What are you doing this coming Sunday, August 23?

If you live in the Triangle area, I know what you should be doing: Attending my reading at Fearrington's lovely McIntyre's Fine Books store. I'll be reading to support the sales of Overthrowing Heaven, but if we can get a decent-size crowd I'm considering doing something I've never done before: reading a goodly bit of the novel in progress, Children No More.

If that's not enough to tempt you to attend, and if the lovely McIntyre's won't do it, then perhaps the prospect of eating brunch at Fearrington's The Old Granary restaurant or wandering the lovely grounds or checking out the Belted Galloway Cows will do it.

Finally, if none of that is enough to lure you, then perhaps this will: Dave and Jennie have pledged to do a joint stripper pole dance if the crowd is huge and enthusiastic.

Okay, that's a lie, an utter fabrication of my demented brain and actually not a scene I'd like to witness, but who knows what we could talk others into doing if enough of us beg and plead?

Maybe I should stop now.


Okay, so come on out and hear me read this Sunday.

Would you consider broadcasting the reading through U-Stream?

We could even send you questions over the feed.

Either way, good luck.

I don't have time for the setup, and I don't think the bookstore would like it, but it is an intriguing idea.

I wish I lived in the area as I would think this would be a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Ah well, New Jersey is just too far for this field trip. Best of luck and I really hope the event is successful. If you can please comment on it and put up some pictures so we can get a feel for what is was like......Chris....

Yeah, NJ is too long a drive. I will try to put up some pictures and discuss the event tomorrow night.
