I recovered just in time to read at There Will Be Madness, the first ever fiction slam at There Will Be Words. I tapped into my old friend TSRSBYIAR in the first two rounds, reading “Primer” and “Just Do It” but lost in the final round to Trevor Fraser after reading “Quality Control” from my latest chapbook, We Will Celebrate Our Failures. It was a lot of fun and am looking forward to doing this fiction slam format again next year.
My novella is coming out soon through HOUSEFIRE and the fine folks sent me a screen cap of the book trailer for Bodies Made of Smoke and it made me smile because it is from part of the book. If you read it while it was available online, you might recognize this.
Finally, Part 1 of Everything Will Be Ok is up. It was one of those rare AWP readings that had less than ten authors (and delicious meat smells). You can go listen to it here.
