This has been an exciting week! No…wait….that deserves more. This has been an exciting week!!!!!!! Okay, there. You can now feel the excitement, right?
My memoir, conveniently titled “The Dog Lived (and So Will I)” was included in the “BEA Buzz Books: Excerpts from Thirty Top Fall 2012 Titles.” Others on the list include Barbara Kingsolver, Jasper Fforde, Neil Young (he too has a memoir out in the fall…what a copycat!), and Junot Diaz. And then, of course, me. Ha! (Which one of these things is not like the other??).
Then my wonderful publisher put up a page on their website highlighting some of their fall list and their BEA (Book Expo America–think “Fashion Week” but for books!) author signing schedule…and there I am again! And the book! And, and, and….if you click through and click on my book cover (surely by now you will recognize it…what with Seamus staring back at you) you can read the first three chapters. So go on, scoot… READ AN EXCERPT. It’s right there. Just CLICK. I’d love to hear what you think…well, if it’s good. Not sure I’m up to any bad reviews yet (especially, you know, on my own blog.)
Happy Dance!! (Seamus is doing it too, but that might just be because there is food nearby.)
