Hi everyone, I’m in New York on the second night of the actual tour. I got a couple of pieces of good news today.
1. The Korean translation of The World’s Strongest Librarian just sold. Any bets on what the title will translate to? My editor is convinced it will be called Sassy Boy.
2. The book has already gone back for a second printing, which is wonderful. Thank you all for the support and the purchases.
I also finally got to meet a lot of the sales team and the marketing brains behind the book. Very smart, very kind people. Meeting them all has been the best part by far.
My editor made a present for me out of my book–it’s called book folding, I think, and it won’t make any sense until I can get a better picture of it. More soon.
I also had a wonderful talk with Ron Hogan from The Handsell, ate some very good bagels, was disappointed that the armor exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art was closed today when we were there, and I got eat at Lupa last night, which is a restaurant so good that I don’t even know how to talk about it. Obscenely good.
Off to Atlanta tomorrow! Looking forward to seeing some of you there.
I’m about to start reading a memoir called Nine Lives, about a chef who sounds like quite a character. More to come soon.
