Guest Post Roundup for July and August

My most recent novel, The Duke & the Pirate Queen, gets a brief mention over at RT Book Reviews.

I’ve been doing a lot of guest blogging this summer for a couple of different sites.

I compared Arthur Morrison’s fictional detective Martin Hewitt, Investigator to his contemporary Sherlock Holmes, and gave my thoughts on the Top 5 Sex Scenes in SF/F.

Also, I wrote previews for quite a few upcoming releases.

Hidden Paradise by Janet Mullany, erotica set at a weekend “living in the Georgian period” retreat.

Blackwood by Gwenda Bond, a young adult fantasy novel whose plot involves mass disappearances on Roanoke Island.

Stranger in the Room by Amanda Kyle Williams, a mystery set in Atlanta, and featuring a female Chinese-American private detective.

Z-Rated, the newest erotica anthology edited by Zane.

Syndrome E by Franck Thilliez, translated from the French. Keep an eye out for the upcoming movie.

The Girl in Trouble by Kathryn Miller Haines – a YA mystery set during WWII.

Long Lankin by Lindsey Barraclough – a 20th-century Gothic mystery.

That Thing Called Love by Susan Anderson, one of the first few contemporary romance authors I ever read.

Sammy Keyes and the Power of Justice Jack by Wendelin Van Draanen, a Middle Grade mystery novel.

Dangerously Close by Dee J. Adams, a romance about a Rock Star in Hiding.

Close Your Eyes by Iris and Roy Johansen, a thriller in the Kendra Michaels series. Michaels is a sort-of-Holmesian detective.

The Formula for Murder by Carol McCleary – a mystery with several historical figures as characters, including the protagonist, reporter Nellie Bly.

I also spent some time recently updating and adding links to my For Writers page. Feel free to comment if you have any suggestions. Thanks!
