A few things…

March 23, 2009

Will be doing writer’s audio commentary for DVD extras of The Watermelon, out this summer in a package deal from Celebrity Video Distribution.

Will be shooting sort doc in Tijuana early April.

May be writing a book on micro blogging for Polity, a great academic publisher in the UK.

Got copy ed’s notes for my story, “The Barbing Wrecking Yard,” to be in the Morbid Curiosity anthology from Scribner this Fall.

Turned in some book reviews for Forum: Qualitative Social Research.

Am reviewing William T. Vollmann’s IMPERIAL (1300 pages!) for American Book Review.

My screenplay adapt of Frank Norris’ McTEAGUE, that I call THE GOLD TOOTH, is in competition at the Beverly Hills Film Festival next month.

Still behind on deadlines for various books — when am I not?
