It’s the start of December here in Orlando, which means that I am stuck in the whirlwind of my book release. The book officially saw local release in early November, with my truly amazing book launch party at The Orange Studio in downtown Orlando. But the “street date” for my book release is actually December 11, which means that we’re still a week and a half away from Amazon shipping copies to my “national” fan base. (Do I have a national fan base? I’ll just say “yes” so that I can feel good about myself.)
It’s an exciting time to be Nathan Holic, let me tell you. And to prove it, here’s a quick round-up of some press and some Bright Lights, Medium-Sized City articles from the past month or so.
I had a great time chatting with the Townie Tourist, both about the book, and about a billion other things. You can read her “20 Questions” text interview with me right here, and you can watch a video of our much larger conversation here.
I was profiled in the monthly Orange County Library magazine, and while I can’t offer a direct link to the article, this will take you to the pdf for the issue!
I’ve also got a comics workshops called “Comics For Non-Artists” at the library on December 9th. Here’s the link to that one!
And I was fortunate to get a great review of the book at one of my favorite literary magazines, Saw Palm. Check out there review here!
And the Orlando Sentinel also gave a great write-up for the book here, though I wasn’t fast enough to run out and get a print copy…
Additionally, riding high on the fumes of my book release, I was inducted into UCF’s Scroll & Quill Society, which recognizes faculty with a strong record of publication over the course of a decade at the university. Read about it here!
I’m sure that I’m forgetting some other links, but that’s why I have a blog, right? I’ll write a round-up at the end of the month, and all omissions shall be forgotten!
