I’m pleased to announce that Turnbull House has been named a runner-up for a Rainbow Award in the category of Gay Historical!
There were an inordinate number of Bold Strokes Books authors among the winners and runners-up. If you’re looking for a good read, here’s the complete winners list.
Thank you, Elisa, for putting together this enormous endeavor every year, and thank you judges!
“Turnbull House is what the historical reader wants – an immersion into the period without overlong explanations that a character living in that time would never employ. The soot and mist and nasty weather of late 19th century London are all around and seen through the eyes of the character as he moves through a London with dangerous predators at all social strata. Every character, the purely fictional and the historical figures we encounter, are characters, quirky, interesting, real for their time. The intrigue is complex, motivations often multilayered. This was a joy to read.”
“Oh man, what a fun book! I had to go off and get the prequel to it by the end because I just needed more. This is the sort of historical novel I can read and get sucked right into. Part of that probably stems from the fact that it takes place in London at a time that is currently very popular in TV shows and film, so there’s a sense, even for the casual consumer of entertainment, of familiarity. The majority of this novel’s allure comes from its wonderfully well-written characters, though. I can’t wait for more.”
And if that’s not enough, Ira Adler’s book 3, is currently in production and will release on April 1, 2015. I know! So long to wait! The story spans two continents and several juicy subplots. I know you’ll love it!
Now available from Obverse Books: Tales of the Great Detectives, featuring my story, Eliminating the Impossible.
The City of the Saved houses every human being who ever lived… but some of its immortal Citizens need more.
For the Remakers, one fiction above all exerts its fascination: a character existing in countless interpretations, many of them now recreated in the flesh and in business together as the Great Detective Agency. These are their tales.
Look at this beautiful cover! Death and a Cup of Tea, the newest Elm Books mystery collection, coming soon from Elm Books.
Also, in case you hadn’t heard, three Elm Books authors–Jessamin Gardner, Julianna Comyn, and Yvette Franklin–are finalists for the 2014 Aspen Gold Readers Choice Award, for their stories in my anthology, Fae Love. You can purchase Fae Love and other fine Elm books at the Elm Books website.
Proud to announce that the BSB anthology Women of the Dark Streets, featuring my story The Trickster Codex has won a Goldie Award! Congratulations to my fellow authors!
