Ladies and Gentlemen published today, a very exciting event indeed, though my kids greeted it like any other average Tuesday. Meanwhile, to inaugurate the event, we’ve made some changes to the web site. Hope you dig them. Currently I’m gearing up for my book tour, which begins next week at Nashville’s Downtown Library and takes me to the west coast for the first time. Check the list of sites and do come out if I’m in your city. Bring a camera and we’ll take many embarrassing mug shots. There’s nothing I enjoy more than meeting and talking with readers, and over the next few weeks, I’ll be regularly blogging about my experiences. I also hope you caught my turn on The Book Lady’s Bare Necessities series as well as my book recommendations in The Daily Beast’s Book Beast. Here, as well, is Ladies and Gentlemen discussed on Ann Kingman’s Books on the Nightstand podcast. Finally, some inside dope: I’ll be appearing on CBS’s Early Show this Friday. Check your local listings.
