Scandalous Interview!


eroticacover

Gingernuts of Horror has just published a wonderful and scandalously fact-filled interview with Tamara Thorne  and me. You’ll find out how we met, how we work, news about our horror novel,Grandma’s Rack,  and our erotic serial novel, Belinda. You’ll see news of Tamara’s  Candle Bay sequel, and my solo novel, The White Room.

We also give the skinny on how we met, what scares us, what influences us, our favorite brands of breakfast cereal, our preferences in shoelaces, and what makes us fight like cats and… cats.

And at least some of the above is true, we swear it.

Thorne & Cross Go Live!

Hello all,

The date and time for our upcoming interview is official. Tamara Thorne and I will be live at Authors on the Air with Pam Stack on Thursday, April 17th, 2014 at 8:00 pm EST. We’ll be discussing our upcoming projects Grandma’s Rack and Belinda as well as anything else that happens to come up.

Grandma’s Rack is in the last stages of creation and – after we do an extensive edit of our own – the manuscript will head over to the editor. After that, it will go to the publisher who will provide the final finishing touches and get it on its way. We have no idea how long these processes will take so an exact date for release is still unknown.

Belinda, our paranormally-inclined serialized erotica, is coming along nicely as well. Belinda’s story will be released in a series of installments beginning later this summer, also by Avalerion, and will showcase a few of our favorite personal topics – provocative characters, spooky vibes, and unrelenting sexual exploits.

It’s an eventful year and we’re looking forward to the release of these projects. As soon as we have release dates, we will post them here on our blogs – along with any interview links and other promotional events – as well as on our websites, which you can visit if you want to learn more about us.

The Arts and Entertainment Magazine & THE EERIE DIGEST


Earlier this month, I was honored when The Arts and Entertainment Magazine & THE EERIE DIGEST approached me and invited me to do an interview for their November issue. They asked me lots of unique questions about writing, horror, and working with Tamara Thorne. I had a good time doing it. Click on the link above to read about it.

Meanwhile, I am on the coast of California, soaking up the atmosphere and preparing to head to dinner with Tamara. The stay at the cabin was an adventure to be sure, and as soon as I am back home (with the dozen or so new storylines we hope to write one day) she and I will post about it more in depth.

Defending the Pen

What famous slasher-flick killer would I be if given the choice?

What am I most afraid of?

What was my favorite Halloween to date?

And what the hell does Madeline Kahn have to do with any of this?

The answers to these, and many more, can be found at my Bwa ha ha ha Halloween Interview at A Beautiful Horror on the Defending the Pen blog site. Give it a look-see at: http://yolandarenee.blogspot.com/2013/10/a-beautiful-horror.html

Thank you, Yolanda Renee, for the good times.

The Horror Season

Good afternoon, Cross Talkers,

Now that I have finished the parts that I can do for the website, I have more time to do what I love to do: write. Due to a deadline on a sure-thing, I am making the collaborative project with Tamara Thorne my priority. As we go along, I will keep you updated on the progress. As of now, we are well into the second act, and it’s getting more fun to write by the page. I’m falling in love with these characters and their lives, and I’m loving every minute of being able to write with one of the greats.

I also have been able to get some of the interviews and guest blogs going. One of which is on the blog of Tamara Thorne herself. Here is my interview on her Little Blog of Horrors, where I discuss horror-writing. I had a blast:http://tamarathorne.wordpress.com/2013/09/18/thirteen-questions-with-alistair-cross-2/

If you haven’t already, go give Tamara’s author page a like on Facebook at: www.facebook.com/tamarathornebooks, as you will be seeing a lot more of us together in the future, I suspect.

Have a great evening and remember: Strangers have the best candy…

Mr. Cross
