Live interview with Josh Grant of Diabolic Shrimp, Tuesday Feb 7 at 1pm Eastern!

February 6, 2023

Come check out a fun chat, show-and-tell, and dramatic performance of a scene from The Middling Affliction, to be live streamed on the Diabolic Shrimp YouTube channel tomorrow afternoon. Audience participation a plus. And, there’s a rumored appearance of a celebrity dog (or, at least, a dog that thinks she’s a celebrity.)

If you can’t make it, you will be able to watch the interview later. But it’s always more fun live, isn’t it?
