Fri. Dec. 6th and Sat. Dec. 7th: Holiday Book Signing

ChotfHi everyone!  I’ll be at Church of the Foothills in Orange County, CA, signing books on Friday December 6th and Saturday December 7th, from 9AM to 3PM each day.  There will be lots of other gift items on sale, so come by and get your holiday shopping done in one swoop!

Church of the Foothills is a great, progressive Christian church located in Tustin Hills across Dodge Avenue from Foothill High School.  LGBT affirming with an active LGBT presence.  We’ve organized protest rallies against Prop 8 at the church and held the first legal church wedding in OC of LGBT couples, my dear friends Deb and Mary Kay.  Check out some of the pastor’s mind-blowing sermons, including a reinterpretation of the role of eunuchs in church history, and just what Jesus thought of them, on the church website linked above.  See you soon!

Book Launch Celebration & Signing: November 15th @ Eikon Home

Gift Launch Event

Join award-winning author Kergan Edwards-Stout as he celebrates the launch of his new collection of holiday-themed short stories at the wonderful Eikon Home & Gift in Old Town Orange. Mix and mingle among the singular gift items, get your copy of Gifts Not Yet Given signed, and enjoy wine and snacks while you shop. It’s a great way to usher in the holidays!  Check out the Facebook event page and share with your friends!

“Kergan Edwards-Stout’s stories are muscular, funny, sad and an antidote to holiday treacle, no matter the holiday. His writing is fueled by an original mix of compassion and rage. Several of the stories left me in tears, which certainly beats being left in tears by my own family at holiday time. Which means: he understands family, and the often crossed wires of family love. You will want to give his book as a gift.” – Richard Kramer, novelist, These Things Happen

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
