The week since launch has been a week of highs—interviews, new readers, your words and reblogs—and lows: pre-sale shipping delays,  Amazon’s out-of-stock status, ongoing Nook issues.
Today finds me in Texas with one of my lifelong besties doing a walk-through at Lucky Dog Books.
It’s why I’m planning, not dreading, the four-year anniversary of Alberto’s death tomorrow.
On March 15th, 2013, his ashes will be in the same bag as the book dedicated to him.
I will spread them in the same city where my first in-store reading will happen on Saturday.
And for the first March 15th in four years, it will be a day hemmed in more sweet than bitter.
