I will shortly get around to putting these events in a sidebar on the blog, with links to the relevant sites, but thought I would share them here first. Really everyone is welcome at the book party, only it is not OK to post someone's personal address on the internet like this, so write me at my Columbia email if you would like more details on that! (I will be sending out invitations via Facebook and email later this month.)

4/2 Book event/Q&A
Book Culture
536 W. 112th St. (near corner of Broadway)
New York, NY

4/9 Party in NYC, 6-9pm, email me for details

4/13 Reading, Writers With Drinks
The Make-Out Room
3225 22nd St., San Francisco, CA
7:30-9:30pm (doors open at 7)

4/17 Book event/Q&A
Rose Contemporary Fine Art Gallery
492 Congress St., Portland, ME

I'm definitely open to doing more events if opportunity arises, so if you are in a position to facilitate something along those lines, let's consult - but with the proviso that because Amazon's literary imprint is the publisher of The Magic Circle, a lot of the independent booksellers that normally would host readings etc. for this kind of book are not so keen! I think that's a pity, but of course I understand where they're coming from.

I will also be doing some kind of a blog tour, and would love to answer interview questions or write guest posts in late March or April, so please do get in touch if that's something you might be interested in.

(Postscript: I got a very good review from Kirkus, which won't be available for free online for another couple weeks, but the Amazon advance reader reviews are distinctly negative! Those are through the Amazon Vine program, and we will hope that reviews by people who actually purchase it are better. If you do read it and enjoy it, I request with only minor shame, please think about writing a review there or at GoodReads to let other people know? You won't be able to post a review until after March 26, the official publication date.)

OK, that's it for self-promotion, for now at least....


  1. Indian Forex updates, Forex Market of India, Indian Stock Exchange News, India and Pakistan Forex Changes updates and Currency International Exchange Rates

  2. I'm looking forward to reading it! I heard from your publicist - it should be coming my way soon. As to the amazon reviews...oh, how I LOATHE them! My book has been slayed over there as well. It's silly to be bothered by amazon reviewers when a place like Air & Space Magazine says such wonderful things but you can't help it - hard to ignore them. SIGH.
