I just had an email from an events coordinator at a local library who invited me to a guest appearance in the next month or so to talk about Nine Planets. Following a brief introduction, the library website proclaims, the author speaks about [his] text, reads excerpts and answers questions from the audience pertaining to the text, writing experience and research [he] has conducted. The evening concludes with book sales and signing. I also get wine and cheese!
I’m rather chuffed! Books, (a little) wine, cheese and talking about books, particularly mine, sounds like a particularly fine way to spend an evening. I’ll let you know when it is if you want to come along.
