I’m on the tail end of a business trip in Memphis and this time has been better than the last, partially because I got to go to Nashville and eat great food and hang out among great company, and partially because time has flown by with work and writing in my hotel room.
My life and art crossed this past Saturday when talking with the friend I was hanging out with about life and I brought up that I’m a miserable person. It was a little hard to articulate my position accurately when drunk on whiskey and ginger flavored ice cubes but I managed to do it better here.
I received my contract from YesYes Books on Sunday for my second collection this past Sunday and I’m excited to get the ball rolling on this one. Now that I’ve have some emotional distance, I’m ready to attack this manuscript again. What this collection will essentially be is a graphic novel but with poetry and flash fiction. YesYes has a great design aesthetic and I’m excited that my next collection of poems/flash fiction is theirs to bring to fruition.
I wrote a Jesus Christ, Boy Detective story to commemorate Halloween and you can check that out here. Also, In Between Altered States released a deleted scene from my Jesus Christ, Boy Detective case file We’re Not In Kansas Anymore. You can check that out here.
UP Magazine published two of my poems from my Porn From The Blind series in their Halloween issue, which you can check out here.
