Or at very least, semi-locals. If you live on the Central Coast of California, I hope you'll join me for a special event. It's a reading from, and celebration of, Jumpstart the World, my new young adult novel with a transgender theme. And I've teamed up with the local transgender support group Tranz Central Coast for this event. The idea is to raise consciousness for trans acceptance and money for TCC.
Copies of the book will be for sale, of course, all proceeds to benefit TCC. And I'll be reading from the book, talking and answering questions about it, and signing copies.
But there's more. I'll be giving away sets of two to five signed first editions of my books Funerals for Horses, Earthquake Weather, Electric God, Walter's Purple Heart and Love in the Present Tense to anyone who donates to TCC. For a $10 donation, I'll give two of these books, up to a set of all five for larger donations.
But that's not all either. A full set of 14 signed first editions of my books will be raffled off. And an auction will be held for this amazing metal art pelican weather vane, contributed by Santa Cruz artist Ginger Bell.
Saturday, November 13 · 3:00pm - 5:00pm
Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall
2074 Parker Street, San Luis Obispo, CA
Hope to see you there!
Monday (Nov 8th) at 4:00 p.m. Pacific I'll be live on KVEC talk radio with host Dave Congalton and my friend Doug. We'll be discussing the event I described above. Locals can tune in at 920 on the AM dial, but no matter where you live you can go to THE KVEC WEBSITE and click "on air" to listen live, or find it in "podcasts" after the fact.
