Thanks to Pig City Books, Goose and the Monkey Brew House, and all the readers who came to learn about On the Way to Birdland this past weekend. Local, independent bookstore owner, Sedley Abercrombie, did a marvelous job of moderating a discussion that delved into my writing life, my processes, my new young adult novel, and many connections to American jazz and legendary saxophonist, John Coltrane.
If you were unable to attend or you’re viewing this post from somewhere far away from Lexington, NC, don’t worry! The folks at Pig City Books recorded our conversation and you can view it below. I hope you enjoy!
On a final note, it was a thrill to sign books for eager readers and to answer all of their questions about a novel I spent the vast majority of the past three years painstakingly researching, creating, drafting, and agonizing over. I hope you’ll have a chance to pick up a copy from your own local, independent bookstore. If you do, I’d love to have a chance to catch up on your feedback if you feel moved to leave an honest review on Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes & Noble, or anywhere else you think it might serve your fellow reader. Cheers, and happy reading!
