~ Colin Dodds: A launch party in Brooklyn in November ~

Colin Dodds chez lui

September 2019. After a long, languorous summer, I have a lot of news to share. My latest novel, Ms. Never, is coming out on November 1! It’s about a woman with apocalyptic depression and a guy who buys people’s souls using the Terms of Service in cell-phone contracts. They fall in love and risk everything to save their family and reality itself. To get the book early and cheap, stop by the preorder-fundraising campaign. Plus, there’s gonna be a party! You’re invited to celebrate the launch of Ms. Never on November 9 at 7 p.m. at The Fourth Avenue Pub, 76 4th Ave (between Bergen & St. Mark’s) in Brooklyn, NY, near several subway stations and the LIRR. It will be a fantastic evening of books, drinks, great conversation and popcorn. Hope to see you there!

July 2019. I’m pleased to report that I have my first two full-length short story collections coming out: You Might Forget the Sky was Ever Blue via Duck Lake Books on September 15 and Circus Folk via Hoot ‘n’ Waddle Press in November. The first of these is a full-length short story collection that includes experiments in form with a social conscience, including stories about a third-grade teacher in Baltimore who tries to make sense of the world to students during the 2016 U.S. presidential election campaign, and a boy raised to believe he’s legendary star wrestler Hulk Hogan’s little brother. My website is miketchin.com.

— Best wishes, Michael Chin
