It was one year ago today that The Music of the Lord of the Rings Films saw it's debut upon the world's stage in a London music shop. It's hard to believe it's been a year. It's also hard to believe it's only been a year. The book, in various versions, has been my constant companion for so long, it just feels like something that's always been around. In my mind, at least, it has a rather timeless quality.
Or that could just be some lingering jet-lag. Speaking of which ...
I'm hitting the road again. Tomorrow evening I'm off to LA for a two-day jaunt. I'll be signing books at the Orange, CA Barnes and Noble on Thursday night at 7:00, and I'll be lecturing at Fullerton College the next morning 10:00 a.m. In between, I'll be speaking with ... essentially every media outlet in the greater Los Angeles area. It's like being on a reality series that's divided up in 4 minute chunks between 10 different stations. For a few hours, at least, I'll be hard to miss!
I'll leave LA behind on Saturday, then I'm off to Kentucky to prepare for Of Rings and Myths, which will premiere on Saturday, October 8 at 8:00 p.m.
From Kentucky, I'll head back out west for stints in Portland, Seattle, and Oakland ... and maybe more, who knows. I'm still finding out! It's a constant whirlwind of The Lord of the Rings In Concert: The Fellowship of the Ring press until Oct. 14. Then I'll just head home and collapse in a heap.
Until then, however, I'll try to keep you updated on the travel. Keep your eyes on the Twitter and Facebook feeds, since they're usually the easiest to update quickly.
I can't think of a better way to celebrate the one year anniversary of this great ongoing adventure! Thank you always for joining me. See you soon!
