Keith Rosson will be attending events in Portland, Lincoln City & Newport, Oregon, as well as stops in sunny California, so we wanted to share them with you in case you are able to attend.
First, he’ll be signing copies of his upcoming novel, Smoke City, at the Pacific NW Bookseller’s Trade show on Monday, 10/9 at 2 pm at booths 23/24 (the PNBA holiday catalog booths).
From there, he’ll head over to the coast for three library events in Lincoln City & Newport, Oregon to promote his first novel, The Mercy of the Tide. Since the book is set in a fictional city on the Oregon, Coast that was inspired by his time in Newport, it will be a special opportunity. NPR’s Jason Heller calls it “one of the most immersive fictional settings in recent memory.”
Then it is California dreaming as Keith heads south for several events including a guest speaking engagement at California State University Channel Islands and a reading as part of a Vermin on the Mount show to promote The Mercy of the Tide and his upcoming novel, Smoke City, which is about two unlikely companions on a most unusual road trip from Portland to LA in landscape populated by “smokes” (ghostly apparitions that have begun appearing all over the southwest).
And finally, back to Portland where he’ll kick-off the release of SmokeCity with a book launch party at Broadway Books in February! Keep an eye open here for additional events as they are scheduled.
There are no upcoming events at this time.

Behind the Mask is a multi-author collection with stories by award-winning authors Kelly Link, Cat Rambo, Carrie Vaughn, Seanan McGuire, Lavie Tidhar, Sarah Pinsker, Keith Rosson, Kate Marshall, Chris Large and others. It is partially, a prose nod to the comic world—the bombast, the larger-than-life, the save-the-worlds and the calls-to-adventure. But it’s also a spotlight on the more intimate side of the genre. The hopes and dreams of our cape-clad heroes. The regrets and longings of our cowled villains. That poignant, solitary view of the world that can only be experienced from behind the mask. More info →
Riptide, Oregon, 1983. A sleepy coastal town, where crime usually consists of underage drinking down at a Wolf Point bonfire. But then strange things start happening—a human skeleton is unearthed in a local park and mutilated animals begin appearing, seemingly sacrificed, on the town’s beaches. The Mercy of the Tide follows four people drawn irrevocably together by a recent tragedy as they do their best to reclaim their lives—leading them all to a discovery that will change them and their town forever.
