Upcoming Reading: "I'm Your Biggest Fan"

Yes, I will be making a rare public appearance next week: I'll be a reader Thursday night, July 26, at So Say We All's July VAMP (Visual Art, Music, Performance) Showcase in San Diego.

These readings always have a theme. And the theme this time around is "I'm Your Biggest Fan."

So I'll be reading my stalker story, "Are You Somebody?" (published in Juked a while back).

Details here.

"The first kiss plummeted him down a hole and popped him out into a world he thought he could get along in -- as if he'd been pulling hard the wrong way and was now turned around headed downstream. They spent the whole afternoon among the daisies kissing. He felt glorious and full of more blood than he was supposed to have in him."
