Early 2014 news

A few items of news:

- I have a new book coming out in November. It's a short story collection called See You in Paradise, and will be published in the US by Graywolf, and simultaneously in the UK by Serpent's Tail, who put out a wonderful edition of Familiar last fall. It is culled from all of the non-flash-length short fiction I've produced over the past fifteen years. The stories that didn't make the cut (partly for style, rather than quality) will eventually be available to subscribers of The Byliner.

- Once again, I'll be teaching a novel workshop at this year's Colgate Writers' Conference in Hamilton, NY. Please consider attending! CWC is friendly, intimate, and a lot of fun. The dates are June 15 to 21.

- I've been posting more on the blog section of this website, and have renamed the blog Literambivalence. I am mostly doing "lifestyle" reviews that are really short personal essays. I suppose I am trying to repurpose the lifestyle-blog concept as a quasi-literary form. Hope you like it.

- A new novel is in the works, I think.
