I’ve had some computer issues (not yet resolved, but the situation is workable for now), so I haven’t been posting for the last two weeks or so. In all the computer drama I almost lost the audio file of an interview I did with Thomas Armstrong, but now I can settle down to work on it and produce some posts on the great conversation we had on his novel in particular, Caribbean literature in general, and more!
It’s been nice to see more positive mentions of Redemption in Indigo on the internet. This review by Laura Miller at Salon was a particularly good Christmas present!
We’re into the second print run, and there’s an audiobook from Recorded Books on the horizon. Many online bookstores seem to be temporarily out of stock, but don’t worry because Small Beer Press has stock from the second print run as well as some signed copies of the first edition. The only other place you can get signed first edition copies is at Days Bookstore in Barbados, so if you happen to be in the area, go to Speedbird House in Bridgetown next to the new General Public Library and pick up a copy.
I had a great Christmas, mostly involving food, family and friends, which is precisely how I like it. I hope yours was as excellent, and may 2011 be marvellous beyond all expectation!
