Then I ego-surfed and found the blurb below.
So: You go give a reading in far-off lands, someone buys one of your books and has you sign it, and then sells it on Abebooks with a 900% mark-up. (So, that was what was up with the one dude who didn't want his name in it.) Cojones with a nicely reduced sauce of gall. Well, given the complete and utter lack of attention for my book in the States: Good luck, my friend!
(But if that copy sells, I'm-a-gonna get me an Abebooks seller account. Like pronto.)
Anyway, and also: My final public appearance as a writer ever (I'm sick and tired of flying for hours and plunking down hundreds of dollars to meet 5 folk -- honestly) will be at PEN World Voices at the end of this month. Something in a bar, something on a panel. Nothing major. Stay away, in droves, and go see Nadeem Aslam instead. Or Lou Reed -- a fellow member of the Syracuse-loathers club -- if you must.
