Erich R. Sysak replied to Lexi Revellian's discussion Book trailers
"I just recently uploaded a trailer for my new book coming out in a few weeks at my website and Youtube....A former student offered to produce it and I thought it would be fun to have and might help sales a little, if at all. If I had to dig up 10k I…"

Erich R. Sysak replied to Patrick Balester's discussion Crime (Fiction, that is) Goes Global
"We have more small publishers in SE Asia than large who understand a niche and while they publish smaller print runs the royalties are much better. And you're closer to your readers because the expat communities are small and tend to congregate…"

Erich R. Sysak replied to Jason Lewis / Garrett Alexander's discussion Crime Publishers
"I like this idea quite a bit. The limitations put on us by publishers should be tested and tested. Maybe 176k is too much, maybe not. I can understand the fear of investing that much in paper for a book you don't know will sell. Proving its…"

Profile Information

Hometown:
New Orleans
About Me:
I grew up in Florida and New Orleans, but now live in the northeast of Thailand with my wife. She’s a linguistic’s professor at our local university.

My stories have appeared in Oxford Magazine, storySouth, the Paumanok Review, 42 Opus, Ducts, Pindeldyboz and Projected Letters. In 2006, the short story, “7 Cornish Hens”, was nominated for a Pushcart prize.

My essays and feature articles have appeared in numerous publications including, the Bangkok Post, the Nation newspaper, Antiquarian Book Review, Knot Magazine, and International Living.

After graduating from Florida State University, I taught writing and literature for universities in the states and abroad. I enjoyed ten years of literature classes, creative writing workshops, and composition courses. Students always impressed me with their energy and ideas. And I was lucky to meet people from all over the world, but in particular Thailand, Burma, Vietnam, China, Korea, Bangladesh and India.

These days I work a small mango farm, read and write crime novels and enjoy walks with my ridgeback dog along the river.
