So I found out yesterday that Cleopatra’s Moon made Entertainment Weekly e-zine’s “Must Read” list for the week of August 22nd.
What a surprise! Beyond exciting! Here’s the link: http://www.ew.com/ew/gallery/0,,20310286_20521465,00.html#21043406 There Selene is, sandwiched between the Coen brothers’ Blue Ray collection and actor Paul Giamatti! Amazing.

Learning about this was the perfect finish to a wonderful literary fest weekend. The Decatur Book Festival just gets better and better every year. I pretty much camped out at the teen stage, which just happened to be in the air-conditioned library auditorium.
|COAS and DQC!|
|DQC took one look and said, “Mine!”|
|Yeah, I have no idea either…|
My friend Ashley Parsons pointed out that I was on the “Emory Track” for my presentation on Sunday. Sadly, no one knew what that meant. Was it for college students? Employees of Emory? No clue. But that didn’t stop me from having my picture taken next to the poster in the lamest pose possible.
The Decatur Book Festival really is an amazing event. Every year I think there’s no way they can top it, and every year they do. Next year, plan on joining us!
