Tonight I will be interviewed on the Busted Halo show, on Sirius Satellite Radio. That's at 7:20 pm my time (Central), 8:20 on the East Coast.
Today was a good day for Desperate. Ever since "Breakfast with the Pope" came out, I have endeavored to do what all good authors must do and sell books. And today, I sold one. I was in Barnes and Noble, standing around the "Religion" aisle, looking admiringly at my book right there on the shelf. I do this a lot. It's my new hobby.
Anyway there was a woman standing a few feet away from me, browsing some other religion books. Well, I said to myself. She's obviously interested in the subject. I think I can help her out.
"That's my book," I said, pointing.
She looked confused. "Did you leave it there?"
"No no," I said. "I wrote it. It's my book."
"Oh, well then," she said. "Since I've met the author I suppose I have to buy it."
"Yes," I said. "Yes, that's what it means."
See? I think I'm getting pretty good at this author stuff.
