the smell of my desperation has become a stench

A quick announcement

Jon and I are going to be in New York City next week for a couple of days, and I’m working with my publisher to try and set up a book signing somewhere in Manhattan on Wednesday afternoon (May 7). Four of the contributors live in the area and will also be there to sign books: Alice Bradley, Sarah Brown, Doug French, and Greg Allen.

Once I know all the details I’ll let you know. Right now we’re just trying to find a place that can host us on such short notice, so we may just end up setting up a table in the middle of Times Square. If you’re in New York next Wednesday please come say hello, although I cannot guarantee that Jon and I will actually survive the cab ride from the airport into the city. Last time we were there our cab driver stopped in Queens to shoot a man in an alley, and I had to promise I wouldn’t blog about it.
