Getting Foxy

Fox Spirit Books items this week: A terrific review for DRAG NOIR over at British Fantasy. It’s taking a while, but people are discovering this book that brings a unique twist on the noir genre: What I like about the anthology is that K.A. Laity has taken the time out to make sure she has…

Venice and More

Apologies for dropping out of things lately: insanely busy trying to catch up. Lots of ways to entertain you, however. Example: read this wonderful review of Drag Noir that came out when I was literally on my way out of the country. Thanks, Plenitude Magazine and Latonya Pennington. The process of finding your audience can…

Reviewed: Drag Noir

Starburst Magazine has a quite nice review of Drag Noir up that highlights the good work Fox Spirit is doing and gives specific kudos to some of the fantastic stories in this collection: One of the nice things about the small press is that you tend to find more original and clever ideas amongst them,…

NoirCon 2014 – Part 4

Let me wrap things up: I’ve let them drag on too long, probably because I have been busier than a one-armed paper hanger since I got back. Or something like that. Fun ends and work returns and there is so much to do: I was grading papers on the train and sketching out a story…

NoirCon 2014 – Part 1

White Rabbit Hops

I’ve been a bit off kilter of late, but slowly catching up with things. Here are some links to places I have been flogging my latest book with all my puny might (have to work on that upper body strength). Guest Posts I’m over at Richard Godwin’s for a Quick Fire at the Slaugherhouse where…

Writer Wednesday: Drag Noir

Tilda wants to know: are you polishing your submission for Fox Spirit Books’ Drag Noir? You’ve got a month. Remember, it’s gotta be noir, but it’s gotta have drag in some way too: That’s what we want for DRAG NOIR: this is a call for stories where glamour meets grit, where everyone’s wearing a disguise…

2013 Round Up

I think of this as the “sabbatical year” but the truth is it’s only the second half that’s been that delirious wild ride of freedom time for reflection, research and writing. I don’t tend to be the kind of person who spends much time looking back, but it’s helpful at times to assess where you’ve…

Call for Stories: Drag Noir

[A repost from Fox Spirit Books] Photo via Dangerous Minds (click to see original article) “We’re born naked, and the rest is drag.” ― RuPaul, Lettin it All Hang Out: An Autobiography Drag is a broad concept; noir is a fairly narrow one. Drag can be a way of playing with gender or it can…
