EVERYTHING YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT THE ART OF ASKING BUT WERE AFRAID TO ASK (or AT LEAST DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO GOOGLE)

The Art of Asking Book Cover

Dear Reader,

First of all...thank you for reading the book. And Second...thank you for actually taking the time to follow the link. Here we are. I tried to compile the most interesting Book-Related stuff here and on my new timeline: more photos, links to videos and things I talk about in the book, links to relevant ol' blogs (like poem-gate, and the kickstarter stuff, and my blog about getting married to Neil....).

And most important....the music.

The Art Of Asking was hard for me to write for lots of reasons, but one of them hinged around the idea that I was going to get lost as a musician and lose my songwriting identity.

As it happened - I barely wrote any songs (and wrote very few blogs) while I was working on the book....I'm just getting back to it now. But it's my dream that if you read the book, you'll care about the music that made the whole story possible, so I worked really hard to make THIS part of my website an introduction to the uninitiated.

I've been recording music for over twenty years, when I started four-tracking in my bedroom. There's a lot to sift through. I tried to make it easy.

ALSO, I may be coming to your city on THE BOOK TOUR. Please come say hi.

Welcome, friends.
