A little bit morbid

IMG_4780

Claud & Jim, the first two purchasers of The Dangerous Type. At Borderlands in July 2015.

Tonight I’ve been invited to meet with the Science Fiction Book Club at Borderlands Books.  They’ve read The Dangerous Type and we’re going to discuss it.  I am terrified.  What if they don’t like it?  What if they’re mean to me?  I know it’s a violent book full of prickly characters — what if they expect me to live up to that?

I’m hoping I’ll know some of the book club members, so that this will be less intimidating once I get there.  I really am curious to hear what the book made them think — and to measure those thoughts against my intentions.

As my dear friend Claud says, “What doesn’t kill me drives me mad.”

A quick wrap-up of the trouble I’ve been into:

Eric from Deviant Worlds interviewed me about space operas and succubi: http://deviantworlds.blogspot.com/2016/04/interview-loren-rhoads.html

My most popular post of late was about my quest to get 100 rejection letters this year:  https://womenwhosubmitlit.wordpress.com/2016/04/06/the-rejection-game/

I wrote about my long-term adoration for SPK’s Zamia Lehmanni album and the stories I’ve written while listening to it: https://emzbox.wordpress.com/2016/04/06/music-inspiring-writing-loren-rhoads/

David Watson at Horror Addicts really liked Kill By Numbers, the second Templar book: https://horroraddicts.wordpress.com/2016/03/31/davids-haunted-library-kill-by-numbers/

My Wave Organ piece is out in SEARCH magazine and you can download a free copy here: https://searchmagazinenet.wordpress.com/2016/03/09/search-magazine-4-spring-2016/

And finally, Margaret L. Carter interviewed me at length about Dracula and succubi for the next issue of her deliciously dark newsletter. You can subscribe to it here:  http://groups.yahoo.com/group/margaretlcartersnewsfromthecrypt
