Upcoming Book Events


We pause now, for a brief commercial break: I’m stoked to announce a series of events with the Kitsap Regional Library system this spring. If you live nearby or happen to be in the area, come on out. It will be great to meet you in person. The library events will be readings and talks, with hopefully some good question/answer and discussion afterward. We’ll also have books for sale and of course, I’m more than happy to inscribe and sign. Details:

Poulsbo, WA Library:  Saturday, April 6th, 2:00pm

Silverdale, WA Library:  Monday, April 8th, 6:00pm

Downtown Bremerton, WA Library:  Monday, April 15th, 6:00pm

If you want more information about the book or to check the “official” event schedule, please visit my website HERE. (If you got here from the website, well then, you already know where it is.)

Also, while we’re taking care of book biz, some kind words from the Washington State Parks System HERE. We will now return you to regularly scheduled programming. Thanks!

Adventures In Bookland

This is a picture of the work Skyla and I did on Saturday night at the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association annual trade show. As I mentioned in the previous post, she came along to be my helper, and she performed her jobs–helping me navigate through Tacoma, opening books to the signing page, keeping the signing table organized–admirably. We met booksellers from all over the Pacific Northwest, every one of them kind, encouraging and interested.

But the high point for me came when people started asking Skyla to sign the books. Watching her carefully write her name and proudly hand a book to someone will be a lasting memory. Almost as good as the first salmon she boated on her own this summer.
