Hi folks!

I am taking Internet Celebrity: Understanding Fame Online on a mini book tour. Upcoming dates are clustered in the Nordic and the UK. Please feel free to share this link with friends and students who are in these cities, and come bye to say hi if you are in the area yourself. This page will be continuously updated as specific details become available.

I am also still considering invitations in other locations, so do get in touch. Further information on PR kits, review copies, bulk purchases, translation opportunities, and press enquires can be found through the book link.
