Westward Ho!

lewis-and-clark-paintingThe Hitless Wonder book tour is now literally coast to coast. Next week I’m going out west where I belong. Where the days are short and the nights are long. I’ll be out there having fun, in the warm*  Seattle sun**.

What brings me to the Puget Sound? On Tuesday, March 12, I’ll be giving a reading and a talk at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma. The talk starts at 3:30, and the reading starts at 5:30. For more info, click HERE. I love Tacoma, by the way. For two of the many reasons why, click HERE and HERE. And PLU is a really great school, in the shadow of Mt. Rainier. I was lucky to spend a year teaching there back in ’07-’08.

The next day, Wednesday, March 13, I head up to King County for a reading at a bar in Seattle*** called Kangaroo and Kiwi. On this night I’ll play some acoustic tunes in addition to the reading. My friend, the writer and musician Dave O’Leary, will also be reading and playing that night. If you’ve read Hitless Wonder, it might interest you to know that Dave was in The Generals, the Detroit band that Watershed befriended in the early ’90s.

If you live in the PNW, hope to see you out there.

West of the Rockies, man. That’s a whole new bird book.

*Well, kinda. 52-degrees isn’t so bad for March, but “warm” might be stretching it a bit.
**And by “sun,” of course, I mean mostly cloudy with a 50% chance of afternoon showers.
***In the Ballard neighborhood, for you hipsters who know the area.

    About 30 pages from finishing Hitless Wonder. My bandmate gave me a copy for my birthday. He said, “Read this. Not only is it good, but you’ll be SO grateful for your music career.” Which means we have a steady gig, once a month, that pays us in free food and beer in a fabulous venue, and we can be home to our wives by 10pm. Plus we predictably make a CD every two years that we sell TENS of. And we get to have wives and kids and day jobs that we love and don’t have to sleep in vans. Love the book, and you guys were a spectacular success, by all important measures, in my opinion. Keep on rocking in Ohio.
