"I suspect that few writers would survive the back-to-back reading of their works as well as Molly Gloss does." Read the whole post (mighty nice) at The Millions: A Year in Reading
Seems only fair, if I'm posting laudatory reviews I should also post the less-than-laudatory. I've been assured this is not a BAD review. I choose to think this reviewer just read a different book from the one I thought I was writing. Here it is.
Very happy about this review, which will appear in the November issue of Historical Novels Review. "Although not a fan of cowboy movies, I am a big fan of this book." Read the review here.
"FALLING FROM HORSES follows two young dreamers fresh off the ranch, as they try making it in a Hollywood of Westerns and horse operas." Full review here.
Megan Labrise interviewed me for Kirkus Reviews. A couple of spoilers for the novel, so be aware. But I happen to be someone who flips to the last page of a book as soon as I start reading. So, y'know, spoilers are my thing. You can read the interview here.
On the Amazon website, if you scroll down the page for Falling From Horses you'll see an email exchange between me and Kelly Link. We had fun doing it. Kelly is the author of the story collections Get in Trouble, Stranger Things Happen, Magic For Beginners, and Pretty Monsters. She's way cool.

Kirkus is famous for being snarky, so I'm relieved they lapsed into snark only briefly before laying down the praise. Read the review HERE.
With Bette Lynch Husted and Pamela Reese.
This pumpkin field is across the road from the pasture where we keep our horses. They are small pumpkins, for food I think, rather than jack-o-lanterns. They're a month early this year, ready for harvest in mid-September.
