Enough excellent writing to fill a large tube sock

My Books:

"Some Tears May Be Crocodile, But My Salt Is True."


Powell's Books Portland!

Sent from a friend in Portland. Always nice to be a staff pick at the great Powell's Books, Inc.


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.

Twenty-five Women I Fell in Love With Before I Was Twenty-five

Yeah, so I wrote this essay about all the women I deeply longed for as a youth. It's probably offensive and misogynistic and I should be immediately boycotted. Or, it's a love song crooned by someone with a touch of rhythm but suspect pitch. In any case, it's honest.



Fiction Advocate

Hey, I wrote a tour diary for Fiction Advocate. About what it was like being on tour. You should read it for valuable insights into speaking in front of six people in a strip-mall chain store, but also because it's basically the 2016 version of Fear and Loathing in Tulsa. Plus, it includes the highly exclusive bonus list: "11 Ways You Can Become a Writer." Normally that list is only available as part of my online self-help course "How To Be Less You and More Me", but today? It's totally gratis. Enjoy.


The beast is slain

For what it's worth, I just now sent the final version of Cornelius Wrathbone into my editor. A 442 page YA beast that has gone through many drafts over many years, and was completely torn apart at least twice. And as of an hour ago, it's done. Should be out with Candlewick Press fall of 2017. So, now I'm going to take anywhere from four to eight hours off, and then dig full-time into a literary novel with my man Charles F. Adams over at Algonquin Books, which for the moment is entitled These Unlovely Monsters" First, though, I'm gonna have a sandwich.




Buy Me At JFK

Hey, whattayaknow? Face out at the Hudson Books in JFK. Pretty much the perfect read for that 19 hour flight to Hong Kong.


Joe D weighs In

Joe Dallesandro, king of the Warhol superstars and the man who graces the cover of the Stone's "Sticky Fingers", hanging out with Welcome Thieves in L.A.


Grand Opening!

Hey, tomorrow at 11am I'll be signing books and just sort of hanging out and chatting with authors Garth Stein and David Laskin as part of the grand opening of the absurdly nice Third Place Books Seward Park. Come out and support your new local indie. We are so lucky in Seattle that neighborhood bookstores are thriving. Give them a reason to open another one!
