Just these past few days, there seems to have been a wee explosion of good stuff to be had and to be heard about, so I thought I'd round it all up here.
First up, there's something amazing, unique, exciting, fantastic, cool and swinging going on over At The Bijou. That swell dame ABSOLUTELY*KATE has charmed the incredibly prolific, insightful and super-cool Mr ROBERT J RANDISI and together they present the one, the only, THE RAT PACK REVUE! The Revue plays Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturday matinees, check it out, don't miss a thing, be there or be square. I'm absolutely thrilled to be in with a story - also playing are Eric Beetner, Paul Brazill, Kevin Michaels, Sean Patrick Reardon, Anthony Venutolo and the dame herself, Absolutely*Kate. And there's lots of stuff from Mr Randisi throughout - as he says himself, he's going to 'work the lounge' before he 'hits the main room'. All good stuff.
Next up, Paul Brazill - he gets everywhere, that man! No complaints about that, he's a class act, and to prove it, he's camping out over at Mulholland Books with some fine advice: TEN CRIME BOOKS TO HELP CURE YOUR HANGOVER, no less. See, a fine author and a generous humanitarian to boot.
I was reading an article the other day about becoming a Writer in Residence and how it can only be a good thing for all parties, when blow me down, but didn't Nick Quantrill, author of BROKEN DREAMS, go and land himself exactly such a gig! Now the newly ensconced Writer in Residence at Hull Kingston Rovers, and with a second book, THE LATE GREATS, due out later this year from Caffeine Nights Publishing, Nick is flying high. Great to see someone enjoying such well-deserved success!
