Racing

Bling is sinking in.
I've been racing around these days trying to get myself into the office for the full February of writing. Just hit the 40k mark on the new book moments ago, so that's cool. (Even though I kinda want to stab my eyes out because middles are always eye-stabbing.)

Here are some things: First, a letter to myself at 18. A difficult letter to write but it was cool to close my eyes and imagine what I would really say to her--that young thing.

Second: Did I tell you guys that PLEASE IGNORE VERA DIETZ is coming to audio? It is. Digital in March. CDs in April.

Third: I want you to see this review of VERA because the ladies at FYA are awesome.

Last: A great interview from a week or so ago at Bermudaonion's weblog.

I've been running random contests on Twitter. If you don't follow me, you should!
A.S. King on Twitter.

Also, it will soon be time to unveil the cover art for EVERYBODY SEES THE ANTS. I'll post it first on my Facebook fan page. So if you want to see it first, join up! I never send messages to my fans so fear not the FB spam!

And last: My next event will be at the AMAZING WORD bookstore in Brooklyn on March 15th. In the meantime, my 2011 schedule is getting hectic with all these cool award events to attend. If you want me to come to your school or to speak at your event, let Carla know at events@as-king.com and she will hook you up with brochures and all sorts of other cool stuff.

See you all in March. Or earlier if something comes up.

Aw man, why couldn't you be in Brooklyn this past weekend?

Oh, I keep meaning to share this. So this is not a pagoda, just a mere gazebo near where I live. I've always thought it's pretty cool, but now after reading Vera, it always reminds me of the pagoda. It's like the pagoda's itty, bitty little sister or something. I didn't take this picture, but here's a link:
