3x3 and Guerrilla Playhouse

Saluton! After many months of procrastination and filibustering, I have finally completed a new book which is now available for purchase. 3x3 is a collection of the three 3 Day Novels I've written between 2007 and 2009. If you'd like a free sample of what's in the book, you can still download Big Nasty Heartbreaker, my first 3 Day Novel and a shortlisted entry for 2007. The full collection also includes the novels The Nightjars and Cat Killer, neither of which gathered any accolades, but one of which is still pretty good, in my opinion (here's a fun game: buy the book and try to guess which one is the "good one!") If you want to buy the book at a physical store instead of online, within the next few days you'll be able to pick it up at The Bazaar in Roanoke, VA (675 Brandon Avenue SW).
In other news, there's a hip new event in downtown Roanoke that you need to check out. Every second and fourth Sunday at 8PM, you can make your way down to Studio Roanoke (30 Campbell Avenue) and check out Guerrilla Playhouse, a combination theatrical performance and live music revue. In addition, I'm going to be the regular host of Guerrilla Playhouse, and I have also recently become the Director of Guerrilla Programming at Studio Roanoke, so if you have any questions or suggestions regarding the venue, I'm probably the person you should e-mail, and I encourage you to do so.
Until next time,

Important Updates

Do you know why homeless people don't have blogs? It's not because they don't have computer access, because they can always go to the public library. Rather, it is because when you are homeless, you have many very pressing concerns, such as "Where will I sleep tonight?" and "What is the maximum amount of bourbon I can buy for the smallest amount of money?" Blog updates are pushed to the back burner. All this is to say that I apologize for not updating the blog in a while. Here are some important updates:
1. The reading at The Bazaar was ultimately pushed to February 19th due to city-crippling blizzards. The reading went very well. About 25-30 people attended and no one stormed out. I plan to do another reading at The Bazaar sometime in the future. Also, I have audio of the reading, so I might post some clips from that at some point. Anyway, thanks to everyone who attended!
2. On February 22nd, I was the special guest at a playwriting class at Randolph College in Lynchburg, VA. In the same vein, "Hard Times for Ugly Men" is now required reading for this semester's English Senior Seminar class at my old Alma Mater, Roanoke College. By this time next year, I hope to have utterly destroyed the credibility of the American educational system.
3. In the immediate future, you can expect an update regarding a new book I'm self-publishing through Lulu.com. The current ETA is late March.
Rock on,

A Slight Change of Plans

Greetings! Due to a sudden and unforeseen change of circumstance, the start time for my reading at the Bazaar has been changed from 7PM to 9PM. However, the date, location, and amount of filth remains the same. See you there!
