Couple of Quick Bits of Writing News

* My Review of the Film 2012 Arriving Tuesday at Cinema Knife Fight
* Reading in Princeton Wednesday April 28th
* Wheels & Heels Against MS time

Hi, everyone. A couple of news items:

I have a new movie review column at the Bram-Stoker nominated review site Cinema Knife Fight (http://www.cinemaknifefight.com/) run by L.L. Soares and Michael Arruda. I'm their science fiction reviewer, and my first - covering the disaster flick 2012 - is appearing on Tuesday, April 27th. New content is being added all the time so if you don't see it (again, not appearing until tomorrow, Tuesday), scroll down a bit. Agree or not with my take, hope you enjoy it.

I'll be doing a reading, with other local Princeton writers, this Wednesday evening April 28th at 7:30 at the Princeton Center building (18 Boylston Avenue) in an open mike night in honor of National Poetry Month. If you're in the area, be great to see you there!

2010 Wheels & Heels Against MS

This September 11th – 12th, 2010 is the annual MS Challenge Walk, a 30 mile, 2-Day walk through Cape Cod that raises money to fight the effects of Multiple Sclerosis. (note: this year it's down to 30 miles and 2 days because of conflict with Rosh Hashanah).

Once again my sister Anne Murphy and brother Paul Keohane, our family and friends will be participating with their “Wheels and Heels Against MS’ team.

This year they'll be holding another raffle: everyone who donates will have an opportunity to win a prize! In fact, a whole month of prizes! List of prizes is coming soon (prize donations always welcome, too!). Every $25 donated earns 1 chance ($100 earns 4 chances….and so on.)

This October Anne & Paul will draw a name every day from the names of generous supporters and that person wins the prize for that day. Prizes could include free haircuts, beautiful necklaces and earrings, gift certificates, copies of Solomon's Grave, etc.

OK, that's about it. Thanks...
