Time zones suck!

I was very excited earlier this week when I received an email announcing that there is going to be a web chat with Tana French early next week. At least I was excited until I realised that 1.30pm Tuesday ET equates to 3.30 am Wednesday here! Maybe if it wasn't a school night I might consider staying up for it, but unless I chuck a sickie, I really do have to go to work on Wednesday.

In the mean time I am waiting very impatiently for Faithful Place to come in at the library. I am number one on the list so I will get it pretty quickly once it finally arrives from the supplier.

In the meantime, if you are interested in participating, then here are the details:

Penguin Books invites you and your readers to join the celebrated mystery author, Tana French, for a chat at the Penguin Water Cooler on Tuesday, July 20th at 1:30 PM ET, hosted here on the Penguin USA website!
If someone does end up participating in the chat I would love to hear what happens at the chat.


  1. I just finished IN THE WOODS last week and LOVED it. I hope to be able to participate in this. I don't have the time zone issues, but I have the must-work-for-a-living issues. LOL! I'm so glad I found Tana French!

  2. Yes, time zones do indeed suck, LOL. I just started this book, though, so I don't want to hear her talk about it and spoil anything!

  3. Literate Housewife, I liked In the Woods a lot, but I really loved The Likeness. So good.

    Michele, that is always a debate isn't it. The coolness of being able to listen to a favourite author talk versus not wanting to inadvertently spoil!

  4. Marg,
    I can't remember if I contacted you about this, but I have an award for you over at my blog! You can find it under the label, "The Versatile Blogger!"

  5. Are they recording it? If so you may be able to download that later one.

  7. I agree that time zones suck. A lot of the chats that are US based are at times that I couldn't possible be online.

  8. I have heard such good things about French's books and I am eager to try them. I do have a copy of the first in this series on my shelf, and I can't wait to get to it. I am also sorry that you couldn't join the chat :(
