Cancelled due to Covid – Working on Signed Book Plates

 

Brandon Leake

We’re extremely sorry to announce that Travis Baldree has had to cancel the rest of his bookstore tour due to Covid.

We were so looking forward to this and we know you were too. We have signed book plates in the works and will keep you in the loop for any further updates.

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Travis Baldree is a full-time audiobook narrator who has lent his voice to hundreds of stories. Before that, he spent decades designing and building video games like Torchlight, Rebel Galaxy, and Fate. Apparently, he now also writes books. He lives in the Pacific Northwest with his very patient family and their small, nervous dog.

ABOUT THE BOOK

The much-beloved BookTok sensation
A Barnes & Noble Best Book of 2022
An Indie Next Pick

*This paperback edition includes a very special, never-before-seen bonus story, ‘Pages to Fill.’*

After a lifetime of bounties and bloodshed, Viv is hanging up her sword for the last time.

The battle-weary orc aims to start fresh, opening the first ever coffee shop in the city of Thune. But old and new rivals stand in the way of success — not to mention the fact that no one has the faintest idea what coffee actually is.

If Viv wants to put the blade behind her and make her plans a reality, she won’t be able to go it alone.

But the true rewards of the uncharted path are the travelers you meet along the way. And whether drawn together by ancient magic, flaky pastry, or a freshly brewed cup, they may become partners, family, and something deeper than she ever could have dreamed.

“Take a break from epic battles and saving the world. Legends & Lattes is a low-stakes fantasy that delivers exactly what’s advertised: a wholesome, cozy novel that feels like a warm hug. This is my new comfort read.”—Genevieve Gornichec, author of The Witch’s Heart

Rees Hughes and Howard Shapiro, editors of the new anthology Crossing Paths: A Pacific Crest Trailside Reader, will be presenting at Capital Books in celebration of their recent release in partnership with the PCTA

ABOUT THE BOOK

  • Contributors include Cheryl Strayed, Carrot Quinn, Barney “Scout” Mann, Aspen Matis, Nicholas Kristof, Heather Anderson, Will “Akuna” Robinson, and many more
  • Shares new stories over the last decade to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the original PCT Readers
  • Sidebars address some of the issues affecting the PCT today
  • Includes a map of the PCT to follow along with the stories

What’s it like to be a trail angel and can romance truly blossom from first meeting to marriage on the Pacific Crest Trail? How do trail names get bestowed and what does it mean when you find yourself roaring back at a mountain lion? How have climate change, technology, and the sheer number of hikers affected life on the PCT?

Find the answers to all these questions, and so many more, in the diverse writings gathered in Crossing Paths, an anthology of stories and poems written by PCT hikers. Reflecting the contributors’ rich and varied individual experiences, this collection includes both ordinary and extraordinary experiences, from dodging lightning strikes on an exposed ridge south of Sonora Pass or surviving early fall snowstorms in the Cascades, to deeply personal walks-as-therapy following military serviceor cancer treatment. The selection represents geographic, gender, ethnic, and age diversity, and strives to reflect the totality and depth of life on the trail.

Join Timber Hawkeye, bestselling author of Buddhist Boot Camp, Faithfully Religionless, and The Opposite of Namaste, for a discussion and Q&A

Discover the benefits of mindfully living at peace with the world (both within and around us). Mindfulness doesn’t make other people less irritating, it makes us less irritable. It’s not about living in a bubble where nobody pushes your buttons, it’s about getting to a point where you don’t have any buttons that can be pushed.
Everyone is welcome.

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Timber Hawkeye is the bestselling author of Buddhist Boot Camp, Faithfully Religionless, and The Opposite of Namaste. His books and the Buddhist Boot Camp Podcast offer a secular mindfulness practice to be at peace with the world (both within and around us).
His intention is to awaken, enlighten, enrich, and inspire

ABOUT THE BOOK

Mindfulness doesn’t make other people less irritating, it makes us less irritable. I understand why you do what you do, because the ego in me sees the ego in you. Each chapter in this book is an episode from the Buddhist Boot Camp Podcast, offering food for thought about the non-judgmental benefits of recognizing and acknowledging both the ego and the divinity within us all. It’s not about living in a bubble where nobody pushes your buttons, it’s about getting to a point where you don’t have any buttons that can be pushed.
