Odyssey Books

First of all, a big thank you to Odyssey Books in South Hadley for hosting me, and especially to Emily their events person, who made sure that everything went off all right. It was not a huge event, there were maybe 10 or 12 people in attendance, but people were interested and lively and I think we had a pretty good conversation. I read a bit and then people asked questions, about the new book, about the book I'm writing now, about Pakistan, about the last book I wrote and so on. So it was fun, and thanks everyone for coming out.

My next "event" will be at the Borders Bookstore in Farmington, Connecticut--yup, my hometown--on Sunday afternoon, April 20th, at 2pm. This will be followed on the weekend of the 25th by an appearance at the Newburyport Literary Festival, something for which I still have no information whatsoever. I'll post it when I get it. But if anyone is in central Connecticut on April 20th, come on over to the Borders near the Westfarms Mall and say howdy.

I live on the West Coast, but would love to have come. Glad you had a good time. Can't wait to hear about your next book myself.


Hi Nicole!

You've been writing all these nice reviews for me on Amazon, I believe... nice to finally meet you in person, sort of. Where on the coast are you? There is a chance (admittedly slim, and gettin' slimmer) that I'll be out there sometime later in the spring. It'd be great to say hello.

Yes! I'm a fan (not the scary kind, just the appreciative kind)... keep trying to get more people to read your books. I find you brilliant.

I'm in Northern California and if you came to San Francisco, I know a few more Maine fans who'd love to come to a signing.
