There is a LOT going on and I need to be good about promo and whoring and pimping.
So what’s new?
Welp, we got us a new short story with ‘Kiss Me on The Bus’ in the outstanding new anthology, ‘Waiting to Be Forgotten: Stories of Crime and Heartbreak, Inspired by The Replacements‘.
You can buy it by clicking the title.
You can also check out an interview HERE with Tom Leins about the whys and hows regarding my contribution to what is an excellent collection of wonderful stories.
My Derringer-nominated short ‘Separation Anxiety‘ is also available to read for free over at Great Jones Street. It’s a lovely new app built to be the Netflix of short stories. You can find stories from a metric fuck ton of incredible authors old and new (Bullet to The Brain, my personal favorite short story of all time is now available for me to read every two weeks at a whim – LOVE IT). Go download the app – it’s incredibly worth it.
Last and certainly not least. next week sees the release of my new novella, ‘No Happy Endings’. The blog’s jammed with info on how to order and what people I paid (in fake money – HA) had to say about the book. So far, so good.
Still, check out the long list of articles and promos we’re running. I’ll be updating as stuff releases in case you’re a weirdo that needs a collected batch of links regarding my work…
I AM THAT WEIRDO.
SW Lauden was kind enough to interview me over at his blog this week. CLICK HERE to read more of my pretentious self drone on about my work and other fun stuff. While you’re at it, check out SW’s latest, Grizzly Season. It’s on my TBR pile, but if it matches up to the first in the Greg Salem series, Bad Citizen Corporation, it’s going to be a hell of a ride.
Alex Segura had me over on his newsletter (which you can sign up for HERE). Beyond an interview, Alex runs really cool pieces from other writers, talks about what he’s currently reading/writing/listening to, and provides great links to articles and other pieces from great authors. Worth signing up for! You can also check out Alex’s books HERE.
Spinetingler did a very cool breakdown of No Happy Endings and let me get my spiel out there earlier this month. Go read that HERE. Good folks over there and some great stories too. Take the time to browse their archives!
Dana King was kind enough to let me answer a few questions over at One Bite at a Time. Had a blast answering those questions. While you’re there, check out his books Worst Enemies and Grind Joint from my publisher, Down & Out Books!
Over at Crimespree, Dan & Kate Malmon grilled me (THE INTERVIEW) and did me the honor of dropping a REVIEW for No Happy Endings as well. Verdict: click the goddamn links. Give Crimespree some love and attention too (SUBSCRIBE, is what I’m angling at). They do so very much for the crime fiction community and deserve the love in return.
At Do Some Damage I talk about the eternal void that is releasing a finished work into the wild. The worst of it: work never feels finished.
There’ll be more added as we get closer to release day and beyond!
Lastly, if you’re in the NYC area and need something to do on December 9th, come on out to the release party for No Happy Endings! I’ll be at The Mysterious Bookshop (terrified) and enjoying the company of readers and writers alike. More eyes are always welcome.
Until then, be easy!
