Fun Interview on WMJI- FM, Cleveland.

I used to listen to John Lanigan as a kid growing up in Lakewood, Ohio. A thrill to be on the radio this morning with him and Jimmy Malone on the Lanigan and Malone Morning Show.

What a Week!

It's been an incredible first full week since my book was released. Highlights included newspaper and magazine reviews, interviews, and a television segment filmed right here in my office. Best of all, I received wonderfully enthusiastic emails from complete strangers kind enough to take the time and tell me why they liked the book. 

I want to thank everyone who has been so enthusiastic in their comments and support.

I've also been fortunate to get some excellent attention... most recently from People magazine, which named Bill Warrington's Last Chance to its "Good Read" section in the August 23 section. If you're interested in reading what others have to say about the book, you can find recent reviews here.

 This week looks to be just as exciting. I'm pleased to be featured on Mia Starr's unique and inspirational blogs, Four Days a Week. Check out "Monday Musings" for a conversation with... moi. Thank you, Mia!
Speaking of blogs, I'm also honored to be a guest blogger this week at "The Author's Desk" on the Penguin USA site. Today's post: "Thanks, Not for Us."

Finally August...

... and after more than a year since I learned that Viking would be publishing it, Bill Warrington's Last Chance will finally be released. I don't mind saying that this has been one of the longest years of my life, but also one of the most rewarding.

There's no way to describe my feelings, which range from elated to terrified, so I'll just focus on what's ahead this month.
  1. Release of the book. If you haven't ordered it online from your favorite bookstore, it will hit the bookshelves later this week or early next.
  2. Television interview on August 21, New Haven, Connecticut. (News 8/WCTX MY TV9 -- 7:30 a.m. Yep, that's 'a.m.' )
  3. First "official" book reading on August 22 at the LaGrua Center in Stonington, Connecticut.
  4. Readings/signings at the Barnes and Noble, Minneapolis and at the Borders-Westlake, near my hometown of Lakewood, Ohio.
And away we go...
