It's the kickoff of Mason Johnson's virtual book tour!

Mason Johnson: The 2014 Sad Robot Tour

Who's the little robot who could? Why, Mason Johnson's Sad Robot Stories, which in the nine months since its release has grown to become one of the most popular books CCLaP has ever published. We thought this would be a perfect time to send him out on a virtual book tour, a two-week excursion that will see Mason visiting a whole series of our friends who run other litblogs and other literary-oriented websites; Mason will be conducting interviews at some places, recording brand-new MP3s at others, and running exclusive clips from the book at yet others. Today, for example, Mason is hanging out with our buddies at the newly revamped Chicago Literati, where they have recruited their in-house illustrator Alex Nall to do some new drawings to go with the book's excerpt; then over the next nine weekdays after that, Mason will be visiting the following locations:

June 17: Hypertext
June 18: Glorified Love Letters
June 19: Two Dudes in an Attic
June 20: Words, Notes, and Fiction
June 23: The Weeklings
June 24: Curbside Splendor
June 25: Guiltless Reading
June 26: Books, With Occasional Food
June 27: The Next Best Book Blog (run by CCLaP marketing director Lori Hettler)

It's going to be a lot of fun, so I hope all of you will have a chance to come back here every day over the next two weeks and follow along! And in the meanwhile, if you've never read this increasingly celebrated book yourself (check out the unending blurb list on the download page to see what I mean), I encourage you to download a completely free ebook version of it right this moment. As always, we look forward to reading your thoughts about it over at Amazon and Goodreads.
