Mostly Politics and Prose

I think that the London event went very well -- the organisers were very happy that 700 people showed up, and I was happy that a lot of them decided against gettting into the signing line, and instead bought pre-signed books, or just went off.

I haven't yet really coped with Mike Ford's death. It was unexpected and knocked me for a loop. He was my friend and the world feels emptier and meaner right now. I'll see if I can find my introduction to his book of short stories...

Here's a Making Light post about Mike.

This came in from Seale at HarperCollins about the Washington DC event on Friday:

I spoke with Cleve Corner today and because they have had a huge response to their upcoming event with you, POLITICS & PROSE is moving the event off site to a larger venue just down the street. The new location is:

Wesley United Methodist Church
5312 Connecticut Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20008

The store will send out two additional email blasts to their customer base, as well as follow up with everyone who has contacted the store about the event. There will be a sign at the store as well telling people to come just down the street to the larger venue (store is at 5015 Connecticut Avenue NW).

Cleve is very excited about the response to the event and just wants to make sure that everyone is as comfortable as possible, and the evening is a huge success.
