Book 4 of the Felix Gomez adventures, Jailbait Zombie,
is on the streets and we're in maximum promotional mode.But first:
What's the connection between the who-done-it, paranormal, and easy listening jazz? I explain it all in my essay on Michelle Gagnon's Kill Zone blog. Bonus, you get to share what paranormal creature you'd like to be.
The A.V. section of this week's Onion
will run an interview of me by the fabulous (and dangerous) Cat Rambo. Besides her work on the Onion
, she's a co-editor of the acclaimed Fantasy Magazine:http://www.darkfantasy.org/fantasy
Over at The Big Thrill
, newsletter of the International Thriller Writers
, I interviewed Colorado author Jim Hansen where we discussed his most recent novel, Voodoo Laws
.WAIT! There's more:
If Felix's fourth book is out, that means Book 5 is almost done. So far, Felix has gone against nymphos, alien gangsters, government assassins, and zombies. Now what? Get this: werewolves. In the wicked city a.k.a Charleston, SC. For research I visited the Lowcountry and had the good fortune of having Mark Jones show me Charleston's diamonds and dirt.
Mark vents about what's overrated in our popular culture. You're invited to vent as well.http://keepingupwiththejones-markjones.blogspot.com/Your Cheating Heart.
Infidelity can be bad news...but also good business. Real life private investigator, Colleen Collins, tells how taking on a case involving a cheating spouse can mean more than gathering the dirty goods. You could wind up as a marriage counselor. Check out her post on the blog of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Mystery Writers of America.http://mysterymuse.wordpress.com/SRO for Zombie and Werewolves!
, everybody's favorite werewolf author, joined me for a joint signing of our newest books at the Denver Book Mall. A bunch of local authors showed up in support of us, to include Terry Wright, (Hugo and Nebula award winning) Connie Willis, Laura Reeve, Warren Hammond, our own Jeanne, and Thea Hutchinson (see below).
Here's Carrie explaining why, to her, vampires are so last century. Notice the skeptical audience (and rightly so).
I raffle a notorious Devil Duck at every signing. Here is the latest victim, the unsuspecting Thea.New Contest!
Your chance to win lots of shwag. All you have to do is explain which fictional character you'd like to spend the night with. Remember, the seamier the story, the better. Check back on Thursday when Jeanne explains the dirty details and how to enter.Felix on the road.
