I’m up live today talking about, what else? THE NIGHT OF THE FLOOD of course! Its big release date is less than two weeks away and I’m thrilled with the amount of buzz it’s generating already. I guess it helps to pester people to interview us. 🙂
Seriously, though, everyone has been so generous with the interviews and guest blogs about our upcoming anthology. Not only with Ed and I but the other contributors as well. We’re everywhere!
So if you want to check out the latest interview about how we all collaborated, our editorial process, and why Pennsylvania was chosen for the setting, be sure to go on over to author Dana King’s blog, One Bite at a Time. And I guarantee, at the very least, you’ll appreciate the photos. I know I did.
I’m up today chatting with Jesse Rawlins over at Story & Grit. Jesse is launching a new feature called Ink-Quisitions where she interviews various crime fiction authors. And I’m her first victim! It was a lot of fun as we discussed FINN, my contribution to the Johnny Cash collection, “Missouri Waltz,” and my favorite South Bay eats.

The reviews for The Night of the Flood are coming in! Kristopher Zgorski over at BOLO Books offers a thorough and thoughtful review for our “novel-in-stories” collection, to be released March 5 by Down & Out Books!
“The Night of the Flood is an impressive collection of stories from some of the most talented writers working in the crime genre today. The intertextuality amongst the stories is truly impressive. The subtle – and sometimes blatant – references between these works will warrant and reward multiple readings of The Night of the Flood. As Hank Phillippii Ryan states in her introduction: it is impossible to know how this idea was organized, but we readers also don’t want to know. We would rather think of it as magic and hope that these authors brew up another set of interconnected tales again sometime in the future.”

It’s my first review in Publishers Weekly so woo-hoo for that! Overall, I think it’s a good review and I’m happy with it.
“Each of the 14 varied and fitfully amusing stories in this solid anthology takes as its starting point the destruction of a dam and the subsequent flooding of Everton, Pa.”
“Aymar (You’re as Good as Dead) and Chen (Cleaning Up Finn) deserve kudos for putting together a distinctive anthology.”

I’m up today over at Near to the Knuckle with my revenge tale, “A Big Appetite.” This is an online fiction site from the UK that I’ve had my eye on for a while now. I just didn’t have anything twisted enough for them…until now! So check it out. And yes, it is a bit on the weird and sick side.
