Finally, finally, finally we have Amazon salesgoing. This was, for some reason, a huge drama, to do with the amount of discount Amazon would get, and a bunch of other crap I wasn’t involved in but which occupied I kid you not every day since early November, but you can get it there now. Whew. It’s alsofront-paged at the publisher’s.
Now, for the fun stuff. The dates, times and places for readings thus far, with more to come:
Chicago: Feb. 21 – 7 p.m. The Ernest Hemingway Museum, 200 N. Oak Park Ave, Oak Park, IL 60303.Map here. There’s a parking garage about two blocks south on Oak Park Avenue, and tons of good restaurants for dinner and drinks before and after.
Madison, Wis.: Feb. 24 – 2 p.m.A Room of One’s Own Feminist Bookstore. This one’s special because back when I lived in Madison, I used to write in the mornings there.
Philadelphia: March 28-30. I’ll be speaking on theEschaCon08 panel about blogging and journalism on Saturday, March 29. It’s going to be a good time.
New York, DC, St. Louis and Seattle all still under consideration. I’ll post more details when I get them. And don’t forget to send me links if you review so I can give you proper thanks.

A Room of One’s Own?
They serve beer there, right?
Wow. I now find you strangely intimidating.
Hey, virgo, it wasn’t MY blog David Simon commented on, now was it? 😉
well, i just accept my my talents are elsewhere.
Yay! Now I just have to remember my Amazon login so’s I can write a glowing review.
Woot! Now I’m going to have to start contacting all the TV Action cam teams for coverage. They like some kind of action visuals, could you maybe bring the ferrets?
I envision them playing in a big playpen with copies of the book propped up all over the place in a pile of issues of the Daily Cardinal. A brilliant AP photographer once told me. “You want national coverage? Figure out a way to work an animal into your story. That sucker will get picked up nationality 3 out of 5 times.”
BTW, I’m not kidding. It might need to be a still shot because newspapers aren’t keen on video. Which is fine because then you can set it up like this:
Ferrets playing in a big pile of your books and copies of student newspapers.Make sure the titles can be seen and not cropped out.
Then you have your cute feature story about you the brilliant writer with the adorable ferrets and the deep insight on journalism and student newspapers and the future of it all.
Listen to Ol’ Spocko, remember — I know a bit about marketing and PR and junk, right?
