It seems like every week is a busy week for me these days. This one is no exception. It’s packed full of events with a capital E!
- First off, this Wednesday night is Back Fence PDX. My lady is the co-host and the line-up is stellar. (She’s always giving me hints about what the stories are about)
- On Thursday night, I’m a guest on Live Wire! This is a super fun radio show taped live at the Mission Theater. A couple years ago, we did Haiku Inferno on the show and it was a blast. Looking forward to talking about ACP on the show.
- On Friday at 12:30, I’m signing books for librarians and other sexy folks at the Library Association Conference at the Oregon Convention Center. Then that night–I’m going to see Sam Lipsyte read at Powell’s. Hoo boy–do I love me some Lipsyte!
- On Saturday night, I’m going to see the Road House play at the Someday Lounge.
What else is going on? I just released the new Future Tense title, OK, Goodnight by Emily Kendal Frey and Zachary Schomburg. Read about it and order it at the ol’ Future Tense Books site. It’s super fine stuff!
And in other news, I had a really fun reading at Pilot Books in Seattle last weekend. On our drive back to Portland on Sunday morning, Frayn and I decided to listen only to country music stations. This gave us the idea to listen ONLY to country music stations in the car this week. Favorites so far are “Rain is a Good Thing” by Luke Bryan (great rhyme scheme), “Why Don’t We Just Dance” by Josh Turner (great deep voice that dude has), some song by Miranda Lambert about a house she grew up in (just about shed a tear to that one), and some other party tune by some dude who talks about hicks and beer and lakes. And oh man– this!
Maybe I’ll talk about country music more next time. Until then…
