Good books lately

I’ve curled up with some lovely reads lately. Here’s a list of my recommended reads, ranging from fantasy to mystery, thriller and suspense.

Deadly Faux – Larry Brooks

Deadly fauxThis ingenious thriller features one of the genre’s best characters, Wolf Schmidt. He’s cynical, out for himself, and has a mouth that will kill him someday – but he’s also sweet, scary smart and sexy. Brooks keeps him believably on the edge of truly appalling danger, while getting laughs in all the right places. For a double treat, pick up the first Schmidt book, Bait and Switch. (Thriller)

 

 

 

Hull Zero Three – Greg Bear

Hull zero 3A wildly inventive story of a generation ship run amok. I loved how the main character grew, coming into his memories and his humanity. This was accomplished with a deft touch, humor and mystery. The generation ship is a sheer marvel, technically wondrous and fittingly strange. Stunning work. One of Greg Bear’s best. (Science Fiction)

An interview on the new book, fantasy & publishing

Wingage Dialogue

Please drop by for my new interview, podcast now at Dialogue: Between the Lines!

I had fun chatting with show host Susan Wingate today. She’s got a terrific series of interviews with bestselling authors and industry professionals, as well as being one herself. Her latest book is Hotter Than Helen, in the Bobby’s Diner series.

Here are some of the topics we tossed around:

  • Do you need an agent anymore?
  • The role of “gate keepers” in the new era.
  • As traditional publishers lose ground, is this a good thing?
  • How I used the prologue as a device in A Thousand Perfect Things.
  • And what’s with that strange and wonderful Bridge in the novel!
