My news for the week:
Holiday preparations are getting underway, which means spending more time at special events which tend to happen this time of year. I did attend an "open mic" night December 3, reading a poem that was featured in The Cruiserweight.
In addition, I've already committed to some upcoming virtual events to kick off the January 2011 tour. As always, the appearance page is always updated on my website, so keep checking there for a complete appearance schedule in the New Year.
Look for my show Book and Author Talk to debut sometime in January 2011. Here's your chance to hear this column live instead of just reading it!
Tim Roux informed me over the weekend that The Cruiserweight will be released in paperback by Night Publishing "very soon." I know a great deal of you were curious, the most recent inquirer being KJ Kron. Since this is December, interest is rising more than usual. No exact date yet, but "very soon" doesn't sound too far away.
In case you missed it, have a look at my latest interview on Clan Elves of the Bitterroot.
