Back in October 2013, I read in the Waterbear Reading Series at One More Page Books. My story, “The Bloated Woman”, had just been republished in Best Gay Stories 2013 and I was lucky enough for the curator, An Tran, to ask me to participate. Of course, I was a pulsing ball of anxiety the entire time. (I think I had to pee, like, four times before I read!) But it was a great night, all the readers were amazing and I also got to show off my awesome new Star Wars t-shirt.
Strange to think that a year-and-a-half later, I’ll be reading solo! Egads.
