Anything You Want Release Coming

This book is a couple of weeks away from being released. It’s getting out there. And I love it. I think lots of people are going to hate it (oh, they do already). It’s my favorite book that I’ve written. The narrator, Taco, is so damn weird and annoying and hilarious and I find him pretty great (I wrote him, so…). Some people find him terrible (they put GIFs on Goodreads asking him to shut up). That’s okay.

Here’s the thing I’m thinking today: trauma can make a person weird, because trauma turns everything upside down. Maybe the horror creates a few Augustus Waters who are so smooth and beautiful, but I think it makes many more kids named Taco who ride on the edge of full crazy, because they’re trying so hard to be okay, and reality is way too much to bear.

Taco is as good and kind as they come, but he’s also chattering, painful, and delusional. He will climb on your house in the middle of the night if you make him your pal. I understand if you don’t want to hang around him. But, okay, really, I’d like you to try.

You can come to the Mankato release, if you’re around. I’ll go to Addendum in St. Paul on May 14, too. You can grab it on Amazon, if need be.
