Burning River and the Alibi...

TITLE LOGO.png

Chris Bowen, who I’ve shared a press and a cover designer with over the years, was kind enough to give me some space to ramble (and post my cool bookmaking video) over at his Burning River blog. It was a good time, and speaks a bit to how and why we should each find our own way. You can read it HERE.

And the Arts Editor Maggie Grimason over at The Alibi asked me a few questions about Chinese Gucci, which was mighty kind of her! Pop on over for a read and maybe let them know you enjoyed it…and possibly even defend me against my (actual, truly) good buddy Craig’s slanderous (and hilarious) claims!

PAPER AND INK ISSUE13 002.jpg

And by that I mean Paper & Ink #13, Tales From the Bar Side.

I've got a short story, Behind the FAT CHANCE in this boozy and ferocious issue of Martin Appleby's magazine. In the "Notes From the Editor" he wisely points out that a certain kind of dive bar is getting harder and harder to find, and that is a sad thing indeed. I enjoyed many a slow and low moment over a pint and my thoughts, even scribbled a few poems on napkins in exactly the kinds of places this issue celebrates, and doubt I'll ever find a haunt as great as they used to be. Martin was especially patient with me as I tinkered with the story, considering (but ultimately abandoning) a serious rewrite of the end. Still this is a better, tighter version of the story. But don't get the issue for that. Check out all these other folks:

It's easy as pie to get a copy, as you can order through ETSY. Numbers are limited, so don't sleep on it!

Holy & Intoxicated

There is, in All of Us...

Unlucky

Holy & Intoxicated, a double-sided broadside series out of the UK, was nice enough to include me in their most recent release. I'm not certain what I will do with my copies but until I do decide I figure any order from the STORE might just get one on the cuff.

Work continues on many fronts, including an UNABRIDGED audio version of A DEEP & GORGEOUS THIRST, and some exciting early planning on my first novel, CHINESE GUCCI. No release dates for either, as there's lots left to do on both...but they're certainly getting my free hours and attention!

The other thing I've been enjoying is collage. I finished this one today:

Bomb-y Dearest

I have a grip of collage set up as a gallery HERE. If you're interested in purchasing an original, feel to DROP ME A LINE.
