I wanted to post today, but I’m trying to crank out the new chapter of Shattering Glass and finish raking the leaves and mowing the lawn. So I decided to go for something simple. Here are some videos that had amused and delighted me in the last month or so. I hope they amuse, delight, and possibly even inspire you, too. I’ll be back next week with something more sober and serious. Happy Thanksgiving!
I’ve just uploaded pictures from our trip to the VPC123 festival in Newberry, Michigan. Follow this link to see the pictures, and don’t forget to click ‘Like’ for Connor Coyne. This set includes pictures featuring musicians the Muck Savages, Martyr Me, and Elisabeth Blair.
So I actually created the following before posting yesterday’s “poetic interpretation.” Yes, it is another Friday parody, but this one was put together using all of the recorded footage from the Hungry Rats promotional shoots. What do you think? I like how it turned out. All I ask is that, if it makes you laugh just once, consider sharing it!
You can read the interview here. We talked about 2nd person fiction, self-publishing, writerly education, the avant-garde, and Rust Belt art.
You can read Lee Ford’s Amazon Review here. She wrote that “this novel is part poem, part Sweeney-Todd drunken butcher’s opera, with a dash of logging-town historical fiction. What starts as a dark, licorice-flavored coming-of-age story poses, by the end, a serious mystery in which we as readers feel compelled to choose an allegiance.”
Not many people are aware that Hungry Rats took a promotional tour through Western Europe in October 2010, but it’s true! Unfortunately, I lacked the funds to accompany the book myself; my friend Flawed Events was conveniently there on her honeymoon and agreed to escort the book on its peregrinations. She took some nice pictures of their travels, too. You can see all of them here.
