Seriously, friends, a quick review on Amazon makes a big, big difference, and fully replaces any birthday/Christmas/book-release/quinceanera present you were ever going to buy me. If you would like to review the book for a journal or magazine, let me know!

Come to a show:
I'll be reading around the East Coast in a few weeks (posting schedule in the comments), and will be making West Coast plans shortly thereafter. I'd love to see your faces.

With the last round of major edits behind me, I'm excited to finally, in front of Facebook and everyone, announce that my novel, Great Divide, will be published by Unsolicited Press in April, 2014. Many of you have read pieces or versions of this book over the years, and the feedback, support, and camaraderie has meant everything to me. Thanks, everyone. I'm sure I will write another novel's worth of updates once the book is in print and for sale, so watch out. And now for some links:

My story, The Grand Tour, is up at the White Whale Review today. This is a really lovely journal which I've been reading for a long time, and getting a piece here has been almost like a goal that has kind of pushed me forward, or something that I've thought about and hoped for but never been able to achieve ...and you know, I'm just having a hard time thinking of a metaphor here.
