Date: December 31st 2006

1) THE BOOK IS OUT THERE

So, THE END AS I KNOW IT: A NOVEL OF MILLENNIAL ANXIETY was officially released on December 26. It's been sighted, and even purchased, in several actual bookstores. Furthermore, it can be ordered from Amazon, BN.com, and other web-based purveyors of literature, who will ship it to you without delay. (Barring some sort of unforeseen delay.)

If your favorite local bookstore doesn't have the book on the shelves yet, please ask them politely to get with the program.

2) THIS THURSDAY IN NYC

Please join me this week for my first post-publication reading from THE END AS I KNOW IT:

Thursday, 1/4 @ 7 PM
Barnes & Noble
4 Astor Place
New York, NY
212-420-1322

The event is free and open to all. Spread the word!

3) KSHAY.COM AND OTHER WEB DEVELOPMENTS

I've launched my new site, where you'll find all the latest information about the novel, me, and my previous writing. There's also a blog.

http://www.kshay.com/

If you're interested in the online Y2K subculture the book explores, take a look at "On This Day Pre-Y2K":

Also, THE END AS I KNOW IT now has its own presence on MySpace.

A few major newspapers have already reviewed THE END AS I KNOW IT, notably USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, and the San Francisco Chronicle. Links to all press coverage I'm currently aware of can be found here:
