Here I am again, participating in the A to Z challenge throughout the month of April. One thing I’ve learned about this challenge is that I need to keep my posts short. Short and pithy is even better.
I’m going to try my best.
So for A, I chose author Mario Acevedo, Antler Dust by Mark Stevens, and the word “ask” (just because I’m nosy). Yes, these posts will be heavy on Colorado authors.
But onward to books and the wonderful folks who write them.
Featured Author: Mario Acevedo
I have ulterior motives for choosing Mario. He will be our guest on the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Blog Tuesday (April 2nd).
Besides that, he’s a very interesting guy. His first novel, The Nymphos of Rocky Flats, introduced Felix Gomez who went to Iraq a soldier and came back a vampire.
Mario flew attack helicopters in the army. He’s an accomplished artist. And he writes vampire novels.
Featured Novel: Antler Dust
Mysteries are going to show up here more than most other genres, but that’s just because I read a lot of them and I write them too.
Antler Dust is the first novel in the Mark Stevens series featuring hunting guide Allison Coil. The series is set in Colorado.
The second novel, Buried by the Roan, deals with fracking. The third novel in the series is scheduled for release in November 2014.
Mark is a regular monthly contributor to the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Blog. You can check out his most recent post today.
And My Word of the Day: Ask
My questions for you: What are you reading? Are you a reader and/or a writer? Do you stick to one genre or hop around to sample (or try to write) a little bit of everything?
Now it’s your turn. Ask me something about books, authors, or writing.
No, if you ask something personal, I don’t promise to answer honestly. That would be just too silly. This is April Fool’s Day.
