Preston and Child are on a first-ever, two-week, 24-city tour aboard a custom bus that sports a wrap of the book jacket. This way they can appear together at every signing; formerly, they appeared together only selectively, with Preston traveling farther afield on his own. Their fans, reporst the publisher, “will travel great distances to get to see them together, let alone get their signatures.” The duo is blogging every day – complete with pictures – about the tour, the crowds and the bus at www.prestonchild.com. There are 241,000 copies in print.
