Jami drops us a note about her tour:
I'm at the tail end of my book tour for the paperback of my story collection Instant Love and I'm weary but happy. I know some authors really hate touring. They don't like to be away from home or they don't like standing in front of audiences or they don't like getting on and off planes every other day but oh my goodness do I love it. It's totally exhausting but it just makes me realize that there is a whole wonderful world out there of interesting people who love books. It almost makes me a little pro-America even. (Almost.)
Anyway, on Sunday I'm swinging by Bethesda, MD (a town I am very familiar with because my mother grew up there and I still have family in the Rockville area) to read at the Writer's Center. I think I have some family members coming to this event, but I would really love to see some new faces. I will probably read something only mildly dirty from Instant Love (I try not to read sex scenes during daylight hours as a rule), and I am also going to read a little bit from my new novel The Kept Man, which will be published by Riverhead Books in December. I hope some of the Happy Booker readers can make it out!
(tHB adds: anyone care to send us a FotHB report on the event?)
