17 May, I made my debut as an author, reading at Peri’s, one of the great dive bars of Marin.
The official title of the event was “First Draught: Pints & Prose.” It was organized by the Tuesday Night Writers.
In my allotted five minutes of open mic, I acknowledged the featured reader, Molly Giles, whom I’d published a couple of times (and whose writers’ group had developed Amy Tan), introduced my publisher, IF SF Publishing editorial director Brooks Roddan, who took the photo below, and read the first section of the first chapter, Editors Anonymous.
