Quick monthly update in crammed month
The countdown is on.
A final countdown? No. Nothing that dramatic.
It's the countdown to the release of a new novella, titled Of Snow Forts and Santa. Available to purchase in paperback or to download on November 15, 2019.
Keep an eye on this website, my Amazon author page, and various social media channels for updates, pricing, and more info about the book. (Including a synopsis, which I am still putting the final touches on.)
It's been a busy month of rewrites and editing so the monthly update/newsletter is a little light -- and a few days late -- as we jump into October. I've also been working on finishing a draft of my most recent full-length play, Half Past Midnight. Needless to say, there has been a lot of time spent in front of a computer and at a desk, throwing words on a page to find out what sticks.
Throw in a bit of dramaturgy work for Alley Repertory Theater and there's been plenty to do to keep me out of trouble.
I'll be back with more updates soon. I'll leave you with this because it's October and it's tradition:
Thanks for stopping by.
Be bold. Be kind.
AROUND THE TREASURE VALLEY IN OCTOBER
-The 2019/20 season at Alley Repertory Theater kicks off with Tony nominated Bernhardt/Hamlet by Theresa Rebeck. A pay-what-you-want preview is on October 10 and opening night is October 11. The play runs thru October 20 at Visual Arts Collective.
-Speaking of Alley Rep, on October 25 they will be hosting their first fall fundraiser. Join them in a night of celebration with a silent and live auction, plus the performance of selected scenes from past and upcoming shows.
-If you're on the lookout for more theater, Boise Contemporary Theater opens The Wolves by Sarah DeLappe on October 16. And HomeGrown Theatre gives audiences the (8th Annual) Horrific Puppet Affair: Ghost Stories, opening October 17 at the Gem Center for the Arts.
-The Old Idaho Penitentiary is a great place to visit year-round, but October things tend to get spookier. They have a whole list of events, plus you should give a listen to the Old Pen podcast, Behind Gray Walls.
-Speaking of podcasts, if you like Welcome to Night Vale, you should give AM 1066 a listen. Plus, one of the writers/actors on this podcast, Sam Lounsbury, is from the area. So it's like Treasure Valley adjacent so you should take a listen.
