Most of you who read the CockleBur frequently know that I have a memoir that Crown/Random House is publishing. Well, we now have a definitive publication date: August 7th. Annie and I will be busy between now and then promoting the book from a number of angles. If major promotional stuff comes up, I will post those here at the Bur. For relatively minor stuff, I will post them on my Facebook author page, which I recently launched. Check it out here.

We also have a finished book cover, below. And you can pre-order the book at a number of online locations:

Barnes and Noble:


Indie Bound:

Thanks to everyone who has already ordered the book. More importantly, thank you to all those who helped me along the way. You simply don’t have things like memoirs being published without some serious help from others.
