If you can't embrace Minnesota Nice, you need to get the hell out of my state.
This and other contradictions are explored in my interview with Black Heart Magazine here.
Many thanks as always to Laura Roberts and the Black Heart crew. She and the 'zine have been big supporters of the Maynard Soloman series, which is discussed in the interview. Roberts also writes humor, and I encourage you to read my review of her Rebels of the 512 novel here.
See? I'm Minnesota Nice incarnate. Now scoot your arse here to read the interview.
P.S. Black Heart is looking for a fiction editor. Here's your chance to be a part of the literary mutiny.
