I have come to really enjoy the British fiction I have been finding lately. It goes deeper than just my love for Monty Python; it is the way the authors write about life, the manner in which they embrace the struggles, the toughness they exude, and the rawness of their emotions. I find that missing in much of what I read that is produced here in the good old US of A. I know it is there also but the style seems to be, to just gloss over it. The writing I have found of some of Bird’s…Continue

In addition to being a kick-ass writer, Timothy Hallinan is a true humanitarian and gentleman scholar, as can be seen in his erudite and probing interview of Yours Truly at Tim’s blog, The Blog Cabin.
Many thanks to Tim for his support and for questions that made me think about some things I hadn’t even thought about when I was writing Wild Bill.

I have to say that when I got this read it in its entirety it really flowed. My exposure to fiction of this type has been minimal. I had thought I had it all covered: digital short stories, novellas ,full length novels, but I had not read anything like “flash fiction” or stories under 2000 words that were complete stories. They are very interesting, breaths of fresh air. I enjoy the quick blast, and when a bunch of them are strung together with a common thread like Liverpool, well then it…Continue

You write muliple characters. One character is 'discovered.' Others are not. Why? Some musing of this over on my blog. If you're interested, go check it out.

Darren here. You know, I’m Mallory Petersen’s secretary and office manager. I’ve hacked into Mr. Brayton’s blog this week because I want to promote my boss’ latest adventure, Beta.
Often times she’s told me I am much more than a secretary and I do accomplish a lot for both her investigator practice and her taekwondo school. I make sure the bills are paid on…

I want to go viral. No, there is nothing wrong with me; several things have recently occurred to prompt this urge in me. The main reason is I think that Paul D. Brazill and B.R. Stateham have an awesome idea and I am hoping that word of it reaches its intended targets; in order for that to happen we need some help, a lot of virality.
To recap, Paul and B.R. were asked what exactly is noir and hard –boiled?I mean I get different answers from different people. Is it a matter of…Continue

That's what I did for one of my characters, Maynard Soloman. I have a personal profile already, and wasn't using my "author" page all that much. It got confusing and redundant.
The solution was to hand the keys over to Maynard. Not only do I have pre-written content to post from published material, but it's more fun to write in his voice than my own. There's plenty of marketing potential, too.

Yesterday, October 10,2011, I had Paul D. Brazill as my scheduled guest on the G-Zone, my Blogtalk Radio Show. B.R. Stateham was nice enough to help me co-host; it was really fun. In the midst of the interview these two great noir/hard-boiled authors came up with an idea: Why not produce a new Anthology series gathering the best noir/hard-boiled authors the world over? Is noir the same in Levittown,Pa. as it is in Moscow? Hard-boiled fiction, do they tell the same story in Liverpool as they…Continue
There are times when I get to read something that as a reader I have a level of expectation based on the author, their reputation, and their past work. All of these have planted a seed in my brain pan of what is to come, at least I hope. Let’s face it, no one is perfect; some authors miss the mark, maybe they are taking a risk, stretching themselves, blah ,blah, blah.
My point in this is: I have read everything I can find by this author; she has consistently exceeded my expectations,…Continue

Edgar and Macavity award nominated author Timothy Hallinan (THE QUEEN OF PATPONG) had this to say about WILD BILL:
Dana King's WILD BILL is a thriller that derives its thrills from the complex interactions of a group of fully-realized characters on both sides of the law -- although the boundary between one side and the other isn't always clear. Set into motion by the death of a Chicago crime boss, the story introduces us to a gallery of gangsters -- the best and most persuasive…Continue
In today's blog I had an interesting talk with Brit writer of dark noir, Paul D. Brazill. Thought you'd be interested. It's here:
