Bleary-eyed, no coffee yet but trying to keep on top of the details. Interviews, posting tour photos on Facebook, even some Christmas shopping. It's amazing what you can do from your hotel bed (when you have good wireless service!). Wanted to pass on a few more links for cool stuff.
The LA Public Library posted great photos and a podcast of my recent ALOUD event there. There are a few pictures and if you click on the podcast button, you can hear my chat with the awesome Carolyn Kellogg of the LATimes. You can check it out here.
Had a great and fun interview with Terry Hong of the Smithsonian for Bookslut. You'll like it, I promise!
And I'm really enjoying my weeklong guest blogger gig at Powell's. It's making me moody (in a good way) and grateful. Follow along here.

Book club members have been some of my most enthusiastic and careful readers. I’m thrilled to share my work with you, answer your questions and tell you some of the stories behind the stories. This is our spot, just for us. Here, we can chat: If I’m nearby, I’ll come and visit your club. Otherwise, we can Skype, talk over the phone or email. Sometimes, I’ll send surprises or hold contests.
