Reading at Left Bank Books in Seattle to a packed house. More pics and debriefs in ensuing posts. An incredible end to a memorable and exhausting week.
Have you seen this Milos Formon Movie, Taking off?
This is a clip from it.
I’m taking off too. For my first AWP, the launch of my first book, my first reading.
See you there. And watch the whole movie. I worked for a while as a blurb writer for a cable station. I had to write up classic movies. Had to think of a million different words for ‘hilarious’ and a million for ‘heartbreaking.’ This is a two million word movie.
This is where a bunch of us will be reading at AWP.
Gone to print!
I’ll be reading from American Monster at Stories Books in Echo Park on Feb 24, with a dauntin line-up that includes Ben Loory and John Skip. And then, as part of AWP, at Left Bank Books on March 1.
Details and links to follow.
As far as reality goes, the Novella is digging its spiky heels in as I near the end. Sorry, honey, you got the heels, I got the paddle and if you don’t get on with ending your sorry ass, I’m gonna spank it!
