Cover proof 4My book, “On the Guest List: Adventures of a Music Journalist”

What a pleasant surprise this morning to see my book, “On the Guest List: Adventures of a Music Journalist” pinned on a “Career” board on Pinterest, amongst other music journalist greats like Lisa Robinson and Lester Bangs, which is such an honor because these are the journalists I’ve read when I was 12-years-old! I am humbled as I’ll never have the writing chops they do. “Guest List” is more of a love letter to myself, a recollection of things that meant a lot to me, not necessarily others, but if someone gets it, more power to them! Nevertheless, I’m still stoked to get royalty checks and unexpected surprises like this. I never expected my book to be doing as good as it is!

Guest List Made “Badass Books” List!

I’m pretty jazzed that “Guest List” made the “Badass Books” list on Pinterest:  http://www.pinterest.com/kristenelizam/badass-books/

I never thought of my book to be a great work of literature; just some fun memories written in a fun way. Perhaps more like punk art than journalism. After being a serious journalist for many years, I wanted to do something fun with no rules. I didn’t even hire a copy editor for “Guest List” to make it more “punk.” And all the chapters are arranged by song titles. (Though I’m sure many people reading don’t even know half the titles. THAT is how underground Guest List is!)

All that said, it’s pretty cool to be listed amongst literary geniuses like Bukowski, Hell, Ginsberg. And that’s the beauty of being a reader, your tastes can cover a vast spectrum.

I’m honored and always humbled.
