I managed to sneak away from winter here in Atlanta and take a trip down to Port St. Lucie Florida where I found a little bit of summer and some great conversation at Poetic Justice Books and Arts. I had a great time talking about Whistlestop and meeting some great people. The whole place is like a reader's dream cave. There are comfy chairs, walls full of books and art, and conversations with people who know and love reading poetry, fiction, and everything else. (By the way, if you haven't read Things Get Weird in Whistlestop yet...why not? Mr. Wilkerson is waiting in the alley by Joe's Diner to meet you. Maybe I can get him to go with me on the next adventure. )
Not only did I have a great conversation about the book, I managed to do a little shopping too. I have a whole stack of new reading material to tide me over to the new year. There will be reviews of some of the titles in the Poetic Justice Press lineup forthcoming! In the meantime, you can check what they have for yourself here.
As an added surprise, I met Dominic Albanese, who might fit in very well in Whistlestop. Jeff Weddle did a great interview with him for Sacred Chickens...if you haven't read it yet click here.
