Chester Himes in The Daily Beast

Good morning. I haven't been posting much -- not at all, actually -- lately for two simple reasons: finishing book and art projects and travelling, and frankly there isn't much going on on the site beyond self-promo and book reviews. There seems to be little discussion of real matters, those things that brought me here in the first place. Hopefully that'll change over time.

But I hope this lands in the right place. There's a terrific article in The Daily Beast today: How Chester Himes…

Presto Variations, a new book -- the third in the Ray Tate/Djuna Brown series -- will be released next week by Dundurn. Three strong reviews so far off the ARCs: Good Reads, The Globe and Mail, and the Winnipeg Free Press.

And Glass Pieces, the sequel to The Finger's Twist, the Charlie Tate/Elodie Gray series, is at the formatter's and will go up as an indie ebook in January.

Three completed novels, The Beautiful Policeman, Flowers, and A Murder in Rome, should follow during…

Response to where ideas come from

Folks, I haven't got any better at posting, but I hope this arrives in the right space. The comments about "stupid questions" makes my blood boil Hope you get this. Best, Lee Lamothe

 

I’ve been away from the site for a while, finishing a couple of projects. (No, I won’t use this to self-promote; the next book is the next book …  we all have one. The tone of this thread is too vapid and foolish and depressing to use as a marketing tool.)

Having been asked the question…

from Lee Lamothe re Pauline Atta

Folks I'm sure all you sharp crime writers/readers on the site are too smart to be fooled, but just in case ... the spamming of the site by "Pauline Atta" of Thailand is of course spam. This individual has been deleted/banned from several sites. The thought is this individual is involved in either a money transfer scam or is trolling for a husband. A quick Google tells the tale. Just FYi. Lee

Nice little interview at LitReactor with Rob Hart

Just a quick note for anyone going into tradpubbing, epubbing, or selfpubbing: An interview with Rob Hart on the LitReactor site (www.litreactor.com) is worth reading. There's a reference to whether writers are more interested in getting published than in writing well. I've always wondered about writers' motivations in general. LitReact is a pretty okay site and worth checking once in a while. Lee Lamothe

from Lee Lamothe -- a good resource for writers

Folks a colleague just directed me to www.publishingperspectives.com and I've been poking through the site. Several good articles on writing/publishing/epublishing etc. Right now there's a story by Bob Mayer (you might have to search a bit for it but that's okay because you'll find other pretty okay articles along the way). Mayer's article is called "The Hybrid Writer", essentially about trad/pub v e/pub. Lee

Re LA Review of Books site

Folks just a note: the LA Review of Books (not the Los Angeles Times review of books) at www.lareviewofbooks.org has some very good writing content on it. Currently Rohan Maitzen has an item called "Martin Beck Has A Cold", an examination of the ten-book Sjowall/Wahloo series. Definitely worth a read, and a scroll through other essays on the site are illuminating. Lee Lamothe
