Meet, Hear, Chat, Sign: Upcoming Appearances!

Hey everyone,

Thanks for all the great notes about my recent letter to Rupert Everett.  Glad it is resonating with so many!

I’m very excited about some upcoming events I wanted to share with you.  I value each and every opportunity to share with readers my novel, Songs for the New Depression, meet you, and answer your questions.

I hope you’ll check out the following events:

  • Tomorrow, Thursday September 20th, I’ll be in Los Angeles at homo-centric, doing a reading and book signing.  The reading starts at 7:30 (promptly) and is at Stories Books & Cafe.  In addition to reading from my novel, I’ll also be sharing a new short story, which will be part of my upcoming collection, Gifts Not Yet Given.  Check out the facebook event page for more details.
  • On Tuesday September 25th at 6PM PST/9PM EST I’ll be chatting LIVE with Tom on Ramble Redhead.  Tom’s podcast recently hit over 500 episodes, which is a huge accomplishment, and I’m honored to be joining the long list of folks he’s interviewed.  We’ll be chatting about my novel, Songs for the New Depression, as well as a whole host of other topics, and I’m really looking forward to it.  Hope you’ll give it a listen!  Ramble Redhead can also be followed on Twitter and Facebook!
  • On Sunday September 30th, 1:30-2:30PM, I’ll be on a panel at the West Hollywood Book Fair and signing books afterward.  Wonderful writer Nöel Alumit (author of Letters to Montgomery Clift) will be moderating a panel on gay fiction, and my fellow panelists will be Eduardo Santiago (Tomorrow They Will Kiss) and George Snyder (On the Wings of Affection).  For a complete rundown on all of the exciting events, please click here.
  • On the weekend of November 3 & 4, head to Palm Springs Pride, where I’ll be appearing at the Author’s Village, brought to you by Q Trading.  More details, coming soon!

If you missed the fun radio podcast I did with This Show is So Gay, please check it out.  They were really terrific, and the interview was lots of fun!

Lastly, there is now a discussion group on Goodreads where folks can ask me any and everything about my book (and future books), writing, activism and life. Please consider joining in and chime in with your comments, questions, and opinions!

I hope you’ll come out and see me at these events.  There is nothing better than meeting readers and talking about art, life, and love, so I hope you’ll come to one of these fun happenings and connect!  More info to follow!

Take care,

Kergan


Upcoming Appearances: Kergan Edwards-Stout

Hey everyone!

Fall is shaping up to be an incredibly busy season, and I value each and every opportunity to share with readers my novel, Songs for the New Depression, meet you, and answer your questions. And, yes, I have another book up my sleeve for the holidays, if only I can meet the deadlines!

In the meantime, please check out the following events:

  • On Thursday September 20th, I’ll be in Los Angeles at homo-centric, doing a reading and book signing.
  • On Sunday September 30th, I’ll be on a panel at the West Hollywood Book Fair and signing books afterward.
  • On the weekend of November 3 & 4, head to Palm Springs Pride, where I’ll be appearing at the Author’s Village, brought to you by Q Trading.

Hey, I’m a media whore, so if you have other venues at which I can appear, let me know! 🙂  If you missed the fun radio podcast I did with This Show is So Gay, please check it out.  They were really terrific, and the interview was lots of fun!

In addition to the book being available on Amazon, BN.com, and other online sellers, I’ve recently gotten notes from such wonderful stores carrying the book as BookShop Santa Cruz and Q Trading/Palm Springs, both in California; Morris Book Shop in Lexington, KY: and RiverRun Bookstore in Portsmouth, NH!  If you know other stores which should be carrying Songs, please let me know.  This book has percolated within me for many years, and I’m hoping that it resonates with as many as I can reach.

I hope you’ll come out and see me at these events.  There is nothing better than meeting readers and talking about art, life, and love, so I hope you’ll come to one of these fun happenings and connect!  More info to follow!

Take care,

Kergan


Blade California Covers “Songs for the New Depression”!

My sincere thanks to the great folks over at Blade California for including Songs for the New Depression in their June gay pride issue!  Our family did a photo shoot for them many years ago which was lots of fun, and it is terrific to be included now with my book. The magazine is on their website in flash format, so the screenshot is difficult to read, but if you head over to their site, the article is on page 31.  Thank you, Blade!


Panties Up, Skirt Down!

Never in my life could I have imagined I’d ever be included on a website bearing the name PANTIES UP, SKIRT DOWN, but I have!  My thanks to Dangerous Lee, whose book of six erotic safer sex tales gives title to the website.  I appreciate being included in her Gay Pride Month Spotlight–Thanks so much!
