In case you missed it.... the Messages and Bottles reading at Palate in Wilmington, NC on May 29th was KILLER! I had the lucky, lucky opportunity to read with Taylor Brown (In the Season of Blood and Gold), Schuler Benson (The Poor Man's Guide to an Affordable, Painless Suicide) and Beth Gilstrap (I am Barbarella). The atmosphere was jiving, the crowd was amped and the readings were captivating and entertaining. All in all, I'd say it was a pretty perfect night and I hope to meet up with these fine writing folks and do it all again sometime. Cheers!
