Today is a very special occasion for me – it’s the official publication day of my first book, Rowing The Atlantic, Lessons Learned on the Open Ocean. It also signals the start of my US book tour, with two radio interviews and a book signing.
The book signing is tonight, at Barnes & Noble on New York’s Upper West Side at 2289 Broadway @ 82nd St, from 7:00-8:30 pm.
If you’re not in the New York area, you might still be able to catch me on one of these radio shows:
West Coast: I’ll be joining Kelly Fuller by telephone on KVON-AM “Kellie in the Morning” at 7.15am Pacific Time – DOH! UPDATE! No sooner had I posted this blog than my publicist from Simon & Schuster called to say that this interview has been rescheduled to Oct 12 so I can get a longer timeslot on air. So no need to tune in today. Sorry! All very hectic here, with new opportunities opening up and other ones being upgraded. I’ll keep you abreast of developments as they happen!
East Coast: I’ll be in the studio with Leonard Lapate of WNYC-FM for the “Leonard Lopate Show” between 12:40-1:00 pm Eastern Time. This is a PBS affiliate, so hopefully the interview may be more widely broadcast.
Must run – the West Coast interview is about half an hour from now – and I still need to have my post-workout shower! Not that you can tell on the radio, of course, but it’s going to be a busy day, and I want to be ready and raring to go and feeling on tippy top form!
Just before I go – if you have already received your copy from Amazon or bought it from your local bookstore, please do post a review on Amazon. It really helps to boost sales, so I’d hugely appreciate it.
And thanks for your patience in waiting for your limited edition Larabar bookmarks. The empty Larabar wrappers are now on their way to my dear mother in England, and she will be getting busy assembling and laminating. But she’s a one-woman operation so it may take a bit of time. I know you’ll be understanding – and rest assured we’ll get them to you just as soon as we can!
