August Book Photo Challenge Day 15: Book Store
juliagoolia999 and I outside Books Inc. getting ready to meet Edan Lepucki and Stephan Eirik Clark! We were pretty excited.

All the book clubs I’ve met on tour have one thing in common: THEY’RE ALL SUPER ADORABLE PEOPLE.

August Book Photo Challenge Day 17: A Book Set in Your State or Town

So, I think California qualifies for this one! Also I got to meet Edan Lepucki and we talked about tumblr and wool socks. 

"Frida in good socks."

Thanks for coming out to the event!

embarrassedandsorry said: Fuck you for spoiling Gone Girl. I spent real dollars on your book only to get to page 94 and stop reading it, because I now hate you. Which is ironic because the chapter that contains the spoiler is discussing how likability of a character is unrelated to literary worth.

Let me know your PayPal address and I will refund the purchase price of the book, but Gone Girl has been out for three years. 

Ah! Who talks to people like this? (When I read that first sentence my eyes widened involuntarily, O polite and nervous Canadian that I am.) And if you’re so desperate to know what happens in Gone Girl, why are you reading an entirely different book?

I just got an email from a reader about my ending.  He was not satisfied. And he felt the urge to tell me.  Sometimes I think readers forget that writers are, you know, real people.
