HarperCollins has an amazing team and they paired me with an incredible publicity and marketing duo - namely Dianna Garcia and Alaina Waagner. That said, when you’re a first time author you should expect to hoof it around town and introduce yourself and talk up your book as much as you can. Because nobody knows who you are. - Nathan W.

Congrats alainawaagner!

"Bradbury (in 1975) didn’t drive a car. But he was often out and about in L.A., browsing bookstores’ stacks, his bicycle propped just outside."

Proposed alternate captions:
"Ray Bradbury’s hatred of automobiles was only eclipsed by his hatred of pants.”
"Ray Bradbury, pictured doing him."
"Ray Bradbury, about to sneeze, clenches his mighty quads."
"Ray Bradbury, raising the bar on embarrassing one’s daughter in front of her prom date."
"Ray Bradbury, the human magnetic dress-up playset."

Just say no to authors in shorts.

You had college professors, nonprofit staff, people in publishing, teachers. They were middle class and very highly educated and went to Brooklyn because of the kind of creativity and arts scene and people like them, frankly.
