Here’s Waldo Reading – 4 on 4th, Feb. 2021 for Bookmarks NC

Here’s my reading that was part of Bookmarks NC‘s February 4 on 4th author event, put on by Winston-Salem Writers! It was so surreal/cool to read with my favorite bookstore, put on by a writing group I was involved in when Waldo wasn’t pubbed yet, a place that helped the book become. Huge thanks to everyone who came, and to Lisa and all her staff for putting this together!

Please go support them, and support other indie bookstores like them!

Cleaver Magazine Love!

AHH!! My story “San Andreas Heaven,” a piece on grief through the lens of video game glitching, just got accepted by Cleaver Magazine! This is a dream for me. I’ve been trying them for years, and this story is an offshoot of my WIP novel The Brother We Share. Actual tears of joy.

It took a revision to get there, but we got there. I don’t know what else to say, other than I’m so glad I didn’t give up:

 

 

The Best Reminder

Sometimes I forget that in the middle of the insanity of last year, my debut novel came out. People have said it meant something to them. Well as far as reminders go, this is the best. My first time seeing my book in a store, and it’s my favorite bookstore: Bookmarks NC. I cried.

Also, bless the alphabet for putting me this close to Murakami on a shelf. 😂😁

Thank you!!!

It makes me so happy to see this. 😊 These 5 out of 5s are huge, especially for indies, and ESPECIALLY for indie debuts. To anyone who’s reviewed my book or plans on doing so: thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
