Yesterday was the release date for my latest novel, Green Powell's | Amazon ]. Had a lot of fun with the virtual release party online. You guys are terrific!

K— and I went by Powell's on Burnside so I could sign stock.

Look! Faced!

I also signed stock at the Burnside store. And Friday night at 7 pm, I'll be at the Powell's Cedar Hills store to do a reading. Dinner to precede at the Cedar Hill's McMenamin's from 5 to 6:30 if you're in the neighborhood, but do come to the reading if you can.

Some new Green links below, including a hilarious and insightful review from io9.com and an excerpt running at Tor.com.

Interesting discussion in the comments on the SF Signal review of Green

Like the guest blog at Tor.com along with the short story at Fantasy Magazine.

Thanks for posting the links because I somehow overlooked the Tor.com Green excerpt.

Does that shelf have the word "APOCALYPTIC" written on it in sharpie? That's a bookstore many of us could really get into. Nice!

I know I've already mentioned I bought Green Friday when I surprisingly found on the shelf already. Weird this is I didn't start reading it until Tuesday. I wonder if my subconscious wouldn't let me start reading before the official release date? I'm really enjoying it.

I look forward to the reading Friday night.
