What I'm doing this summer--Book Launches, Lectures, Book Fairs!
A lot of things going on this summer. So many, I'll lay them out like a calendar!
1. Saturday, June 15th--I'll be at the Brooklyn Writer's Conference pitching my manuscript for A Reckoning in Brooklyn to various agents. It's time this book saw the light of day. One of them is going to feel froggy and jump on this project, or I'll self publish it myself through Amazon for Christmas. I apologize to my readers for the delay, but this publishing industry is byzantine and neurotic. I'm not waiting for them to get out of their own way anymore, and I'm sure my wife can find something to spend the extra fifteen percent I won't be paying an agent. I will keep you posted.
2. Thursday, June 27th--At the famous Coogan's Bar and Restaurant. 4015 Broadway, NY, NY 10032. The first official launch for 13 Stories-Fractured, Twisted & Put Away Wet. We'll be up there with Pete and Dave and the old Manhattan North Crew from 7 PM-9 PM.
3. Thursday, July 18th--At the Nutty Irishman in Farmingdale, 323 Main Street--The Official Long Island Launch of 13 Stories! We'll be there from 7 PM-9 PM!
4. Saturday, August 10th--Performance Poets Association is hosting me at the Levittown Town Hall, 201 Levittown Parkway, Levittown, NY, 2 PM-4 PM. Writing Crime & Why We Are So Compelled To Read It--I will discuss the art of writing crime from both the detective's and criminal's perspective, using examples from my own writing as well as Crime Masters like Joseph Wambaugh, Nelson DeMille, Lee Child, Arthur Conan Doyle, etc.
That will take care of it for now. I'm still forming up extra dates in August and events for September. I will inform you as they become available. It goes without saying that signed copies of All 3 of my books will be available at each event! Hope to see you at one or all of them!
