I am poised for the launch of NIGHT WATCH this week
So that moment has finally come, and I am poised for the launch of NIGHT WATCH this week. It’s always thrilling to anticipate the moment when the boxes of books are opened and readers get a chance to re-visit Coop and Chapman and Wallace – and respond to me.
The Book Review section of today’s NEW YORK TIMES – page 2 – has a glorious full page color ad, which brought calls and notes from friends all over the country. Tomorrow morning I start the day with Don Imus at 7:35. I love to do the IMUS show – he’s wonderfully smart and has that irreverent sense of humor that makes me smile, no matter what direction the interview takes. Then some interviews during the day for pieces that will run later on. On Tuesday morning, I do the TODAY SHOW in the 9am hour, and that’s always a gift, with so many loyal viewers. And Tuesday night, my familiar hometown debut at Barnes and Noble on E. 86th Street, with lots of friends on board (come say hello!). I hope you’ve noticed that I’m tweeting and face-booking and keeping our great-looking site current. I’ll be sending photos to be posted every day of the tour, so you can see where I am and who’s with me, as I hit most of my favorite bookstores around the country. And we’ve got new features in addition to the photo gallery – like LIVING HISTORY (much more to come), with articles that explore more of the real places that have been featured in each of the novels. Thanks for waiting for me – I’m hoping you get hooked on NIGHT WATCH – take it to the beach or on vacation or on the bus or subway as you commute – and most of all, I hope you enjoy!
