Upcoming Event: Critical Drinking with Worider Than Thou

If you're local to the St. Pete area, come on out August 6th for the Critical Drinking book club discussion of A Tree Born Crooked. It's a book club. At a bar. This was sort of a match made in heaven for both me and the book. I'll be there to answer your questions (don't be shy!) and sign books.

More details can be found at the link below. Hope to see you there!

July Update

Just in case anyone was wondering, I did not fall of the face of the planet. (though at times it has felt like it)

I did, however, finish the first draft of my next novel, which is why I've pretty much isolated myself over the past 6 weeks.

And now I'm taking a short breathing-break, letting the manuscript simmer for two weeks and checking back in on the world. Hello, world. I'll be back in my hobbit hole again soon....

July Read of the Month

In case you missed it, A Tree Born Crooked was named the July Read of the Month by the Southern Literary Review. July has always been my favorite month (birthday, summer, etc.) so here's one more reason to love it. Cheers and many thanks to Phil Jason for the nomination and review.

We're talking literary influences, growing up in Florida and writing A Tree Born Crooked in bars. Have a listen to the podcast and then be sure to check out the many other podcasts and articles on up the site. Cheers!

4th of July Noir

There's a great list of noir and crime fiction releases from independent presses over on Hardboiled Wonderland. A Tree Born Crooked is graciously mentioned, I should add... Check it out and add some of these to your own to-be-read list (I know I will). Happy 4th!
