Bourbon Cowboy

The adventures of an urbane bar-hopping transplant to New York.

Name:
Location: New York, New York, United States

I'm a storyteller in the New York area who is a regular on NPR's "This American Life" and at shows around the city. Moved to New York in 2006 and am working on selling a memoir of my years as a greeting card writer, and (as a personal, noncommercial obsession) a nonfiction book called "How to Love God Without Being a Jerk." My agent is Adam Chromy at Artists and Artisans. If you came here after hearing about my book on "This American Life" and Googling my name, the "How to Love God" book itself isn't in print yet, and may not even see print in its current form (I'm focusing on humorous memoir), but here's a sample I've posted in case you're curious anyway: Sample How To Love God Introduction, Pt. 1 of 3. Or just look through the archives for September 18, 2007.) The book you should be expecting is the greeting card book, about which more information is pending. Keep checking back!

Because When You Think of Me, You Think Bible Studies For Dyslexics

My friend Ryan (aka Tristram Shandy) mistyped my address as bourboncowboy.blogpsot.com---and he wound up here. Viral marketing? Crass opportunism? Are they taking every single "blogspot" name and buying up the typo version? Because I can't imagine the hundred or so hits I get a day matter much in their grand scheme.

NOTE: This should lead you to a site called "Amazing Bible Studies." But if it doesn't, it means that your browser is wise to these tricks, and--alas--the whole thing becomes less amusing. At work, I went straight there and tittered. Here at home I get a generic webfinder instead. Damn.

It's the entire domain: anything with "blogpsot.com" at the end leads you to this page.
