If it's Wednesday, I must be in Phoenix! (Another indication -- there's a cactus outside of my window. You just don't get that in Philadelphia. Mummers, yes. Cacti, not so much).

We're entering the home stretch of the tour, and of the latest draft of IN HER SHOES, which has been keeping me busy as I bounce around the West Coast, laptop and overstuffed suitcase in tow. Tonight I'm at Changing Hands. Tomorrow I'm in Houston. Friday I'm at the Barnes & Noble in Bethesda. And then on Saturday, after two weeks on the road, I get to go home. Yay home!

So now I'm going to get back to work (the end is near. There's light at the end of the tunnel. Or maybe just carpal tunnel syndrom at the end of the tunnel. Whichever). With any luck I'll be done in time to hang out by the pool for a bit and read more Kavalier & Clay (I'm on a Michael Chabon binge....finished Wonder Boys last week. It was even better than the movie!)

More later, perhaps. Especially if I get home in time to see The Amazing Race.
