Tongue & Groove Goes Virtual!

Please join us for the very first live webshow of Tongue & Groove on Concert Window. Have you heard about this site? It’s primarily used by musicians, but with your support this can turn out to be a viable option for writers too. Wherever you are in the world, you can tune in!

This is not going to replace live readings, but for this night you can forget about parking, a sitter, traffic etc. This is an exciting new venture and I’d appreciate your support. Please click on the link below to get your ticket early. Please do this right away and please share this with others.

During the show you’ll be able to interact too with requests, TIPS, comments etc. The webshow will not be available after the live broadcast. Please join us.
