Back in June I wrote here about the necessary task of arranging events to help readers meet and get to know my soon-to-be-published short story collection, Quiet Americans. Lots of you shared sage advice in comments (and via backchannel), and I remain very grateful for that.
I’m happy to report that within the past week, I’ve scheduled the first post-publication event! I don’t want to say too much about it quite yet, because we’re still ironing out a couple of details, and I’m neurotic enough to think that if I start promoting this before the venue does it will somehow all fall apart, but suffice to say that if you’re going to be in D.C. area around the time of the Association of Writers & Writing Programs Conference in early February, you should consider yourself invited to a Sunday afternoon event (February 6)! More details to come.
