Much of my summer is spent selling books. We go to conventions, contact bookstores, set up book signings and Christmas promotions. From mid-May through August, I spend more time out of my office than I do in it. In fact, I've already clocked over 3,000 miles in May.
The problem with traveling is that sometimes I hit a motel without wireless internet. (Yes, those behind-the-times locations do still exist.) No internet = no e-mail and no blogging. Then, when I get back to the office, there's the mountain of catch-up work to do before I take off for the next trip.
Therefore, I apologize in advance for a sporadic posting to this site. Please don't think I've forgotten your questions. I haven't--and I promise I will get to them. I will post daily when I'm in town and when my work schedule allows it, so check back often. But for the summer, if I miss a few days here and there, please be understanding.
(BTW--I have been amazed at the response to this blog. I very much appreciate all the kind and wonderful e-mailed comments I've been getting. I also enjoy reading your opinions on what I have posted--whether you agree or disagree. I'm sure other readers of this blog would love reading your comments and opinions as much as I do. I encourage all of you to consider posting comments and opinions in the comments trails, and e-mailing questions to me.)
