Writer Types Podcast #15

I’m on the Unpanel! Check out the latest episode of the Writer Types podcast where they do a segment called the “Unpanel” in which several writers answer one question. This episode, they kindly feature several collaborators from The Night of the Flood and ask us “what was it like working on a collaborative novel?”

You can hear what E.A. Aymar, Gwen Florio, Alan Orloff, and I have to say…plus interviews with Alison Gaylin, Owen Laukkanen, and Dharma Kelleher, and many more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Check out Greg Levin’s Scrawl Space

I’m up today at author Greg Levin’s blog Scrawl Space where he lists Five Under-the-Radar Authors of Fun, Gritty Fiction You Need to Read. It’s an honor to be listed alongside Mike McCrary, Jen Conley, and Eryk Pruitt. Their work I’m already familiar with and wholeheartedly agree with Greg on this. Now I need to check out Scott Kelly as well!

Thanks, Greg, for the shoutout! He also gives some love to the upcoming THE NIGHT OF THE FLOOD that I co-edited with E.A. Aymar.

THE NIGHT OF THE FLOOD is up today on Do Some Damage

The lovely Marietta Miles posts today on Do Some Damage about the upcoming novel-in-stories I co-edited with E.A. Aymar, The Night of the Flood. Ed and I discuss our stories briefly. It will be out in March with Down & Out Books!

The Night of the Flood

So I wrote a story for this cool concept: a novel-in-stories. Sounds awesome, right? What’s even more exciting is that I’m actually a co-editor on this collection, along with E.A. Aymar. My first official “editor” moniker! I’m on the front cover and everything. It will be out March 5, 2018 through Down & Out Books. And best-selling author Hank Phillippi Ryan wrote the intro!

Here’s a peek at it:

Maggie Wilbourne is set to be executed in the fictional town of Everton, PA. She was sentenced for killing her rapists and is the first female to be executed in Pennsylvania. The Daughters of Diana threaten to blow up the small town’s dam if her execution isn’t stayed. Maggie is executed and the dam explodes. What follows is a hellish night of crime and murder as the dam floods the small town below.

Fourteen thriller and crime fiction writers each tell a story beginning at a different hour of that fateful night. These are twisted tales of shop owners, outsiders passing through, wealthy townsfolk, serial murderers, and local police officers. THE NIGHT OF THE FLOOD is an intricate and intimate examination of the moment when chaos is released—in both society and the human spirit.

NOVELLA TALK AT THE THRILL BEGINS

Today I’m up at The Thrill Begins with the amazingly talented writers Rob Hart and E.A. Aymar as we discuss the popularity of the novella. Is it just a passing trend or is it here to stay?
