A month away from WONDER TRAIL releasePosted: May 17, 2016 Filed under: Wonder Trail Leave a comment
On June 14, my new book The Wonder Trail: True Stories From Los Angeles To The End Of The World, comes out.
You can pre-order the book here on Amazon or here from your favorite independent bookstore(s?!). Independent bookstores were very supportive of my last book, I owe them bigtime. Also who doesn’t love an independent bookstore?
Possible I’m beating the drum on my own book a little too hard. Book promotion can feel very weird. By the time the book comes out, you’re exhausted of it, it’s the last thing you want to talk about.
But there’s probably something this lesson about marketing told by David Gergen in this 1993 Michael Kelly profile:
Anyway, I hope the book is cool and fun and entertaining, a perfect summer read that proves surprisingly informative.
It’s not too early to mark Monday, June 20 on your calendar, I’ll be at Book Soup in Los Angeles.
Today I sent to Helytimes Superfan subscribers some excerpts of the book, about Nicaragua. If you’d like to receive it too, just send me an email to helphely at gmail.com
These are all pictures of Nicaragua I took on my travels, here is the Ojo de Agua on the island of Ometeppe:
