mjc-Erica John on fuck you impulse

You: Hey, where’ve you been?

Me: Writing, baby. Writing. I’ll tell you more next week. But also, reading and getting re-acquainted with Erica, and a few others.


P.S. The print copies of Tell Me are still not sorted out, but I keep on hearing any day… In the meantime… Kindle?
