Media Schedule
I've been pretty busy lately, what with Hippo Eats Dwarf appearing in bookstores this week, and I've also been updating portions of the site to get ready for April Fool's Day. That's why posting has been kind of light. Anyway, I'm going to be doing a bunch of radio shows this week, so I've posted my schedule below. If you get one of these stations listen in and see if whomever I'm talking to manages to stump me (DJs seem to love to flip to random pages of my book and grill me on whatever they find there, as I struggle to remember what I wrote a year ago). If you live in San Diego, I'll be doing a book signing at the downtown Borders this Saturday. I'm also doing a bunch of taped radio shows, but I haven't included those in this list since I don't know when they'll be broadcast.

Nothing in Texas either. What are you, some kind of elitist?

Yea! I already listen to the Mike Rosen show already.

Have a good book tour!

By the way, have any of the Traveling Hippo Experiment pictures been posted in the Museum yet?

I was looking for them yesterday, but I didn't find any.

Well, it's not exactly a book tour. More like a radio tour done as I sit in my office at home.

And I'm working on getting a page together for the traveling hippo pics. It should debut soon. Though I don't have too many pictures so far. Just yours and one from France.

My copy arrived yesterday! Having great fun reading it:) Though I must admit, having been a regular here it's a bit like flipping through a family history or something - I've yet to come across a story I didn't know from the website. That's not a complaint, though...

I have my copy, but I want to finish your first book before I start it. Good stuff you got there Alex... can't wait to read the new one and see how close my "review" was to the actual book:

Hey Alex, I tried to listen to your tucson interview but you weren't on. I woke up early and listened to it from 8am-8:45 on friday (you were suppose to be on at 8:20?). Instead they had an interview with a guy from the Mexican board of commerce in Arizona, and an interview with that guy from sopranos, but no Alex. Did you perhaps forget about the time change??

I was going to call in and everything (I was going to tell them they were speaking to an aposter (sp? opposter?) and that I was the real Alex (Alexandra) Boese).
