Pretty astute cover critics. Check this out:
18 days until "The Hearts of Men" releases in the US! Have you pre-ordered your copies, yet? Will I see you at an independent bookstore or library in the next several months (check my website for tour dates)? Perhaps I'll be coming to your town, fully clothed in my vintage Scout regalia! Amazingly, my Scout shirt still fits. Snugly.
