Postcards from the Edge (or from Kokomo)
This is how you make an author feel appreciated: mail out a bunch of nicely-designed postcards letting people know he’ll be dropping by your store in a couple of weeks. And then you also mail a postcard to the author himself, just in case, uh, he’s forgetful or anything. Very helpful.
I mean, look — they tried to match fonts and everything! That just makes me feel shiny.
And, also, all you folks in Indiana: I’ll be making an appearance at Don’s Books in Kokomo on Saturday, June 10, from noon until 2 p.m. I’ll be signing books and possibly doing a reading or some other thing to justify traveling 113 miles to get there (Google Maps is under the impression that I’ll need 3 hours to drive 113 miles. Silly, silly Google Maps). At the moment this is my only planned appearance in Indiana, so if you want to see me, to have me sign a book or just to serve me legal documents of one sort or another, this will be the time and place to do it.
