will not be demonstrated this time. Frankly, this hardly counts as an entry. It's more like a business report.
First off, there's a new entry in my upcoming appearances. I'll be visiting The Flying Pig Bookstore in Shelburne, Vt. on Thursday, Aug. 2. I'm very excited about this, since it will be the official debut of the dead & the gone. I'm planning to read a selection from it. I'm pretty sure I know which one too. There's a food giveaway scene in Life As We Knew It and there's one in the dead & the gone and they make a nice compare and contrast. So that's what I'm leaning towards.
I'm also very excited because the owners of The Flying Pig Bookstore seem incredibly nice. LAWKI has been supported by the independent bookstore owners throughout America, and I am very grateful to them. Also Vermont in August sounds real nice to me.
The second, and final, bit of business is about the audio books of LAWKI I offered to all of you. One's been sent off, one is waiting for the person to e-mail me a name and address (you know who you are, which is more than I do) and one remains on my kitchen counter.
Don't be shy. I have a lot of them. I'm low on mailing envelopes, but I can always buy more.
See. Brief, concise, and businesslike.
That'll never happen again.
