For some reason, Jami has a tumblr now. It is here. Also, while there, check out the new book cover for her forthcoming novel THE MIDDLESTEINS. It is bold and brilliant.

Jami was pleased to be a part of the Conde Nast Traveler’s “A Scene Grows in Brooklyn” article. Also, Brooklyn Daily named her one of “Twelve to Watch in 2012″. And finally, she happily (and yet, sadly) wrote about the Occupy Wall Street Library for Salon. Currently she’s in New Orleans for two months, where it is much sunnier than Brooklyn.

Back in the real(ish) world, Spork has published an excerpt of the book she has been working on in 2010, and you can read that here.
