Thanks again to Books and Booze for putting this show together. I look forward to another.

Books & Booze Reading in St. Louis

BT on stageOn June 22nd I had a reading in St. Louis which was put on by the Books & Booze crew. It was a good time…finally got to meet Jessica, Renee, and Dakota along with some authors that I had only previously known through the Internet. It was also my first time reading live from Good Sex, Great Prayers and the revamped version of Out of Touch coming out through Perfect Edge. For those of you that bought Out of Touch at the show, you’ve probably noticed by now that the piece I read isn’t in the actual book. All in due time.

Books & Booze has since put up a preview recording which you can check out HERE. I’m being told that a full-length video is in the works, but for now, this should give you an idea of what went down at the show. Below is a timestamped legend of the reading, complete with hyperlinks to each author’s Amazon page.

Fred Venturini: 00:00 – 15:00

Salvatore Pane: 15:00 – 25:20

J. David Osborne: 25:20 – 34:15

David James Keaton: 34:15 – 55:50

Gordon Highland: 55:50 – 1:11:55

Brandon Tietz: 1:11:55 – end

Books and Booze radio interview and live show

books and booze live showJust in case you missed it, I recently did an interview with the good people over at Books and Booze. In it you get some initial reactions to the new novel, Good Sex, Great Prayers (thank you Renee for being my guinea pig), and we also talk about what’s happening with the 3rd edition re-release of Out of Touch.

You can listen to the full interview HERE

Also, the B&B people will be putting on a live show in St. Louis next month. You should most definitely come out if you can. It’s a limited space event so be sure to RSVP on Facebook so we can put you on the list.

Not sure what the other guys are doing, but I’ll be reading some Kim Kardashain poetry, a little bit from GSGP, and I may do a game on stage involving books and booze (to keep it in theme). As far as merchandise goes, I’ll be bringing a box of Out of Touch (2nd Edition) copies with me. I’ll be selling those for only $5 a piece–and yes–I will most definitely sign them for you.

See ya at the show!
