Carla, I did all sorts of stuff to keep you off my back for October, because I have to finish this book in October. First, Mike over at KTF did a really amazing job on the website for The Dust of 100 Dogs. We're in the final tweak stages, but you're welcome to drop by and have a look. Check it out. I FINALLY went to Clinton Book Shop and met Rob and Harvey, who are very much made of awesome. The shop is great and I look forward to a signing there one day. And wow - Clinton is such a gorgeous town. I can't wait to take the family. But I have to find a way to avoid 78 through PA. Dag. That is some bad road. I then went down to The Chester County Book and Music Company in West Chester. I have to say, anyone in the area who hasn't been to CCBMC has got to go. It is one of the largest bookstores I've ever been in. It's got a killer art section that I have to physically avoid or else I'd spend all of my money, not to mention an enormous selection of everything else you could possibly need. Next week, Moravian Bookshop to meet Stephanie, send the rest of my galleys, and start pricing bookmarks at night. See? I'm not a slacker Carla. I promise. I am getting out and meeting really cool people and thinking about life beyond my very messy, very unorganized desk. Will someone PLEASE remind me to get to the library TOMORROW. An Abundance of Catherines is due back and I need to renew it.

Under Construction. Seriously.

Yes, I know this blog is listed on my blogger profile, and I see I'm already getting some visitors. And I dig that. But please know that this is a blog under construction. It will be a few months before I allow Carla to push me into all these great plans she has. I really have to finish this new book before I come around here - ahem - regularly.
