Local Publicity, Plus Bonus Picture of Author in His Home Office

Scott William Carter   January 28, 2011  

The local newspaper, The Statesman Journal, ran an article on three of the local finalists for the Oregon Book Awards.  If you’ve ever wondered what I look like in my home office, well, there you go.  I know, I know, try to contain your excitement.  A picture of me typing would have been even more riveting. Though I have to say, usually I’m not quite that smiley.  I just smiled because the photographer promised me a cookie.

And I have to add that the picture was taken back in August when the newspaper ran a feature on me and The Last Great Getaway of the Water Balloon Boys, just in case you were getting the impression that I’m some sort of attention-starved, publicity-seeking, reality star wannabe.  Really, I’m not.  I promise.

*Yes, those are real glow-in-the-dark alien key chains hanging on my bookshelves.  Doesn’t every writer have them?
