Bookin’, with hometown bookstore Quail Ridge

Bookin'

In the middle of a pandemic with the world seemingly falling apart is a rather strange, difficult and dispiriting time to be putting a book out into the world. But life goes on and so does relentless self-promotion (’cause God helps those who hype themselves). So on we go: Here is a very nice “Step It Up and Go” interview on the podcast Bookin,’ conducted by Quail Ridge Books general manager Jason Jefferies, touching on everything from Charlie Poole to “American Idol.” And we handled the logistics the way one does nowadays with pandemic protocols — via a remote interview over the phone, even though Jason and I actually live right around the corner from each other.

Speaking of remote events and such, I will be doing an online reading/discussion via Quail Ridge Books the evening of Oct. 19 (which is the book’s “official” publication date). Joining me will be my old friend, fellow Piedmont Laureate emeritus and noted author Scott Huler. And the silver lining to this online world of virtuality is that you can attend from anywhere, not just here in Raleigh. We’ll kick things off at 7 p.m. Eastern Time on Oct. 19. Y’all come.
