That would be me.
In answer to questions about my immediate whereabouts this weekend at the Bookmarks Book Festival in Winston-Salem, NC:
1:00 - 1:45 PM - talk/reading on Main Stage
1:45 - 3:30 (with bathroom break somewhere in there, I hope) - book-signing
(No, there will NOT be copies of THE EXILE available; it won't be released until the launch part on Sept. 21)
3:30 - 4:15 - Panel discussion with two NC authors (whose names I unfortunately forget) about "Sense of Place" - on Main Stage
4:15 - more book-signing, if anyone still needs it.
MANY thanks to all the kind people who've welcomed me to NC and invited me to come places, eat with them, etc. I'm afraid that I'm only there for the one day, though, and am meeting with smaller groups all morning, and dining with the Festival organizers Saturday evening. Much Obliged, though, and I'll hope for more leisure to meet with y'all next time!
Oh--while we're at it, I see the Poisoned Pen has put up a Really Nice blogpost about the launch part for THE EXILE at
