Engineer Jaime and I finished recording The Jesus Cow audiobook today. Had to kill the heat to the iso-booth for silence’s sake. It was nine below outside, so I was grateful for my cap and Green Bay Packers hoodie. Also hot lime-and-honey tea handmade and delivered by Francis Farewell Starlite.
Halloween costume: Ford Falcon from “The Scavengers”
Among the many things I never expected in this life: Young readers* turning a character from one of my books into a Halloween costume. There are honors, and then there are honors–this is a Top Fiver. To those who took the time and made the effort (and to the parents who sent the photos and messages)…thank you.
*And no, not my own children, although perhaps I shoulda thought of that. My status in the world of children’s literature was pretty much summed up by my youngest dressing up as a Harry Potter character. Nice try, Dad.
Man, I’ve been getting a LOT of mail. A big Ford Falcon thank you to all the students and teachers who sent me notes and drawings and homemade pop-up books (yes!) after I visited them on The Scavengers tour.
