Booksignings and Interviews Coming to Someplace Maybe Near You

Things are gearing up for the release of The Babylonian Codex on 30 November. So far, Steve and I will be doing a booksigning on December 11, from 1-3 p.m., at the Garden District Book Shop, 2727 Prytania Street New Orleans, Louisiana. If you are unable to attend, you may contact the bookstore to preorder a signed, personalized book. Their telephone number is 504-895-2266.

We will also be doing the following radio interviews:

Personally, I much prefer live TV interviews to live radio interviews. I find it very disconcerting to have tens of thousands of people eavesdropping while I talk to someone I don't know and whose face I can't see. It's a weird experience.

I'll let you know when more events are scheduled.

Will any of those events be podcasts? Or can any of those radio stations be listened on the web? Would love to hear a voice to go with your author face photo.

I have already pre-ordered both Babylonian and When Shadows Dance, but maybe I should cancel and order through your NoLa bookstore?

Charles Gramlich said...

I'll try to make the signing. Depends on what our final exam schedule is.

Steve Malley said...

Woop! They really are putting some marketing muscle behind you-- great stuff! :-D

Pax Deux, I'm not sure, but I'll try to find out.

You can change your order if you like, but if you ordered from Amazon, the sad truth is that they would be cheaper than the independent bookstore.

Charles, I think it's a Saturday.

Steve, I wish that were true, but unfortunately all these requests for interviews actually took the HC publicist by surprise. I'm biting my tongue here...

Pax Deux said...

You made me laugh with the HC "surprise" story! It reminds me of when a very distinguished faculty member was left speechless upon hearing that I won a grant. He apparently had recommended someone else for, and was certain his pick wood win.

Don't bite your tongue, just smirk and enjoy it.

Lainey said...

FINALLY! Looking forward to having this book in my hands. I'll call the Garden District Book Shop.

All the best with the release...and the book signing/interviews!

cs harris said...

Pax Deux, well, you got the last laugh, didn't you?

Lainey, I just got my first copy this week.

Orannia, thank you. I'm not looking forward to that week of radio interviews.
