zine machine/queen & upcoming performances 

Standard

​​​

​Tonight I’m running off more mini zines and practicing for a reading tomorrow (2/27) at the Jade Lounge that is centered around the thing we idealize the shit out of but barely understand: Love. The good, the bad, the morbidly grotesque. We’ll cover it all. Music, stories, poetry and more. 


I’ll also be reading at Powell’s City of Books on March 20th as part of Smallpressapalooza.

Interview: CLASH Media Podcast

Standard

Had an astral daytime slumber party with Leza Cantoral for the CLASH Media podcast this weekend.
We talked about my novella, GLUE, mermaid hair/beards, Portland strip club aesthetics, biker culture, my dad’s role in said culture, zines, Ladybox Books and a lot of other stuff!

We had a great time chatting and probably could have gone on forever.
But we didn’t, you’re welcome ✨🖤✨

Reviews, lists & upcoming projects

Standard

I woke up with a brutal migraine and this song in my head.
I’m not sure if they are directly related.

 

Reviews and book photos (Glue Pix!) have been trickling in and they make my black heart swell. On top of the official reviews, some of my favorite feedback has come in the form of texts and phone calls from friends and family. Those don’t mean anything to y’all, but they mean the world to me.
This week Gabino Iglesias reviewed my new novella, Glue, at Vol. 1 Brooklyn in which he says so many wonderful things about my work including putting me alongside amazing writers like Joshua Jennifer Espinoza and Juliet Escoria. I died.

Gabino also rounded up some of his favorite Nasty Women in weird fiction for LitReactor and I made that list too.

There were eleven women chosen and of those eleven, six of them were either Ladybox Books authors or contributors to the box sets. I love these women and believe so wholly in their talent, I’m glad to see them being appropriately appreciated for all that they do.

I’ve opened submissions for a zine anthology project through Ladybox Books, in which I want to hear about songs we can’t listen to anymore -for whatever reason- bands our exes have ruined, and the loss of virginity. Each topic will be compiled into its own zine and I’m looking forward to the stories rolling in as much as I am looking forward to assembling them all by hand myself.

Podcast and Pre-order 

Standard

I chatted with J David Osborne of Broken River Books on The JDO Show recently. We talked about a lot of things, but mostly how I used to be a drunk and how much I love drag queens.

My new novella GLUE drops in a few days. Official release November 15th from Lazy Fascist Press. It’s my first book in almost exactly five years. It’s also perfectly pink. 

Get yours HERE 💟

Reuniting with a bunch of weirdos at BizarroCon for the first time in two years next week where I’ll get to see/hold this book for the first time, hug a lot of friends, stay up too late, take some workshops to work on my writing and generally feel great about being this weird for this long. 

Here’s an image I found in my phone that I forgot about that is apparently an artist rendering of me and my internal workings.
