Finding the Light – album preview

Now that Finding the Light has been mixed and mastered, here’s a six-minute sampler with a little from each track. Intrigued?

UPDATED: Books and Booze Live

UPDATE: Here’s a video of my reading, with two stories. Yes, I was fairly inebriated by this point. That’s right, having just celebrated their first anniversary as a podcast, the Books and Booze crew is throwing down with a shindig on June 22. Readings, dinner, drinks, debauchery, and inevitable hijinks. Cicero’s is a great location, ...
