Friday Update 12/9/11

THE OTHER LIFE is now officially available in paperback, and I'm in full blog tour swing. That means there are lots of chances to win a free copy of the book. But before I post those links, some exciting news. Yesterday, to my surprise, NPR included the book in their list of The Week's Outstanding Softcover Releases. Very cool!
