"Don’t get me wrong. I see quite a lot of novels set in the Twenties, most of them being family sagas and erotica. But let’s be honest, the Twenties call for crime fiction. Gangsters, bootlegging, speakeasies, flaming youth… come on!"

Shadows Again Slight: the Soul of Noir

Bard Writes Books

"At its core, Dieselpunk is a genre of doubts. It rebels against what it sees, but it doubts what it’ll find beyond the rebellion.
This is something Dieselpunk as in common with a predecessors that greatly influences how these stories are recounted and thought. A predecessor coming straight out of the diesel era: film noir."

The Object of Desire: the Voiceless Power of the Noir Femme Fatale

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo
23 June 2017

"America in the 1940s was a time of huge social change. WWII transformed the dynamics of American society in many ways – not least, gender roles and the relationship between men and women.
In a very stylised way, drenched in darkness, mystery and anxiety, film noir reflects that epochal change."

What a publisher cannot do for you - Today, publishing is very easy, even without a publisher. Thousands of new titles become available to readers every day. This had produced a paradox: in spite of the increased possibility for discoverability, making readers aware that a title is available is harder than ever. Promoting a book has become more demanding both in terms of time and money.What a Publisher Cannot Do for You

Sarah Zama recently commented on y My Two Top Tips to an Aspiring Writer, offering her point of view on what a publisher cannot realistically be expected to do. I thought her comment was so interesting, that I asked her for a guest post. Happily, she obliged. Enjoy!
