But in good news, I have a reading today! Tonight is the November edition of Quiet Lightning. I wrote about it here when I found out I’d be reading, and you can also find the details on my events page.
Here’s another exciting update – if you’re outside of the Bay Area or can’t make it out to Booksmith, you can watch the event LIVE from home online! Just go to this website: http://www.livestream.com/booksmith. Tune in by 7 pm (West Coast time) or soon afterwards if you want to watch me, because I’m reading first. I can assure you that the people who follow me, though, will be well worth watching.
I’m really nervous. The rumors floating about don’t help…like that one saying that someone from the New York Times will be there.
Last plug: if you don’t get a chance to make it to the reading or watch it online (so many options here!), you can still read the work that’s read by buying the latest copy of sParkle and bLink, or read it online for free! Still, there’s only one option that includes an in-person reading, wine and the New York Times. Just sayin’.
Damn you, Prop L. If I need to take a moment to sit on the sidewalk and calm my nerves today, I don’t care what uptight voters have to say about it. Expect the next few days to include some poetry written from a rebellious sit/lie position on the sidewalk. Also, somebody get the bail money ready.
