See you all in NY. Meanwhile, this is pretty neat:
Why not bake them in casserole dishes?
Amazon has yet to post the endorsements, but I figured you all would want to know that my new novel is finally available. A few things I should add:
As in the case of my Japan book, the "launching" of this one will again be at the Bluestockings Bookstore, 172 Allen St., NYC (Lower East Side), on April 4 at 7 p.m. Would love to see you all there again, perhaps go out for pizza at Rosario's after we're done, as we did last September. My publisher is also trying to get me a gig in Brooklyn during the time I'm in NY (April 3-6), but so far no fish on the line. (Stay tuned.) In addition, having a 3rd NY Wafer Summit Meeting (i.e., lunch) is still a possibility for one of those days, if we can rustle up enough interested Waferinos. I know some of you have written me about this, but do me a favor: if you are an active participant on this blog, and you would like this to happen, send me a message at email@example.com indicating this, and also giving me your blog handle. If it's a go, I shall get back to you with time and place. And in any case, I hope to see you at Bluestockings and/or Brooklyn, if that gets worked out.
Thanks again for your support-
