Rough Magick Anthology Reading

It’s not an accident that Jessa Marie Mendez and I are publishing Rough Magick, an e-book anthology about the darker aspects of love and sex, in late October/early November. The book is definitely a Scorpio! Please join Denise Hamilton, Amanda Yates Garcia, Mary Pauline Lowry, Laura Lee Bahr, Tracy DeBrincat, Sarah Herrington, Logan Brendt, Manuel Chavarria and me on November 13th at 7 pm for a very special group reading from Rough Magick (dangerous angel press) at Stories, Echo Park. Adam Greenberg will also be there, reading from My Best Friend, Hildegard (dangerous angel press).

You can order Rough Magick online in about a week.

Acclaimed Los Angeles mystery writer, Denise Hamilton, and I will be holding a one day writing workshop on January 9th from 1-4 in Culver City. If you haven’t worked with Denise before, this is your chance! She’s a phenomenal and inspiring instructor and a story structure whisperer.

I will also be teaching an in person class, Sundays starting January 17th 1-4 for 10 weeks. The cost is also $500 and we will be reading ten of your pages a week and critiquing them as a group.
