Tuesday night, Denver's best independent bookseller, Tattered Cover, hosted the official launch party for my novel Taft 2012. I posted about the event on the blog of Quirk Books, my esteemed and wonderful publisher. Despite my abject fear of public speaking, I somehow managed to string untold dozens of sentences together in some semblance of coherence. Or at least some pitying souls in attendance (i.e. my mom) were kind of enough to say.
