“You can do more with a kind word
and a gun than with just a kind word.”
– Al Capone
C.C. asks: Will there be a single book on Koni? I adore his character and so many of the others. Any tidbits you can tell us?
There will be a book on Koni, but I have to settle on his story first. There are several possibilities rattling around in my head, but none of them are “alive” yet, and until that’s the case, he’s going to have to wait. I adore him, too, so never fear.
I will say this, though…you might be able to catch a glimpse of his relatives in the anthology, MY BIG FAT SUPERNATURAL HONEYMOON. No release date yet, but my contribution is called “Where the Heart Lives” and takes place in the Dirk & Steele universe. It is a prequel story set in the early 1900’s, long before the agency was founded. P.N. Elrod has some more details here.
Let the Q&A continue – more questions?
I was tagged by Robin Owens the other day. I think I’ve done something similar before, so instead of telling 8 things that no one knows about me, I’ll just list 8 of my favorite books (a list that is in no way comprehensive, and in no particular order):
1. Freckles by Gene Stratton Porter
2. Into the Wilderness by Sara Donati
3. Sin City: The Hard Goodbye, That Yellow Bastard, Hell and Back by Frank Miller
4. Jorge Luis Borges: Selected Poems
5. Reflections on the Art of Living: A Joseph Campbell Companion
6. Burning Your Boats: The Collected Short Stories by Angela Carter
7. Residence on Earth by Pablo Neruda
8. And for pure eye-candy pleasure, anything by Robert Crais, Lee Child, Charlie Huston, Lynn Kurland, Suzanne Brockmann, and a whole bunch of other people I can’t think of at the moment.
Tell me your favorite books in the comments, and I’ll draw a name on the 12th. The lucky person will receive one of the books (or authors) I’ve listed above.
