You know, in the old days "social networking" was done at lunch. Then again, in the old days you could drink three martinis at lunch too.
World's changin' I reckon.
I signed up on Facebook to drum up business for "Overburden: Modern Life on the Iron Range," an original collection of humorous, historical and cultural essays about northern Minnesota's unique blue collar utopia. It's the debut release of an exciting new company called Red Step Press. The first reading is tonight at Barnes and Noble in Duluth at 6:30 p.m. So far, I've already sold two books to Facebook friends. I even signed and hand delivered them to the doorstep. I probably won't do this for you but you could always try asking. My main goal is to not get shot and chopped up in someone's basement. That should be everyone's main goal.
