Q. What’s your greatest flaw?
August 30, 2010With the paperback release of DAY AFTER NIGHT, I'm doing a few readings around New England: New Hampshire last week, Vermont next week, then Connecticut and a few in Massachusetts. All events are at independent bookstores.
I would do most anything for the indies. They love readers and writers like crazy and it's pretty mutual.
We all buy online and from big box stores. But browsing and schmoozing and hanging amid human-sized bookshelves, attended by big-hearted and well-read booksellers? Now that's living.
