It's Litquake week!

Check out my review of James Warner's novel All Her Father's Guns up on HTMLGiant. This is the third piece I've done for them, probably the most difficult and rewarding one to write.

Litquake is rocking the town this week. A couple of friends have been asking me for event recommendations, so I thought I'd post a few cool upcoming events below. Barely Published event on Saturday night was a blast; two fellow SFWW regulars Salvatore Zoida and Ken Yee made 200-something people laugh, yay!
