With Blood in Their Eyes Reading Tour, Sept and Oct 2012

September 24. Back in Arizona for a month to promote With Blood in Their Eyes. Spent last Friday in Phoenix, Scottsdale and Tempe, reading with Robert Morgan (Gap Creek) at Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe.

Got to see my old friends Roger Tomalty and Mary Hoadly from Arcosanti and the Costanti Foundation, and I got to hear my friend Elena Todd sing for the first time (live). Meeting up with old friends is the best part of this trip.

Tomorrow I'm going to be at the University of Arizona Bookstore for a reading/​signing and discussion with my friend Bruce Dinges of the Arizona Historical Society. Will get to see more old friends then.
