91 Book Launching with Carrie Patel

 

I’m talking with Carrie Patel, author of the Buried Life, about book launches.

I’ve talked with Carrie before about her steampunk-ish, noir-ish, fantasy-ish, dystopian-ish, book-ish underground thing, but that was when we thought it was coming out in summer 2014. Now, the Buried Life is finally ready for launch (you can buy it now, in fact!).
