Normally, when I have a book published, I visit libraries, book clubs, and festivals to talk about my book and read excerpts from it. More importantly, I get to interact with readers who ask plenty of questions and offer lots of interesting insights. Since COVID-19 has made such personal interactions a public health nightmare, I'm adapting. Below you'll find audio recordings of what I would have said to introduce my book if I'd had the chance to do it in person and excerpts of what I would have read so that readers can get a brief glimpse into the story being told.
