So this morning I sent an email to the book’s publicist giving her a link to WABE-FM’s “City Cafe” piece about the book launch this weekend. “Thank you,” she wrote back. “Did you know Braving the Fire is in “Vanity Fair” this month?” (I’m paraphrasing, but she was just about that calm.)
“What the what?” I asked the computer, using the Tina Fey as Liz Lemon expression that I love so much.
“Do you want me to send you a scan?” the nice publicist emailed.
Seeing as how I was still in my pajamas and sweatshirt (i.e. writing attire) and not prepared to go in search of a print copy until I had showered, dressed, and eaten a food product, I agreed as how she could.
