Lady Knights on the Mean Streets: Modern Women in Hard-Boiled Crime Fiction-Guest Post by Thad Brown, one of "The Dark Pages Deadly Dozen"

What we’ve come to call the “hard-boiled” tradition in crime fiction, as it’s lovingly explored and chronicled here in Crime Wave Magazine, originated in the American pulps of the 1920s, and flourished through the rise of the paperbacks in the 1950s.  (As I’m using the term “hard-boiled” here, it denotes crime fiction that involves a significantly greater component of violent or potentially violent action than the traditional mystery, is less focused on cerebral deduction, and may not…

Querying With PixApple?

Querying with PixApple? Really?


Yes, you read correctly. I have always subscribed to the dictum that familiarity breeds contempt (more often than not). So, with that in mind, I've decided to take a novel (pun intended) approach to querying a few agents regarding my recent novel (eBook)…

Infinite sales!

I just did something that I’ve never done before. Something

I ignorantly hoped to avoid but always knew would happen. I just paid hard

earned dough to promote my books. Well, not my books individually, but my blog

and author’s site. I signed up for two marketing ideas that I believe may

actually work. I also have a third PR person in line to do search engine

optimization. Who would have thought being a writer and selling books could get

so complicated. The first site…

The Little Madeleine by Mrs Robert Henrey

As a historical novelist I enjoy reading about eras which have gone with the wind. I have just re-read The Little Madeleine by Mrs Robert Henrey, which relates the joys and sorrows of Madeleine, a French girl, loved by her mother, who earned a living as a talented seamstress, and her father, ‘a picturesque figure from the Midi.’

"Mrs Henrey’s autobiography is the story of her girlhood in Montmartre and the wasteland near the Paris fortifications, or city walls,…

Thoughts on Creating Believable Historical Characters

So far, I have only written historical novels set in England, but regardless of when and where a novel is set the characters must be believable.

Before I start writing a historical novel I name my characters. I find The…

Starting a new novel

It’s happened! I’ve finished a new book (DREAM TRAVELER) and

it’s about to go live. So, what do I do now? Well, besides all the marketing

and promotion I’m planning in the coming weeks, it’s time to start a new novel.

I’ve had this one simmering in my brain for a long time; about thirty years.

What’s it about? Well, I learned long ago not to talk-out a book before you’ve

put it to page, but I have come up with a tagline. ‘You and me and the world we

live in is nothing…

Big changes for this author


My first book Sensitivity 101 for the Heterosexual Male was re-released by my publisher as Sensitivity 101 the Search for Acceptance back in July 2011. It has since been picked up by a traditional publisher and will be re-issued again in early 2012 under another name and cover. This gave me the opportunity to re-edit and add some new and exciting twists to it. Because of this, the book will only be on Amazon until the first of the…

Chapter 1: Catalytic Conversion

I was seven years old when my father accepted Christ. Up until that point, my family had been largely secular. With the exception of weddings and funerals, my brothers and I had never even set foot in a religious establishment. But my father brought home the Bible as if it were a present for us. My brothers, Eli and Zach, who were eleven and thirteen at the time, eventually came to regard this alien theology as a new game, with its fascinating stories and rules (not to mention bloodlust), or…

Gratitude Grist

Everything that happens is fodder for the creative process.  Good and bad, happy or sad.

A writer writes.  I'm a writer.  I write.  I do that.  So the things that happen to me are grist for gratitude. They can't help but be.  If I didn't write, I'd either shrivel up inside . . . or explode like a pressure-cooker with no pressure release valve.  I write about the good things and the bad things. 

Don't believe me?  then try out my blog and check out my archives.  …

Benjamin Sobieck on Maynard Soloman


  Maynard Soloman is an old crusty badger of a detective with a potty-mouth straight outta 1932. Throughout his short story series, he's had some big cases. Yet none of them come close to his most recent in the e-book, Maynard Soloman Proves Santa Claus is Real.

Exactly how he does this involves a drunk hound dog, an eccentric church and a baseball bat-wielding thief. Oh yeah, and some reindeer hooves on the roof of his Winnebago.

I won't divulge any details, but I…

Writing and the holidays

Happy Thanksgiving to all! That said, I have to tell you

that since I’m in the service industry, I work every Thanksgiving. So today,

black Friday, is my day to celebrate. Oh it’ll be a hoot. Got the family coming

over, got friends of the kids stopping by, got lots of food and drink. By the

time most of you read this I’m going to be knee-deep in overindulgence. But for

now, I must write. This post is only the beginning of about two hours I’ve set

aside this morning to…
