I survived! Thanks to everyone for your kind words of support. It was actually a lot of fun, and I did sell some books. Mostly, though, it was a chance to talk with the booksellers—who were remarkably kind and supportive—and to have some nice conversations with people who were interested in writing. Plus, I have pictures!
EDIT: Forgot to mention that there is a new interview with me up at Revision 14. You can read both parts here and here.
