Part of a Country Song Overheard in a Parallel Universe*
Well they say there’s no beer in heaven
That don’t sound like the place for me
For what good’s paradise
if there ain’t no ice-
cold beer to wash down eternity
Sometimes I feel like I’m not writing enough when I’m not writing poems. But then I remember I write one-to-two verse songs everyday. I’m

comiXology Summer Reading List Day 5: Werewolves of Montpellier
Sven, a semi-aimless Scandinavian artist who has ended up in Montpellier, France on a futile romantic pursuit, enjoys nocturnal raids into other people’s homes, disguised as a werewolf. The way he figures it, the disguise will give him an extra few moments’ advantage vis-à-vis any startled home owner if things get ugly… but he hasn’t taken into account the existence of a society of real Montpellier-based werewolves who do not take kindly to this new pretender. So while Sven spends his days playing chess and poker with his friends, sketching his way through his picturesque chosen hometown, and coping with romantic dilemmas — both his and those of his best friend, the Breakfast-at-Tiffany’s-obsessed Audrey, who has girl troubles of her own — little does he realize that a genuine threat to his life, and for that matter his humanity, is closing in on him.

Today is the release date for the paperback of In the House upon the Dirt between the Lake and the Woods, and by chance I’m in Ann Arbor again, where I used to live and where I read at Nicola’s Books to launch the novel last June. Today, I stopped in at Ann Arbor’s other great store Literati to sign their stock and thank them for their support as well, because no one’s been better to me than indie bookstores, and the Ann Arbor stores—and Snowbound Books, in my current hometown of Marquette—have been among the best.
It’s been an incredible year for me and for the book, and I just want to quickly say thank you to all the booksellers and readers and reviewers who made the book a bigger success than I could have ever asked for. I’ve done about fifty readings and signings in the past year in support of the book, and I’d like to thank again all the organizers who have had me to their stores and readings series and universities. Above all I’m indebted to the good people at Soho, especially my editor Mark Doten and my publisher Bronwen Hruska, plus the incredible marketing and publicity team of Paul Oliver,Meredith Barnes, Rudy Martinez, and Amara Hoshijo, who did so much for the book and made my travel on tour last summer so enjoyable. Working with them has been better than I could have ever hoped, and I’m so glad to be staying with them for the foreseeable future.
I feel like the luckiest writer around, but I know that “luck” here is just a synonym for “having the support of great people.” Thanks again to all of you who read In the House, spread the word, or did anything else to help it reach its readers this past year. And if you’ve been waiting for the paperback, now’s your chance! Indie booksellers have been so good to me and this book, and I hope you’ll support them by buying the book from your own local store.
