In the home stretch

Fun fact: The men’s room stalls at KUOW have posters telling you exactly what to do to survive in the event of an earthquake. I don’t know if it was that or just the generally laid-back National Public Radio atmosphere, but I was relaxed and comfortable during my Tuesday afternoon conversation with Ross Reynolds, and I think it was my best live interview about The Mirage so far. You can listen to it here.

Tuesday evening Lisa and I went back to our old neighborhood indie, Queen Anne Books. Despite some bad weather we had a nice turnout for the reading, and Tegan Tegani gave me a wonderful intro. I also signed a ton of stock, so if you’re near Queen Anne Hill and looking for a signed first edition of The Mirage, give the bookstore a call. (N.B. Queen Anne Books itself is still for sale. Limited quantity! Act now!)

My next event will be a reading on Saturday at the Tumwater Timberland Regional Library in Tumwater, Washington, starting at 2 PM. Then on Monday I fly to San Francisco for a final series of readings and signings in the Bay Area—the full schedule is here.
