This weekend I’m getting my second COVID shot. Kim and I – she’s my better half – went with the Moderna flavor sponsored, in part, by Dolly Parton.

I’ll also be appearing at The Book Fest this weekend. Complete details below. This will be my third appearance and each of the previous times I’ve had more than a thousand people sign up for this newsletter. And, unlike other stodgy events, I’ll have a glass of vodka or two and a hot mic. You don’t want to miss it.

On the good news front Hadithi Sambamba’s contact with Nerdanatix has been reactivated.

As many of you will remember, Nerdanatix was unable to secure a PPP loan and closed due to the pandemic last June. They have come up with some creative solutions, cobbled together investors, formalized their relationship with Valor Printing, and are already getting books, including ones I wrote, placed in brick and mortar stores.

Currently they are focusing on the American Southwest, since they’re based in Houston, but should be nationwide by the fall. They’re working on building a new website to reflect their new reality. I will share a link when it’s live.

Many of you have asked if I was going to be part of THE BOOKFEST again. The answer is a resounding YES!!! I will be joined by international, best selling, authors James Rollins, Danny Trejo, and many more. Not that either of them could pick me out of a one person lineup, but we will all be there.

Sat. April 17th – 6:00pm to 8:00pm CDT
