The rest is marketing, part one


A reading! A book signing! A round of drinks for all takers immediately afterwards (location TBD)!

  1. *whimpers* I so want to come! Maybe we'll get a good tax refund ...

  2. Michelle, if not in April, then sometime. You and Davin and I can always figure out the geographical point midway between the three of us, and we can meet there. It'll be like we're spies for three different countries. We can exchange hugs on a bridge at midnight.

    Loren, this will be fun for me I'm sure, but I'm sort of looking forward more to the reading my pal Layne Maheu and I will be doing in a pub. Me, a microphone and beer. That's good stuff. It'll be like when I was in a band.

  3. I wish I could be there, too. The book is very good!

    Knock 'em dead, break a leg, etc.

  4. I'd say it's a merely competent book, but thanks! There is too much "Hamlet" in it. Not enough Stifter.

    I think I'll try to arrange a reading in Boise this summer. That might be more convenient for my Utah friends. It's unlikely I'll make my way to the prairie.

  5. (Tom), are you on Goodreads by any chance? Would you be willing to write something there about the book? I will not be offended if you say no.

  6. That is funny. One of the book's strong features, I thought, was that it had just the right amount of "Hamlet."

    I am not really on Goodreads or anything similarly. One of many technologies I do not quite get. I have an idea for a place where I might mention your book on the old bloggo, but that won't be for quite a while.

  7. Perhaps what I mean is that it needs more "Green Eggs and Ham."

    I understand about not really understanding Goodreads or Librarything. They confuse and annoy me, but I was told to have an author presence on them so I do. You're under no obligation to shill for my book, of course. I'm waiting for your series on Schopenhauer's Essays &cet; I'd like to see you deconstruct it as if it was a novel.

  8. Congrats! Here's hoping you make it to the SF Bay area...there are quite a few book bloggers strewn around here.

    Looking forward to reading it!

  9. Schopenhauer-as-novelist is a good idea. My confidence is insufficient for the task. It is a good idea, though.

    Some of Thomas Bernhard's novels can seem like implementations of the idea, fake Schopenhauer as actual novel.

  10. Dwight, the Bay Area might even be possible. Hmm. Also, I am reminded to mention that if you have one of those hated e-reader devices, review copies are free.

    (Tom), I like the "fake Schopenhauer as actual novel" idea. Have I said that I have an idea for a novel in the shape of Wittgenstein's Tractatus? I might even write that one, too.

  11. Having just returned from the Bay Area, I'm hoping that a reading there is possible: it's gorgeous! (We could take the train. A whistle stop book tour!)

  12. I could dress like Tycho Brahe, with a golden nose and a turban. Yes, I think I'd like that.
