Friday nights reading at Brother Bear’s Cafe went well, nice-sized audience, some book sales. My wife, Rebecca Kuder read first, a section of her novel-in-progress, The Eight Mile Suspended Carnival, and I read the prologue to my novella-in-progress, called (for now) New Springdale (for new thing set in Springdale), and then I read from The Painting and the City.
And, when I got home and checked my email I had a nice little surprise. An offer from a French publisher for The Painting and the City. More details after contracts etc. For now, I’ll just say, Yay! and Wow! and I owe Sébastien Doubinsky.
On Tuesday I’m off to New York for my KGB reading. Which is Wednesday August 19th, 7pm at KGB Bar, 85 East 4th Street (just off 2nd Ave, upstairs.), NY, NY.
