Being good to each other is so important, guys.

Well that took an unexpected turn

In a really wonderful way

When my friend sheepishly admits to me that she loved a book that I hate

Pictured: me holding the hardback US edition of my novel, Wolf in White Van, on the day I got it from Farrar, Strauss & Giroux: today, Thursday, August 21, 2014. Not to get all emotional with you but the first real ambition I ever had was to be an author. As a child I dreamt of seeing my name on book jackets. Now I am covering up most of that name with my hand, but yet refuse to re-take the picture, because I feel my deep-game goth powers are so strongly in evidence here that it must be shared as-is to give hope to both the revealed & the crypto-goths. 
Huge, huge thanks to all who brought me to this day - teachers, friends, all of you who’ve listened to my songs or read stuff I’ve written and connected with what you found there, who believed in me - may I always be worthy of your support!
Finally, because people will ask so why not get it out of the way up front: the lyric at the piano behind me is “Beyond the Mysterious Beyond” from The Land Before Time 7: The Stone of Cold Fire, a song which I can totally sing the hell out of, and you don’t have to take it from me, you can ask my son, who insists that I sing it at least eight times a day, which I do cheerfully and I’d do a ninth time, too, if he wanted, because, as I am always asking in my better moments, why the hell not. 

We’re hosting him! We’re hosting John Darnielle for his book tour! We are so flipping excited for October. Get your tickets Chicago! http://www.lincolnhallchicago.com/Shows/10-07-2014+John+Darnielle
