Because I will be at the LA Times Festival of Books and also hanging about with pals. Not that you’re not my pals. I love each of you as if you were my best friend since Kindergarten. But these other friends will be physically present, you see.
I’m sure to be Twittering, however, so just keep track of me there.
Also, if you will be at the LA Times Festival of Books, remember that I’m autographing today at 1pm, at the Mysterious Galaxy Booth, which is, I think, booth 372. See you there (and if you miss it, don’t panic, I’m doing two signings tomorrow, after my panels).
