I can’t sleepblog and some Lost Days news

In a group, club, organization? Get a 25% discount on Lost Days!

Whoa!  I missed posting yesterday!  My excuse?  I fell asleep on my recliner.  I’m not joking.  I fell into a deep, unexpected sleep.  It was so deep Mia freaked me out a bit when she woke me.  I didn’t know where I was, and I only had a vague idea who I was.  I was in no mood or shape to sit down at the computer and blog.

Why was I so tired?  I’ve been getting up at four in the morning in an effort to be more productive.  The trouble is I’m still going to bed at my normal time.  It finally caught up to me.  I’ll adjust soon enough, but until then I ask for your patience. 

Top R.W. Ridley news for today: I’ve worked out a 25% discount for groups who want to buy and read Lost Days.  What does that mean?  If you’re in a book club or you work for a school or part of some cryptozoology group, you can contact me at lostdays@rwridley.com, and I will send you a link to a website, and a discount code so you can get 25% off Lost Days.  All I ask is that you share the discount with everyone in your group.  In fact if you can get 10 people to buy it, we can arrange for a phone conference, and I’ll be happy to answer any of your questions about the book or writing or bigfoot or all of the above.  

Now, please forgive me. My comfy recliner is calling my name…zzzzzzzzzzzz.

Stephen King on Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me

If you don’t listen to NPR, you’re missing some great programming. They have a lot of fun quiz and talk shows on the weekends especially. One of my favorites is Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me hosted by Peter Sagal. It’s a quiz show where real stories from the week’s news are mixed in with fake stories and an odd collection of “kind of celebrities” try to pick out the real stories. There’s more to it than that, but that’s basically the gist. Stephen King was recently a quest on the show. This is NPR describes his interview:

Author Stephen King plays a game called, “You’re the Warmest, Fluffiest, Most Unthreatening Friend Ever.” Three questions about nice things to ask the man who has scared us out of our wits for decades.

I think it’s one of King’s best appearances. Here’s the clip: Stephen King on Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me.
