In the words of Pink Floyd (I was actually more of a Led Zep kind of gal), "Wish you were here." There.
I had the honor of reading from my new novel, And So We Die, Having First Slept, on Feb 2, 2019. I had the further honor of Matt Bell's calming, professional, he's-done-this-before presence. I'll tell you a few tidbits and show you the photos . . .
- I thought I'd read twenty minutes. I read too long. Though it was good stuff.
- Jackie Cowsill filmed video, so there will be clips. Most of us are horrified about this, but I have come to believe that Jackie knows insider info that I don't.
- I did not get photos of A LOT of special people--including my own spouse and that glamor couple, Anthony (cover artist) and Adrienn Vasquez (True Story: First time I saw them, I turned to my husband and said, "THAT is a good-looking couple."
- I was happy to discuss Sappho because sweet Shauna Morales asked about her. DO NOT FEEL BAD IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHO SAPPHO IS, BUT PLEASE LOOK HER UP.
