Roundup of February Blog Tour Interviews and Reviews for The Devils That Have Come to Stay

It’s been such an exciting month! I released my first novel into the world on February 2nd, I launched it at The Bureau of General Services — Queer Division on February 13th (pictures to come!), and I’ve been all over the blogosphere doing interviews and getting reviews this month. In case you missed them, I’m just going to do a little round up right here on The Baffled King Composing.

Emma Caterine did a great interview for Topside Press’s Topside Spotlight. We talked about race, gender, and the acid western genre.

Lynn Kanter did a great review and interview at her blog Start With a Story, and listed me as one of 30 Women Novelists to Know. Thanks, Lynn!

Not focused on my book, G.G. Andrew does a series in which writers pick a book or story on a topic and discuss it. Here, I talked about Italo Calvino’s “Without Colors” for her Most Romantic Story topic.

G.G. also did an interview with me, which I was really proud to take part in. In her Writers Who Read series, I talk about the books that influenced me as an adult and child, working at Strand Books in NYC, and where I do my reading.

Kelly Smith did a short review in which she gave my book 4 out of 5 stars.

Another interview on Mary Fan’s Zigzag Timeline. In this one, I talk about becoming an author because my mom took me to the library a lot as a kid. Great memories!

I also played a fun game of literary “Would You Rather?” over on The Next Best Book Club’s blog.

That’s it for now, but hopefully more to come soon!
