Everybody naps, but nobody naps like I nap. I train for them like Michael Phelps trains for his gold medal swims. I take marathon naps. This weekend, sad to say, I’m taking my last good naps for a long time. I’ll have my first media interview about my new book, The Colorful Characters of St. Louis, on Wednesday. The books arrive at the warehouse on Thursday. From then until after Christmas, everything’s a blur.
The big event early on will be my fun-filled release party, from 2-5 p.m. Sunday, October 2 at the Royale, 3132 South Kingshighway. Or did I mention that already? It’ll be a great chance to buy a book and have me sign it, greet some Colorful Characters I wrote about and get some great food and drink from Colorful Character and Royale owner Steven Fitzpatrick Smith. If you miss it, check the page on my website about where I’ll be. But first, get in your nap time.
