Brass’s birthday. Keeping busy. Must shower and do laundry and pack and, apparently, carbo-load.

Please someone come see me in Atlanta or Nashville or Waterbury this week. Check the events page for deets.

BookPage said really nice things about Brass!

I’ve got an essay up about being a writer/librarian at LitHub. I love being a nerd. They’re also hosting a giveaway for Brass here. Thanks for the love, LitHub! If you don’t win one of the five copies, just go buy it, you cheapskate.

I’ve also got an essay up at Lenny Letter today. It’s sad. I don’t talk or write about my brother much because I assume people don’t want to hear/read about this kind of thing, or maybe it’s because I’ve been a little too cowardly to face it myself.
