A Conversation with Matt Doyle!

Over the summer I had the good fortune to chat with fellow author Matt Doyle, of Matt Doyle Media: Taking a Positive Look at Pop Culture. That tag line was the first thing that drew me to Matt’s website, because I often find myself frustrated by the way some fans reduce fandom to an exercise … Continue reading »

Promotions Pay Off

I’ve never worked as hard to promote a book as I have with A Fall in Autumn. In the two and a half months since it was published – no, two and three-quarters – I’ve directly queried something in the neighborhood of 150 outlets seeking reviews. I nearly got reviews by NPR’s All Things Considered, … Continue reading »

Quandaries & Opportunities

I have an interesting opportunity and a quandary, and I’d like to describe them to you. One of the goals I set for myself when I published PERISHABLES was to experiment with different means of promotion via The Perishables Project. As part of the project, with each novel I’ve set a goal of selling ten … Continue reading »

WRAPPED IN BLACK Interview: Aaron Gudmunson, “Pig Roast”

Aaron Gudmunson’s “Pig Roast,” which is the closing bookend for Wrapped in Black: Thirteen Tales of Witches and the Occult, is one of the most delightfully disturbing and creepy premises in the whole thing. I might or might not (spoilers: might!) have spent a huge amount of time in the ’90s reading and posting to alt.ketchup … Continue reading »

WRAPPED IN BLACK Interview: Shenoa Carroll-Bradd, “She Makes My Skin Crawl”

Shenoa Carroll-Bradd is a very gifted writer with an absolute boatload of ideas, interests and ambition. She writes short fiction, screenplays, graphic novels – you name it. If words can make it happen, Shenoa is interested in making those words. She also has a tremendous sense of fun about her as a writer, perhaps best … Continue reading »

WRAPPED IN BLACK Interview: Solomon Archer, “Into the Light”

I’m going to preface this interview by saying Solomon Archer – who once asked me to call him Archer – is absolutely one of the most interesting authors with whom I’ve shared a table of contents and I don’t mean that as a backhanded compliment: I mean there are ways in which he is genuinely mysterious and intriguing … Continue reading »

WRAPPED IN BLACK Interview: Mike Lester, “Not This Time”

It’s my tremendous pleasure to interview Mike Lester, an accomplished author with work both long-form and short-form to his credit and who is a fellow contributor to Wrapped in Black: Thirteen Tales of Witches and the Occult! Michael: Wrapped in Black is an anthology of stories about witches and the occult so let’s get right down … Continue reading »

WRAPPED IN BLACK Interview: Rose Blackthorn, “Beautiful, Broken Things”

Today I’m posting my interview with the incredibly talented and prolific Rose Blackthorn, whose story “Beautiful, Broken Things” in Wrapped in Black: Thirteen Tales of Witches and the Occult is absolutely captivating. Reading the first few paragraphs I knew I needed to read the rest of this story. Michael: Wrapped in Black is an anthology of stories about … Continue reading »

WRAPPED IN BLACK Interview: James Glass, “The Rising Son”

Next up in my series of interviews for Wrapped in Black: Thirteen Tales of Witches and the Occult is none other than James Glass, whose incredibly clever and well-told story “The Rising Son” is featured and who likewise was a co-contributor to Wrapped in White. Michael: Wrapped in Black is an anthology of stories about witches and … Continue reading »

WRAPPED IN BLACK Interview: Michael G. Williams, “Stories I Tell to Girls”

Originally I was going to skip my own Wrapped in Black: Thirteen Tales of Witches and the Occult interview. I mean, it would be a little egocentric, right? At best it would be all navel-gazing-y and at worst it would just be me sitting around stroking my own thigh under the table. But Sekhmet Press … Continue reading »
