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 be slow, but when you do find them it’s so gratifying.

If you’re interested in crime writing at all, check out this issue of TEXT magazine: Crime Fiction: The Creative/Critical Nexus, edited by Rachel Franks, Jesper Gulddal and Alistair Rolls. I am very happy to have my close analysis of Dorothy B. Hughes’ The Expendable Man [PDF download].

But you want pictures, right? The whole album can be found here, but let me show you a glimpse of this amazing city (click pictures to embiggen). And there’s still the manuscript exhibit to upload!

July Sale!

On the Radio with Hannah Kate

How is it possible that I was interviewed on Manchester radio and never once mentioned The Fall?! Not sure, but I had a great time talking with Hannah Kate, whom you might know from Hic Dragones as well as her radio interviews. Last week she had Ramsey Campbell on, so be sure to check out her other interviews.

Tune in today at 2pm UK / 9am NY for Hannah’s Bookshelf on North Manchester FM (if you’re in the area) or listen online wherever you are! Find out how I juggle my pseudonyms, what I’m up to next, why I love #FolkloreThursday and what three books I’d want to have on hand for the apocalypse. Be sure to let Hannah know what you think.

Tonight: Speculative Fiction Cantina

I’ll be the guest tonight at 6pm (11pm UK) on the live radio broadcast of Speculative Fiction Cantina, sponsored by Writestream Radio and hosted by S. Evan Townsend. You can call in and ask questions! I’ll be sharing the mic with Laurel A. Rockefeller, who writes the Peers of Beinan series and promises she will do some singing. I think I’ll read from the forthcoming Blood Moon, which is the second in the Breton Lais series from my alter ego, Kathryn Marlowe. It’s based on Bisclavret, the tale of the werewolf knight, so I think I’ll read the opening chapter where he glories in being a wolf. The first Breton Lay is of course Knight of the White Hart based on Guigemar. I’m attempting to stay very true to the original tales while expanding them to novel length yet keeping Marie de France‘s breathless pace. As the reviews say:

“A great beginning to new a new series. An interesting and intriguing tale of true love, the meaning of love, sacrifice, a Knight’s honor, magic,and, yes, romance. Intense and emotional at moments. The setting is interesting, with Knights, Medieval Romance,a bit of magic, a battle for love. The characters are intriguing, as well, as will capture your heart. I will follow this series to it’s conclusion. A sweet romance with a few twists and turns.”

“At once with the high romance and idealistic notions of medieval knighthood – this is a tale replete with the grandeur of nobility and the steadfast resolve of a Knight who has to learn his lesson the hard way; that Love is not merely a fancy for the Tales but a cause worth hardship and sacrifice.”

“A masterful storyteller Marlowe delivers her story will skill, wit and clear delight. Also it starts with jousting, which is never a bad thing!! I am telling you nothing more than that, go discover it for yourself!”
