Other Household Toxins Book Launch -- March 3!

Hey, adorable IMBO readers! I've been busy. Recently, Matter Press published my flash fiction collection Other Household Toxins. The book is an eclectic grouping of 48 stories from the last 10 years. From magic realism to hyper-realism, I've tried to include a wide palette.

On March 3, my friends in Norwich, UK are throwing me a party. This is such a wonderful thing. Everyone has been so helpful and so gracious, especially Helen Rye. If you live near Norwich, you are invited to come help us celebrate. And if you don't live near Norwich, no worries: parts of the event will be recorded and shared on Facebook.

I'm also thrilled to announce that my special guest for the evening will be my friend and fellow writer Tania Hershman. I'm very much looking forward to hearing her read on March 3 as well.

If you are interested in attending the launch, please send me a direct message and I'll make sure you're on the list. christopher@imustbeoff.com

Also, if you're attending AWP in Tampa, I will be there at the SmokeLong Quarterly table (T1748). So please stop by and say hello. My author signing in on Thursday, March 8 between 4 and 5pm.

I must be off,
