About Me is under construction. But it will be up here eventually. I'd like to think you get a pretty good idea of who I am just from reading. ;)
It's pretty rare that I read anything that is just mailed or emailed without me actually asking for it. I'd prefer authors or publicists just introduce yourself and add maybe a short synopsis to an email. Then if it sounds like something I or my students might be interested in I'll say "Yes. Please! I'll try it out and if I like it I'll post about it." If I don't like it I usually will just not say anything on the blog. If it's not something I think I'd be interested in I won't ask for more information and we can both go about our business without any misunderstandings.

(Not actually happening yet ... but if authors want to send me books? Or app developers want to let me try apps out for free? I'm open to it ... but with the understanding that I will write what I really think. If I love it? I'll say I love it. If I don't love it? I'll either not post about it at all or post that I was not a big fan.)
