Virtual Launch Recording

This is a YouTube version of the launch party conversation between myself and Clare Christian at Red Door Press. There are a couple of readings and a Q and A session revealing the origin of the book and what it was like writing it. Unfortunately the launch was virtual and this was the best we could do!
