I’ve been working a lot lately to promote a new anthology of Lake Superior short stories, called “Going Coastal.” I’m finding that promoting a book written by a bunch of other authors versus a book written just by myself is a lot more fun. Having others to share in the workload of doing readings and events is well, way less solitary, and I enjoy helping to promote their writing careers.

We just had an event at a new local bookstore this week. A superb description of it can be found in “Ennyman’s Territory,” a local arts and culture blog written by Ed Newman. His story also includes a link to a recent review of the book.

And if you are ever in the Duluth area, stop by our newest independent book store, Zenith Books. If you love to read, you’ll feel right at home there.

  1. Glad you are getting a kick out of the book tour! I think it is a little cruel that authors not only have to write, but they need to speak, too! The introvert/extrovert boundary is a muddy one!

    • So true, Sharon! I’ve often thought that author readings should just consist of authors sitting quietly in a chair reading their book (with their eyes, not their mouth) while the audience watches.
