Seattle: Not just coffee and Pearl Jam!
Enjoy the batch of photos from my trip last week to the city of Seattle, where I partook in a signing at Third Place Books and an interview that will run on authormagazine.org. First off, I have to give a special thanks to writer/reviewer extraordinaire Jeff Ayers, who was kind enough to show me around the city. Not to mention patient enough to wait in the car while I took pictures of the space needle. And without further ado...
Seeing THE GUILTY at the Detroit Metro Airport during my first layover. A cool way to start the trip.
The view of downtown Seattle outside my hotel room. No match for the brick wall view from my NYC apartment.
Oh, who am I kidding.
The Space Needle. Apparently there's a restaurant at the top. Of course there is.
I got a fever...and the only cure...is MORE SPACE NEEDLE.
According to Jeff, this is the hill where Frasier Crane lives. Yes, I know Frasier is not real.
The Needle, seen rising above the Seattle Science Fiction Museum. The museum was built by Paul Allen. Allen also owns the Seattle Seahawks, the Portland Trail Blazers, and Eddie Vedder.
Third Place Books, the store gracious enough to host my signing and interview. Any time a book store is the tentpole in a fairly large mall it's a good thing.
The placard for my signing. To the right there's a stack of about a bazillion Jodi Picoult books. Though my books fought hard to defend the onslaught, Jodi Picoult fights dirty.
With my buddy Jeff Ayers. If you're a Trekkie, make sure to check out his book VOYAGES OF IMAGINATION: The Star Trek Fiction Companion. If you're not a Trekkie, you stopped reading after "Jeff Ayers."
A pleasant surprise: one of my former editees, Alex Bash, made an appearance. Alex's first book, THE IMBIBLE, comes out in August. It's a flat out hilarious book. Bonus: you might get a hangover just reading it.
A restroom at Minneapolis/St. Paul airport during my second layover. I swear, Larry Craig walked by the second I put my camera away.
