ramblings from a mad fedora'd writer
I'm on Mythical Mondays talkin' Bad-Ass Faeries and Dragon Precinct
It's the last day of the Kickstarter for The Best of Bad-Ass Faeries, so it's your last chance to get all the cool stretch goals and other fun stuff. The project is funded, so you're guaranteed to get the book if you pledge. One of the stories reprinted in the best-of is my own "House Arrest" from the very first BAF in 2007.

I'm also guest-blogging on Melissa Hayden's "Mythical Monday" feature on her blog, where I talk about the genesis of the Dragon Precinct series and about "House Arrest."

Money quote:
Another cop show I adore is Homicide: Life on the Street, and it was that show—and the book on which it is based, David Simon's Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets—that led to my love for that most fascinating part of police procedure, both in fiction and real life: the interrogation. The verbal dance between detective and suspect. Those quickly became my favorite parts of the various "Precinct" tales to write, and when Danielle Ackley-McPhail and her cohorts invited me to submit to Bad-Ass Faeries, my first thought was to do an all-interrogation story, one that was exclusively detective and suspect, doing that very verbal dance.
