Tearsheets: Audio And Visual
Very excited to announce a couple of new things, one a new book project I’m involved with, and one an interview that I did that you might want to listen to.
First the interview….Back in September, when I was part of the Bruce Springsteen Symposium at Monmouth University, I met a woman (HUGE Springsteen fan of course) named Camille Conte. Camille has been involved in the radio and broadcasting fields since the late 1980’s and is very well known and well respected. While I like about her is that she’s turned with the times and now produces her own radio show twice week, playing music and interviewing her guests virtually. (For my interview, I was in my truck -quietest place – sitting in a little parking lot under the fall foliage overlooking the Delaware River, pretty much where Washington crossed back in the day.)
Anyway, at the symposium, Camille and I chatted about my noir photography, and my involvement with TROUBLE IN THE HEARTLAND. She was really interested in both, and asked if she could interview me at some point.
We thought this week would work out well because a)I’ll be NoirCon in a couple of week promoting the book and b)well, she had other guests for earlier shows and this was when she could fit me in!
The interview went really well, and I don’t sound like I have marbles in my mouth. I ramble a bit at times, so I’ll have to tighten up some answers if this becomes a habit.
Anyway, here’s the link to the show. My interview comes in around the 4:30 mark and is about 20 minutes (I know, right?). I talk about some of the projects I’m working on, why I love noir, and how I get some of my shots. And, maybe best of all, Camille let’s me play DJ (sort of) on the way out.
The Promised Land indeed.
On the heels of TROUBLE IN THE HEARTLAND, my run of crime fiction anthologies continues.
The latest is another publication from Zelmer Pulp Press called Maybe I Should Just Shoot You In The Face.
I know, I know….that title. It’s a bit tongue in cheek (gun in cheek?) thought as it’s actually a link the a story by Chris Leek. Frankly, it DOES sound like something a couple of Jersey mugs would say to each other a few times in the course of the day.
And hey, when you shoot the gritty side of life like I do, you don’t get asked to contribute to Puppy Dogs and Unicorns Weekly.
With stories by Leek, Isaac Kirkman, Brian Panowich, Ryan Sayles, Chuck Regan, Benoît Lelièvre and Gareth Sparks, and a intro by Paul D. Brazill, it’s another strong compendium of crime fiction.
Here’s a little trailer I put together (or click here to watch on YouTube or Vimeo)
MYSJSYITF will be out in paperback soon, but is available as an ebook now. Check it out here on Amazon.
