Day-by-Day on a Book Tour

Author Lisa Lutz describes her recent book tour here. It's not all glamor and glitz. In fact, it sounds downright depressing at times:
Day 7: In the evening I'm interviewed by a local celebrity reporter at an event that sold tickets for $15 a head. I heard they sold six tickets in advance, but only two people show up. My friends had big plans to heckle me, but couldn't work up the nerve in a crowd that small. I wouldn't pay $15 to see me either, so I wasn't offended by the paltry crowd.
Ms. Lutz's stop in Houston turns out a bit better: "There are people here!"
