Mike Jung has an agent and a book deal, but before that stuff happened he was just another irritating guy spending too much time on the internet blabbing on and on about nothing. Find out how he pulled the wool over everyone’s eyes and started a career as a published author anyway. Mike is represented by Ammi-Joan Paquette of the Erin Murphy Literary Agency, and his debut novel GEEKS, GIRLS AND SECRET IDENTITIES is forthcoming from Arthur A. Levine Books. Yes, in fact I AM writing about myself in third person. TRY AND STOP ME. Yes, in fact I AM inviting people who live as far away as France. YOU SHOULD BE FLATTERED. That’s an unreasonably long way to travel, I must really want to see you there!
Fun, inventive and possibly masochistic activities that you may be asked to participate in at this gala event:
- You will have the opportunity to serve as proxy for a heckler who cannot attend.
- You might be forced to hold a ridiculous homemade sign and participate in a group photo.
- There will be at least a couple of attempts to coerce you into doing something silly that will eventually appear on YouTube.
