Lock up your daughters––it's Authors on Tour

authorstour.jpg

They don't travel with as many roadies as Monsters of Rock, but they're rolling into town just the same. Here's a little something to liven up your iPod or MP3 player. The Tattered Cover Book Store, a fine independent in Colorado, is featuring a lovely series of podcasts. Authors include Neil Gaiman, Frank McCourt, Clive Barker, Robert Hicks and Zadie Smith. You can play them through your browser, download them to iTunes and best of all, they're free. Thanks go out to T.L. Hines for telling me all about it.

I don't have any daughters. Can I offer up myself instead?

Absolutely. Just make sure you offer yourself to Neil Gaiman or maybe Carl Hiaasen. And avoid Frank McCourt unless you like men with dentures. I would say maybe Nicholas Sparks, but he'd just cry on you.

That's good stuff, Jamie.

"maybe Nicholas Sparks, but he'd just cry on you."

I almost cried myself. Or wet myself. Either way, that's funny.

I saw Nancy Pickard last week at the library -- she totally rocked!

I just discovered Carl Hiaasen and have been going through his backlist. He's got such a great voice. I'll be checking his interview.
