I had a wonderful time talking all things #pulp for a Virtual Dragon Con panel today. Look for it to go live around Labor Day Weekend. Sean Taylor, Mike Bullock, Teel James Glenn, and I joined host Van Allen Plexico for a wonderful look at the pulps both then, now, and what the future might hold for these pulpy characters. Coming soon. I'll let you know when it's live.

A new Snow Short is now available!
BEN Books welcomes author Mark Bousquet to #TeamSnow with the debut of SNOW SHORTS #5: ANGEL IN THE STORM. Snow Shorts #5 is now available as a $0.99 ebook from BEN Books. You can read it FREE with Kindle Unlimited. Find it HERE. Worldwide links below.
BEN Books is thrilled to share the cover to the next Snow Shorts story, Snow Shorts #5: Angel in the Storm by Mark Bousquet starring Snow's best pal, FBI Agent Tom "Mac" McClellan. The cover design and portrait are by Jeffrey Hayes of Plasmafire Graphics.
About Angel in the Storm:
When a cargo plane explodes over Atlanta, investigators are dispatched to deal with the fallout, both literal and judicial. Everyone except FBI Agent Tom McClellan. On his boss' hit list again, Agent McClellan finds himself saddled with a detail that's a waste of time, at best. Even worse, Mac comes under fire from a former lover, now a lawyer for a prominent crime family, and hired killers looking to put him and his case in the ground for good. How does all of this connect to a plane crash? That's exactly what Mac has to figure out before it's too late.

WE LOVE READER REVIEWS! A big ol' shout out to Hamilcar Barca for the kind words and 8 1/2 star (out of 10) review of Pulp Reality #2. You can read the full article/review HERE.
Here's a snippet from the article:
There are no “weak links” among the authors here; each tale kept me entertained and turning the pages. Here's a few things, without spoilers, that really stood out for me, one per tale:
In Old Flesh for New Bones, the breathtaking “feel” for sailing back in the swashbuckling era!
In NightVision, the deep character-development of the hero, in only 20 pages.
In To Race the Moon, the twist at the end of the story.
In Snow Chase, how well the “then/now” timeline technique worked.
In Patently False, the refreshingly new super-power.
In Fancy Cat, much better than The Shining, plus tons of plot twists.
In Kings of the Crustaceous Period, why eating crab legs may shorten your lifespan.
In The Wind-Up Kid, the technologically-believable mechanical hero.
In Ghost from the Past, the insight into the oddly fascinating Hawklin father/son relationship.
In Ace Anderson, the eerie concept of zombies on a submarine.
It's after midnight so I'm pushing away from the desk for a bit. Will be back at it tomorrow. Lots of work to accomplish this weekend.

Repost from @ michelleraabwrites on Instagram who Reposted from @meganriannwrites using @RepostRegramApp - I’m joining in on the #writerlyintrobyfacts tag!
𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙄 𝙬𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙚: I have been fortunate to write multiple genres, but I always come back to thrillers. I like mixing thrillers with action, mystery, crime, adventure. Fun stuff.
𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙄 𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙙: I read thrillers, sci-fi, comics, media tie-ins, and pretty much anything that grabs my attention. If I fall in love with a character, I’ll be back for the entire series.
𝙁𝙖𝙫𝙤𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙚 𝙘𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙨: Harry Bosch, Maggie O’Dell, Alex Cross, Dianne Fallon, Domino Lady, Thor, Captain America, Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon, Shane Scully, the list could go on and on…
𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙥𝙚𝙤𝙥𝙡𝙚 𝙘𝙖𝙣 𝙚𝙭𝙥𝙚𝙘𝙩 𝙛𝙧𝙤𝙢 𝙢𝙮 𝙨𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙨: I like my stories to move. Character is key so I get to know them first. Dropping my characters into an action/thriller plot and seeing how they get out of it is my favorite thing.
𝙃𝙖𝙥𝙥𝙞𝙡𝙮 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧 𝙖𝙛𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙞𝙣𝙜?: Sometimes. Yeah. Not always though.
𝙋𝙡𝙤𝙩𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙤𝙧 𝙥𝙖𝙣𝙩𝙨𝙚𝙧: I’m somewhere in the middle. I have a very loose plot. I know certain things that have to happen, but I let the characters determine how we get there. This allows for some interesting character developments and even a few twists and surprises. I can’t stand the word “Plantser” so I joke that they call me Captain Plotty-Pants!
𝙋𝙪𝙗𝙡𝙞𝙨𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙜𝙤𝙖𝙡𝙨: I’m a hybrid author. I write for publishers and also have my own indie press, BEN Books. I am working to make BEN Books grow, but I still enjoy working with publishers as well, especially when writing characters I don’t own. One of my long-term goals is that I would like to see the words “New York Times Bestselling Author” appear before my name.
𝙁𝙖𝙫𝙤𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙚 𝙖𝙪𝙩𝙝𝙤𝙧𝙨: That could be a long list. I’ll keep it short. Michael Connelly, Alex Kava, Gary Phillips, Van Allen Plexico, Beverly Connor, Michael Crichton, Ed Brubaker, Paul Bishop, and more. Many more.
𝙒𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙤𝙣𝙖𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙮: Writer like the wind.
𝙒𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙤𝙤𝙡𝙨: I’m a simple guy. I write in MS Word on my laptop.
