I’LL BE IN MIAMI, BITCH!
Yes, I’m visiting sunny, holy-shit-it’s-a-category-5 South Florida from sunny, shakin’-and-quakin’ So. Cali.
(Listen to my new theme song)
I’ll be in town November 11-16th
Wednesday through Monday
On Friday, the Street Fair for the 26th Annual Miami Book Fair gets under way. The highlight of the Street Fair is the Festival of Authors with more than 350 authors reading and discussing their work.
If you want to connect, call me on the cell (949-874-8558). I’ll be here. Of course, I plan to be wandering around accosting authors who are trapped in their booths and can’t escape my questions: What’s the best Cuban restaurant in Miami? What writing groups are farthest away from places where I may be attacked by tiny men in silk shirts and gold chains gators? Where can I learn to salsa dance and play the conga drums? And where is the best place to live so I don’t get kidnapped by Columbian druglords and sold into sex slavery manual labor.
Join me for the adventure!
