May 25th, 2010



My good friend Swati Avasthi is in town on a rare visit to promote her amazing first novel Split!

(Not to be confused with my good friend Stefan Petrucha, who also has a novel out this year called Split. The word of 2010, I guess.)

Swati will be signing copies tonight at Books of Wonder from 6pm - 8pm! Come join me as I cheer her on!

Here's a photo of my friend Swati Avasthi signing a copy of her debut YA novel Split for me at Books of Wonder tonight. She also pointed out that I'm thanked in the acknowledgments for all my support when she was just starting out. I'm touched!

The wacky BEA adventures will continue tomorrow evening, when I meet up with ChiZine Publications editor/publisher Brett Alexander Savory (jack_yoniga to his friends) and fellow CZP author Daniel A. Rabuzzi (The Choir Boats) for some chitchat over suds downtown.
