Bradford Says Hi


Athena and Krissy say thanks to all of you who took such good care of me on the road, but they'll be happy to take it from here. And I agree!

Which is to say I've made it home, safe and sound. And it's nice to be back.

Mary Robinette Kowal | May 10, 2007 06:28 PM

Happy homeday! I'm glad to see the good versus evil unicorns are getting a workout.

Joe Rybicki | May 10, 2007 06:33 PM

Well done, sir. And happy birthday to you.

And what is the news of the Beauteous Ghlaghghee?

Happy birthday! By the way, I just finished TLC. Bravo, sir!

Heather Doan | May 10, 2007 08:09 PM

YEA!!!!! Your home!!!

Kate | May 10, 2007 08:16 PM

Isn't it weird when you're away from your kids for awhile and they look like they've grown a foot without you there?

Glad you made it home safe.

I'm willing to believe this is the best crowd of the tour, huh?

Chang, for rizzle. | May 10, 2007 10:20 PM

Happy Birthday, John! Again. Glad you got home safe and sound.

My wife's read OMW and TGB. Loved both. I've held TSG and TLC from her until she finishes my novel. Which she's reading almost as fast as yours.

So, what was the final toll on luggage and packing and all that? Too much? Not enough?

Jay Lake | May 11, 2007 12:54 AM

Welcome home, big guy.

Jeff | May 11, 2007 06:36 AM

Glad to see you made it home safe. Thanks for sharing some time with us.

Can you (will you, please) make an analysis of the cost-benefit of touring?

John Scalzi | May 11, 2007 02:36 PM

TCO: I talk about it a bit here. Suffice to say there's little direct economic benefit unless you're already a huge bestseller, but the second order benefits of the exposure will hopefully work out in the long run.

TCO | May 11, 2007 03:12 PM

Thanks. I guess I'm wondering, not from the point of view of the marketing spend of the publisher. But from your point of view of work time lost versus readers gained. Also the intangible benefits and decrements.

John Scalzi | May 11, 2007 03:15 PM

Ah. By and large I think it was very positive, actually; I'll do a larger analysis why as a front page post sometime in the reasonably near future.

TCO | May 11, 2007 03:20 PM

Thanks, striker.
