In the News
Tick, tick, tick...two days until our book release date! We are definitely gearing up around here - with our main missions being to: 1) get the word out to all of the parents who want equal partnerships and balanced lives that there is now a practical handbook to help them achieve these dreams, and 2) have a lot of fun along the way.
The fun has already begun, I'm happy to share. We were guests on The Jefferson Exchange, an NPR show originating from Oregon, last Wednesday (you can listen by downloading the podcast here; warning - it does take a few minutes to load). And we were featured in two different articles on the terrific new website, Shareable.net:
- The Top 10 Shareable Events of 2009 (equally shared parenting is #8)
- Eight Books We're Looking Forward to in 2010 (we're #4)
Also, in today's Boston Globe, you can find us in this sweet article about how to handle missing your child's big milestones when they happen on your partner's watch instead of when you are home to see them firsthand.
We hope you plan to join us for the fun of the next few weeks and months. We will post our book events on our new Events and Appearances page as we schedule them. And if you are in the Boston area, we hope you're free to join us for the official book launch party next Sunday (1/10) at 2pm at the Watertown Public Library - see you there!
Are we to expect a book tour?!
In this crazy time for publishing, they say the classic book tour is no longer. At least if you're not Sarah Palin. But we'll love to pack up and tour the country - seeing our friends along the way (and meeting a whole bunch of great ESP couples we interviewed for the book). So we are open to the possibility for sure.
I also borrow a lot of books from the library, including Marilynn Karp’s “In Flagrant Collecto,” which I was perusing as I encountered the DUKES OF HAZZARD episode. When we moved into a new house half the size of our old one a year ago, it became painfully evident that I tend to actively accumulate things, especially books. But when it comes to collecting, I am to Ms. Karp as Birch Hill is to Denali. Karp’s book is a large, coffee-table style tome packed with photographs of a few of her family’s unbelievably DUKES OF HAZZARD DVD collections. It has 22 chapters, each featuring a bizarre array of collecting categories. The “Taste Changed” chapter, for instance, includes “Naughty Nellies” (suggestive bottle openers), “Linoleum Sample Books,” “Hairdresser Magazines,” and, what’s this? “DUKES OF HAZZARD DVD COLLECTION”? A lot of people collect those, but not Karp’s collections of dried slivers of used bath soap, billiard table pockets, police mug shots or mosquito coils.
