I just arrived in Monroe, North Carolina, my childhood home. Sitting at the dining room table of my father’s old farm house, a place where I spent many meals reading the book in my lap while we ate our meals, it seems a bit surreal to think of myself as a writer. Maybe it’ll take a few more books before I can. For now, I’m still just a book nut who managed to cobble a few of his own words together.
Tomorrow morning I’ll be on the local radio station WIXE (1190 on your trusty AM dial). It’ll probably be around 9:15 in the morning, but really, you should just tune in all day. It’s a great local AM station and the “Talk of the Town” show is a lot of fun. You can listen to their recorded programs on their website and get a taste for what I’m getting myself into.
On Thursday, it’s a triple-book-signing-package. In the morning (7-9) I’ll be at Alice Jules in downtown Monroe. From 11-2, I’ll be stationed outside The Oasis and get you hotdog-lovers taken care of. From 4-7 we’ll be invading Blu-Moon Cafe.
I’ll be there rain or shine. If you’re in the area, come by and see me.
