One Bite at a Time interview with Dana King and E.A. Aymar

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.

Let’s Talk About Sex

In the words of Salt-N-Pepa, “Let’s talk about sex, baby.” Writing about sex that is.

With all of the talk going on right now about sexual harassment and abuse, Marietta Miles invited me and poet/photographer Susie Henry to talk about sex in crime fiction and whether or not it’s overused.

Take a look here:

Thank you, Marietta, for having me over at Do Some Damage!

Type M for Murder Guest Post

Today I’m honored to be up on Type M for Murder where I discuss what every writer needs or wants for the holidays. Books on writing! Actually, that’s a lie. At least for me it is.

A fantastic book (so I hear) that I am sadly not reading.

Thank you to Sybil Johnson, fellow former SinC/LA board member and frequent lunch pal, for the opportunity to babble on Type M.

It’s the 1980s! Love it or hate it?

Today, I’m lucky to be a guest poster on Motive Means Opportunity. I discuss the new anthology that I’m thrilled to be a part of FAST WOMEN AND NEON LIGHTS, out now with Short Stack Books. It’s a collection of stories all inspired by the decade of decadence, the 1980s.

I grew up in the 80s so for me, it brings back fond memories. I talk about what I remember the most and what inspired me to write “Besties & Blow,” a story about a young SoCal woman on her quest to see Oingo Boingo at the Greek Theater. There’s plenty of bitchin’ music, back-stabbing, and blow.

Thank you to E. Michael Helms for inviting me and to MMO for having me!

NOVELLA TALK AT THE THRILL BEGINS

THE NOLA MUSIC SCENE

I generally have two major loves in my life: books and writing. Wait – Hana strongly disagrees with me. She’s right, of course, she’s my number one love.

But aside from that, music is a close fourth, especially live music. And where else would you go for the best live music but New Orleans? It’s where I’ve seen some of the best live shows, and every time I go there, I find a new favorite music hot spot. Which is why fabulous mystery author Ellen Byron interviews me for her blog on my favorite music venues in NOLA.

Makes you excited for Bouchercon, doesn’t it?
