In Truth or Consequences, NM (2-17-08)


The next to last stop on my booktour was in Truth or Consequences, NM. This town has a very interesting connection to the power of the electronic media, as its name was changed in a competition back in the 1950's to be the first to host the popular radio show of that name.
Here I am with Jonathan Phillips (founder NYC Gnostics and editor of souldish.com) at the Black Cat Bookstore, photo by Mikey Sklar.
Soon after the talk, it was time for a long hot soak!

How was Black Cat? Im doing a signing there soon, maybe making me only the second author to travel to T or C. I cn't imagine why it would be on your tour, but it's on mine because my book is set in New Mexico and actually mentiones T or C, and I kind of like the quirky little place.

Great mix of old hippies, western "leave me alone" types and younger, very plugged in, former techies. Wendy Tremayne (wendy@gaiatreehouse.com) is a good contact there.
