Hi, Donna! Hi, Jordan. Yeah, it's getting hard to remember all these different web places, but they sure are fun...Donna, will post another piece from Crimespree you might enjoy, it explains how I first read a Rather "Shell Scott" novel.
(laughs) I have a hard time remembering as well, can't imagine how you feel!
Oh, and I might have missed it on your page but you oughta post a link to your Hardluck stories here. (another site I just joined, but have no freakin' clue how to do a short based along the lines of the Cobert Report). Again, if the link is here, go ahead and delete my comment and check it off as bein' "blind"!
I love your kind of writing! I am, truth to tell, not quite a reformed horror writer. my true love is horror. but I also, lately have read the books from the movies, like double indemnity, that i 've loved all of my life. right now, finally i am just getting around to sending stories in for publication. i actually prefer to write novels. i've written one, a romance, but as i never read romances, i shouldn't have written one. it came out pretty sugary. although it had its moments. you know when i said you sounded like a p.i. from LA, i hadn't read your profile and didn't know your hometown was in LA! mine's new york, manhattan. but destiny and fate brought me to the uk.
all the best fo now, harry!
Hi Harry, thanks for the invite, much obliged. The Pressure of Darkness sounds fascinating, and I love Ken Bruen's big-up for it ... I'm trying to redraft a thriller-cum-philosophical novel at the moment, and getting absolutely nowhere fast ... still, if it was easy, everyone would be doing it, right? Hope the novel goes dambusters for you ... and if you feel like dropping over to Crime Always Pays and doing a Q&A to promote it, feel free ... it's for mostly Irish crime fiction, but I'm guessing with a name like Harry Shannon, and a protag called Jack Burke, there's a smidgeon of Irish blood in your veins ... Cheers, Dec
