Diary of a Release Week: Tuesday/Wednesday

Greetings, dear Oregonians and Internet savvy people everywhere. I'm sitting here at the end of the long, strange, wonderful launch day for Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter. A day that began with me chatting up none other than Doris Kearns Goodwin (one of my literary heroes — we were both guests on NPR's "On Point"), continued with me getting to meet James Cameron (one of my cinematic heroes — I'll explain in a minute), reached its crescendo with the announcement that Tim Burton (another one of my cinematic heroes) was producing the AL:VH movie, and ended with a reading and signing at the Sunset Strip's own Book Soup. All in all, not a bad Tuesday.

Diary of a Release Week: Monday

G'morning from the cockpit, ladies and gentlemen. My name's Seth Grahame-Smith, and I'll be your guest blogger here at Powell's for the week. Our blogging time looks to be about, oh, five days. We expect a smooth read, but please keep those seatbelts fastened in the event we encounter any unexpected double-negatives or clunky transitive verbs.

After 10 incredible months of surfing the unexpected rocket that was Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, we're one day away from the release of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. This week I'll be sharing my experiences of the book's first week on shelves from here in Los Angeles (my home base). The truth is, I have no clue what I'll be posting over the next four days. Random musings, reports from book events, a glimpse of my TV day job — perhaps cell phone pics of me eating.
