I Got Published, like, in a book!

Posted on January 30, 2013. Filed under: Books, writing | Tags: , , |

I told this little story a few years ago at a show called “Sucker for Love.” It’s an annual event that I think has run for four or five years. They decided to publish some of the best stories from the past years in a compilation. I am so excited to be a part of this project!

The book will be released on Amazon and Barnes & Noble by February 14th – yes, in time for everybody’s favorite holiday – but you can pre-order the book now, at a reduced rate, from the publisher’s website. Check it out and buy it for the low, low price of just $10 here.

Just a little note on the writing process. My story in the book, “The Game,” was originally written to be performed as spoken word. In other words, it was written for people to listen to. I, and the other authors, had to adapt our stories to fit the written format, filling in details, translating verbal, sarcastic, or audible clues into words on a page, and, to a degree, fleshing out our otherwise brief stories to make a more complete version. It was an interesting challenge and I hope to be asked to do it again someday.
