What a couple of weeks! My book is now two whole weeks old, and she’s already flown across the continental USA. Great events were held in Los Angeles and Oakland. Super writer, Tayari Jones, joined me for a fabulous book launch at Greenlight Bookstore in Brooklyn. And while the tour is just getting started, I’ve heard from the press that we’ve already exhausted the first print run! Deep breath.
-The book heads to Astoria this Thursday, April 13th as part of the Boundless Tales Reading Series (7 pm – Astoria Bookshop), and then I’m off for my long Mid-Atlantic/Appalachian crawl for the rest of April and early May. Be sure to check out the full list of appearances here.
-Huge thanks to Kevin Catalano and the folks at Alternating Current for this lovely interview, in which I wax poetic about the book, home, and my current playlist. Kevin is a fantastic writer and a really superb interviewer.
-Another shoutout to Lambda Literary for highlighting The Rope Swing in their April books roundup. I nearly choked when I saw my name next to Edmund White’s.
More news to come, but wow, wow, wow!
