On Wednesday, I went to this
Urban ReThink was the site of one of my more humbling moments as a first time author back when it was UrbanThink so I was afraid that those old gremlins were still there when I heard this was going down.
I’m incredibly glad to be so wrong.
The redesign of the space is wonderful and what confirmed for me that all the bad energy was exorcised was that the release party was packed. It made me tremendously proud of my hometown that so many people came to a book release party for a fiction collection.
About the collection itself: it is gorgeously put together from a design perspective and from a contributor perspective including Chris Heavener and fellow PANK contributor, Gene Albamonte (who I also got to meet). Burrow Press has brought their a-game. They give me incredible hope for the literary health of Orlando. Thank you Burrow Press for doing something to contribute to the literary scene in Orlando.

The Scrambler published two poems of mine, which you can read here and here. Also, Orange Alert picked up the audio of “The Kama Sutra of Hansel & Gretel” which is in my e-chapbook My Hands Are As Thick As Dreams. You can listen to this consistently awesome podcast here.
