I wax rhapsodic on vultures today on Mary Robinette Kowal’s Blog for that book-type thing I’m calling My Loaded Gun, My Lonely Heart that came out on November 3 to book retailers everywhere. See what all the fuss is about, why don’t you.
Joe Mynhardt over at Crystal Lake was kind enough to feature me over at “The Deep End” blog where I talk about psychopaths with hearts of gold and human monsters in support of My Loaded Gun, My Lonely Heart, released this November 3. Stop by and give it a read and check out all the other entries where authors discuss facets of their stories and their writing process.
Today I’m talking about the things that scare me at Nicholas Kaufmann’s blog in support of My Loaded Gun, My Lonely Heart, which drops today at booksellers and the like.
At “The Scariest Part,” I talk about the terror of the cautery in surgery. For interested parties, you can see an approximation of the cautery I talk about at Tim’s The Old Time Junk Shop Etsy page. It’s the three items on the right hand side.
It’s official the Goodreads Giveaway for My Loaded Gun, My Lonely Heart is underway, now through October 11th!
” Vitus’s tragic past and newfound humanity make him a compelling figure, and his wry narration, given to moments of self-loathing and snark, at times reads like a fever dream shot through with startling moments of sanity. This emotionally charged genre-buster serves up more than a few good punches and won’t disappoint fans of dark fantasy laced with pitch-black humor. “
From the review:
“Femmes fatales, double-crosses, and blood-spattered action characterize this hard-boiled homage to zombie fiction… In this terrifying moral battleground, the dead are superior to the “black-suited men with dead eyes” orchestrating human affairs. Rose’s debut achieves a unique, hard-edged voice strengthened by clipped prose.”
The rest of the review is available here.
Vitus returns this November in My Loaded Gun, My Lonely Heart.
