I visited Llewellyn Worldwide today in Woodbury, MN and met my new editor, Brian Farrey-Latz, who showed me around their nice and quite sizable offices before taking me out to lunch. We talked about various aspects of promoting The Firebug of Balrog County (due out Sept 2015 from FLUX, a Llewellyn imprint) and chatted about writing in general. Like moi and many other great minds, Brian is also a graduate of Hamline University's MFA program.
I rolled up in Senor Honda, of course, punctual as all fuck.
After greeting the receptionist, I perused their book table.
Various Llewellyn titles.
They store their many titles in-house in an impressive warehouse.
Brian thought his office was too messy and would only allow a close-up shot.
We went to Cowboy Jack's for lunch.
Yep, just two literary cowboys out on the ponderosa, running down a dream.
My new novella Breakneck Cove
is out now as a Kindle ebook and available on Amazon through the Onyx
Neon Shorts series (and only 99 cents!). If you don't have a Kindle, you
can still read it on a computer using free Kindle software.
Breakneck Cove is a cozy beach paradise tucked along the
Oregon Coast, idyllic and private, but when a strange creature washes up on
shore it triggers a violent chain of events that will change the lives of two
boys forever. A sci-fi novella in the classic tradition of authors such as
Ray Bradbury and Walter Tevis, Breakneck
Cove dredges the dark waters of youth and the unknown and returns with a
new skeleton all its own.
