The Writers Junction, the groovy writing space where I toil away, is holding its Second Summer Literary Marathon this Friday. Unlike last time, it's not a 24-hour marathon but it's still impressive and entertaining. And I will be appearing at 7:50 p.m. to read a brief section from my mysterious and long-in-the-works second novel. Here is the official write up, and the modest admission goes to a good cause, The Young Storytellers Foundation. Hope to see you on Friday evening! (For you Facebook types, go here.)
