Changing Hands Bookstore on Feb 2, 2019!

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 . . .

  1. I thought I'd read twenty minutes. I read too long. Though it was good stuff.
  2. 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.
  3. 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."
  4. 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.

    But thank you for coming, friends. And I always need to reiterate that point Matt brought up: This is the book I wanted to write. 

Matt Bell

See that big, huge mocha on the table? If you read, you get a free drink from the First Draft Book Bar!

Jenifer Anseth. I think I've known her for my whole life. She spells our name with one "n." I'm still dealing.

Jill and Lara! Jill is one of those full-of-life people. Lara Smith (right) is, um, my better half of Snotty Literati

Juliana: she has beautiful eyes

Ruth and I were seriously in Yuma Hall at the U. of AZ together. She showed, and I'm really touched.

Susan Huber is one of my best friends ever. Hello, Sam!
Jackie Cowsill. I. Can't. Even.

Kate and her rock n' roll husband: Kate is a beautiful Renaissance woman. I learn things from her.

Look at these great women: Jessica (fab hair ALWAYS), Adeline (I truly adore her), and Laysa (I admitted to Laysa that I still don't know how to pronounce her name even though I've thought she's cool for about six or seven years). Some of my favorite women are MIA from here.
Odette and Sara! Too much backstory, another book! 

Chhayal and Sara! Chhayal is chic, friends.
