Thank you, Philly! Thank you, New York!

A very big thanks to everyone who helped to make my trip up north a memorable one—Carleen at Bristen's Eatery in Brooklyn; Ed from Giovanni's Room in Philly; Rachel Kramer Bussel and the amazing writers and readers at "In the Flesh" ; Linda V, Yojani, and all the wonderful folks from The Center. Not to mention Starlita, DJ, Krystle, Phyllis, and Ozzy. I'm looking forward to heading that way again next year.

October Greetings

It’s been a long, long time. I hope you’ve been doing well in the past few months while keeping your loved ones safe and near and avoiding the lure of very bad temptations. As for me, after many personal changes and several new directions, I am finally able to log back into life again. Change can be a mad and painful thing, as we all know, but there’s no choice but to move on through it.

In the meantime, there’s a lot in line for the next few months, the least of which is a trip “north” to New York in a few short weeks. There, I’ll be reading all over Manhattan and Brooklyn and in between I’ll visit Philadelphia for the first time and get to meet the lovely folks at Giovanni’s Room.

Check out my schedule and stop by. There will be delicious cupcakes at Happy Endings in Manhattan or everyone to nibble on during all that hot oral sex talk.

The new book is doing well. It got a nice mention in the AJC (thanks, Sara!) a few weeks ago and has been getting great reviews from readers and publications all over the place. Thank you for making it such a success!

That’s it from me for now, but you’ll be hearing from me again soon. In the meantime, happy reading, happy loving. I hope to see you in New York or Giovanni’s Room in Philly!
