At This Moment and Trent Jackson

Stopped by Trent Jackson's reading and signing at Matais Books on Saturday evening. Arrived like 20 minutes late, thanks to the jacked-up directions on yahoo maps. Ay!

Anyway, I arrived in time for discussion, questions and answers, and then the most unexpected thing. Trent blurbed ME during his reading. I was happy for that, not expecting it, because I know writers like their events to be mainly about them.

Bought a copy of Trent's book, At This Moment, got it signed, and afterwards, talked for like 20 minutes on various topics of the writing life. He's even got a
blog now, so check it out when you get a chance.

A very nice event. Nice crowd at Matais -- I mean, you could feel the love and support for each other and for black books. Very cool. Can't wait to start reading his book. Probably April. After I finish up my second book at the end of the month.

I thought about walking down to Matais to see Trent in action again but I caught up on some much needed sleep.
