Incoming and upcoming...

Visit my Myspace page and watch me read a seven-minute snippet of "Swim," one of the short stories in THE GUY NOT TAKEN.

Better yet, watch the ad for the book, starring Susan Bott, aka the Swiffer Lady!

On Thursday, September 14 at 1 p.m. I'm doing an online chat with Jane Magazine. Ask me anything!

That night, I'm reading from THE GUY NOT TAKEN at the Columbus Circle Borders at 7 p.m.. The reading just might be filmed for TV, so wear something cute. And then, like me, you can get letters from incarcerated gentlemen telling you how much they liked what you had to say and asking if whether, the next time you're on TV, you could maybe try something a little more low-cut.

Next up: on September 20th, I'll be joining LitPac for a reading at the Khyber in Philadelphia at 7 p.m., along with Buzz Bissinger, Elise Juska, Duncan "Atrios" Black, Ken Kalfus, and Curtis Sittenfeld.

The event will benefit Lois Murphy's Congressional campaign. Tickets are $20 and you can buy them here.

Finally, on Friday, September 29th I'll be at Head House Books in Philadelphia at 7 p.m. to read from THE GUY NOT TAKEN.

Hope to see you in NYC or Philly!
