A short disquisition on the cover of my book

April 21st, 2021

In which I explain a bit of the concept.

It’s always a strange experience to hold in my hands the freshly printed copy of a book I’ve been laboring over for years. The realization that I can no longer make any changes is a bit confounding. The finality of it! Another nail in the coffin. What’s done is done. And of course, now what?

Well, I won’t have time to worry about that just yet given the barrage of interviews and podcasts I’m doing to publicize the book. And soon I will post here the glamorous book tour events that I will be doing virtually from my basement.

I’m sorry to hawk the book one more time, but I must do what I can to get people to pre-order. If you are so inclined, here are some places where you can do it. The Strand has a lovely special page up for it and is selling signed copies. And you can also get it from your local independent bookstore via Indiebound. And of course all the other places.
