print and in a Kindle-exclusive--how controversial of me--e-book edition) was just published by BOA Editions. The demands of fatherhood having basically prevented me from embarking on an ambitious book tour, or even a small one, for which I feel bad, not just because I'm depriving you of the awesome experience of my readings, but because BOA did me the great good turn of bringing out the book, and I owe it to them to promote the darn thing. Plus, I like reading--it's the last vestige of performance in my life (I did comedy once a upon a time, you see).
So, I've decided to borrow some tricks from Dorothea Lasky, who conduced her virtual Tiny Tour for her first book, and from some video reviews I did for eBookNewser, and do my own little virtual book tour.
Here's the plan: I'll post probably three ten-minute readings--three is enough, I think--in which it'll just be me reading stories from Cradle Book. If anyone bothers to tune it, I think it'll be a smashing success. If not, I'll still have fun making the videos. I'll try to keep 'em lively. These events will be BYOWAC (bring-your-own-wine-and-cheese). I'll try to post the first one tonight or tomorrow. More info and/ or a reading coming soon.
