Peephole In My Skull

Page 3 Girl

ny_daily_news_logo

So pick up a copy of the NY Daily News today and open the cover. There on page friggin’ THREE, you’ll find a HUGE picture of my ugly mug! The article is about how I wrote The Warded Man on my iPaq smartphone while riding the Subway. You can see the full article here, but the picture in the paper is MUCH bigger and better!

The News called on Monday and interviewed me for an hour, and then sent a photographer out yesterday to ride the subway with me and snap some pictures. I’ll see if I can get permission to put some of the unused shots on the blog at some point. We got a variety of good ones.

Still, I didn’t expect it to make page three of he paper. I have my top on, so it’s not a classic page 3 shot, but it’ll do. It’ll do.

I’m also on the “in the papers” section of this morning’ news loop on NY1!

  3. Promise us that the first time some stranger recognizes you on the street, you’ll post it here.

  4. If you got the reference, Bronwen, you’re in a glass house and shouldn’t throw stones.

  15. Just a question – Are you still writing on your smartphone and which device are you using now?

  17. Surur,

    Yes, I still write regularly on the smartphone. Wrote in the park today on the first summery day of the year, while simultaneously burning the crap out of my vampire-pale skin. Knocked out 605 words.

    I am still using an HP iPaq, though I upgraded last fall from the 6515 to the sleeker and more powerful 900 series, which is like the grandson of the 6500 series. I miss the old keyboard and larger screen size of the older model, but the new one has more processing power, so it is less likely to freeze when opening large files or running multiple applications.
