Hello, all—I know it's been a spell since I updated this blog. Hoping to get back on the horse with more news and updates about Forgotten Borough, seeing as how we have more events planned throughout the spring!
A belated but warm, appreciative THANK YOU to everyone who made it out to our official launch party last month, especially our divine readers for the evening: Marcy Dermansky, Arthur Nersesian, and Susan Y. Chi, who was kind enough to fill in at the last minute. It was also great to see (and, in some cases, finally meet!) so many contributors from the book. Some wonderful faces included Jayanti Tamm, Ron Hogan, Buzz Poole, Juanita Torrence-Thompson, Marissa Walsh, and our excellent cover artist, Sheryl Yvette, aka *bitch cakes*! The best part of the event, perhaps, was seeing so many unfamiliar faces—a big thanks to all who spread the word and gave us such a big and lovely crowd!
The above photo was taken at the party by Sheryl Yvette—whose flickr should you should definitely check out if you haven't already, as she's an amazing photog. Below is the book beside the bike that appears on the cover—Sheryl's bike! The most famous bike in Queens.
More updates to come soon! Stay tuned!
