We had the wonderful opportunity to do a Lucky Man reading at the most excellent independent bookstore Read Between the Lynes in Woodstock, Illinois yesterday and we are happy to report that while the turnout wasn't huge (1) the bookstore rocks, and we very much appreciate the invitation - thank you Josh, (2) we definitely sold at least one book, which was very nice - thank you Camden, (3) we left three autographed copies behind for your buying pleasure, (4) we were joined by the very bearded Nick Ostdick and his posse and Nick did that magical Nick thing he does, and (5) we shot a new video that we are calling "A day in the life with Lucky Man author Ben Tanzer," which follows TBWCYL, Inc. spokesperson and Lucky Man author Ben Tanzer during his journey to Woodstock and home again.
A lot of people ask Ben what it is like being the author of an obscure novel that few of read, and so in this travelogue you will have previously unprecedented access to Ben's world as you see what Ben saw and hear what he was thinking throughout the day. Is it magical? You be the judge. Will it change your life? We think so. Check it out on YouTube and please let us know what you think.
