Reader News for February 25

I'm headed out to Madrid today but before I go I wanted to share some reader news. Roland Yeomans of Writing in the Crosshairs is out of cancer surgery and back to blogging. You can't keep a good writer down!

Tony Laplume has just come out with a vampire novel Pale Moonlight, available in electronic and print editions. Congratulations, Tony! A blurb is below:

Plato Finnegan is a priest and brother. His sister Fiona is trying to escape from a bad relationship with a vampire.

Rather than the springboard for another vampire romance, however, these are the ingredients for an expansive literary epic that explores the large and intimate questions of our time.

Also,I'm over at the Tiki Hut talking about my travels to Iraq and Somaliland, so hop on over and check it out!

Sean--Your mention of "Pale Moonlight" reminds me of one of my favorite books--which happens to be about vampires.

"Fevre Dream" by George R R Walker. If you've never read it, you might check it out. It happens during the riverboat days, and is full of lots of historical ambience...

Roland started back blogging the very next day! He's such a trooper.

Tony Laplume said...

You and Alex are the first time anyone's really gone out of their way to write about one of my releases. Thanks!

Roland D. Yeomans said...

FEVRE DREAM is a great book and one of the inspirations for my RITES OF PASSAGE. Thanks, Sean, for mentioning me! And thanks, Alex, for the nice words. :-)

Tony and Roland: You're welcome (x2!)

Sioux: Historical vampirism? Hmmm.

Susan: Nice to meet you too! Hope you enjoy Radio Hope, and please give me your honest opinion when you're done. As an unknown writer, feedback is vital!
