A Quick Note from the Trenches

I’ve been delinquent on my Monday blogs, friends. Sorry about that. South Louisiana is getting the best of me!

The last couple weeks have been a whirling dervish of meeting new readers, fellow writers, and spreading the good word of New Bayou Books. A reading event at the Calcasieu Parish Library in Sulphur (photo below). A lovely conversation with Jan Swift on a taped episode of the Discover Lafayette podcast (coming soon). Even a spot on the local TV morning show (home page). Not to mention slapping more than a few New Bayou Books stickers on more than a few public surfaces (allegedly).

Oh, and then there was the hour I spent floating in the deprivation tank yesterday . . . that’s definitely a future blog.

But the fun isn’t over. In the near future there’s an open mic comedy appearance, dinner and drinks with my favourite priest, and a day at the Black Pot festival cooking cow tongue with my brother. All the while passing out copies of New Bayou Books, tee shirts, stickers, and cards. This whole South Louisiana outreach trip continues to be fun as hell.

Look for a full report soon. Meanwhile, thanks for fanning the flame that will ultimately be the glorious, psychedelic swamp fire of South Louisiana literature!

JR Reed started New Bayou Books to spark a revolution in Louisiana literature. The goal of the company is simple: to great writers out of the shadows to carry on the Louisiana literary tradition.
