Nobody Escapes The Village

It feels like going home.

Katy King's brilliant addition to launch week.

Katy King’s brilliant addition to launch week.

I’m returning to Annie Bloom’s, one of the Northwest’s greatest independent bookstores, at 7 p.m. today. The shop is in Multnomah Village, 7834 SW Capitol Highway, Portland.

I formerly lived in the Village, and this was my “home” bookstore. Great staff, great selection. Even a cat. What more could you ask for in a bookshop?

Tuesday’s signing drew close to 40 people, and last night’s event ran well over 50. Thank you to everyone! I cannot tell you how thrilled we are by the support.

Book Launch Week!

Powell’s

Wow! Great fun Tuesday night at Powell’s in Beaverton. Very good crowd, with lots of excellent questions. So incredibly grateful for the support Northwest independent bookstores shower on us local writers. Thank you.Powell's.talk

Lots of fellow journalists there, like David Sarasohn, Peter Wong and Sara Hottman. Intimidating as hell. Talking about writing in front of that bunch is like being asked to play the piano at the Van Cliburn wedding.

We Are Go For Launch!

I can’t say enough about the fine folks at Powell’s — all locations. The staffs have been picked to be as friendly and fun and helpful as is humanly possible.

Katy and I walked into the City of Books last week with a poster and the staff gushed over it — as if they didn’t have 30 similar posters in every window. They laughed and presented a fuchsia-colored pen so I could sign books — as about 30 other writers likely had done that week. But at that moment, they made me feel like the only writer in town.

That’s a gift.
