Hello Internet surfers. Hang ten, bro!
last blog's hype about the release party/book signing, there's a chance
for a few more (book signings, though, no parties). My grandpa was able
to get me the contact info to the public relations guy from the Leawood
Barnes and Noble. I wrote to him, asking about a possible reading, and
he wrote back! Apparently, B&N schedules readings like six weeks in
advance, so it won't be until March at least (during my Spring break),
but still! Barnes and Noble! Big chain bookstore! How can I pass this
up? Either way, he wrote that to start the whole thing off the process,
he'd need a copy of my book and available dates for the reading. This
week I drove over and delivered them. Haven't heard from him yet, but
given it's the holidays, he's probably busy. I can wait. :)
sooner possible prospect is another independent store. It's called The
Raven Bookstore in Lawrence, and a good friend of mine from high school
gave me the contact info for the owner. I sent her an email as well, but
unlike B&N, I haven't heard from her. When it's been a week, I'll
try calling her to talk just in case she didn't get my email.
Still on a hype from the book signing! YAY!!!
Like 1: Christmas is this week! Bring on the good times!
2: My sister Allison is coming home tomorrow from studying abroad in
Ecuador. It'll be so good to see her; I've missed her. She does have 33
hours and at least six planes she has to go through to get home, so
here's praying she makes it here safe and sound.
Like 3: Look what I found at Barnes and Noble during the delivery:
Dislike 1: It's gotten really cold. I don't like the cold. :P
