Monday was Day 1 of the book tour for DEAD CONNECTION. I was able to check off the "trains" part of my planes, trains, and automobiles trip, with my first ever ride on Amtrak. Leg room, no seatbelts, and a restaurant: I am now a train convert.
We had a great group of friendly people at Kate's in Boston. I tried to get a burger afterward at the famous Mr. Bartley's Burger Cottage, but it was too crowded. I settled for dinner at the bar of the restaurant next door, where I shared stories with a 75 year old man who will certainly make it some day into one of the books in fictionalized form.
And on this morning of Day 2, I was good and set the alarm so I can go to the gym before flying to Minneapolis. We'll see how long that lasts.
