On Saturday, despite record-breaking temperatures in the high 90s and a record crowd of 150,000 people in Washington D.C. for the National Book Festival, I recorded a very cool event in my personal and professional life. I had the extraordinary pleasure of interviewing author Ken Follett. (Pardon me while I continue my slow (and reluctant) descent from Cloud 9.)

Fall of Giants, the first in the author's new Century trilogy, comes out tomorrow (the books are in the building and ready to hit our shelves in the morning!). In other words, we are READY! So ready, in fact, Jen told me that she's got it on order for delivery to her Kindle at midnight tonight! Obviously, we cannot wait to get our hands on this new epic from one of the world's best storytellers.Tomorrow will come soon enough. In the meantime, here's what the author has to say about the book.
