Thank You Austin, You Rock!

Thank You Austin, You Rock!

Austin, this isn’t really goodbye, it’s more of a see you later, my old friend. I’ll be back. Sure, I don’t know when, or how, but those things are inconsequential. We’ll figure out the details at a later date. For now, I’ll be hitting the pavement, spinning my wheels, and steering the RV westward…or should I say zigzagging toward the West Coast. All points in between are acceptable stopping points because, what’s stopping me from stopping anywhere I’d like to stop? Unstoppable madness, if you ask me. Great big thanks to all my friends in Austin. What a goodbye party at the Whip In! Most of it is a bit of a blur. People just kept buying me pints of beers, and it’s really difficult for me to say no to a pint of beer, whatever the beer might be, whomever might be buying me said pint of beer…so there were times on Tuesday evening where I had as many as three pints of beer in front of me…like I said, they kept appearing, and I kept trying to empty them…it was like a dream come true: The Endless Fountain of Beer. There were so many cool beautiful wonderful amazing people. It was like a blur of goodness and happy people all over the place. I don’t know how many books I sold. I kept signing books, writing sloppy drunk messages of love on each one…several people have already contacted me since Tuesday evening to ask me to decipher my own handwriting. Turns out I actually enjoy signing book! My little books, Good Feeling, seven short stories, and, Beer...

My new book, Good Feeling, seven short stories, is now out and ready for your purchase. This is exciting! The Kindle edition will be free from Thursday 17th till Monday 21th of this month. The official release party takes place on Tuesday September 29th at The Whip In in south Austin from 7-9pm. I will read one or two pieces from the book, my friends The If Onlys will perform their incredible music, and my friend Andrew Hilbert, author of Death Thing will MC. Basically, this is going to be the biggest party in town. It’s at once my goodbye for now to Austin, my book release, and a fundraiser for my upcoming trip across the United States. I want to thank my good friend Brian Wootan for designing the cover. He painted an original oil painting that he worked on non-stop for two weeks straight, staying up till 2am and longer several nights in a row so that we could make our deadline, and so that the book would be available at the release party. Brian goes into his work usually around 8am, and then picks up his son from school around 3:30, then does all the family business of making diner, doing homework, feeding the dogs…so staying up till 2am to work on the cover of my book is a big freaking deal. I stay up till 2am in the morning on a regular basis as well, but I usually...
