Having returned from foreign climes, all the way down south, I can give you this report, Gentle Reader. The Brothers K
's book launch was a massive success. In the immortal words of Eytan himself (or something like), they shook the Jewish tree and much fruit landed.
The Barnes & Nobel events staff said it was the biggest reading they had yet hosted. There was food, there was drink, there was Brothers K bickering, what more could one want?
This is what I wore...
Press was in residence and milling about, so I am sure there will be photos of the event to follow. If you haven't yet, check out the Brothers K's high concept sci-fi thriller The Unincorporated Man.
I also got to meet my lovely model, Donna, who graces the cover of soulless.
She was absolutely delightful, but (and I'm sure she gets the this a lot, given her amazing photographic presence) smaller than I was expecting. She gifted me with the coolest bee steampunk pendent. We met up at a gay boy karaoke bar, because, well, why not?
In addition, the website has undergone some small overhaul, check it out

Checked out It's a Wrap
while I was down in LA. Thus I discovered major flaw in my plans for world domination = most actresses are apparently my size. Luckily, I don't live anywhere near LA, so I can't spend my entire advance at this particular shop - because I sure was tempted. As it was, I consider it quite the noble sacrifice on my part that I escaped with only a beautiful blood red velvet 1940's inspired wrap blazer.
