Portland release party for Hagridden

Today’s the day, gang! I’ve only been back in my home city of Portland for a few days, but it’s been enough to rest up from my big Southern book tour, and now it’s PDX’s turn for a Hagridden party! And folks, this one’s gonna be a doozy. We’re at the Independent Publishing Resource Center, one ofContinue reading “Portland release party for Hagridden”

More people reading Hagridden

Here we are again! Some of the folks reading Hagridden are being super cool and sending me pics of their copy — on bookshelves, with booze, in the bayou. Basically, places that begin with B. (Not really — I made that up.) So here are a few more photos of Hagridden that people have been posting to socialContinue reading “More people reading Hagridden”

People reading Hagridden

Back when my chapbook, Box Cutters, came out, I did a thing where I posted photos of people reading the book. It was awesome, because the people who bought and read Box Cutters are awesome. So are the people who are buying and reading Hagridden, because they’re doing the same thing and I didn’t evenContinue reading “People reading Hagridden”

An evening in Austin, Texas

Gang, I have a hell of a book tour coming together this fall, and now, in addition to a handful of other events in central Texas, I’ll be hanging out in the Capital of Southern Cool, Austin, Texas, on August 20! Come find me and author Zoë Miller at the cool indie bookstore, Malvern Books, atContinue reading “An evening in Austin, Texas”

People reading Box Cutters in Powell’s!

Today I met up with my grad school pal Rima and some of her colleagues, who are in Oregon at a very cool NEH Summer Institute. And since we’re all of us academics (read: NERDS!), of course we met up at Powell’s City of Books. Everyone bought a stack of books, because how can youContinue reading “People reading Box Cutters in Powell’s!”

New review of Box Cutters

Folks, there’s a new review of my chapbook, Box Cutters! This one’s by Elise Matthews, in American Microreviews and Interviews, and maybe I’m biased, but I think it’s a fascinating read. A lot of reviewers have paid a lot of attention to the “between the lines” stuff going on behind the stories, but Matthews goes theContinue reading “New review of Box Cutters

New review of Box Cutters

I am so, so happy to announce that Danny M. Hoey, Jr, author of the novel The Butterfly Lady, has written a review of my chapbook, Box Cutters! The review is up at Heavy Feather Review, and it’s beautifully kind! In language that is poetic, evocative, and lean, Snoek-Brown has managed to create a world thatContinue reading “New review of Box Cutters

New review of Box Cutters

I just learned that Spencer Dew has written a new review of Box Cutters; it appears in the March issue of decomP magazine. Dew’s comments are humbling: This opening story shows Snoek-Brown at the height of power, mastering the sort of casual, interior ramble that puts us, as readers, inside the skull and soul ofContinue reading “New review of Box Cutters

Writers at AWP reading Box Cutters

This is my last AWP post for a long while, I promise. But one of my favorite things at the conference was meeting people who bought my book, Box Cutters. I like to think that whenever someone reads my book, they’re inviting me into their lives as much as I’m inviting them into mine. It’sContinue reading “Writers at AWP reading Box Cutters

Friends and family reading Box Cutters

Here I am at AWP, with new photos of people at the conference picking up copies of Box Cutters, and I’m still getting photos from family and friends with the chapbook, too! This is so exciting, gang, that I had to go ahead and share these new photos with you. And more (clearer) photos ofContinue reading “Friends and family reading Box Cutters”
