My Writing Life: GNOME ATTACK Mentioned by Mental Floss, and I’m Signing Books at Cincinnati’s Book Festival on Oct. 12, 2013

Screen-Shot-2013-08-14-at-10.30.26-AMSome news from my writing life: First off, I will be signing books at Cincinnati’s huge book festival, Books by the Banks, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 12, 2013, at the Duke Energy Convention Center in downtown Cincinnati. Come by and say hello! But there are way more reasons to pop by the festival than to see me. Here are a few other people in attendance (and you can find the whole list on the BBTB website):

  • Maria Semple, author of bestselling WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADETTE?
  • Stuart Woods, bestselling mystery writer
  • R.J. Palacio, author of WONDER
  • Fellow WD staffer Brian A. Klems, author of the humorous parenting book OH BOY, YOU’RE HAVING A GIRL






Secondly, it was very cool to see that my first humor book (2010), HOW TO SURVIVE A GARDEN GNOME ATTACK, was featured by Mental Floss, an awesome magazine I have peeked through for years. You can see the article here, but essentially it was a list of how-to books you won’t believe actually exist. Ha. Well, I’ll take it. Any press is good press.
