Recaps: Great American Diner, Norwescon

GREAT AMERICAN DINER

This swanky West Seattle diner has an open mic hosted by musician and friend Alan Sobel, and this happened to be along my way to Norwescon. I took a spot on the mic for a short book reading, making this the first time I’ve played to a diner (though Cafe Racer for Two-Hour Transport is close). To hardly any interruption and for a sale, it was a fine stop.

Excellent discussions and fabulous times. It is so satisfying being a creative intellectual playtime wonderland host & participant. Many topics enjoyably covered, and plenty of new interest in Bones of Starlight! Welcome. Picture details in captions.

These two great events eluded mention on this website at the time of their occurrence: Resonate 1/31 Oakland, where I sold books at a mini-table for this party promoting the feminine in electronic music culture, and Two-Hour Transport 3/27 Seattle, where I delivered a featured book reading to the seasoned writers’ gathering & open mic.

Above, I can be seen in profile to the right of the brightly lit corner of art to the upper right of the crowd, discussing my books with someone during Naughty Princess‘ excellent set. Following are a few other highlights:

While I’m late mentioning this event, I’m doing so just in time to let you know about Resonate’s next workshop for women making music:

I read from Abyss Surrounding as a featured author, along with Patrick Hurley, for my second participation in this great group of Seattle-area sci-fi writers and appreciators! I also moved a small house that day, and wore my dirt boots to the reading.
