I did the thing!

The author in the act of biking uphill in the rain.

It’s finally out. Preorders should arrive in the mail any day now, and you will start to see it in bookshops around town. Or you can order it online from UW Press.

Last night was surreal. Thank you to everyone who packed the reading room at Elliott Bay Book Company. It was a huge relief to finally get to tell you all some of these stories that have been stuck inside my head and my computer since I started writing this thing in 2019.

My next scheduled event is 6 p.m. September 22 at Metier Racing & Coffee. Nook & Cranny Books will be hosting a reading and signing. I’ll try to have some more throughout the fall and winter, too, so stay tuned.

      Hmm. Hopefully that changes soon. No idea how their distribution stuff works. Maybe they update the date once they have books in stock? Keep me in the loop.

    Rain is just water, and hills are just exercise. Ain’t no big thing. Can I get a signed copy?

      Oops, I should have scrolled down – I’ll see you on the 22nd!
