A quick update:
Things We Set On Fire was released last December and sold over 100,000 copies in the first six months. It has already garnered 1000+ reviews on amazon, and the ALS community has embraced the work for the storyline that touches on that cruel disease. For all of this I am extremely grateful. Thank you everyone who has taken the time to read the novel. I appreciate your support as well as the time so many of you have taken to write me with your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from you.
I have a brand new novel coming out next summer called Olivay, and will post details about it very soon. In the meantime I’m busy writing and teaching Novel Writing at UCLA’s Writing Extension Program and am also the co-director of the Black Forest Writing Seminar at the University of Freiburg in Germany. I’m very excited to announce that next summer’s guest faculty at the BFWS will be Ron Carlson and Roxane Gay.
More soon. Until then, be well and write well—
