The first of three interviews of me about THE TEARS OF ISIS (see just below for May 3, et al.) is now live from LONG AND SHORT REVIEWS, with the book itself to be released, if all stays on schedule, in just a week and a day.  This is the first of three planned interviews, the next to be on THE WRITERS’ LENS in late May/early June and the third by DUSTY PAGES in Britain later this summer on July 29.  There’s room for more though for any bloggers who might be reading this, just let me know — a comment here will do or go to “James Dorr” on Facebook and look for the avatar of the flying crow (the dirty bird?).  And, speaking of dirt — and more! — find out the secrets of “The Tombs” (perhaps even more about this ongoing set of stories than about the book itself except that it gives some insight into how I go about writing — and three of them are in THE TEARS OF ISIS), as well as additional details on the collection and who knows what else, by checking the interview out right here.

LONG AND SHORT REVIEWS also has its own webpage here that might be interesting too, while, if you’ve a yen to get your THE TEARS OF ISIS pre-order in now, check the publisher’s site by pressing here.  Or, if you feel lucky, you can sign up at Goodreads by pressing here for a chance of winning one of five free copies.  The deadline for this is the publication date,  May 15.

Then one more item, today brought an email from Lori Michelle at Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing to the effect that THE TEARS OF ISIS has been sent to the printer.  The next step is that she’ll get a proof back for final approval (no pages printed upside down, etc.), and then let the presses roll!

The first of two interviews on THE TEARS OF ISIS (see below, April 19 and 17) has now been officially scheduled for May 7, a week and a day before the official publication date of May 15.  Hosted by Judy Thomas and Marianne Arkins for LONG AND SHORT REVIEWS, questions will be fielded on THE TEARS OF ISIS itself, as well as on me, my lifestyle, my writing, questions both straightforward and . . . well, weird, and with answers to match.  Also the chance to win a free copy is still being offered on the Goodreads page for THE TEARS OF ISIS, a link for which should appear with the interview (though those who don’t want to wait that long to sign up can always press here now).  Also, for an advance look at the LONG AND SHORT REVIEWS site you can press here.  A direct link to the interview will be provided on these pages, of course, on May 7 when it’s posted.

Also, once I’ve finished going over the proof sheets for THE TEARS OF ISIS (only four stories to go — maybe I can get through two more tonight!), I’ll be starting on questions for a third interview, tentatively scheduled to come in late May/early June, to fall between LONG AND SHORT REVIEWS’ May 7 pre-publication warm up and Sonnet O’Dell’s interview for DUSTY PAGES later this summer on July 29.  This new one will be by Teresa Schnellmann for THE WRITERS’ LENS to come shortly after the book has been published, and will be intended as a reminder in part for those going to World Horror Convention on June 13-16, to join both publisher Max Booth III and me in New Orleans.
