Cranking up the PR Machine

By Sean Carroll | January 28, 2010 4:09 pm

Like any good author, one of my duties is taking to the airwaves to flog my book. A list of upcoming events can be found at, and of course you can always subscribe to the Facebook page or Twitter feed. But I wanted to highlight some stuff coming up over the next two weeks:

  • Friday January 29, 12:30 p.m. Pacific: I’ll be appearing on NPR’s Science Friday with Ira Flatow. (That’s today/tomorrow, depending on when you’re reading this.) Listen online, or via your favorite public radio station.
  • Saturday January 30, 2:00 p.m. Pacific: From Eternity to Here will be the subject of a Firedoglake Book Salon. I’ll be answering questions online, and our host will be none other than Chad Orzel, who has a book of his own you should check out.
  • Saturday February 6, 10:00 a.m. Pacific: Crank up your avatars, I’m giving a talk in Second Life. (And if you don’t already have an avatar, it’s easy to get one. And you can shop for clothes!) Sponsored by MICA, it will be held at the large amphitheater on StellaNova.
  • Saturday February 6, 5:00 p.m. Pacific: For everyone here in Los Angeles and environs, I’m doing a good old-fashioned book reading/signing at Skylight Books, an awesome independent bookstore in Los Feliz. 5:00 on Saturday night — what better way to kick off the evening’s festivities?

Hope to see you there, virtually or in person!
