Write and publish with love and fury.

Met Kevin Smith at Live From Behind in Toronto! He and Jay have my book!

Last night I shook hands and had a chat with Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith (Jay and Silent Bob for those not in the cult). Each now have a signed copy of my book, Self-help for Stoners. They couldn’t have been more gracious, interested, warm or friendly. It was a big moment for me, especially when Kevin recognized the book and said, “Hey! I know you!”

Each got a personalized recommendation for stories they might particularly like from Self-help and it was a genuine pleasure all around. We laughed a lot. As always, of course, Kevin spoke inspired and inspiring words about writing and the creative process.

I’m a bit emotional today. It was a milestone in the evolution, not just of the book, but for me taking the leap to writing full-time. It was just over a year ago that I decided I needed to “stop chasing the puck” and quit my job of twenty years. Things went full circle last night. And now? Onward. Three novels are coming out this year with my name on them. Hoo-ha!

I must make this writing thing work.

Bonus? As I walked up onstage, Jay sang Paperback Writer. Yes!

    I had no idea he wrote self help. If you’re going to be a stoner you should be the most stoned that you can be.

  2. I completely failed you in the moment and didn’t get it on video! For this I apologize a thousand times. From where I was sitting it was a complete success for you. Congrats! (though a guy at work who watched the simulcast referred to you as “the guy who quit curing leukemia”).
    The email from Megels and the shout out from Jay on Twitter about my art present were the highlight of my night!
