"You know what? The bastard blows me out of the water. This guy writes Maine like Ardai writes New York. If you're not reading him, you don't know what you're missing." --Chris F. Holm, author of "The Collector" series, The Killing Kind, and Red Right Hand.

"A refreshingly new voice in noir." --Ed Kurtz, author of Nothing You Can Do and The Rib From Which I Remake the World.

"A glorious boilermaker of noir and East Coast gothic. The action is taut as a sprung snare and Bagley tightens the screws with every page." -- Laird Barron, author of Swift to Chase and Blood Standard.

Notes from the Backside of Nowhere

There hasn't been much of anything to report here lately. I'm writing the first draft of a new novel while revising some older work. I don't have anything new coming out for a while. I'm teaching two writing courses this fall and trying to snag some more freelance work.

And that's pretty much it. School begins September 2. My youngest starts kindergarten this year and my oldest hits the sixth grade. With the house empty every morning, I ought to be able to get a lot of work done.

(The picture was taken from the edge of my front yard.)

My life as a writer really changed once my youngest went to kindergarten. Yours will too.

Some beautiful country there.

Some beautiful country, indeed. Best of luck with your coming writing -- and I hope the silence is shattered in a big way for you when BWB takes the world by storm.

What a lovely scene. If I could look out the window and see that, I would probably never write a word. I would just keep gazing.

Just wanted to let you know that as promised in my recent review of the anthology Uncage Me, I have purchased a copy and will be giving it away to some lucky reader on the Woman of Mystery Blog. Here is the link:


Giveaway entries will be accepted until Saturday at noon.

That's great, Terrie. I'll spread the word.
