I know, this hasn’t been much of a blog lately. Well, it was last week, because Barbara was on the case. But now she’s on vacation and I haven’t been delivering the goods. My excuse No. 1 is that preparing to launch a book publicity campaign turns out to be incredibly time-consuming work. This probably isn’t a very convincing excuse, given that the publicity hasn’t started happening yet. (Although I did this video for publishing blog GalleyCat; that ‘s something, right?) Excuse No. 2 is that I’ve been doing a fair amount of actual reporting for my magazine columns lately. But I should be able to blog while doing that.
Anyway, I’m not even going to try excuse No. 3—that the Champions League final is on TV right now. The posts will begin flowing again this afternoon. Wait, wait: Goal Barcelona!!!!
