1) HOW DO I UNSUBSCRIBE FROM THIS THING, AGAIN?

2) THANK YOU!

Many thanks to all of you who attended the reading at Pete's Candy Store in November. I appreciated your coming, and Pete's appreciated your appetite for panini. I had a great time--hope you did, too!

3) BOOK RELEASE AND UPCOMING APPEARANCES

The official release date of THE END AS I KNOW IT: A NOVEL OF MILLENNIAL ANXIETY is 12/26. Whether it will actually start showing up in stores a couple of days before or after that, I don't know. Keep an eye out! (Not to be confused with "You'll put an eye out!")

Here are the official readings and signings scheduled thus far:

Thursday, 1/4 @ 7 PM
Barnes & Noble
4 Astor Place, NYC

Sunday, 2/11 @ 7 PM
KGB Bar
85 East 4th Street, NYC
With Yael Goldstein

Wednesday, 2/28 @ 7 PM
Debut Fiction Night
Makor/Steinhardt Center of the 92nd Street Y
35 West 67th Street, NYC

Monday, 3/11 @ 7 PM
Brookline Booksmith
279 Harvard Street, Brookline, MA

More information about each of these events will follow as it approaches, and others will be added.

Meanwhile, next week, on Wednesday, 12/20, I will be appearing in this month's edition of TWO FOR THE SHOW, a comedy/variety show hosted by my friends Maura Madden and Rufus Tureen. This will involve a brief reading from the book and possibly some additional buffoonery. Other funny people will perform as well. The show is at Mo Pitkin's House of Satisfaction in NYC, at 7:30.

4) ORDERING THE BOOK

I haven't yet been actively encouraging those who are inclined to purchase THE END AS I KNOW IT to pre-order it, partly because of some half-baked notion that the book's "Amazon ranking" will fare better if a bunch of orders come in right around the publication date. But 12/26 is almost upon us, so if you're inclined to order the book from Amazon.com, here's the URL:

http://www.amazon.com/dp/0385518218

Links for ordering from other sites will soon be posted on kshay.com.

5) NEW THINGS ON THE WEB

A) By the end of next week, look for the new kshay.com site to be launched. It will feature a blog and lots of information about me and the novel.

B) You will find THE END AS I KNOW IT featured on the homepage of Doubleday's online catalogue:

C) Doubleday has also posted an excerpt from the first chapter of the book. You can read it here:
