10/8/15 5pm: Buffalo Street Books @ Ithaca, NY

Cue the Daughtry song!

Well I’m going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.

Ithaca was my home for three wonderful years.  Not four, because the first year was really, really terrible (freshman fifteen, freshman blues, etc.).  The second was a big improvement (thank you, Phi Kappa Tau), and the third and the fourth were bliss.  So how lucky am I that I get to go home again.  Please join me at Buffalo Street Books (DeWitt Mall [Next to Greenstar Oasis], Ithaca NY, 14850) this Thursday at 5pm.  I love you, Ithaca!


Something Good in Goodreads

I came across a review of Love Love in Goodreads…and it’s very kind and thoughtful.  The writer is a guy named Larry who not only read my novel but was inspired enough to write something about it.  He’s got a blog and has reviewed many other books and movies (his review of Inside Out is so closely aligned with my own view that I almost feel like I wrote it!), so check it out.

Love Love Book Tour, October 2015

The tour continues this month, where I return to my alma mater, fly to Austin for the Texas Book Festival, spend an evening in the Big Apple, and conduct a workshop in Princeton (where parts of the book are set!).  Note: I was going to wrap in the Wells College reading into my Cornell visit, but that’s been rescheduled for the spring.  So the tour will extend into 2016!
