I know I'm late to the party, but I want to reiterate how great the cover looks.

It's a Lumberthumb! Was that early shipping from Amazon, or a local store?

I have just now at this exact moment become terrified that you guys won't like it.

Also, I have a relatively large podcast interview Monday. And so far in the following weeks, a 1-hour major market NPR segment, a rural Virginia morning show, and an interview of as-yet-unknown length with the largest English-speaking radio station in Spain (and who knows how big that is.) More supposedly to come.

Did I say terrified? Hmm.

Are these all remotes?

You have so much more skill here than the average remote-touring author would start with! You already know how to speak well and command a microphone and have a great mic voice. You know how to present what you want to say. You're already tons interesting.

You got dis

(I don't though... I paid MORE for digital delivery and says here it won't happen until Apr 5)

They're all over the phone. The one in Spain may be over Skype, not involving my face but just because apparently the international lines are more reliable that way. Which is good, because all of them are either at 6 or 7 in the morning my time, and my face will not be presentable. I'm told that almost all radio guests, even the ones who sound like they're in the studio, are actually over digital phone lines these days.

Was I supposed to read it too? I like it. It's a nice looking book. Why did you cover part of your face on the tiny little picture of the author on the back cover?

Do we know the story behind the scar? And which fob is Andrew?

Andrew is Mr. Clod. The scar story is a chapter in the book.

It's funny, that picture of me is very polarizing... My mom and dad both hate it (which has got to be the first thing they've agreed on in thirty years.) My friends who do a lot of social media all love it. My theory is that because it's weirdly candid and somewhat awkward, that makes it more genuine-seeming to the crowd that does nothing but look at posed pictures of each other all day long. The cropping they did also makes my hand look bigger, in the full picture it wasn't so intrusive.
