I haven't had time to pop in and talk about my writing lately. That's because I've been far too busy simply doing it. Or trying to, anyway. This book's late, that book's late, another book's behind schedule and will probably be late. My writing plate overfloweth.
But that doesn't mean I've become a complete hermit, holed up in a cave with a laptop and a coffee maker. (Though I must say, that does sound pretty appealing right now.) I have a new book coming out in a couple weeks -- the fourth in the Nick and Tesla middle-grade mystery series -- so no caves for me. It's time for a Steve Hockensmith-style media blitz!
Of course, a Steve Hockensmith-style media blitz isn't quite the same thing as, say, a Tom Cruise media blitz. Tom shows up on all the chat shows, appears on every magazine cover, does all-day interview sessions with a mile-long parade of reporters, then caps it all off by going door to door to kiss babies and talk about his new movie.
Now I hope you'll excuse me. I think I'm going to pack up my laptop and my coffee maker and go look for a nice, quiet cave....
