My day job (State Manager of the Louisiana Commodity Supplemental Food Program) has its good side, apart from the biweekly paycheck. A couple of times a year, I get to take an all-expenses-paid trip out of state for a regional or national convention. My next trip is to the US Department of Agriculture Southwest Regional Taskforce Meeting (sounds impressive, huh?) in Little Rock, Arkansas. I'll be there from Monday, December 6 to Wednesday, December 8. While I'm there, I'll be stopping by two local bookstores to sign copies of both Fat White Vampire books (I'll probably duck out of my meetings and head over to the stores Tuesday morning or afternoon). The two stores I'll be visiting are:
Barnes and Noble Booksellers
11500 Financial Center Parkway
Little Rock, AR 72211
Park Plaza, 6000 West Markham
Little Rock, AR 72205
One of my "official," work-related stops will be a visit to the new William Clinton Presidential Library. I'll see if they'd be interested in adding a couple of signed comic horror novels to their collection (hey, the books are set in the South. . . New Orleans isn't that far from Little Rock).
I don't know whether any afficianados of these boards live in the Little Rock area, but if any of you do and would like to get together for a cup of coffee while I'm in town, email me. And if you'd like a signed and cartooned copy of one of my books, please drop by one of the fine establishments listed above.

Cheers and Happy New Year to my new friends in Little Rock. I had some great meals, met some terrific folks, and the employees at the two bookstores I visited couldn't have been nicer. Plus, that streetcar ride across the Arkansas River is a kick!
Oh, and the William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Library really does look like a gigantic aluminum double-wide trailer.
