Come out to hear Carmen Maria Machado, Tom Cardamone and myself read at the oldest GLBTQ bookstore in the country.
I plan to read from the queerest section of my illustrated chapbook THE NECTAR OF NIGHTMARES. And I will have a few copies of ltd. edition (now SOLD OUT) on hand.
Author/Editor Tom Cardamone interviewed me over at Lambda Literary. You can check it out here.
I had a wonderful time at the OutWrite Book Festival this year. The festival took place in the Reeves Center at 14th and U Streets. I took a picture of the beautiful mobiles that hang over the main hall. I was on the Young Adult/New Adult panel with two other authors–Brian Centrone (pictured) and Brittany Fonte (pictured). I stuck around afterwards to listen to various readings and panels, and I bought a copy of Tom Cardamone’s new anthology, The Lavender Menace: Tales of Queer Villany (pictured). I got to meet author Richard McCann (pictured) and legendary Violet Quill author Andrew Holleran(pictured).
The best part? My 82-year old mother came to hear me read! How cool is that?
