New Interview for Sci-Fi July Redux

Barb Tarn, curator of the Sci-Fi July Redux bundle (ten books for $7.99 – a real deal), interviewed me for her website. Thanks Barb.

It’s great to promote the bundle (there are some bestsellers in there – with my little book sandwiched in between Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch – both major bestselling authors), and nice to talk about myself in a, hopefully, coherant way.

Book bundles are a great way for readers to pick up books by authors they love, and find some new authors along the way. It will be available for a limited time (I don’t know the end date, but there will be one), so grab it while it’s available.

My novel in the bundle, Raven Rising, usually retails for $5.99, so picking it up in the bundle is good value for money. The bundle is available directly from BundleRabbit, but also from Kobo, Amazon, B&N and Apple

The blurb for my novel goes like this: Light years from home, Starship Raven went down in an impossible blazing wreck. Crack investigator Angelie Gunnarson and her team love this kind of impossible mystery. But the Raven might have more secrets than even Angelie can handle. An action-packed short sci-fi novel from the award-winning author of The City Builders.

It was a fun novel to write, and I hope to read. It’s great to get it out there in the bundle for a bit more exposure.

And thanks for the interview Barb, and for selecting my book for the bundle.

Q&A with me at Asimov’s From Earth to the Stars editor’s blog

asimovs march april 2018I neglected to give anything more than a passing mention that I got interviewed at the Asimov’s blog, specifically about my story in the March April 2018 issue.

The interview is here. I talk with the editors about my process for creating “The Billows of Sarto”, and my general writing process, and a few other things.

Check out the other interviews on the site too. You’ll build up a pretty good picture of authors writing for Asimov’s today.

Shells Walter interviews me for Walter Rhein

The wonderful Shells Walter has interviewed me here on Walter Rhein’s website.

Reading over the interview on the site, I seem to go on a bit – I’m sure the responses didn’t feel like that. Hope it doesn’t all sound like waffle.

Thanks Shells, I appreciate it. Shells is the author of the horror novel Dead Practices, and numerous other works. Walter is the author of The Bone Sword and other heroic fantasy novels.

Jodi MacArthur interviewed on Flashes in the Dark

Jodi steps her career up a notch with an excellent interview on Flashes in the Dark. Great to gain a little more insight into Jodi – Haiku, love of classic literature, approach to writing – things which come through in her writing in subtle ways. Jodi’s new story Spindled Souls on Flashes in the Dark from a few days back reinforces all that too. Big ups to Jodi and Lori for the interview.
