HAWKEYE #1 with Kate (and Dan)

Kate: I’m bored. ::throws dart across room. Hits Hummel between eyes:: Dan: I’m cold. I hate the winter. K: We’ve watched every episode of Veronica Mars. And face it dude: your verbal skills don’t measure up to Kristen Bell. D: Huh? Wha? Oh. K: I rest my case. D: ::shrugs:: K: I need adventure! And snappy repartee! And hot California abs! D: ::flexes in mirror, single tear falls:: I don’t have hot California abs, or even cool Minnesota abs, even. But I do have the new HAWKEYE #1 by Kelly Thompson and Leonardo Romero. Kate Bishop takes up the bow and arrow in her first solo series. And believe me, her debut issue has all the adventure and...

The Angel Luis Colon Interview

Note: Interview conducted by email. Some questions and answers have been edited. Dan & Kate: Congratulations on the release of your second novella, NO HAPPY ENDINGS! What can readers expect from the adventures of your newest creation, Fantine Park? Angel Luis Colon: THE GREATEST STORY EVAH. Oh, sorry. Excited. Well, thanks for the kind words for one! As for Fantine, man, she gets put through the ringer a bit, what with having to rob a sperm bank that’s a front for a much more insidious (and gross) operation while trying to ensure her senior citizen father isn’t perished by her late mother’s old partner. Real family friendly stuff,...

Salem’s Cipher by Jess Lourey

Midnight Ink September 2016 Jess Lourey’s latest novel, SALEM’S CIPHER, has something to draw in most every reader: mind-bending ciphers that must to be solved, strong protagonists, and truly evil antagonists. I loved this book and I think everyone else will enjoy it just as much as I did, too.  For centuries, the Hermitage Foundation has been working in political backrooms and business boardrooms to take over the world. The Foundation currently exists as a lobbying firm that has their hands in the pockets of very powerful American politicians, and it views women as the greatest threat to its power. The Underground, another centuries old...

The Todd Robinson Interview

Kate and Dan: We are beyond excited for the release of your second novel, ROUGH TRADE! Your debut book, HARD BOUNCE, is one we recommend frequently (and we aren’t just saying that just to be polite). It was that potent blend of best friends/snappy dialog/and raw emotion that keeps HARD BOUNCE so high on our list. What can readers expect this time around for Junior and Boo in ROUGH TRADE? Todd: The second time around, I wanted to mess up the narrative a little bit. I wanted to explore things a bit more about who Boo and Junior are, and the hard-wired prejudices that sometimes go along with those kinds of upbringings. I wanted to challenge...
