I neglected to post this here last week, but I thought you might like to see the Golden Apple that arrived a few days ago — my prize for winning the Iowa Teen Reader Award. Iowa teen readers voted my novel The Last Thing I Remember their favorite. I put the apple on my mantlepiece between my new novel Crazy Dangerous and the new issue of City Journal which contains an article I wrote about my favorite joke. Hit the links and buy everything. I mean it. Do it right now.
One kind of interesting thing about this golden apple is if you look closely you’ll see it actually contains a reflection of me. I thought that was cool. My wife says the reflection is not there all the time, but it’s been there every time I looked so I think she is just messing with my head hoping to drive me insane so that I’ll let her use the remote.
