Live Free or Die!

No, this isn't an ad for the next Jon McClane movie (though you can bet your ass that I'll be in line for it, just after I see Knocked Up), rather it's an announcement that I'll be in New Hampshire this weekend for a book signing. (For those who don't get the reference: "Live free or die" is the state's motto, which cracks me up, like there are all these angry, anarchist rebels who inhabit the state.)

The details:

Barnes and Noble
1741 S Willow St. Manchester, NH 03103
Saturday, June 9th
2:00 PM

In other news, I just found out that we sold the German rights to TDLF. So for those of you who sprecken ze deutch, you can have a blast reading through the translation come 2008. :)

That's it for today. I'm busy getting the apartment in shape for our open house this weekend, and packing up the brood for the (long) drive tomorrow AM.

Hope to see some of you New Englanders there on Saturday!

Let me know if you ever get to PA!

Sue-I'll be there in October!

The motto dates back to the Revolutionary War, actually, so no anarchists, but revolutionaries and patriots. General John Stark, a war veteran, was invited to attend a reunion of the Battle of Bennington in Vermont, but he was old and in poor health by that point. Instead of attending, he sent a toast: "Live free or die; there are worse things than death."

Enjoy the Granite State; it's magnificently beautiful!

Awww, Allison - I just now saw this post, and I live only an hour from Manchester. I'm sorry I didn't get to come see you and gush over how much I enjoyed TDLF. If you ever get to the Seacoast of New Hampshire (say, Portsmouth?), or back to Manchester, please make sure to announce it - I'll be there with my copy in hand!

Aw, too bad, Alisha! Next time. :)

Sue- I'll be in Philadelphia on, I think, Oct 9th or around then.
