DEAD THINGS comes out in less than a month. Paper copies are winging their way to bookstores across the globe. People can pre-order it from IndieBound, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, The Book Depository and it’s even out on them new-fangled Nook and Kindle machines.
Publisher’s Weekly liked it, saying, “Urban fantasy readers will appreciate the polished, assured writing and hope for a bevy of sequels.”
Romantic Times (behind a paywall for the next few weeks – sorry) REALLY liked it, giving it four and a half stars and and naming it a Top Pick for February. “Gritty, emotional and phenomenally imaginative, Blackmoore’s sophomore book is a pitch-perfect success.” TOP PICK. PITCH FUCKING PERFECT, people.
Over at Tree Is A Tree, Govneh gave an early ARC a stellar review, saying, “This book grabbed me from chapter one and held on through the end, calling to me from the nightstand every day I couldn’t find time to read.”
That’s high praise. And the book ain’t even out, yet.
In a couple of weeks the promo bus cranks into high gear.
I’ll be co-hosting another Noir At The Bar L.A. the night of January 20th and believe me I’ll mention it at some point during the evening. Probably several times. Loudly. While drunk.
On Monday, January 28th I’ll be on a panel discussing short stories for the Independent Writers of Southern California. I have no idea who else is going to be there, but we’re gonna be talking two things I like most. Shorts and stories.
On February 3rd, I’ll be at the L.A. Sisters In Crime meeting in Pasadena talking all manner of noir things with Gary Philips, Christa Faust and Gar Anthony Haywood.
And then we have RELEASE DAY! I will be at Mysterious Galaxy Redondo Beach the night of February 5th talking about the book, signing the book, and doing unspeakable things to hobos.
That Saturday, February 9th I’ll be in Burbank at the wonderful Dark Delicacies doing the same thing for all you folk on the other side of the hill.
And then that Sunday I’ll be down south at Mysterious Galaxy San Diego talking and signing and doing the hobo thing.
So if you can make it to any of those events I’d love to see you there.
Don’t make me beg.
