Okay, stop and take a few breaths, Kim.
It’s been a crazy few weeks. As you probably know, Friday brings my fourth new release this month (Astounding!). Not to mention The Tin Box on audio (read by the wonderful KC Kelly) and releases of Italian and Japanese translations. On top of that, I’m in edits for Rattlesnake, which comes out at the end of August, plus my novella in Spirit, the 4th Gothika anthology (which will be out in October).
And I’m getting ready for a family trip to the Pacific Northwest, which will include live book readings in Seattle and Portland (see my events page for details).
I’m a university professor, so usually June’s fairly quiet for the day job. But this month I’m working on revisions for a new edition of a textbook I co-wrote. And because my area of expertise is hate crime, the terrible shooting in Charleston means I’ve been fielding a lot of media inquiries. Last week I was interviewed live on Wisconsin Public Radio. This week I’ve been answering questions for a Colombian weekly newsmagazine.
And I have blog parties and blog tours coming up too. I’m also trying to keep my 12-year-old entertained.
So I’m going to take a few more calming breaths before running off. What have you been up to?
