As I write this, it is 6:30 a.m., and you should know that I am not a morning person. I'm getting set to be interviewed on Tom Dunne's Newstalk radio show in Ireland, which is an exciting enough reason to rise out of bed so early. It's 11:30 a.m. over there. I actually thought for a second they would interview me when I was teaching in Las Vegas, and, for the briefest moment, we were trying to arrange a scenario where they called me from 7:30 a.m. their time and I would pick up the phone at 11:30 p.m. the previous day. Probably a good idea that never happened. (Real time update: Interview finished; Tom was very nice and an Irish accent is always nice to hear.)
Coverage & Interviews:
- The Life on the Balcony gardening site blogged about three tips taken from my book—including "construct a moat."
- Writer Kevin Sheridan bared his soul on his blog, recounting his close encounter with a garden gnome, and how therapy and my book helped him get over the vicious attack.
- "Bookshelf Detective" Kim Tomsic talked on her website about why she thinks How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack is a great holiday gift.
- Phil Comer, on his "All Write by Me" blog, did an amazing job writing out a "Gnome Rap" (!!!). Definitely worth a look-see.
And then there's the hilarious matter of eradicating the "invasive species" of garden gnomes, done by the Utah State University Extension Center:
