As you all know, I like to eat. This explains why I’ve gone from crackhead skinny to slovenly fatass the past ten or so years. However, I am not ashamed of my proclivity for delicious food. Therefore, I will be sharing with all of you photos of my amazing meals, like the above photo of [...]

As a writer, there are two things that I unquestionably love: alcohol and writing. Thankfully, Brooklyn coffeehouse Bedford Hill has decided to combine the two for their new reading series Words With Beers.

After the taxing week I had, there was nothing I wanted more than a nice, cold pint of Blue Point. Cheers! Share this:

Those who lust for liquor and literature, such as myself, will be happy to know that tomorrow is the 2012 Brooklyn Lit Crawl. Created by the deviant bibliophiles behind San Francisco’s Litquake, the Brooklyn Lit Crawl is exactly what you think it is: a book-and-booze fest that will feature over thirty authors (including my literary crush, [...]

Before my debut novel GUESTLIST was actually a tangible object that people could purchase and read, I told everyone that it would be available at all the usual online book retailers: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Powell’s. (Hey, Powell’s, what the hell?) But people asked, “Well, will it be available at [insert local bookstore]?” “Oh, sure,” [...]

First, I need y’all to udnerstand something. I am currently blogging from a bar. From a motherfucking bar. And not that cute, mobile-style blogging via the WordPress app (which is pretty fucking boss, btw). I’ve got my MacBook Air out on a dirty table, hammering shit out while sipping on a Blue Point and surrounded [...]

As you should already know, GUESTLIST is finally released. To celebrate the novel’s release, we held a book release party this past Monday at cocktail bar Hanson Dry in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. The party was a grand success – friends, colleagues, co-workers, drinking buddies, women I lust after adore, everyone came out to celebrate, and [...]
