Work's been a little crazy (tho I suspect that's the normal state of things), so apologies for the lack of recent posts.
More fires about, but none of them super close to us. But there have been evenings where the sun went all red and the sky a blackish yellow. The next day everyone's cars had a light coating of ashes all the way down the mountain and out into San Jose proper.
My new book is launching secretly this month, and I wanted to invite you to the kickoff! Bigfoots In Paradise officially releases in November, but we’ve got a secret sighting for you THIS COMING SATURDAY in CHARLOTTESVILLE at the New Dominion Bookshop @ 7:00 PM. This will be the only opportunity to spot the book in person (and to capture your very own, if you’re quick) before the rest of the world gets its hands on it later in November. It’d be great to see you on Saturday if you can make it, and please feel invited to bring friends; I'll be donating all author proceeds from the launch night to The Haven, a multi-resource day shelter for the homeless here in Charlottesville. Bigfoot masks are strictly optional. Please share this post, if you're up for it--would love to see us pack New Dominion full, if we can!
