Book Tour, the Seattle Edition

June 24, 2015




This week, I’m off on a pre-publication book tour!  That’s when you go meet and greet with booksellers and reviewer, before the book is out.  


First stop, Seattle!   I had just a few hours free, so I wandered down the five blocks from the hotel, passing (I am not kidding) three hiking outfitter shops, a cactus florist, a store that appeared to sell brightly painted modernist aluminum furniture and also bones, and a coffee shop that doubled as a bespoke messenger bag store.   I nibbled my way through the iconic Pike Place market — nectarines, oysters, nori chips — and witnessed the fish choreography.  


And then I went to cocktail party with Seattle independent booksellers.  It’s a bit weird for me, frankly.   My core skill is sitting quietly and talking to fictional people, which does not automatically translate into being good at cocktail parties.  I feel a bit like Louis the Swan, that night they put him up at the Ritz.  


But it was a great party.  Washington, you are lucky in your indie booksellers -- what a great crowd!  Our hosts at the Needle and Thread -- a former speakeasy, entered through a secret door and a very dark tight stair --  even made a cocktail, fulfilling a writer goal I didn’t even know I had. 




The Princess Greta:  gin, St. Germaine, lemon juice, rhubarb bitters.  (Not, to Greta’s relief, the apple cider that features in the book.)  Fittingly, it is subtle, bittersweet, and hella strong.
