An essay on the process of writing my book of 880 stories was published recently on Necessary Fiction! I genuinely hope it can help some writers out there cope with the hopelessness inherent in any creative project...
Thank you to Book Riot for including my book on its list of “7 Small Press Books to Read in February”! Incredibly thrilled, honored to be on the same list as Gary Lutz. His book, Stories in the Worst Way, is filled some of the most dazzling sentences I have ever read. If you haven’t encountered his work, please do check it out ASAP. In all seriousness, read his work before you read mine.
If you're going to AWP, drop by the A&D Neighborhood Bar in DC, February 8 at 7 PM: I'll be reading with Alyse Knorr! I'll also be at the Green Mountains Review table during AWP, so feel free to come by and say hello!
Deeply honored that Dennis Cooper, author of some of the most amazing books you will ever read, liked my book. If you haven’t done so already, check out his epic, sprawling blog ASAP. It is, hands down, one of the best things on the internet: Dennis Cooper Blog.
Pre-orders for When He Sprang From His Bed... are coming soon on Amazon, but a limited number of pre-release copies are available now on Small Press Distribution. Please support this amazing non-profit website: they do incredible work supporting small presses and small press authors!
