KGB Yesterday

Last night at The KGB Bar just proved my old saying: All book readings should be held in taverns.

A grand time was had by all. I think both Jim Kelly and I rocked the house with our chosen pieces; I read something a little funny for a change, and Jim read two creepy horror-tinged tales, and read them really, really well.

Books were signed, free drinks consumed, and I met a lot of really cool people. The always interesting Frank Marcopolos said hey, and Inner Swine Security Chief Ken West popped in to collect his usual blackmail payment, but stayed to have a drink and listen politely. Our amazing agent and editor also came by to cheer me on, or possibly to make sure I didn’t do anything embarrassing, always a challenging job.

As soon as i have some pictures I’ll post or link to a few. Thanks to everyone who came by, and hopefully we’ll do it again very soon!

UPDATE: A neat write-up is located here, along with (thankfully) blurry photos! There are clearer photos you can find on Google if you dare, but I am. . .not attractive in them. Thanks to Jay at Bookratination for coming, and for the write-up!

    Thanks for coming, man – I will update your links.



    I am suing the world, dammit. Any time the word “pig” or “swine” is used, I should be getting a shiny new penny.

    Your visage appears terribly on my iPhone. This is no fault of my iPhone, I’m sure.

    Poofter or otherwise, my iPhone needs no fixing so fix your countenance lest I wretch all over my keyboard yet one more time.

    I’ll wait.
