Linda Grimes (2012)

Pre-Fix
A Ciel Halligan Short Story
Tor Books, March 31, 2015
e-Book, 32 pages

What's Up for the Debut Author Challenge Authors? - Part 10
Meet Ciel Halligan, aura adaptor extraordinaire, in this charming introduction to Linda Grimes' "sparkling series" (Publishers Weekly).

A genetic quirk means Ciel can take on the appearance of anyone she meets by projecting their aura. This startling ability presents endless possibilities, and she's one of a rare few who has it...so you'd think it'd be easier finding a day job that lets her put it to use. Actress? Model? Ethically dubious and possibly criminal activities, like her best friend Billy? Ciel's long-time crush and fellow aura adaptor, Mark, has found his calling as a CIA agent-a life of intrigue, danger, and the perfect utilization of their rather unique skill set. It seems like the obvious choice to Ciel: She could do good and spend time with her crush. What could be better?

"Seamlessly blending humor and action...This deliciously sexy and fun-filled romp simply is a must-read."-RT Book Reviews, 4 ½ stars, Top Pick! on In a Fix


The Big Fix
Ciel Halligan 3
Tor Books, May 12, 2015
Hardcover and eBook, 320 pages

What's Up for the Debut Author Challenge Authors? - Part 10
Linda Grimes's sexy and hilarious urban fantasy series that began with In a Fix and Quick Fix continues in The Big Fix.

Aura adaptor extraordinaire Ciel Halligan, who uses her chameleon-like abilities to fix her clients' problems—as them—is filling in on set for action superstar Jackson Gunn, whose snake phobia is standing in the way of his completing his latest mega-millions Hollywood blockbuster. There's only one thing Jack fears more than snakes, and that's the possibility of his fans finding out he screams at the sight of one. Going from hero to laughing stock isn't part of his career plan.

Seems like a simple enough job to Ciel, who doesn't particularly like snakes, but figures she can tolerate an afternoon with them, for the right price—which Jack is offering, and then some. What she doesn't count on is finding out that while she was busy wrangling snakes for him, his wife was busy getting killed. When Ciel goes to break the sad news to the star, she finds out Jack was AWOL from her client hideaway at the time of the murder.

Ciel begins to suspect Jack's phobia was phony, and that he only hired her to provide him with an alibi—but if she goes to the police, she'll have to explain how she knows he wasn't really on set. Up against a wall, Ciel calls on her best-friend-turned-love-interest Billy, and her not-so-ex-crush Mark, to help her set up the sting of a lifetime.

Ciel Halligan 4

What's Up for the Debut Author Challenge Authors? - Part 10
Ciel Halligan, aura adaptor extraordinaire, has a lot of experience filling in for her clients--as them. A rare genetic quirk gives her the ability to absorb human energy and project it back out in a flawless imitation. She's hard at work, posing as a well-known and celebrated astronaut, about to make a stunning announcement on behalf of the space program...when the photographer documenting the job sees right through her aura. Worse, it soon becomes apparent that he not only knows Ciel’s not who she's supposed to be, but means her harm.

When Ciel's elderly Aunt Helen—also an aura adaptor—is murdered in Central Park, and the same photographer shows up at the funeral, Ciel starts to feel even more exposed. Then more adaptors are killed in the same way, and she becomes terrified her friends and family are being systematically exterminated ... and it's starting to look like she's the ultimate target. She turns to Billy Doyle, her best-friend-turned-boyfriend, for help, but when an unexpected crisis causes him to take off without a word, she's left to rely on her not-so-former crush, CIA agent Mark Fielding.

Staying alive, keeping control of her romantic life, and unraveling the mystery of why adaptors are being pursued becomes a harder balancing act than ever in this new Ciel Halligan adventure from Linda Grimes.

What's Up for the Debut Author Challenge Authors? - Part 10
When an envoy arrives from the secretive Russian werewolf pack, Roanoke alphas Silver and Andrew Dare are instantly suspicious. Tatiana claims she has been sent to locate an heirloom, lost by immigrants centuries ago, but she and the alphas both suspect that Russia fears the strength of the newly-united, continent-spanning Roanoke pack.

What Tatiana doesn't realize is that her pack is willing to sacrifice even their own trained spy for their goals. The drugged wine they’ve given her is too strong, and instead of rendering Silver and Andrew biddable, it nearly kills her and traps the alphas in dreams that could destroy them. The alphas must fight to wake and Tatiana must fight to help them—because with the furious Roanoke pack howling for her blood, her life could depend on it.

Trade Paperback to be published September 1, 2016

What's Up for the Debut Author Challenge Authors? - Part 10
A hitman who only kills other hitmen winds up a target himself.

Michael Hendricks kills people for money. That aside, he's not so bad a guy.

Once a covert operative for a false-flag unit of the US military, Hendricks was presumed dead after a mission in Afghanistan went sideways. He left behind his old life--and beloved fiancée--and set out on a path of redemption...or perhaps one of willful self-destruction.

Now Hendricks makes his living as a hitman entrepreneur of sorts--he only hits other hitmen. For ten times the price on your head, he'll make sure whoever's coming to kill you winds up in the ground instead. Not a bad way for a guy with his skill-set to make a living--but a great way to make himself a target.

How to Drive Yourself Crazy as a Writer
July 2015
eBook, 68 pages

What's Up for the Debut Author Challenge Authors? - Part 10
Lately I’ve been noticing a distressing excess of sanity in the creative and writing worlds. Why, new writers have even begun to challenge the Great Assertion that one must be poor and miserable to be any good! This Assertion, as you know, is the bedrock to creating meaningful Art.

Fear not. You are not at the mercy of the forces of Sanity and Productivity. For those distressed by the relentless forward drive of Efficiency, this book will provide a refreshing antidote.

Before you know it, through my simple and practical Assertions, you too will adopt the maddening and complex process that is True Writing, and embrace creative insanity as comfortably as a bat in a belfry!

How to Drive Yourself Crazy as a Writer is the satirical how-to writing book you never knew you needed, chock-full of practical advice and easy steps to fill your creative life with trauma, missteps and angst.

Take another look at the life of a writer, and immerse yourself in the hysterical chaos of the life of a miserable, starving-in-a-garret author… or, perhaps, laugh your way to the other side of writer’s block.


Fluid
A Mindspace Investigations Novella
Book 4.5
October 27, 2015
Paperback and eBook

What's Up for the Debut Author Challenge Authors? - Part 10
Good Cop, Bad Cop

A prominent journalist has been found dead, a journalist investigating police corruption. I'm supposed to be working in my new P. I. firm, but the money's not enough so I'm back consulting for the police as a telepath. Turns out this case is a doozy--the journalist was an addict, even worse than I was before I cleaned up my act. But he saved some kids from a sweatshop years ago, and then there's this corruption thing he's been looking into, which makes all the cops sweat.

The police's Powers That Be would really, really like for the journalist's death be an accident--the physical evidence even points in that direction. In Mindspace, however, it's clearly murder. With increasing pressure on myself and Detective Freeman to drop this case, I'll have to fight my way through to find the killer. And worse? If it's one of the cops who did the killing, I don't know if they'll get justice, or I'll get paid.

Fluid and Temper are companion novellas, taking place at the same time.  Fluid follows Adam’s activities; Temper follows Cherabino’s.


The Three Words Project
Stories Inspired by Readers
November 2015
Trade Paperback and eBook, 62 pages

What's Up for the Debut Author Challenge Authors? - Part 10
Banana. Elephantine. Kendama. -- What kind of worlds can be created from just three words?

In the summer of 2014, I asked the readers of my email newsletter to send me just three words, which I would use to inspire flash fiction pieces I'd write on the spot. The project ended up a lot more popular than I expected, with dozens of word sets coming in both that summer and the following winter. The words ranged from fedora to susurrus, from explosion to widdershins, and I was inspired to write flash fiction stories just as diverse in content.

From a time traveler stuck on hold while being chased by a dinosaur, to family inheritance dispute, a magician's quarrel to a private investigator on New Mars, not to mention a haunted bone garden and a Viking coming of age story, these stories run the gamut of time and space in bite-sized pieces. Each comes labeled with the three words that inspired it, both as a tribute to the original reader and as a fun glimpse into the mind of a writer at play.


Temper
A Mindspace Investigations Novella
Book 4.7
Alexandra Hughes LLC, December 2015
Trade Paperback and eBook, 100 pages

What's Up for the Debut Author Challenge Authors? - Part 10
Introducing Temper, the first Mindspace Investigations novella from ex-Homicide Detective Isabella Cherabino's point of view...

Some Clients Test You More Than Others

Getting fired from the DeKalb County P.D. was hard, and starting up a private investigation firm has turned out to be even harder. The bills aren't getting paid, and it doesn't help that my partner the telepath keeps getting called away to work for the police department that dropped me like a bad habit. It makes me sad. And angry. A whole lot angry. But when a big-time steel mill mogul comes to Mindspace Investigations PI for help finding his blackmailer, I jump at the chance to get justice for someone again.

Unfortunately, there's a lot more to this case than meets the eye. Shady union dealings. Ties to the mob. Questionable motives. Lies and half-truths. But we need the money, and I can't afford to be picky about jobs right now. No matter how much I dislike the client.

My sensei used to tell me that picking a fight was a bad idea for anyone, but a particularly bad idea for me. But sometimes you don't get to pick your battles. I just hope this is a fight I can win without crossing too many lines.

Fluid and Temper are companion novellas, taking place at the same time.  Fluid follows Adam’s activities; Temper follows Cherabino’s.

What's Up for the Debut Author Challenge Authors? - Part 10
Mage Alex Verus is back in the seventh in the “gorgeously realized”* urban fantasy series from the national bestselling author of Veiled.

I’m used to people wanting me dead. But, this time, I’m not the only one on the hit list—and time is running out…

Diviner Alex Verus finally made one too many enemies on the Council of Mages, and now one of them is angry enough to have him executed. Fighting for his life is nothing new, but this kill order also calls for the death of Alex’s dependents—and there’s no way that he’ll let Luna, Anne, and Vari take the heat.

With only a week before he’s history, Alex will have to figure out how to disassociate himself from his friends, scrounge up allies on the Council, and hopefully keep his head attached to his body.

But saving himself is going to bring him into direct opposition with his former master and the Dark mages surrounding him. And, this time, escaping with his life might mean losing his soul…

THE NEW ALEX VERUS NOVEL

I don’t publicly advertise that I’m a mage, but I don’t exactly hide it either, and one of the odd things I’ve learnt over the years is just how much you can get away with if you’re blatant enough. Hide something behind smoke and mirrors and make people work to find it, and they’ll tear the place down looking for what’s there.


Alex Verus is a diviner who can see probable futures—a talent that’s gotten him out of many a tough scrape. But this time, he may be in over his head. Alex was once apprenticed to a Dark mage, and in his service he did a lot of things he isn’t proud of.

As rumors swirl that his old master is coming back, Alex comes face to face with his misdeeds in the form of a young adept whose only goal is to get revenge. Alex has changed his life for the better, but he’s afraid of what his friends—including his apprentice, Luna—will think of his past. But if they’re going to put themselves at risk, they need to know exactly what kind of man they’re fighting for…

The mer feud has been settled, but life in South Louisiana still has more twists and turns than the muddy Mississippi.

New Orleanians are under attack from a copycat killer mimicking the crimes of a 1918 serial murderer known as the Axeman of New Orleans. Thanks to a tip from the undead pirate Jean Lafitte, DJ Jaco knows the attacks aren’t random—an unknown necromancer has resurrected the original Axeman of New Orleans, and his ultimate target is a certain blonde wizard. Namely, DJ.

Combating an undead serial killer as troubles pile up around her isn’t easy. Jake Warin’s loup-garou nature is spiraling downward, enigmatic neighbor Quince Randolph is acting weirder than ever, the Elders are insisting on lessons in elven magic from the world’s most annoying wizard, and former partner Alex Warin just turned up on DJ’s to-do list. Not to mention big maneuvers are afoot in the halls of preternatural power.

Suddenly, moving to the Beyond as Jean Lafitte’s pirate wench could be DJ’s best option.

Interview with Anne E. Johnson and Giveaway - June 19, 2012

Please welcome Anne E. Johnson to The Qwillery as part of the 2012 Debut Author Challenge Interviews. Green Light Delivery, Anne's debut for adults, is out today. Happy Publication Day to Anne!!


TQ:  What would you say is your most interesting writing quirk?

Anne:  To be at my most productive, I need to be working on several things at once. I typically have two novels and two short stories in various phases of drafting, usually quite different from each other. That way, if I get stuck on one thing, I can use a different part of my brain on something else.


TQ:  Who are some of your favorite writers? Who do you feel has influenced your writing?

Anne:  Anthony Burgess is my absolute favorite novelist. And it's not just his sardonic wit that I love. I most admire how fearlessly, unapologetically intellectual his fiction is. I don't dare write like that, but in my dreams I do. It takes great courage not to worry whether your readers know what the heck you're talking about, or even know the words you're using.

Among my other favorite authors are Ursula K. LeGuin, Robert A. Heinlein, Vladimir Nabokov, Raymond Chandler, and E.L. Doctorow. As you can see, I have wide-ranging taste. And everyone I've ever read, good or bad, has influenced my writing.


TQ:  Are you a plotter or a pantser?

Anne:  I am more plotter than pantser, but I'm not afraid to change the plan as I go along if it's not working out or if I get a better idea. I approached Green Light Delivery in an atypical way, however. I wanted Webrid, the main character, to feel very lost and confused and pointlessly wandering in the first half. Therefore, I plunged in without a plan, so I wouldn't know where I was going, either.


TQ:  What is the most challenging thing for you about writing?

Anne:  The most challenging thing is being buried in ideas. I realize that it's a classy problem, but I get very frustrated by how long it takes to turn an idea into a novel. I'd love a machine where I hook up my brain, slide in a dollar bill, and out comes a finished work. Okay, maybe a hundred dollar bill.


TQ:  Describe Green Light Delivery in 140 characters or less.

Anne:  Urban alien Webrid notices a green laser light beaming from his head. He'll do anything to get rid of the blasted thing.


TQ:   What inspired you to write Green Light Delivery?

Anne:  Having just finished a complicated historical fiction (a medieval tween mystery called Trouble at the Scriptorium), I wanted to write something bizarre and funny for adults. I kept in mind the huge entertainment value I get from reading Douglas Adams and Raymond Chandler, and tried to combine those styles into one novel.


TQ: What sort of research did you do for Green Light Delivery?

Anne:  While I love doing research, I save it for my historical fiction projects. This one was born from my imagination plus little homages to a hundred different novels.


TQ:  Who was the easiest character to write and why? Hardest and why?

Anne:  Webrid was definitely the easiest character to write. He talks and thinks like a combination of a noir gumshoe and a gas-station attendant. And I seem to have a lot of Webrid in my personality, carefully hidden from the world, of course.

Zatell was the hardest to write because she's shaped so strangely. Imagining and describing her motions was difficult. She has a large number of all-purpose limbs radiating out from a central head/body, and her face is like the center of a flower. She doesn't so much walk as roll.


TQ:  Without giving anything away, what is/are your favorite scene(s) in Green Light Delivery?

Anne:  My favorite scene happens when Webrid, a working-class man (well, alien), finds himself in a fancy hotel in a city he's never been to before. He feels so out of place amid the luxury that he sets off on foot through the unfamiliar streets, figuring that eventually he'll reach a "bad" part of town where he'll find the rough-and-tumble types he can relate to. And he's right.


TQ:  What's next?

Anne:  I'm currently working on a sequel to Green Light Delivery. I also have some novels for tweens, Ebenezer's Locker and Trouble at the Scriptorium, and there will be sequels to both of those.


TQ:  Thank you for joining us at The Qwillery.

Anne:  It's my pleasure. Thanks for inviting me!

Green Light Delivery
Candlemark & Gleam, June 19, 2012
Trade Paperback and eBook, 284 pages

Interview with Anne E. Johnson and Giveaway - June 19, 2012
Webrid is a carter, like his mother and grandfather before him. It’s not glamorous work, but it mostly pays the bills, and it gives him time to ogle the sexy women on the streets of Bexilla’s capital. Mostly, he buys and sells small goods and does the occasional transport run for a client.

Then he gets mugged by a robot.

Now, with a strange green laser implanted in his skull and a small fortune deposited in his bank account, Webrid has to make the most difficult delivery of his life. He doesn’t know who his client is, or what he’s carrying, but he knows that a whole lot of very dangerous people are extremely interested in what’s in his head. Literally. And they’ll do whatever it takes to get it.

With the help of some truly alien friends, a simple carter will journey across worlds to deliver his cargo. And hopefully keep his head in the process.

2012 Debut Author Challenge - June 2012 Debuts
In this thrilling gothic suspense debut by Sara Foster in the tradition of Rosamund Lupton and Sophie Hannah, a young mother searches Yorkshire's windswept moors for the truth behind her husband's mysterious disappearance.

THE ANSWERS ARE HIDING BENEATH THE SHADOWS

When Grace’s husband, Adam, inherits an isolated North Yorkshire cottage, they leave the bustle of London behind to try a new life. A week later, Adam vanishes without a trace, leaving their baby daughter, Millie, in her stroller on the doorstep. The following year, Grace returns to the tiny village on the untamed heath. Everyone—the police, her parents, even her best friend and younger sister—is convinced that Adam left her. But Grace, unable to let go of her memories of their love and life together, cannot accept this explanation. She is desperate for answers, but the slumbering, deeply superstitious hamlet is unwilling to give up its secrets. As Grace hunts through forgotten corners of the cottage searching for clues, and digs deeper into the lives of the locals, strange dreams begin to haunt her. Are the villagers hiding something, or is she becoming increasingly paranoid? Only as snowfall threatens to cut her and Millie off from the rest of the world does Grace make a terrible discovery. She has been looking in the wrong place for answers all along, and she and her daughter will be in terrible danger if she cannot get them away in time.

Andrew Dare is a werewolf. He’s the enforcer for the Roanoke pack, and responsible for capturing or killing any Were intruders in Roanoke’s territory. But the lone Were he’s tracking doesn’t smell or act like anyone he’s ever encountered. And when he catches her, it doesn’t get any better. She’s beautiful, she’s crazy, and someone has tortured her by injecting silver into her veins. She says her name is Silver, and that she’s lost her wild self and can’t shift any more.

The packs in North America have a live-and-let-live attitude, and try not to overlap with each other. But Silver represents a terrible threat to every Were on the continent.

Andrew and Silver will join forces to track down this menace while discovering their own power and their passion for each other.

Green Light Delivery is a fascinating, fresh take on sci-fi that pairs the nonstop action and intrigue of Raymond Chandler’s noir novels with a completely alien setting, spanning worlds and introducing us to creatures with a hundred ears, poisonous bones, or radial symmetry instead of bilateral. It’s full of adventure and humour, and will satisfy anyone looking for a space opera that’s a little out there.

2012 Debut Author Challenge - June 2012 Debuts
Nobody leaves Osiris. Osiris is a lost city. She has lost the world and world has lost her . . .

Rising high above the frigid waters, the ocean city of Osiris has been cut off from the land since the Great Storm fifty years ago. Most believe that Osiris is the last city on Earth, while others cling to the idea that life still survives somewhere beyond the merciless seas. But for all its inhabitants, Citizens and refugees alike, Osiris is the entire world--and it is a world divided.

Adelaide is the black-sheep granddaughter of the city's Architect. A jaded socialite and family miscreant, she wants little to do with her powerful relatives--until her troubled twin brother disappears mysteriously. Convinced that he is still alive, she will stop at nothing to find him, even if it means uncovering long-buried secrets.

Vikram, a third-generation storm refugee quarantined with thousands of others in the city's impoverished western sector, sees his own people dying of cold and starvation while the elite of Osiris ignore their plight. Determined to change things, he hopes to use Adelaide to bring about much-needed reforms--but who is using who?

As another brutal winter brings Osiris closer to riot and revolution, two very different people, each with their own agendas, will attempt to bridge the gap dividing the city, only to find a future far more complicated than either of them ever imagined.

Osiris is the beginning of an ambitious new science fiction trilogy exploring a near-future world radically transformed by rising seas and melting poles.


The Age of Miracles 
Author:  Karen Thompson Walker
Format:  Hardcover, 288 pages
Publisher:  Random House, June 26, 2012
Price:  $26.00
Language:  English
Genre: SciFi - Dystopia
ISBN978-0-8129-9297-7

2012 Debut Author Challenge - June 2012 Debuts
With a voice as distinctive and original as that of The Lovely Bones, and for the fans of the speculative fiction of Margaret Atwood, Karen Thompson Walker’s The Age of Miracles is a luminous, haunting, and unforgettable debut novel about coming of age set against the backdrop of an utterly altered world.

“It still amazes me how little we really knew. . . . Maybe everything that happened to me and my family had nothing at all to do with the slowing. It’s possible, I guess. But I doubt it. I doubt it very much.”

On a seemingly ordinary Saturday in a California suburb, Julia and her family awake to discover, along with the rest of the world, that the rotation of the earth has suddenly begun to slow. The days and nights grow longer and longer, gravity is affected, the environment is thrown into disarray. Yet as she struggles to navigate an ever-shifting landscape, Julia is also coping with the normal disasters of everyday life—the fissures in her parents’ marriage, the loss of old friends, the hopeful anguish of first love, the bizarre behavior of her grandfather who, convinced of a government conspiracy, spends his days obsessively cataloging his possessions. As Julia adjusts to the new normal, the slowing inexorably continues.

Guest Blog by Anne E. Johnson - Green Light Delivery as a Sci-Fi Stew

Please welcome Anne E. Johnson to The Qwillery as part of the 2012 Debut Author Challenge Guest Blogs. Green Light Delivery, Anne's debut for adults, will be published in June.


Green Light Delivery as a Sci-Fi Stew
by Anne E. Johnson

I didn’t set out to write Green Light Delivery as science fiction. At first it was a “bizarro” exercise, and I tried to create something utterly and inexplicably weird. But after about three paragraphs of the first draft, I realized that I wanted a cogent, if wacky, story. That meant human―or at least humanoid―behavior and motivations for the characters. But I was determined to have plenty of weird and wonderful in there, despite a logical narrative arc.

I didn’t even know whether Webrid, the main character, was human when I first started writing. As it turns out, nobody in Green Light Delivery is human because it takes place in an alternative universe. That alone, by some definitions, makes it science fiction.

Before I knew it, I was writing a sci-fi adventure! Some might even call it a space opera, because it involves an entire planetary system.

The scientific element of the novel is non-technical. This is partly due to the fact that the world is seen through Webrid’s eyes, and he doesn’t know a thing about technology. And, although his main problem is a science-based one (there’s some sort of high-tech laser embedded in his skull), he doesn’t understand what’s going on. Lucky for him, some of his friends paid attention at school!

Many people notice a “noir” element to the writing of Green Light Delivery. This does not mean it’s a detective story! There is no private eye. Webrid is stuck solving his own mystery. But there are choices I made in language and perspective that reflect a “pulp” sensibility. For one thing, this involves a certain kind of dark, sarcastic humor, which I do try to control when interacting with people in real life, but which I always have at my disposal.

Setting and character type are also essential for a noir feel. Much of Green Light Delivery takes place in the gritty city of Bargival, where Webrid lives and works, carting items in a hand-pushed cart. He’s an intensely urban (decidedly not urbane) character, who feels uncomfortable among the rich, the educated, or the rural. And he surrounds himself with tough types. At one point he runs into a drug dealer in an alley, and is relieved to meet someone he can relate to.

And then there’s Webrid’s general attitude. Definitely based on the noir model. He has an eye for the ladies, a sardonic world view, and some nagging issues of self-esteem. I didn’t spend my college years reading all those Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett novels for nothing! I did make the decision not to use first-person, though. Unlike Chandler and Hammett, say, who become Philip Marlowe and Sam Spade, I wanted to give the reader a slightly wider-angle view of the proceedings. However, even in the third person, Webrid’s heart and mind are the only ones truly exposed to the reader.

Green Light Delivery was fun to write, and I think readers will find influences from many types of literature in its pages. The reason I became an author of fiction is because I so love reading it! And I’m a sponge: once I discover a particular author or style or genre, it’s part of me forever.
