Eighteen years ago I began a journey. It started with a short, weird little story about an angry man with a pumpkin on his head and it became the seed for what would eventually become my first and perhaps only novel. This novel has been with me for a long time. From that short story it grew to a second, then a third, then a final story. This novel was never intended to be as such, but I fell in love with the cantankerous old man in it, and I fell in love with the world where he lived, bleak as it can be at times. A SHADOW OVER EVER truly is one of the things I am very proud of because it took a long time to get it out, to get it to the world, but it was worth it.
On Friday, August 10th I am celebrating the release of my novel by having a release party with my dear friend Charles Shaver, who will also be releasing books that night. This is my way to celebrate not just this book, but all of the books, and the long journey it took to get them out. I will have my art and books on display and for sale but more than that I will have stories and art dating back to when I was still just a kid in the ’80s and ‘90s so we can see the weird little path that this and all my stories took.
This night isn’t about me, about my book, but about you, all of you. Because without the friendship and encouragement of all of you there would be no art, no stories, and certainly no books.
There will be snacks, and music, and lots of awesome on hand on August 10th from 6 – 9pm right downtown in Flint at 625 S. Saginaw St., and I really hope you can make it.
