My new job has kept me really busy. I haven’t gone out as much or produced as many shows I have in the past, and I think that’s because my professional life has been challenging in a good way. It’s been a long time that I’ve been this challenged and I needed it.
I’m still writing though. I’m currently working on a new novel titled A Farewell to Arms With a Chainsaw, which you can see the drafts in progress on my Instagram feed. Eventually, I’ll produce my next Saturday Night Special. I just need to regain focus to those aspects of my life I’ve let lapse.
I’ve had a lot of stuff come out over the last few months, so I’m going to only focus on one in particular.
White Knuckle Chapbooks put out an e-chapbook of 10 of my ribcage poems. I remixed these in a prose format. Click here to read it.
I’ll be in Tampa next week for AWP and I’ll be part of a panel for the first time. The information is below if you happen to be doing that kind of a thing.
I had a great conversation with John King at The Drunken Odyssey about Jesus Christ, Boy Detective. You can check that out in full over here.
Cahoodaloodaling included my e-chapbook Neil in their latest issue that reviews e-chapbooks that have come out over the last year or so. Check out all of these excellent free reads and reviews over here.
Here’s my upcoming appearances for August:
- August 4 – I’m hosting Spilled Milk Literary Open Mic. More details can be found over here.

Fun fact: my St. Pete book release for my first collection of poetry was also held at Studio@620. It’s a lovely space to read at and I’m excited to be reading from Jesus Christ, Boy Detective. More details about this show can be found here.
