Bookfest for Charity! Today!

Hey, this great annual event is happening again tomorrow. An absolutely killer lineup of authors, readings, food, and music. Excellent chance to buy some Christmas presents that matter, with a big chunk of the money going to charity, including PNA and the The Greater Seattle Bureau of Fearless Ideas. I'll be reading at 4pm and signing the rest of the while, but mostly standing there feeling good about something for once. You should definitely swing on by.

Election 2016

Here's my final column for The Weeklings, "25 Ways Hillary Can Fix America By Wednesday". It's one that I've been thinking about for six months, but finally got around to writing. Like it or not, Hillary will be elected tomorrow. After which I am going to drink a bowl of ayahuasca and lie in a sensory deprivation tank for two weeks. In the meantime, here are 25 non-partisan, commonsense ways that President Clinton can immediately make this country great again. In a sense, Trump has already won, because he has changed discourse forever. But not my discourse. Article includes at least three bonus Chuck Norris jokes. Plus, the first person who tattoos this entire thing on their back in a barely-legible calligraphy font wins a free T-shirt. Pics required. Selah.

Arty Interview

So I was interviewed/photographed for this film/lit project recently, which might be amusing to check out. The cafe the photos were taken in was packed, and I was keenly aware of various people watching over their laptops and omelettes, trying to decide if I was someone famous, or an unbelievable tool. Of course they're not mutually exclusive, but I think the unspoken consensus was definitely on Phillips Head. Also, you try wearing better socks.

Amazon Pick of the Week!

For some reason, Welcome Thieves is a Kindle 25 Select all this week. Lots of imposing company on the list, and a few I'm pretty sure I could wrestle to the mat. Hey, go ahead and be cynical, but it's kinda cool to be selected as an "exciting summer read." I was born to be a summer read. And if everyone seeing this post breaks down and buys two copies, it'll sell 30 more copies than it would have otherwise. So, yea, gonna feel special all day, walk around in my boxers and drink mint tea and sing Elton John to the plants

Dock Street Salon

Hey, Saturday night I will be reading with the mighty Ben Tanzer, who's touring with his latest "Be Cool". It's part of the Dock Street Salon at Phinney Books. There will be free pudding, and rude lit spoken aloud in overly serious voices. Then a roundtable discussion between me and Ben moderated (refereed?) by Joshua Mohr. Yeah, you should definitely come. 7pm.
