And we're off! Huge thanks once again to my editor, Matt Bell, my designer, Steven Seighman, and my publishers, Dan Wickett and Steven Gillis. February 12th is unquestionably the best day in the entire year for releasing a book. Even leaving aside the whole Mardi Gras situation, what other day can say that it is Oglethorpe Day AND the anniversary of Julio Cortázar's death AND Paul Bunyan Day AND Abraham Lincoln's birthday AND Darwin Day AND the day Lady Jane Grey was beheaded for treason? No other day can say that, can they? Not a single one.
Big-time thanks to the folks at Electric Literature for running the title story of my new collection as part of their Recommended Reading gig. Thanks too to Dan Wickett and the rest of my peeps at Dzanc Books for getting my work out in front of them, and for all those kind words in the intro.
