J.A. KONRATH'S BIG ADVENTURE

I want to be mystery novelist J.A. Konrath when I grow up. As reported in Publishers Weekly and also reported in Wired Magazine, Mr. Konrath is visiting 500 bookstores in 60 days, give or take.

Today, he stopped in at nearly every bookstore in Nashville. Following his hit-and-run at Davis-Kidd (and the monthly meeting of the Middle Tennessee chapter of Sisters in Crime), my lovely wife and I had the pleasure of his company (and of authors Tasha Alexander and J.T. Ellison) for dinner.

Godspeed and the wind at your sails, Mr. Konrath -- Godspeed and the wind at your sails!*

*(Actually, I have no idea what I'm talking about, either. But the man is hitting 500 bookstores in 60 days. It's hard not to feel dramatic about it.)
