Steve read from his books Motherless Soul and White Horse Regressions, while Ray read a new piece, and a story called “Spring Planting” from his collection In a World of Small Truths. I read a chapter from Conversations Among Ruins.
Despite the cold and the threat of adverse weather, we had a good turnout. We are grateful to those who came, to Brian Lampkin for having us, and for Bethany Chafin at WFDD, who was kind enough to interview us and to help spread the word about our books and the event. Click here to listen to the radio interview we did.
I certainly hope I have the pleasure of reading with Steve and Ray again at some point in the very near future.
Here are some pictures.
Actually, I have done some blog posts, but not for this blog. Starting February 16, I’ll be doing a virtual book tour for The Brothers’ Keepers with Goddess Fish Promotions. The tour will range for four weeks, with twenty stops scheduled along the way. I’ll keep you posted as it moves along.
Meanwhile, I’ll be promoting Conversations Among Ruins (CAR) through radio and bookstores.
I will be on It Matters Radio on Thursday, February 12. The show starts at 9:00 PM EST. I’m usually in bed by 8:00, so it should be quite interesting. The topic will be mental illness in literature, and I’ll be discussing CAR in that context.
Toward the end of this month I will be on Wake Forest University’s NPR-affiliate, WFDD, to talk about CAR, and dual diagnosis. I will be joined by two fabulous authors, Steve Lindahl and Ray Morrison. It looks like this will happen on February 26 at 11:00, but we’re awaiting final confirmation.
I will be at Scuppernong Books in Greensboro on March 5 at 7:00 PM along with Steve Lindahl and Ray Morrison.
I will keep you updated on more appearances as they develop.
Finally, I am working hard on the next Nicholas Branson novel. I won’t say too much in order to avoid spoilers, but I can promise it will be at least as exciting as The Brothers’ Keepers!
Thank you for all the support you’ve given me since I began this blog.
I am interested in hearing topics you’d like to read more about, so please feel free to suggest some in your comments or e-mail.
All the best,
