163: #BookTourReality

Jun 14, 05:05 AM
Mary Laura Philpott tells all. It's glorious. It's embarrassing. Nobody told you you'd be sitting on a barstool in front of a crowd in a short skirt.

Mary Laura Philpott is the author of I Miss You When I Blink, a book with the most awesome subtitle ever: Essays. That's it. Here's a little something she wrote on subtitles and why we love to hate them, from LitHub. 

We've been following her book launch (check back to Episode 150, #NeverReady) and now, her triumphant tour. Or maybe not so much and certainly not all the time. 

Links to some of the fantastic Indies who hosted Mary Laura:

Word Bookstore in Brooklyn and New Jersey

Malaprops Bookstore in Asheville, NC

The Snail on the Wall Huntsville, AL

Politics and Prose Washington, DC

#AmReading

City of Girls, Elizabeth Gilbert

#FaveIndieBookstore

And finally, no interview with Mary Laura would be complete without a shoutout to her favorite Indie--and her beloved employer--Parnassus Books in Nashville.
