Book Touring and Talking

I’m off to New York tomorrow, for the official start of the book tour for Day After Night, my new novel. I’ll be in Manhattan, Long Island, and Atlanta this week. Check my website ( to see where and when.

In fact, the “tour” began last week, with a reading at my wonderful local bookstore, Newtonville Books, and several on-line and radio interviews.

I adore radio interview. Hosts of radio book shows are the most literate and prepared interviewers I have ever encountered. Even better than print, for some reason. From coast to coast, male or female, young and old, folks who choose this work are simply wonderful at their jobs.

First of all, they’ve read the book. (Not something I take for granted.) And then they take the time not only to come up with good questions, but to shape the conversation — regardless of how much time we have — with a beginning, middle and end. It’s always a pleasure.

The other day, I spoke with a real master, Ron Charles, of the Washington Post. If you’re interested, you can click on the link below and listen in.

    Hello Anita,

    I enjoyed seeing you at the Margaret Mitchell House on Wednesday and especially enjoyed dinner afterwards!

    Thanks for coming South to share your book with us.
