Last one for a while, dear readers. Promise. It’s nice to be done the “assigned book” sprint. I still have assigned books left to read, but at least I can blog about them after I’ve read the last page.

But I have to give you something. In the comments section of the last review post (the one where I shared my new headshot), Abra of Abra Goes asked me what the back of my head looked like — a joke playing off my posts about ‘back of the head’ covers. Well, Abra, here you go:

That’s a picture of me signing copies of my book at the Borders in Eatontown, NJ. You’ll have to excuse the messy ponytail — I’d been on the beach for most of the day. The ponytail on the back of The Department of Lost & Found, which was that first got me tuned into the back of the head trend, is much neater.

Speaking of that book, it came out in paperback today. For the author’s post on the topic, click here. I chose the book as one of my summer beach picks for 2007, and my review’s even blurbed on the back. So it’s safe to assume I recommend it!

Allison Winn Scotch, the author, also interviewed me about travel writing and book reviewing. You can check out that Q&A here.
