I'm on My Way, I'm Making It Big Time
Kidding about the title of this post, although I'm positive there is a line of '80s music for every occasion in life. And the big occasion I'd like to announce is...(drumroll, please)...my first actual Author Appearance in a Legitimate Place!
Mark your calendar for:
Wednesday, September 30
University Bookstore in Bellevue
990 102nd Ave NE
Bellevue, WA 98004-4196
I'll be there to promote MOURNING BECOMES CASSANDRA, sign books, bribe people with cookies or other giveaways, and just generally grovel.
If you're reading this blog, chances are you've already read the book. Feel free to bring a newbie friend. Promise great things.
Cheers to independent bookstores! University Bookstore actually contacted me to ask if they could carry books because people had been asking. After considering for a millisecond, I tore over there, books in hand, to get them out immediately. Pop in and you'll find MBC on the "New Fiction" table.
On the dependent bookstore side, a friend and fan went into Lifeway to encourage them to carry my book, only to be told that they were "a big corporation, and buying decisions were made at a higher level." Just as well, since Lifeway might take one look at the 20+ f-words in the book and draw somewhat-unjustified conclusions about me.
See you in September?
