Dangerous Minds, Wicked Clowns, and Holiday Shopping!

Been a minute since I've had a chance to update you on the latest.

In good company at Pages Bookshop in North Rosedale Park, Detroit
To start, thank you to everyone who has had made it out to the book events. It's been great meeting you, chatting with fans & old friends about the book and the magazines that inspired it. The most fun I can have as the author of this book is seeking the excitement and smiles on your face as you pick up your copy. It's been great - THANK YOU!

Tricky Thinking! 

Over the past few weeks there have been some great developments happening. The great website Dangerous Minds wrote about the book. This is a great honor because they do great things, and I've always been a big fan of Disinformation - the original publication/site that Richard Metzger started before he went on to do Dangerous Minds.

Pass the Faygo, Ninja! 

Halloween this year including a stop at Hallowicked - the annual Insane Clown Posse event in Detroit. Violent J was kind enough to interview with me for the book. So, I wanted to hand deliver copies to the clowns. Thanks to their PR department over at Psychopathic Records, I had the chance to check out Hallowicked at the State Theater (I still can't call it that other name) and then the after party at St. Andrew's Hall where the meeting - and this photo - took place.

Shaggy 2 Dope & Violent J meet your humble author at Hallowicked!
As Violent J said best in the interview, "Everybody cool read Orbit first. They were the funny, cool, young, crazy place to be."
