The Story So Far 03/01/2010
Next will be officially launched a week from tomorrow, which is the day that copies will be available in actual brick-and-mortar bookstores. You can buy it online already, apparently, at the usual outlets, but please remember it's always good to support your local bookstore, especially the independent ones. You can buy a copy online from a local store through IndieBound.
If you live in or near Austin, Texas, you can wait until March 12, when I'll be doing a reading and book signing at BookPeople, at 7 p.m. In Michigan, please stop by one of the Grand Rapids or Lansing area locations of Schuler Books, which is the great indie store run by my old friend Bill Fehsenfeld. Not only can he sell you a copy of Next, but via the magic of his new Espresso Book Machine, he can print you a copy of one of my earlier books, while u wait!
In the meantime, you can hear me talking about Next on Writing on the Air at 6 p.m. CST this Wednesday, March 3, on KOOP radio in Austin. I'll be live on the air with host Francois Pointeau. In Austin, you can hear KOOP at 91.7 FM, and the show is also streamed live on the web at KOOP.org. It will also be available as a podcast later.
And, finally, I woke up this morning to this very generous review of the book by Michael Schaub in Bookslut.
All in all, not bad for a Monday morning.
PS: And here's a bonus review, from the Review Broads website.
In which I mostly write about books, movies, and TV. An all-purpose spoiler alert: Sometimes I will talk about these works on the assumption that the reader's already read or seen them, so if you haven't, be forewarned.
