Not long to go now.
This afternoon I am planning a trip to Walgreens to get “travel size” packs of shaving cream and toothpaste. Then I’m going to get my suitcase from the basement. Then I’m going to fill the suitcase with books.
And I am here to tell you two things:
First of all, Penguin have thrown caution to the wind and have reduced the e-book price of A GOOD AMERICAN to a frankly ridiculous $1.99 for a couple of weeks to co-incide with the publication of the new book. You can grab it here. I’m not quite sure when this offer ends, but I do know it won’t last for ever. So if you never got around to reading it when it came out, that’s OK, really, but – well, now’s your chance.
Second of all, for those of you who like audiobooks, Penguin have released an excerpt of KITES for you to listen to on Soundcloud. I chose the narrator, Ari Fliakos, and I really like what he’s done. It’s a super-smart reading, to my ears. He’s really paid attention to each word – and, as an author, I don’t know that I could ask for more. Anyway, check it out and let me know what you think.
