UHell merch will be available at all events. We’re also installing ourselves at a crazy-fun booth w/Write Bloody at the AWP Bookfair, open to the public for only $5 on Saturday, March 30.
Come find us, Hellions!
And to kick off such freshness, we’re hosting a billiony events during the annual AWP Conference and Bookfair the last week of March. (Thank god it’s on home turf this year. Jeebuz.)
As usual, we’re sharing space at the Bookfair with our pals at Write Bloody. It’s not gonna be your usual booth experience. Even if you aren’t registered ($$$$$) for the entire festival, the public has access to over 700 publishers on Saturday, March 30th. So, do that.
We’re also hosting fab, fun, and free off-site events throughout the week that everyone is welcome to attend. On Wednesday, March 27th, join us in our festival kick-off poetry and dance party! You’ve got to register for this FREE event via Evite, so please do so ASAP or you’ll miss all the fun.
Finally, on Saturday, March 30th, we’ll be rockin and rollin at The Waypost as small press luminaries from Write Bloody, Clash Books, and UHell compete with the most powerful weapons we got. Oh, yeah: the evening will (d)evolve into karaoke magic, so there’s that, too.
See you soon, fine people!
Beloved LitCrawl and the festival formerly known as Wordstock are just around the corner and we’d love to see you there. First, at LitCrawl on Friday, November 9th at the Ace Hotel Lobby, where we’re hosting True Stories with authors you must get to know and fun you must have. MUST. All event details can be found on our FB invite page.
Next up, on Saturday, November 10th, we’ll be hanging out in our booth with the fine folks from Buckman Journal (which you really must get your hot little hands on immediately if not sooner) at the Portland Book Festival.
We’re super excited about November. See you in it!
Join us Saturday, July 28th at 7:00pm at the fab and fine Mother Foucault’s Bookshop in Portland, Oregon. (Obvs? Obvs.) Michael McLaughlin will be reading from his collection Countless Cinemas. Local author Jessica Dylan Miele will help us kick off this summertime soirée with a short story. Or, two.
Come see for yourselves! For more details on the event, see our FB invite.
We had a blast in LA last month and are in high-speed production mode to unleash new works for the duration of 2018. Stay tuned for updates on events and releases in the coming months!
We’re packing up our bags and books, and heading to SoCal next week for the LA Times Festival of Books. We’ll be sharing lucky booth #146 with our pals at Write Bloody so stop by for a look-see, stay and visit, and check out newest releases and old favorites. Some of our authors will be on deck to read, sign, and generally carouse, too.
See you in LA!
We’re already packing up the books, stickers, and tees to get ready for AWP18 next week in Tampa, FLA (March 7-10). If you’re attending this annual gathering, along with the other 15,000+ lit lovers, please pop by the Bookfair and find us patiently awaiting your arrival at the Write Bloody booth. (ProTip: If you’re not able to attend the entire conference, at least come to the Bookfair on Saturday / $45. &, we know. Right?)
We’re also hosting a book release extravaganza in St Petersburg at Books at Park Place on Friday, March 9th, 6:30pm. Here, you’ll meet and hear from the new works of some terrific authors: Pablo Brescia, Nikia Chaney, Isobel O’Hare, and Wryly McCutchen. Can’t wait to see you there!
There’s SO MUCH good news already in 2018 – book releases galore (Burns, Chaney, O’Hare, to name just a few), new partnerships (including distributor SCB & The Big Smoke), and events at Powell’s, AWP18 Tampa, and the LA Times Festival of Books.
Buy a book! Support an author! Attend an event! We can’t wait to share great lit with you this year. See you soon – like at Powell’s Hawthorne on January 18th to celebrate the latest releases from Wryly McCutchen and Stephen M Park.
We’re gearing up for the Wordstock Book Festival in Portland with two terrific events. If you’re in town, we’d love to see you there!
First up, join us for rowdy LitCrawl antics at the Ace Hotel on Friday, November 10th with our celebrity slam-prov sessions.
After Wordstock on Saturday, November 11th (we’ll be sharing a table with pals from Write Bloody Publishing so please stop by to say hello), we’re co-hosting a terrific reading and book release party at The Waypost. No finer way to kick off your Saturday night.
Eager to share our authors’ finest with you, and hear about your fall inspirations, too, so show up, fine people!
