The Rhode Island Calamari Festival
I'm pleased to announce I will appear at the Rhode Island Calamari Festival in Narragansett this Saturday with 29 others representing the Association of Rhode Island Authors (ARIA). I've been anxious to get going and took this spot from someone on very short notice. I'll try to make a tablecloth cover and some make shift signs to advertise the books. I'm low on stock, but I'm giving it a go to start the process of making my way in the New England market.
I'll take pictures and will post live broadcasts from the event. I've never been as it's only the 3rd annual and I was out of Rhode Island for many years living in the desert.
I'll post updates about times and other things on Friday night - but the poster gives general information. One thing missing - the admission price is $10, with kids under 12 years of age free.
Time to dust off my book pitches and get to some selling!

the last three days of Vegas
The end of time keeps coming at us faster it seems and suddenly there are only three days left in Vegas (and it's really more like 2 1/2). Are there a lot of things to get done? More than we can possible accomplish in these hours? Whelp, we'll do what we can do and not stress too much about the rest.
It's only fitting that I simply don't have time to pause and reflect on any of my Vegas experience before leaving. This city can feel like a blurred rush of life, coming at you in an endless stream of promised party. It's a carnival, an endless vacation. But it's not. Just another spot on the map on this object named earth.
What will I think of my 8+ years in Vegas after I'm gone from here? I can't tell you. Unlike my last cross-country move from Providence area to Vegas - I don't feel anything for this city. It's empty and doesn't allow attachments. Most of the people here are in transition, fleeting faces in the cosmic meld of gambling, drinking, and whatever else it is that people do here (I never figured that out).
I came for a reason I can't quite remember, met my wife, and started a family. For that, I'll always have a spot for Vegas.
Beyond that, I can't even tell you what the hell happened here the last 8+ years.
It's true. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
Soon, it's a road trip. See you in the photos of America.
