If you are reading this when it is scheduled to appear, on Wednesday May 22nd or there-abouts, then at this moment I am in one of several possible places: mountain biking the Virginia Creeper, jumping out of a plane over some obscure Appalachian DZ, or rafting the New River Gorge.
The Millions says I am supposed to embrace the paperback. They say I am supposed to embrace the new cover. They say I am supposed to embrace a new start. They say great things can happen.
Far be it for me to argue with The Millions, but I'd say great things have already happened, from interviews to speaking opportunities to an opera, after all.
