It takes infinitely more work to launch a book in 2013 than it did in 1998, last time I had a book come out. Or is it that I’m determined to be more integrally involved this time, the way the poet Denise Levertov said “the earth worm” “aerates/ the ground of his living”?
It’s been fun, draining, exciting, exhausting. Here are some pictures and other bits from the publication fray:
Community muckety-mucks, and my friends!
Reading at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art.
Back at QEJ, reading. It was a fun night! 🙂
Btw, if you’re free, come out to see me next Tuesday, November 26 in NYC at Literary Mischief, an event where I’ll be reading with sex writer Rachel Kramer Bussel, author of The Big Book of Orgasms. There will be door prizes.
