I know you’re thinking sniplits are just itsy bitsy snips — but they’re not. Sniplits is an interesting new place to go where you can buy and download the audio versions of a whole bunch of different stories. It’s cheaper than iTunes. And yes, I do have a story there if you’d like to check it out, “Beautiful, Faithful Asian Ladies Seek Friendship/Marriage.” Which has nothing at all to do with this photo, I swear.

Goodbye Intermediate Fictioners!

Live long, write well . . .

The Monti

Saturday, April 12th, 2008

Check this out. At 7 on Tuesday, April 22nd I’m doing something they’re calling The Monti. What it amounts to is an evening of a few people getting up on a stage (I’m assuming there’s some sort of stage) and telling a story.

On the face of it this might appear to be right up my alley, since I tell stories on a stage all the time. But this is different. I’m not reading. There are no notes. And the stories are supposed to be true. In other words, I am very nervous. I rarely put myself into a situation where I can so easily crash and burn, and because I might crash and burn I decided to do it.

At this writing, ten days out, I have no idea what I’m going to say. If anything. Maybe I’ll do that post-modern Mute Man piece I’ve been working on. For the locals, it’s at Spice Street down at University Mall. Come. A bunch of very talented storytellers will be there, and if I fail it will only make everybody else look better.

Elynora, finally on the shelves . . .

. . . in Italy, at a trade show. Being read by an actual Italian. Sneaking slowly into the world.
