This has been a remarkable year for me, one of the best. I have gotten to travel and read and hold forth on a variety of subjects. I have done chapbooks with Lidia Yuknavitch, met many wonderful writers and editors, gotten check from Condé Nast, and won a PEN award. I honestly doubt I’ll see another year like this one. Thank you all.
…..And now it is time for me to turn the Internet way down and write more…..
Starting on February 1st I will be hiding out, taking a break from blogs and interviews and trying to ignore Facebook the best I can. If you write me and I’m slow to respond, this is why. It’s not personal. I will still post upcoming events, but perhaps more perfunctorily. This is not out of a lack of gratitude, but rather from a need for internal quiet while I write this next novel. Over time, news will come up and I will put it up here. In fact, some is coming soon.
But for now, here are my readings, podcasts, and events through April.
Tuesday, January 22nd at 7pm EST/ 4pm PST I will be doing a live podcast for The Author’s guild with Pauls Toutonghi. Pauls will interview me about Zazen and then two weeks later on Monday, Feb 4th I will interview him about Evel Knievel Days.
