Hangin’ with Jack Daniels’ Daddy


Wha–? Huh?

This has very little to do with my fiction. Directly, anyway, so please pardon the slight burp in our regularly scheduled outtakes and other fictional fun.

But I got to hang out with the notorious and fun JA Konrath AND the way cool and lovely Rebecca Drake last night, as Konrath was in town, intending to visit as many bookstores in and around Pittsburgh as he could.

Good beer, better cheesecake, and amazing conversation that swirled among an amazing and at times impossible variety of topics. I learned much. I intend to learn even more.

It’s back to work on the rewrite of Trevor’s Song for me today, but an evening spent among published and soon-to-be-published folk was amazingly good for my soul.

We’ll return to Riverview shortly — wait until you see the fun I’ve got planned — but in the meantime, thanks to Joe and Rebecca. Hope we can do it again soon.

And if you’re still curious about the Jack Daniels reference, you clearly need to pick up Joe’s books. Feel free to follow the link in my sidebar to Joe’s blog, where he’s been keeping a record of the stores he’s visited and left autographed copies behind for your buying and collecting pleasure.

Happy reading!

    Okay, I’ll mark the books for Anth and Ace and ship the box out in a day or two. BR/BR/Lumoeoti — the art of tea drinking in a lighted room?

    How cool is that! I love the Jack Daniels books. And I love Konrath’s blog, too. Have you read his short stories, too? Pretty awesome!
