Ben Vendetta Book Tour, Spring 2014


Starting on Saturday is the tour for this novel. Looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones. We’re calling this the “Dixie-Narco” tour in honor of this EP.

Many of these events are going to have DJs, drink specials, raffle prizes, and Mr. Vendetta reading or doing a Q&A session. Come for the literature and stay for the hangover!


So You Say You Were A 1980’s Indie Kid?

Have I mentioned lately that you should purchase the novel “Wivenhoe Park”? Because you really should. Just look at all the reviews! You don’t need to take my word for it just because I did the cover and he’s my husband.

But, also, if you want to try a crack at winning on of three copies, the amazing music site Slicing Up Eyeballs is having a contest that ends on Friday!

Saturday, December 7th from 2 to 4pm is a book signing with Mr. Vendetta at my favorite place for books in Cleveland, Loganberry Books.


We’re plotting a book tour from Chapel Hill down through New Orleans in the spring. These won’t all be at bookstores necessarily, but at cool venues where a DJ and beers will be involved, so stay tuned (and if you would like to host a party or know a place that sounds perfect, fill me in!)

Sex, Drugs, and Cassette Tapes

My husband’s novel is out! So go buy it here.

Kindle edition is available on there, but since I did the artwork you probably want the real deal, don’t you? Have fun guessing which character is based on me, and I can give you a hint: I’m not the goth. Sure I’m a grown-up goth now, but in 1985 I was seven years old, so it hadn’t hit me yet.



If you’d like to try your chance at winning a copy, be on the look out over at the Giveaway, there are 10 copies available.
