“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Bad author!
Wednesday, February 18, 2009

I've blogged before that I have two jobs: Writer and author. The former is the solitary, brooding job, month upon month of hovering over a keyboard, creating. Then there's author mode. This is what you become AFTER you get the book written: speaking engagements, book tours, opinion pieces in newspapers ... anything you can do to get the Word of Ad out there to help sell books.

Here is something you should NOT do as an author: Travel through Ohio for four days with your wife and daughter on a college-hunting trip when YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE MODERATING A BOOK DISCUSSION WITH 30 READERS AT A LIBRARY ON FORT MYERS BEACH!

All I can say is this: I'm sorry and embarrassed. And I will wear my hair shirt for the next 30 days as punishment.

Ad, you mean you missed the session with the Temple-Licking-Love-Biting League of Fort Myers Beach? The crowd missed you, I'm sure, and are likely salivating at this moment. But I'm thinking your calendar faux-pas saved your skin.

(For those not in the know, read Ad's previous blogs about his face being bitten and licked by stranger-than-fans.)
