Femnista Article on "The Man from U.N.C.L.E."

The 2015 film The Man from UNCLE stayed remarkably faithful to the 1960s TV series, with one major exception:  the character of Illya Kuryakin.  In my latest Femnista article, "A Tale of Two Illyas," I theorize on why they changed him so much, but kept Napoleon Solo essentially the same.  

The focus for September and October is "Derringers and Fedoras," so visit Femnista for articles on all sorts of spies, assassins, and private eyes.

Femnista Article for July/August 2016

I'm endlessly fascinated by Shakespeare's tragedy Hamlet, as you might know by now, since I blog under the pseudonym 'Hamlette' and call my main blog Hamlette's Soliloquy.  I'm pretty sure you can guess what I wrote about for the Shakespeare edition of Femnista.  My article, "We Will Show Our Duty:  The Avenging Sons in Hamlet" is available here as of today.

Our editor, Charity Bishop, has recently converted Femnista from an ezine to a more blog-like format that allows readers to interact with the authors.  I think it's a great move, as I love discussing articles with the other authors.  I hope you will too.

Celebrate Launch Day with a Giveaway

Five Magic Spindles officially gets released today!  If you preordered your copy, either as an e-book or paperback, you might have already started reading by now, as I've heard that the e-books got delivered to people's Kindles last night, and I know the paperbacks started arriving at people's houses earlier this week.  However, today is the "official" release date, and to celebrate that, I am giving away five metal bookmarks that I made myself, each inspired by the stories in this collection.

You can enter this giveaway on either of my blogs (Hamlette's Soliloquy and The Edge of the Precipice) or my Facebook author page

Getting to Know the Spindle Authors

Over the past four weeks, I have posted short interviews with each of the other Five Magic Spindles authors on my main blog, Hamlette's Soliloquy.  If you'd like to get to know them better too, here are links to all the interviews:

And if you'd like to read a sneak peek paragraph out of my story, I just posted one here on my book blog, The Edge of the Precipice.
