Today one of my co-workers told me he saw the article about me in the local paper’s weekly features magazine, indy.com. To which I replied, ‘”What article?” I knew they were going to do a review, but damn, that was fast. Indianapolis Star reporter Jenny Elig says my book is “super-engaging.” Read a scan of the article here.
I can also tell the publicity machine has started to kick into gear. My publisher sent me a box of postcards this week, which I can hand out to promote the book or to enter a lot of sweepstakes. (I think they’d prefer the former.)
This evening, I returned home to see a flattened cardboard box at my front door.
My first thought was that someone had opened up my nice present from the mail man and left the packaging to taunt me. When I took a closer look, I saw that the package was still sealed and that this was inside.
They bubble-wrapped my ass! I now have two signs to display at my book release party, book signings, or to just hang over my desk at work. That’s one way to redecorate.
