Ho there, just a couple of reminders for today. First: the lovely and talented Uzma Aslam Khan's latest novel, Thinner Than Skin, is out now and widely available at such outlets as Amazon.com. If you haven't read her other books, you're in for a treat, as this one's a scorcher. If you have read her other stuff, well, you know how good she is, so go have fun.
And yes, it's a great title. And a great cover too!
On a completely unrelated topic, my appearance at the Strand Bookstore in NYC is looming large--just four days away now as I type this. I will be there on Wednesday, Oct 17 from 7 - 9pm, along with a number fellow writers Ben Ryder How, Elizabeth Nunez, Marisa de los Santos, and Alix Kates Shulman. We'll be discussing our books and the state of the publishing industry (I guess), along with whatever else anybody wants to ask. This is all part of the National Women's Book Association's events for October, which is Reading Group Month, and An Age of madness has been selected as a "Great Group Read" by these fine, discerning readers. So there you go!
Tomorrow I will perhaps write something about this addictive new sit I have joined, called SwapaCD.com. You can probably figure out what it does. Stay tuned.
