My local newspaper, The Albany Times-Union, just ran a feature article about me.
Yes, I find that vaguely horrifying but also a good thing, I suppose.
It’s nice to be seen.
It’s funny, in this business people will commonly say things like, “If this book reaches just one kid, impacts just one child, it’s all worth it.”
And I always think: Yeah, no.
I’d like to reach a lot more than that.
Articles like this help.
Thank you, good folks at the Times-Union newspaper for making this happen. Just one question: What’s a newspaper?
Ha, ha, ho. Sorry, that hurts.
Naturally, it took me 48 hours before I could actually force myself to read Jim Shahen’s piece. Today I wrote and thanked him for making me not look too much like a total blithering idiot. Some writer!
Anyway, perhaps my out-of-town fans will enjoy reading this . . .
