radio interview

If you missed it on Saturday morning because you were sleeping or watching cartoons or out enjoying beautiful, pre-monsoon weather, my interview with Barry Eva of A Book and a Chat is now online for your listening enjoyment!

I really enjoyed this one. We talked a bit about books and writing, of course, but we also covered a range of topics from Back to the Future to Quantum Leap, two topics I can discuss for hours. Barry even slipped in a reference to the classic SF film Short Circuit! Given that the format for the program is “a chat over a cup of tea,” you might be wondering what my beverage of choice was throughout the half-hour interview.

It’s obvious, really. I was, in fact, sipping Earl Grey.

Please give the program a listen and leave some feedback. It’s short, it’s entertaining, and perhaps even enlightening. Many thanks to Barry for the great conversation!

While you’re at it, you can also check out interviews with my fellow Apocalypsies, Sarvenaz Tash (The Mapmaker and the Ghost, due out this Tuesday, 4/24!), J. Anderson Coats (The Wicked and the Just, just released!), and Lynne Kelly (Chained, due out 5/8/12).

a book and a chat

Tomorrow morning (Saturday, April 21) at 11 a.m. EST, I will be talking with Barry Eva, author of the YA romance Across the Pond, on his radio show A Book and a Chat. I like tea and talking about writing and books, so I’m looking forward to this! If you’re awake that early on the weekend, you can grab your own cup of caffeine and chat with us too, by calling into the program at 347-237-5398. Call! Ask questions!

fair coin readings

Last Friday, I gave my first reading of Fair Coin to a small crowd at the Philadelphia Fantastic reading, hosted by Oz Fontecchio at Robin’s Bookstore & Moonstone Arts Center. It’s a little known fact that I don’t throw parties often because I’m paranoid that no one will come; I don’t know many people in Philadelphia and even fewer have heard of me, so I expected only a handful of guests, but I was pleasantly surprised to see many dear friends at the event, and I even made some new ones. (The usual way, not out of clay, or anything like that.) I read three short excerpts, which were well received, and sold and signed more books than I expected. Many thanks to Oz and Robin’s for such a shiny welcome to this new author and his book.

You might be wondering how you can hear me read from Fair Coin. It just so happens there are a few opportunities coming up in the next week:

I will be interviewed tonight/early tomorrow morning on Jim Freund’s radio program, Hour of the Wolf on WBAI 99.5 FM, from 1:30 a.m. to 3:00 a.m. I’ve been on the show lots of times with my writing group, but this is my first not-quite-solo appearance; agent extraordinaire Eddie Schneider from JABberwocky Literary will join me. If you’re awake, you can listen on the radio (if you still have one of those) or stream the station live at http://www.wbai.org. If you’re asleep by then, the episode will be available in the archive for two weeks.

The show may be a terrible tactical error, because tomorrow morning I’m reading at 10:00 a.m. at the Inwood branch of the NYPL with authors Jessica Rothenberg, Léna Roy, Mark Schulman, and Arlaina Tibensky, in the NYC Big Read, part of the NYC Teen Author Festival. The word of the day will be COFFEE. (I’ll also be signing books with fifteen other authors at Books of Wonder on Sunday, April 1, from 2:30 – 3:15.)

Finally, next Tuesday, April 3, at 7:00 p.m., I’ll be reading at the NYRSF Readings series at the Soho Gallery for Digital Art with Alaya Dawn Johnson, who has a great new book out called Wicked City. There will also be a guest appearance by Sam Weber, one of my favorite artists, who made the awesome cover for Fair Coin!

I’ll have some Fair Coin swag at all the readings and signings, if you need a little more incentive to attend. I look forward to seeing lots of friends and meeting other readers!
