Come chat with best-selling author Russell Davis

First, an announcement --


Our guest blogger next week will be best-selling author and editor Russell Davis,  former president of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America. He's written and sold novels and short stories in virtually every genre of fiction, and he's agreed to a chat with anyone who drops by. In April, Wildside Press published Russell's latest collection of multi-genre short stories, An End to All Seasons -- even including a few poems. (Russell's undergrad degree was in English/Creative Writing but most of his work was in poetics!)

We're also pleased to report that the Gunnison Country Magazine has just published an excerpt from the second book in the series, All Plucked Up. They used a scene where our twentysomething protagonist, Pleasance Pantiwycke, is trying to escape  black marketeers by fleeing on a unicycle down Main Street (what could go wrong, right?). Of course, she ends up colliding with a film crew's set for the novel's in-story movie, Silverville vs. the Flying Saucers (again, what could possibly go wrong with that brilliant escape plan?)

Magazine staff artist Joely Matuszczak provided a marvelous cartoon illustration of the scene for the excerpt (pictured at right), and the publication goes to welcome centers and chambers across the state for distribution to tourists all summer long -- talk about promo shelf life and coverage!
