Radiohead & a new critter in the forest

Eight Days until WINTERGIRLS comes out…

Today is a radio day. I’ve already taped an interview with Dr. Alvin Jones of WCBQ-WHNC-AM in North Carolina. In a little bit, I’ll be chatting with a radio host out in Napa, CA, Jeff Schectman of KVON. BH has taken the Creature With Fangs out on his errands so my interviews are not compromised by 95-snarling pounds of German Shepherd.

This afternoon I’m headed down to Syracuse to tape an interview for the NPR show, “Here and Now.” When I get air dates, I’ll let you know.

In between the interviews, I’m working on my presentation for the book tour. I bring a digital projector with me, and I’ll be showing a Keynote (Apple presentation software, much better than Powerpoint) show in many of the schools and libraries I’ll be visiting.

We’ve had a new person working here in the Forest for a couple of weeks. Her name is Queen Louise and I can’t figure out how I got along without her. Queen Louise is in charge of keeping me organized and helping me juggle. For example, she went in and created the Author Page on Goodreads for me. She coordinated with Theo the Web God to update my website. And she’ll make sure I am ready on time for this afternoon’s trip down to the radio station. With the Queen by my side, I’ll have more time to write. After the tour.

All Hail Queen Louise!!

Can you come and see me when I’m on tour?

Have you entered the WINTERGIRLS contest yet?

  1. I am really looking forward to coming to hear you speak at Book People in Austin in a few weeks! Already on the calendar.

  2. You’ll be in Raleigh the exact day that we’re at a hockey tournament. The vast majority of the tournaments are held in Raleigh, but this time, no, we’re in Myrtle Beach. Arrrrg! The youngest so wants to meet you.

  3. It’s incredibly amazing to be able to vicariously experience this excitement. I’ve dreamed of being an author since I was very young, but always wondered what it was really like. I see now that it really is a very rewarding whirlwind. You motivate me to continue with my own writing and developing my skill in the hope that I may experience some of this first hand someday.

    NPR! WOW! I look forward to hearing that interview.
