BEA 2015 and Why I’m Not There (But My Book Is!)

Yikes. It’s been over two months since I posted something. Bad writer, bad writer.

Well, that’s what work will do to you. My book is being promoted at the Book Expo America (BEA) in New York City this week, but I’m not there…because I live in Japan. And, of course, because the Japanese academic year just started. No, really, it did. The year begins with the fiscal year, in April, and the first term ends in late July/early August. Much as I’d love to visit the US, and especially New York, it’s just not possible right now…but not to worry, the whirlwind book signing / relative-visiting trip will come in August, just in time for the end of the Glens Fall Dragons season (ideally).

Aaaand, baseball season started, and I returned to the traditional Mets fan high-low-very low-damn them again-why do I torture myself every year with this-ah, hell, they’re getting better, I guess-remember 1986? cycle of vicarious baseball watching/listening/reading games whenever I can life. The 13-hour time difference makes for a challenging sleep schedule.

So, yeah, that’s my excuse, and I’m sticking to it. Now, who’s up for a game of Parrises squares?
