First off, let’s get the tough news out the way: Borders Roseville #130 is no more. We closed the doors yesterday for the last time and I am no longer an employee for this company that’s only going to be around for another couple of weeks. You can read all about my thoughts (as well as various author’s) in my most recent BookBanter Column, “Thank You Borders.”
And that’s that, until I find a new job, I have lots of time on my hands, which means lots of reading and writing, and book reviewing, and more interviews and updates on BookBanter.
Tomorrow I’ll be putting up the next interview, with Cameron Stracher, author of the young adult dystopian novel, The Water Wars. And in the pipeline are interviews with Alan Jacobson, author of Inmate 1577; John Barnes, author of Directive 51; Ben Loory, author of Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Day; and Robert Charles Wilson, author of Vortex. And that will all be coming up over the next couple of months.
In the meantime, the latest BookBanter Boon giveaway ends tonight at 11:59PM PST, so if you’re interested in entering to win a couple of free books, be sure to leave a comment on that post linked above.
