Pop Offensive is TONIGHT!


Yes, that's right; just when you thought your legs had stopped jitterbugging uncontrollably from my last episode, here I am to start you frugging anew with another collection of catchy and danceable tunes from around the world and throughout pop music history. It all starts at 7pm tonight, Wednesday August 15, streaming live from kgpc969.org. BE THERE!

It's all on video.

I am well aware that I am a slouchy, soft spoken monster, a point that is mercilessly driven home whenever I have to watch a video like the one below, which chronicles my book event at Oakland's Great Good Place for Books last Friday evening. However, once your revulsion at my misshapen form subsides, you might actually glean some useful information about my new book, So Good It's Bad; for instance, that it is full of "rape, incest, torture and murder", a point that is brought up several times, and that it is in no way appropriate for your precious little bundle of joy, as it might stunt him or her and prevent them from growing up to be the unique and very special person they are destined to be.

All moribund humor aside, I owe a debt of thanks for what was truly a wonderful event to Midlife Mixtape's  Nancy Davis Kho, as fine an interlocutor as one could ask for, and to Kathleen Caldwell at A Great Good Space for welcoming us into her fine establishment--all of which is evident in the video.

Enjoy it, won't you? And if it makes you curious enough about either of my novels to actually read them, just click the cover images in the sidebar to buy the hell out of them.

A great good place to meet me


Now that my new novel, So Good It's Bad, is out and on its way into your sweaty little hands, it's time for me to hit the road and start pinching backs, slapping cheeks, kissing hands, and shaking babies in an effort to convince people to read it. And that process begins this Friday, August 10th, in that little slice of Narnia that is Oakland's Montclair District. The venue is A Great Good Place For Books, which, as you might recall, is the same venue that hosted the launch event for my first novel, Please Don't Be Waiting For Me, about this time last year. As then, I will be interviewed by Midlife Mixtape's Nancy Davis Kho, who has promised to ask the hard questions. Aside from that, I will be reading portions of the book while all the while being shushed by people afraid that I am going to reveal spoilers, answering audience questions, accusations, and prayers, and signing books--as well as showing off my ability to respond to simple commands.

This meet and greet will commence at 7pm, and, yes, there will be refreshments. All ages are welcome, though I can't guarantee that your child won't hear things that will scar him or her for life.

A Great Good Place For Books is located at 6120 La Salle Ave, Oakland  They can be reached by phone at (510) 339-8210 and by email at books@ggpbooks.com.
