How Are Events Scheduled & Tour Locations Decided?
Sherri has no control over where her publishers send her. She makes requests, but at the end of the day, it’s up to them where she goes for tours and the location of stores. As a rule, they pick larger cities that are centrally located to give as many fans as possible the ability to come see her. They try to be fair and we’re sorry that Sherri can’t go to every city every year.
If you want Sherri to come to your town in the US and Canada, please contact your local store, and tell them that you’d love to meet her. If they get enough requests, they’ll talk to her publishers, and with luck, they’ll send her there next tour.
If you live outside of the US, the best thing to do is contact her publisher in your country. Again, if they get enough requests, then they will bring her there to tour.
Events are decided in conjunction with Sherri and her publishers. Sometimes they book the events, but most of the time, it’s Sherri’s assistant Laura, who is the keeper of the master schedule, who sets events.
How it works is the committee in charge of the event such as DragonCon, Comic-Con and conferences, decide who they want to speak. They contact Laura and if the date’s available, she books Sherri for it. If you’d like her to attend an event, then please contact those in charge of the event to see if they’d like to invite her to the event to speak.
Sherri does tour outside of the US, and she has had signings in all states except Hawaii and Alaska. Countries she’s visited: Canada, Mexico, UK, Australia, Antigua, Puerto Rico, and Germany.
Thanks so much for understanding. Sherrilyn really appreciates your support and hopes to meet you soon.
Can’t Make An Event?
If you would like to have a book autographed and can't make one of our events, call the store where Sherri will be. They will gladly get her to sign it to you and then mail it to you. Or, you can either send for an autographed bookplate or you can mail the book to her. Please include a SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope) or for International readers International Reply Coupons to cover the price of return postage to your home. Please remember if Sherri is on the road touring or at an event, she won't be home to sign your book when it arrives. But she'll be sure and sign it as soon as she returns.
Send the books to:
PO Box 681707
Franklin, TN 37068
Signing Policies & Etiquette
Sherri’s signing policy for store signings and events is that she’ll sign anything not a check. The one thing we do ask it is that if it’s a really large crowd, please only have her sign three items in addition to whatever you’re buying at the event (we don’t want the other fans to hurt you, LOL). If you’re willing to wait to the end of the signing, Sherri will be more than willing to sign whatever you bring. Photos are also fine, so please feel free to bring your camera.
If you’re at an event, and you have to leave before you get a chance to have your item signed, please let Laura or whoever is there with Sherri know before you leave. We don’t want anyone going home empty-handed after they’ve waited in line.
**Please be aware that sometimes stores or event coordinators will have a different signing policy in place. Please check with them before the event to make sure you’re aware of their individual policies. Thanks!
