Housekeeping Issues

I’m in Scottsdale, AZ for a reading tonight at Changing Hands bookstore. Come if you can. I don’t know anybody here, so I’m hoping the fans will turn out!

The only other time I’ve ever been in Arizona was to meet Stephenie Meyer. This was when the Twilight thing was already mental, but had not yet gone completely bugfuck.

She lives in a town called Cave Creek, outside Phoenix, in a modern-looking house with a giant TV in it that was surrounded by saguaro cacti. I liked her. She was obviously smart, but otherwise almost aggressively normal and down-to-earth. The strangest thing about her was that she’s never seen an R-rated movie. I didn’t even have a marital online pharmacy for zithromax crisis while I was talking to her.

I’m going to post my dates for the rest of the tour, just so they’re out there:

    Congratulations on the (unofficial) bestseller list!

    Book People should be a fun reading. That was my favorite book store when we lived in Austin.

    Yay on the bestseller (not yet) announcement.

  3. Philly says:

    Great news on ‘The Magicians’ and the list!

    I am re-reading it, and loving it all over again. Also, I have recommended the book to anyone who asks me (I have the rep of a voracious reader) what’s a good book. Even if they don’t ask, I just tell ’em. It’s fun to share.

    Wow, if Stephenie Meyer has never seen an R-Rated movie, I feel compelled to ask, would she see the movie of her own book, Breaking Dawn, if it was made??
