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.

With the introduction of “Fresh Off the Boat” to primetime programming on network television and other notable strides in media, Asian Americans are increasing their representation in mainstream media, with Asian American writers, actors, and artists taking control of their storytelling and representations of their communities. This event will focus on what this means for the community – the progress that has been made, the stories we choose to tell, and the work that is still left to do.
April is National Poetry Month, and PAWA (Philippine American Writers and Artists) and Kearny Street Workshop are doin’ a little something for the occasion.

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.
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.
