Two new courses!
I’ll be teaching two new courses this fall, one in person, and one online.
Your Novel: from Idea to Plan is an in-person course taught through Pasadena City College, in Pasadena, CA. This course will run from October to December, 2016.
Bringing History to Life through Fiction is an online course through Savvy Authors. The course will run from February to March 2017.
Elm Books is putting together a new anthology of cozy mysteries, and we need your help. Please support our Indiegogo campaign, and help us pay our amazing authors, artists, and editors.
Mischief Corner Books Quarterly has acquired my story Glow Bunny. Glow Bunny, which features a veterinarian, a lawyer, a philanderer and a bunny rabbit, will tentatively appear in MCBQ vol. 5, summer 2016.
Fool’s Gold wins a Rainbow Award for Best Gay Historical, and runner-up for Best Gay Novel of 2015!
Fool’s Gold is the third book in the Ira Adler series. The first book, The Affair of the Porcelain Dog was a finalist for the Lambda Awards. The second book, Turnbull House was a runner-up for last year’s Rainbow Awards. Check out all of Ira’s historical adventures at Bold Strokes Books.
[Fool’s Gold is] a powerful story, full of exquisite detail and characterization. It has plots within plots, and enough twists and turns that just events just hit me head on. What starts out as a sedate English Victorian mystery ends up a Wild West adventure straight from a boys own novel. It has cowboys and Pullman trains (I loved those) and I really felt I was along for the ride, like I was alongside Ira all the way.” — Josie Goodreads for Prism Book Alliance
“There’s a reason The Affair of the Porcelain Dog and Turnbull House both made my list of their respective years’ Best Books. Fool’s Gold will make it a three-peat in 2015. This series is full-immersion historical fiction. In a word: Outstanding.” –Lisa Horan for The Novel Approach
