On Oct 8, 2013, Tulsa was Doomed.

Nine hundred people turned out for the Doomed Bedtime Stories event at the Tulsa Library.

This was after the Spreecast that Chuck and I did to promote the Doomed Bedtime Stories tour.  You can watch it here.

Bellingham, WA, Bedtime Stories

The devil is in the details

This is at our Bellingham Bedtime Stories event (sponsored by the fabulous Village Books).  Chuck Palahniuk, Monica Drake, Tyler Hughes, brought the awesome, and the glow-y beach balls.  All those little red triangles are devil horns.  We gave away 200 hundred of them.  The next day we were driving through town and saw a homeless man wearing a pair.

I don't think they actually read my books.

My BFFs Chuck Palahniuk and Lidia Yuknavitch and I do an event we call "Bedtime Stories for Grown-ups."  (Monica Drake has also performed with us, along Tyler Hughs and Ralph Huntley.)  We've done three of these shows so far, and everyone has sold out.  Basically we do everything you're not supposed to do at a book event.  We drink, we wear PJs, we read terribly inappropriate stories, we give a ton of stuff away (in Bellingham, we gave out LED devil horns, AND glow-in-the-dark beachballs).  In other words, it's a book rave.  If you get a chance to come to one, do not miss it. It's epic.  And because we always include a book in the price of admission, we bring an influx of cash to a local independent bookstore.  Win, win.  

Did I mention there's drinking?
