The second half of my book tour starts this Saturday at the Gaithersburg Book Festival in Maryland.
After that it’s Arlington, Pittsburgh, New York, Philadelphia, Washington, Lancaster — and online. Click on my Events page for more detailed information. Hope to see you at one reading or another!
If you want to read a bit about what touring takes, check out my “Training for Touring” at the University of Nebraska Press’s blog (and see how Bon Jovi can help).
Thanks — as always — for reading!
The first half of my book tour is done and what a lovely time I’ve had!
At Politics and Prose, Washington, DC.
Here are my upcoming events for Be with Me Always. Details and updates can be found on my Events page. Hope to see you somewhere between New York and Oregon!
Today was launch day for my debut essay collection, Be with Me Always.
In the morning I visited the Essays & Criticism section at Politics and Prose and saw it on the shelves:
In the afternoon I read that it made the top 100 in “Best Sellers in Essays” on Amazon, thanks to all of you who ordered it today and pre-ordered it earlier!
And tonight I’m going to eat some cake and watch Wuthering Heights because that’s where the title comes from (not the film, but the novel).
Be with me always – take any form – drive me mad! only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you!
And that is a very good book birthday.
In just ten days Be with Me Always will be officially out in the world! If you can’t wait, you can pre-order it here.
Meanwhile, Poets & Writers gives a tiny preview of it in their column “Page One:Where New and Noteworthy Books Begin” along with these other lovely titles:
I’ll be posting more news soon, but if you’d like to look at my reading schedule to hear more from Be with Me Always in person, you can find it here.
Thanks — as always — for your interest!
I’m very happy to announce the launch of my new literary magazine, After the Art.
After the Art publishes personal review essays that explore the way reading can enrich art. You can read the first issue here (with essays by Diane Seuss, Michael White, Jean Harper, and Nicole Breit), or check out our guidelines here.
As always, thanks for your interest!
I just learned from my lovely publisher, Red Bird Chapbooks, that Devotional was on display at Poets House in New York during the summer of 2018, and is now part of their library!
