There's a lot to catch up on -- the event at Aunt Agatha's in Ann Arbor, the event last night at Centuries and Sleuths, Gary's plan to save America with fast trains -- but the last few days have been too hectic for a proper blog post, and in the next hour I leave the US for another year. So it'll all have to wait until I get home. I have an afternoon flight from Chicago to LA (about 4 hours), a layover of 4 hours during which I have to get through security for the second time that day, then a 15 hour flight home and at least another 2 hours after that. Estimated total awake time: 33 hours. Not that I'm whining or anything...
So I'll leave you for now with two lovely and very kind posts from my friends:
Anthony Pacheco's funny blog post on why can't that Corby character write faster; and
Stephanie Thornton's review of The Pericles Commission.
In the acknowledgements for book 2 (which I've already written) I said right at the start that I don't feel like an author so much as the point man for Team Gary. So many people have helped me, out of the goodness of their hearts, both in the past and during this tour. It's simply incredible. Thank you all!
