This benefit for the Australia Wildfire Fund brought together tons of talent from around the Salish Sea, from Bellingham to Seattle and beyond; and this island dweller, with an off-print edition signed novel from Bones of Starlight for the silent auction. Only-Book status! This event raised $5000 with all the generous performance and art donations, and was an absolute blast.

I recently had the happy occasion of encountering someone who attended a previous workshop I held at Cascadia Festival in June 2017, namely Mind Maps & Synaesthetic Processes. A jeweler, he let me know he’s utilized some of the methods we exercised. It makes me really glad to know that someone who does something very different than I do can apply things I’ve shared!
Here are photos (by Omar Lopez) from the Live Muse Writing session I held beforehand, where we sited ourselves in different places near various activities to interact with our writing.
Come to Bellingham’s Alternative Library at 4pm on Sunday, November 12 for a unique opportunity to experience a science fiction reading over environmental art film in the presence of live painting, with tea and pot luck snacks.

Chapter-plate hardcover of book 1, Fire On All Sides on the New Fiction rack up front at the San Juan Island Public Library in the town of Friday Harbor. Bottom shelf facing, third from left. Sharing uptime with Assassin’s Fate & The Book of Joan, both authors whom I have met. Thanks, town of long residence where I live! I hope people will enjoy it and feel free to tell me how they liked it.
(Signed) Paperback volumes of Fire On All Sides are now available for sale at the Alternative Library bookstore in Bellingham, WA. As of picture, far right upper, that’s left corner shelf by the doorway – sharing space with A Language Older Than Words & Promethea, something near and something dear.
I joined in for the equinox Open Stage last night at the Alternative Library in Bellingham WA, reading some of the Arkuda/Soleil/library storylines from Fire On All Sides. It was a treat to finally go this wonderful place, which opened about a year ago. On stage were poets, strings, pianists, originals, covers, melons, and me, in muck boots and still wearing my coat.
