Fall 2017 World Tour! (well, my world, not *the* world)

It's going to be a busy fall! (Yeah, for me, four events in three months is downright overwhelming.)

I'll be selling and signing books in PA and NJ starting 9/1. Stop by and say hello.

Library Express at the Steamtown Mall in Scranton, PA Friday, 9/1 7:00-9:00: This is a cool spot for book browsing--great selection of off-beat and interesting stuff. If enough people show up I'll do a reading. Maybe I'll go meta and read the big climactic scene that takes place in a mall.

Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market at the Historic Roebling Wire Works building in Trenton, NJ Sunday, 10/22 10:00-5:00. This one is huge and always a blast. This will be my third time at the TPRFM. I may take a break from it after this while I work on my next book, so if you're in the area and would like to pick up a copy of "This Is What You Want. . . " or "The Night Bazaar," stop by my table.

NEPA Punk Rock Flea Market at the Kingston Armory in Kingston, PA Sunday, 10/29 12:00-8:00. Looking forward to finally doing an event in NEPA, where I now live.

Flemington Punk Rock Flea Market in Flemington, NJ Sunday, 11/19. Real close to my home town of Hopewell! Looks like a cool variety of vendors at this one (and also me).

From my novel. The main character contemplates the aftermath of a skinhead riot at the club:

These guys were all the same. It wasn't muscle or even hair-trigger rage--it was sheer stupidity that gave them strength. They were never going away. They'd stay here forever, never changing, because they couldn't imagine anything else, or make any other choice. That was the only power they had. They were dumber than everybody else.
