I had the honor of reading at an event yesterday for the launch of Olga Zilberbourg’s book of short stories published in Moscow. As the topic was Russian-American literature, I spoke about and read from my book, “Vanya Says, ‘Go!'” because it was originally written in Russian and I retold it in English. The feedback was quite positive (although no one bought any books), and one of the other authors gave me some motivation to continue this new genre I seem to have created. The other readers read from their own works or favorites. A great afternoon!
For the week of January 30 through February 3, Vanya visited the following blogs:
A book giveaway has been offered. As soon as I know more, I will post the details.
I have enlisted the services of Embrace the Rainbow, a woman in London who promotes LGBTQ books on various book blogs. The run is from January 23 through February 3.
So far, the listing has appeared on:

Last night, at Dog Eared Books Castro, we had the official launch of my latest book, “Vanya Says, ‘Go!’.”
In 1906, Mikhail Kuzmin published “Wings,” the first book in Russian to discuss same-sex relationships in a positive light. With “Vanya Says, ‘Go!,'” Wayne Goodman retells the story from the perspective of the young man at the heart of the tale. The original work contained only three sections, but a fourth has been added to round out the story and provide some closure.
