Featured Authors Needed for Apex

I am looking to do a "Featureed Author" on one author a month for the rest of the year. This is for the award winning Apex Publications site.


1. At least one novel that has both science fiction or fantasy and horror (physical, mental, etc). You need at least two of those three--SF, Fantasy and Horror. The way to my heart is dark fiction.
2. A release within the last 6 months or an upcoming release in the next six months.
3. The ability to send me an arc for review.
4. The author needs to be able to answer 4-8 questions for the website.

Comment if you are an author.
Comment if you want to suggest an author.
Comment if you know an author and can give me their contact info.

Previous authors have been:
* Peter Straub
* Phil Rossi
* Sarah Hoyt
* Mira Grant (forthcoming)

No chance we could expand that to science fiction or fantasy and horror, is there? :-}

Not immediately. However, things might change in the future. If they do, I'll ping you.

So, if you have seen the new Apex guidelines that I just got today... you totally qualify now and I need to update what I'm looking for in featured authors.

Oh, awesome. :-)

Okay, I'm absolutely throwing my hat into the ring.

The Conqueror's Shadow is classic fantasy, but with some definite dips into dark fantasy/horror throughout. It was released a hair over two months ago. If you'll shoot me your mailing address, at ari AT mouseferatu DOT com, I'll arrange for you to get a copy of the book.

I recommend either Gary Braunbeck or Norm Partridge, since they do cross genre work and both have work coming out in the near abroad (and Gary's an Apex writer, though I'm not sure if that disqualifies him)

I are an author. Have you read Black Blade Blues yet? Does it qualify?

I have not read BBB yet. It may. How dark is it?

If it does, I'll happily make you a Featured Author. And, well, as I've bought the book already, you don't need to send me an ARC.
