Life is so weird. Steven Tyler from Aerosmith was at the Tattered Cover on Friday, when I had my book signing. I did not, in fact, get a chance to ask him if “Dude Looks Like a Lady” was actually about Vince Neil from Motley Crue. (But I have my suspicions.)
As always, the Tattered Cover was a fantastic place to do a book signing, and I’m eternally grateful to all of the wonderful people there for having me. Sorry about the mess.
I did get the chance to make new friends and talk about the inspirations behind A Kiss Before Doomsday, including secret underground bunkers, magic crystals, go-go boots, demon-possessed muscle cars, and the fact that zombies don’t drive. At least as far as I know.
Then I read one of my favorite scenes, answered a bunch of questions from my endlessly smart readers, and gave away handfuls of brightly colored crystals – in this case, sucrose crystals. (Rock candy!) Afterward, we celebrated at the scrumptious restaurant next door, modestly called The Goods.
None of it would’ve been possible without my unstoppable agent Kristin Nelson, my tireless editor Rene Sears, all of the good folks at Pyr, and most of all, the support of readers like you. Thank you so much for making this book a success!
Funny, I thought the Tattered Cover would have maybe four or five books on hand…
The real kiss before doomsday. (Or at least, before the book signing.)
I’m a fairly tall guy, but my friend and fellow Colorado author Kevin Wolf is six-foot-six.
True story: my lovely wife’s go-go boots are so fabulous that I actually put them in the book. Watch for the scene where Dru goes undercover at a sorcerer’s masquerade. These are the boots.
Now available in paperback, ebook, and my favorite format of all – cake!
The coveted “golden bookmark” from the inestimable Tattered Cover. This is seriously cool. I don’t feel worthy.
