Books and Beer FAQ

Here are some frequently asked questions about the June 9 2018 reading event.

Where is it?
Summits Wayside Tavern, in the back room behind the taps.
Address is 3334 Stone Mountain Hwy, Snellville, GA 30078.

When is it?
June 9, 2018 at 7:30pm.  We'll go for a couple of hours unless lots of readers show up.
We'll fit everyone in.

Is there a deadline to signup?
Yes.  If you are reading, or even just coming to listen, shoot me an email at by June 2 2018.  I need to notify the venue so they can staff up.

Who can read?
Writers will read in these groups:

1. Writers with a published book read first.  It can be self-published or traditional.  It can be print or electronic.

2. Writers read from books that are ready for pre-order but have not published yet.

3. Writers read from any kind of work, even if it's not ready for purchase.

How does this event benefit the local food co-op?
Writers should bring two copies (or more) for donation to the raffle.
All proceeds from the raffle benefit the local co-op.

Can I sell copies of my glorious work?
Hell yes!  Bring a bunch of copies to sell.  Bring a pen and be prepared to autograph copies.
Be prepared to sign the writhing body parts of your new groupies.  Be prepared for fame and fortune.

Can I invite others?
Absolutely.  Bring friends, family, emotional support peacocks, whoever.

I write songs, not books.  Can I participate?
Yes!  The venue is small, so don't bring lots of elaborate equipment.

I write non-fiction.  Can I participate?

I write neo-nazi manifestos that degrade others that don't look or think like me.  Can I participate?
No.  You're a dick.

What is the schedule of events?
I cordially despise schedules.  I have too many in my life already.  But, if you insist, here's a vague outline:

7:00 - sign in and buy a beer; meet-and-greet
7:30 - start reading
7:45 - raffle drawing
?:?? - continue reading and raffling until we're done

Books and Beer - June 9

[Update:  see the FAQ here.]

On June 9, 2018, I am hosting a reading opportunity for local writers.  If you have had a book published, and you are near Atlanta, GA on June 9, you are cordially invited to read.  If not, feel free to come anyway and support the home team.

If you want to read, here is the plan:

1. Bring two copies of your book to raffle.  The raffle benefits the Southeast Gwinnett Food Co-op.
2. Bring other copies of your book to sell.
3. Be ready to sign your book (and body parts of your new groupies).
4. Reading starts at 7:30PM.  We'll go as long as necessary.
5. Plan to read for 5-10 minutes.  If you feel particularly extroverted, you can invite questions or feedback from the crowd.
6. DEADLINE: Contact me no later than June 2, 2018 to get on the list.  I need to notify the venue so they can staff up.

This is a mellow event in a small venue.  No stress; just a good time.  Maybe you'll make a buck or some new friends.

Scald the Breeze

Spillwords, recently published one of my micropoems titled 'Scald the Breeze.'  The link is here:

It's a short read, and it is certified free of political references. It also contains your required daily dose of poetry.

Spotlight On Writers

Recently, Dagmara, one of the editors at Spillwords, asked me if I would like to participate in an interview for their "Spotlight On Writers" series.

Even though I consider myself to be singularly uninteresting, I took the plunge.

On March 17, 2018, Spillwords will be publishing the interview, titled "Spotlight On Writers - Mickey Kulp."

I'll send out a link when it's available for your vast entertainment.  And I promise to remember all you little people as I sip unicorn milk from my flying yacht.

Rampant Capitalism

I am going to try out a capitalistic caper.  It's just an experiment, so play along if you feel froggy.

My latest paperback book, 'Roaming Outward' is selling on Amazon.

Amazingly, some ambitious online book sellers (see image below) are charging over $20 for my sacred tome.  But you deserve better.  The first ten people responding with United States mailing addresses can get a signed copy of my book with free shipping for the paltry sum of $7.99.

You respond by submitting a 'Friends and Family' payment in PayPal...

1. Login to PayPal
2. Select 'Send and Request'
3. Select 'Send to Friends and Family in the US'
4. Enter my email ''
5. Enter $7.99 as the amount.
6. In the 'Add a Note' section, enter your name and postal address.

After you are done with my written wisdom, I encourage you to donate the book to a shelter, prison, or local library.  If you choose to burn it, stab it, or perform some other ritualistic mayhem, send me a photo.

Reminder: Enter to Win

Reminder: you only have a few more days to enter for a chance to win my latest book.

It's a decent book, but don't take my word for it.  Clearly, you should follow the lead of a renowned celebrity and really beloved president of these very United States...

"Sorry losers and haters, but Mick's I.Q. is one of the highest -and you all know it! Please don't feel so stupid or insecure, it's not your fault.  Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really into Mick's poetry.  His books helped me go from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star ... to President of the United States (on my first try). I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius ... and a very stable genius at that!"

~Mick, S.D.G.

No presidents were harmed during the complete,
really top-notch fabrication of this blog post.
