Here’s the flight Jeff was on going back to Portland yesterday. Just surreal.
I had a lunch meeting set with two others to discuss a cancelled event where I was scheduled to speak. We’ve had to cancel the lunch because restaurants are only serving carryout. Instead we’ll meet at the home of one of the guys and he’ll prepare the meal.
Yesterday I received a rejection on one manuscript but also heard potentially fun news about AND THE BULLFROGS SING. More about that if and when it develops. Still waiting for the first reader reviews of AFTER DARK. I sent off a new proposal and started a new poem. Good week so far. I went into Walgreens to pick up a prescription and was met by a flow of people coming out with toilet paper. I guess a new supply had just gone on the shelves. I bought some too. What the heck. What I really needed was coffee. Forgot that.
I had a nice time signing yesterday at Sundog Books in Seaside, Florida. They were out of the titles from the last time I was there but they had a fresh stock of AFTER DARK and it sold well. This was my first signing since it came out on February 25 and I was pleased with its reception.
The next three signings are set in Springfield: March 21 at Barnes & Noble, March 31 at The Library Center, and May 16 at Pagination Books. Open to booking a few others.
