E and I traveled to Seattle last week and man, that's a city I could see myself living in someday if I decide I want to trade the East Coast for the West.

Next, we stumbled into a little bookstore, where I found this awesome "genre":
Oh! And I got to read my work for the first time on the West Coast at this amazing little coffee shop:

So . . . Seattle. We got along just fine.
Fiction, poetry, and all that good stuff . . .
