I guess my pre-publication press push has officially begun: I'll be on KUOW today around 1:30 (Seattle-time) talking about offbeat brides navigating their ways through the Wedding Industrial Complex. You can listen online via their website if you want.
The amazing Michelle Goodman wrote an article for this month's Bust that includes an interview with me and a mention of Offbeat Bride. It's on newstands next week. (And thanks to Jill for sending me a scan of the article so I could read it — it's great!)
… now all I have to do is finish writing the book! I'm a little over one third of the way through.
After 18 months of incubation and hard work on various permutations of proposals, I just sold my first book! Seal Press will release my trade paperback debut, a memoir/handbook chimera with a working title of And the Bride Wore A Hula Hoop, in January 2007. Hurrah!
