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.

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!

Out on Bainbridge Island

Thursday at Eagle Harbor Book Company. Yeah, this was a lot of fun. A wide-ranging discussion with Claire Dederer that boiled over with rude thoughts and inspired notions, in particular a complete trashing of Pink Floyd, a defense of unlikable protagonists, and the repeated usage of the word "vicariosity". Free Rolling Rock tallboys drove the crowd into a near-frenzy. Apparently it gets a little wild on the island. Here I am explaining why I always wear a black shirt but do not, in fact, excel at "Folsom Prison Blues" during karaoke.
