The Fedora

It’s been a long time coming but I finally hit Kohl’s and got myself a fedora. I am not sure if that is going to make me a better writer. Actually I know that it won’t. But I don’t care. I like hats. I like fedoras. And I think writers should wear them. So I […]

You Need a Bigger Theme

A long time ago there was a girl. And the future wasn’t something meant to be made. We were just waiting for the thing we could already see, arrive. We lived our lives together. That way.

We Got the Rights

When John and I were negotiating the book deal many moons ago, we were adamant that we weren’t going to do anything unless we had the opportunity to get our rights back. As of last month, that happened. We are now free to do anything we want with the book — which for us means […]

This newsletter is the outgrowth of The Downtown Writers Jam podcast. What that means is I will collect information about the authors I interview, book happenings around the Web, and other literary events that I find interesting. Without you, I'm just a crazy guy sitting in his office furiously screaming on the page for no reason.
