Amulet Needs Your Help!


This book I wrote could use a little pick me up. And I’m asking for help from those of you who have purchased and read the book. Customer Reviews. However extensive or minimal as you so choose, whether on Amazon, Powell, or Goodreads. Hell, you can just go onto Goodreads and give me some stars. But reviews will help generate sales, and this is not a big money maker for me so that’s not the point. I still believe it’s worth being in people’s hands and that there’s still a lot of people out there it can reach. I hope you believe that, too. I’m working away at the next manuscript but I know it can still be meaningful for someone to discover the first, so help your boy out. Write a customer review.

The Official Berkeley Poetry Slam DJ Playlist

I have been quietly honing my slam “DJ” skills over the past year at the Berkeley Slam. DJ is in quotes because I ain’t gonna front like I can mix, but I can curate the hell out of some songs. So I put a spotify playlist together last night. It’s a compilation of what I played at the most recent team semifinals and some of the songs I tend to go to. Check it out if you are on Spotify. I’ll be adding to it so feel free to follow.

Jason on APEX Express last Thursday (3/19/2015)

Wanna hear me on the radio? From last Thursday’s APEX Express. I’m in the first 10 minutes talking about KSW’s co-presentation at ‪#‎CAAMfest2015‬ of Fred Ho’s Last Year.

Props to Robynn Takayama for editing all my uhmmms and stammers and thoughts that hit dead ends into coherent speech.

Jason is coming back to Austin, TX

FullSizeRender (32)

I’m back in Austin this weekend and for one night only, I’ll be reading with an amazing lineup of writers including my buddy and Write Bloody founder, Derrick Brown. I’ll also be reading with Chad Bennett, Loyce Gayo and Sasha West and I trust Sam Sax’s powers of curating so I very much look forward to getting to hear their work. This will be the only reading I’ll be doing while I’m there so catch me while you can because I got a wedding to go to and then I’m going right back home.

Friday 3/6 7-9pm
