[Journey’s end — with What’sup in Perth]

When this post pops up at 7 am New York time, it will be 7 pm in Perth, Australia, and your proprietor will be starting the final event on our book tour with the help of Channel 7 journalist Bryan Seymour.

Our book, The Unbreakable Miss Lovely, came out in May, and we then started our travels, beginning our tour in California. Since then, we’ve wandered around the US, Europe, and now even Australia. And wherever we went, no matter the size of the crowd, there were always people who had taken the time to see us — some traveling huge distances — who told us that they read this website every day, and who tried to make us understand what it means to them to be a part of this community.

That’s the part that’s really kept us going. Meeting Bunkerites from Clearwater to Seattle, from London to Phoenix, from Melbourne to Paris, has really made the years of work reporting on this strange beat all worth it.

We’d love to hear your memories of this summer and fall’s events. It’s all gone by like a blur for us, and we’d like to hear your stories.


Then, since we’ll be trapped here in Western Australia for a little longer, we sure hope someone live-blogs the Dan Harris interview of Leah Remini coming up at 10 pm New York time on ABC. Let us know how she does!



We didn’t get a chance to include photos in our book, so we’ve posted them at a dedicated page. Reader Sookie put together a complete index and we’re hosting it here on the website. Copies of the paperback version of ‘The Unbreakable Miss Lovely’ are on sale at Amazon. The Kindle edition is also available, and shipping instantly.

Our book tour is concluded for now. We’ll let you know about future appearances. Previous events: Santa Barbara (5/16), Hollywood (5/17), Orange County (5/17), San Diego (5/20), San Francisco (5/22), New York (6/11), Chicago (6/20), Toronto (6/22), Clearwater (6/28), Washington DC (7/12), Hartford (7/14), Denver (7/17), Dallas (7/20), Houston (7/22), San Antonio (7/24), Austin (7/25), Paris (7/29), London (8/4), Boston (8/24), Phoenix (9/15), Cleveland (9/23), Minneapolis (9/24), Portland (9/27), Seattle (9/28), Vancouver BC (9/29), Sydney (10/23), Melbourne (10/25), Adelaide (10/28), Perth (10/30)
