What a long yesterday. I got up at 4:00 a.m. to drive to San Diego to appear on a couple of morning talk shows, then had to kill the whole day down there before an in-store appearance at the Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore. Well, fortunately, there are card rooms in San Diego, so killing the day proved to be no problem. Even better, the TV appearances drove some traffic to the in-store, plus a whole bunch of other people came and it was just a fun, lively, wonderful evening of writers talking about writing, cracking jokes, eating cake and (me) selling a ton of books. Really one of those moments that makes the whole book launch thingie feel worthwhile.

One of the TV shows was kind enough to give me a recording of my appearance, and I’ve posted it to YouTube. If you want to see me working a completely lame version of the Hat Trick proposition bet, complete with bogus invisible magical straw, do please click here. If you want to do something else, do that instead. If you haven’t yet ordered/bought/read/enjoyed The Albuquerque Turkey, what are you waiting for? It’s the book that The Literate Kitty called “all-out satisfying feel-good fun,” and while I don’t generally take the word of cats, in this instance I believe I shall.

More later, -jv
