I wish I could say that I’d spent another day without worms or anything worm-related, that I’d taken a healthy little break from all things worm-related so I could get some perspective before the next leg of the book tour, but no. This morning I started to get nervous about my Seattle events—would there be enough media coverage? Should I have reached out to garden groups more? Would it matter that the time for the event at Elliot Bay had already changed twice and all the postcards I sent out had the wrong time? In short, would anyone show up?
Sigh. Yes, I’m sure it will be fine, and my very kind and patient publicist assured me that it would be fine, but I still spent the morning looking up e-mail addresses online—public gardens, nurseries, recycling groups, anyone who might be interested—and sent them e-mails with a list of events.
If you’re in Seattle, please come see me at Elliot Bay next Saturday, May 8, at 2 p.m. It’ll make me feel so much better.And check out my interview on To the Best of Our Knowledge. It’s about midway through the hour if you want to skip ahead, but I won’t mind if you listen to the other guys, too.
