Welcome! This website is centered around my blog, which initially began as a sort of personal online journal, but has expanded to cover an eclectic range of topics. I am a social media enthusiast, emerging writer, and host of the Talking Taiwan podcast. Thanks for visiting and following along my personal journey!

The METROPOLICKS Book Release Party and other news

No one has waited as long as we have for this moment, which was FOUR years in the making!

And now we, my co-author, Victor Scott Rodriguez and I want to CELEBRATE with you- especially those of you who have personally contributed to making Metropolicks happen.

We've booked Toshi's Living Room at the Flatiron Hotel, for the Metropolicks book release party on THURSDAY, JANUARY 8, 2015, 6-9pm.

It's THE perfect venue for a very special LIVE performance by Jami Jackson, the singer, songwriter of the songs "Let Love Live" and "Keep Walkin' On"- both were featured in the Metropolicks music videos.

What else can you expect to happen at the event?

Lots of photo ops with this gorgeous venue as a backdrop

Of course the "normal stuff" you'd expect at a book release party-- like the reading of an excerpt of the book, but you can bet that it will be done with a little twist

AND what would a book release party be without BOOKS?! Metropolicks is currently only available as an ebook, but we will have a VERY limited number of printed copies on hand, some of which will be RAFFLED OFF to some lucky winners at the event. 

It's going to be a night to remember!

METROPOLICKS Name That Movie Monday


As part of our social media strategy for Metropolicks we'll be starting something called "METROPOLICKS Name That Movie" on Monday, December 15, 2014. Every Monday we will be posting a photo from a movie that has something to do with a chapter of Metropolicks. Test your movie trivia and make a guess. Then come back on Tuesday to find out if you're right.

VISIT and LIKE our Facebook page, FOLLOW us on Twitter or PIN us on Pinterest to pay along. 

We're going to be getting busy on social media! Here's what else we have planned:

On Wednesdays we'll be posting the "METROPOLICKS Weekly Wednesday Quote" #MWWQ, which will be a quote from the novel Metropolicks or an original quote from us, the co-authors of Metropolicks.

And on Fridays we'll be posting the "METROPOLICKS Free Advice Friday" #MFAF, which will be a quote about love and/or relationships, or a piece of relationship/love advice.
