HAMBURGER GETS A HELPER BUT I HAVE TO MULTI-TASK EVERYTHING...

...with apologies to Fran Lebowitz for paraphrasing her in the post title. You may remember me referring once or twice over the spring and summer to a new book I was working on. Not the poetry one, that's still in the works - this is the second volume of rock and roll/pop culture trivia. The book has been out for a week or so, but I just got the final cut of the book trailer yesterday. And today the first responses to the press release are coming in, about a dozen before lunch! Whoot! I'm suddenly in a whirlwind of activity sending out review copies, booking radio interviews, and jotting down notes so I won't get nervous on air and sound like a total dork. That's a lot for my baby boomer/dyslexic brain to organize and keep track of (we really should have our own special parking sticker.) Not that I'm complaining, mind you. It's also a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to talking to a bunch of oldies DJs. But I may need to take some time away from blogging to get it all done. I miss everyone when I don't make my rounds, and I'll try to get back here for the next Skywatch. Meanwhile, here's the trailer. It's also posted on my sidebar, along with the one from the first music book and the cat/dog vids.

That was great! I'll have to get hold of the book!

Hmmmmm... I do enjoy scrambled eggs with peanut butter. But mashed potatoes? I don't know about that one.

Way to go, Deb!

My husband worked with a guy that ate peanut butter with EVERYTHING. I am not joking.

And my boss used to like peanut butter and tomato sandwiches.
