaassseee!

Djinn said...

Yet another vote for L.A. Please come and visit The Big Orange!

Fibro Witch said...

Agh! I tried to RSVP for Framingham, but I use firefox and gmail , not IE or Outlook. Darn my forward thinking.

But I will be there, been following this blog to long not to be.

watch me boogie said...

Yay!! You're coming to the Boston area. Boo!! You'll be way out in Framingham. We're going to try to make it; it would certainly be worth the drive.

Amanda said...

I'm bummed that you're not coming to San Diego, but I'm glad the tour is back on track!

Elizabeth said...

Gosh, I'm really impressed by all the votes for Utah and Idaho! Who knew there were so many of us snarky cake lovers out here? :)

Here's hoping Round Two treats you better!

Liz in SLC

Deb Geisler said...

Framingham! Yippee skippee -- well worth the drive, and it'll be *great* to see you.

Anna said...

Come to south Alabama!!!! (Mobile area )You would get a chance to see soooooo much wreckation. There's this lady at the local Bruno's who loves to make those ridiculous dog cup cakes that look more like a ragged old mop......Atlanta is just to far ma'am! Don't make me cry. Cuz I will. Not kidding.

Stefanie said...

*whine* Why no Michigan?! Come to the Mitten State!!!

...Please?.... Pretty please?

You know you want to! You KNOW you want to specifically come to the Metro Detroit area. *nodding head furiously*

hamwrap said...

Good luck with the tour, wish you could make it to blighty! ;-)

Peggie Quin said...

Im gonna have to sigh here... *sigh*... because as usual, New York's there and it's tiny, ignored neighbor, New Jersey, is not...

LOL, I'm not really that sad! I hope you have a TERRIFIC time!!!

Kim From Jersey said...

Can't we PLEASE OH PLEASE have a book date in Raleigh, NC?

Micco said...

Drats! I wish I could make it to the one in Atlanta! Of course, if you NEEDED to add a date in Savannah...

Lacey said...

Come to Nashville! :-)

Amy said...

What no stop in Bismarck ND? I do see someone also requested Fargo. Always enjoy your blog especially the Sunday Sweets.

I agree with some of the other posters. It can't be a "world tour" without at least coming to Canada as well. And of course Calgary would be a great place to start. :)

Tamara said...

I second a vote for NM.

Breanne said...

Definitely think you should come to Canada - Toronto would be great!!!

VeeBee said...

Oh, man, SO FREAKING CLOSE to Louisiana! Come a liiiiitle closer!

What about Canada?!

How about NOLA? C'mon, you know you want to visit.
