Books Q&A: In quite a state

If it's oddball or eerie, you just might read about it in Michelle Souliere's newly published 'Strange Maine.'

BROWN BAG LECTURE. Portland Public Library, noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday. Call 871-1700 or visit www.portland library.com.

BOOKS IN BOOTHBAY. Souliere will be one of 40 authors appearing at various locations from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. July 10. Visit booksinboothbay.blogspot.com.

Q: How long has the book been out and how is it doing?

A: It just came out in May, so it is quite fresh. It seems to be doing fairly well for a small press. I'm selling it here at my store, and it is at Longfellow Books, and up the state at Mr. Paperback. 

Q: It says in the About the Author section that you also are an artist. Did you do any of the drawings in the book?

A: Yep, all of them. And the photography, too. 

Q: So what do you do, and do you sell your art in the bookstore or anyplace else?

A: I do pen and ink, and watercolors. I used to have a studio before all of this happened, and I sold my work there before all of this happened, but I haven't had any time lately, although I do some illustrations for my husband's T-shirt company. 

Q: So what are you working on now?

A: Well, I have a new issue of "Strange Maine Gazette" to do. There is some good stuff there, but I'll keep it back for now. And I am working on a book on Bigfoot in Maine with Loren Coleman. 

Q: But you have a chapter on that in this book.

A: Yes, but this is going to be a much more complete investigation, or rather a survey.
