I’m supposed to be writing, but we’ve had some personal stress and the book is coming out, which typically makes me a basket case. I drank a cup of stiff British tea. We’ll see if Bigelow can pull me out of my semi-comma.
First, important announcement: Jeaniene Frost will be joining us in Atlanta for Meet and Greet and signing.
We received our author copies of the Innkeeper Chronicles, Collector edition and they are gorgeous. And huge.
Yesterday we drove to Houston, signed a bunch of your orders, and drove back. I do not like driving in Houston. We should wreck it some more. In interesting news, you remember how I painstakingly explained that library edition of WHITE HOT is not a real hardcover? Yeah, about that, it’s a typical hardcover. We signed about 40 of them and we terribly surprised. So if you prefer a hard cover, order the library edition. You can get it on Amazon, BN, or a local independent can probably order it for you.
We did a radio interview this morning – our first – with a Michigan radio station. It went like this: general questions, pleasant, light talk, “So does this book have a lot of sex? Who is responsible for that?” O_O. I think I nervously laughed, which is so not me. So if you listen to Michigan’s Big Show, that was us this morning. This is what we get for a book with magic sex in it.
Okay, so in the interests of writing about something that is not the book, I wanted to show you some cool pictures of Russian playing cards. When I first saw US playing cards when I was in high school, I asked if there was a set that was less ugly. Which caused no end of teasing from the other students. I didn’t speak that much, because my command of English wasn’t great and I didn’t want to say something rude by accident, but I was so bummed out that it kind of came out. People asked me about “ugly cards” for weeks.
A couple of days ago I saw some Russian cards on sale on Amazon and so I present the evidence. My revenge, twenty-some years too late. 😛
