THANK YOU so much to everyone who packed Happy Ending last night to hear Nick Flynn, Jonathan Ames, Stephen Elliott, Michelle Robinson, and Zane! The reading was wonderful (and those who couldn’t make it, we’ll have YouTube videos for you soon. Extra special thanks to Nichelle, Steven, Stacie Joy and Gloria, who helped me pass out the umpteen bags of candy, chips and porn I had to give out, and Stacie Joy and Brian Van for taking photos. I heard that someone came from Buffalo to go to the reading!
The best news of the night, I think, is that Zane’s anthology Succulent: Chocolate Flava II is debuting on the New York Times bestseller list this Sunday! So you can check out my story “Devil’s Worship” in this gorgeous hardcover book. You can also catch Zane and other contributors tomorrow night at Hue-Man bookstore from 6 pm – 8 pm, which will be taped for (I think) Cinemax. I would so be there, but I’ll be in Miami doing the reading Lip Service.
I’ve had a very stressful and draining week, so wish me luck in getting out of the snow and into Miami okay. Lots of good news too, but I need to regroup a little bit this weekend so I don’t have another freakout like I did when I got home last night. Stay warm!
