www.shimmerthebook.com And it’s on a new Web site, although it’s basically just an address to host the trailer. I like the trailer very much. I could say it’s not like the book, not technically accurate, in a hundred ways. But it is absolutely like the book, absolutely accurate in how it feels and what is captured, in a hundred more. And so I like it very much. Ridiculously enough, I still struggle to explain, quickly, what the book is about. But now I’ll just send people to the trailer. Readings coming up: Chattanooga, Rock Point Books, June 18th, 7 pm. Memphis, Davis Kidd Booksellers, June 30, 6 pm. You are invited. Your friends are invited. Their friends and their family and everyone you’ve ever known are invited. Which sounds a little callous and self-interested. I hope not. Technically, the book is now being sold via Amazon. And I saw it in Bookstar a few miles from home. And I’m doing a reading on the 18th. But, in truth, the book is still not really out, released, published, hasn’t arrived in every bookstore that will sell it, for a few more weeks. So, to some extent, I’m still holding back. Still waiting. Just a few weeks more. Thanks for listening.There’s a trailer now, a preview basically, of Shimmer.
