I plan to write 400-500 words a day in my WIP. Seems I've turned a corner and I'm starting to believe I can finish this novel (that I started in 2015).

I think I can do that. I’ll be between a panel and the opening ceremony … where I’ll hear about the Barry and the Macavity awards. So basically, I’ll be a nervous wreck and greatly in need of a drink. : )

How does that sound?

Hi Dharma,
I would love to be interviewed (says the introvert who hates to leave home). My two NYPD Chiara Corelli mysteries, A Matter of Blood and the Blood Runs Cold, meet your criteria. A Matter of Blood, the first in the series, was a 2019 Lambda finalist.

They are both available on Amazon, B&N and Bellabooks.com but I would be happy to send you an ebook or paperback of either if you’re interested.

Hi everyone,

As I’ve mentioned previously, I’ve started a podcast called THE GRITTY GRITTY, which highlights #OwnVoices in crime fiction. I am looking for more people to interview. 

My criteria for interviewees is as follows:

  • You are a member of a marginalized community (person of color, LGBTQ+, disabled, etc.)
  • Your protagonist is a member of the same group
  • Your book is crime fiction (mystery, thriller, noir, suspense, etc.)
  • Your book cover was designed by a professional cover designer (not your cousin with a pirated copy of Photoshop)
  • Your book was edited by a professional editor (not your other cousin with an English lit degree)


If any of you meet these criteria and would like to be interviewed, let me know. Also, let me know how I can get a copy of your latest novel, so I can read it. 

You can find THE GRITTY GRITTY at http://thegrittygritty.libsyn.com/website and on Apple podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, etc. So far I have one episode up, where I interviewed Tori Eldridge. I’ve interviewed Michael Nava for the second episode, and it will be up in a couple of weeks.

Hi, Dharma

All five of my novels meet your criteria, including the most recent, A Date to Die. I’m happy to send a bio to you off-list so you know a little about my publishing history. I’d love to be on your show, of course. I can send the e- book to you directly. 

Thanks for starting the podcast!

Hi Dharma,

Apologies if I'm answering twice - I think the first one got eaten but I'm not positive :)

I would love to be interviewed. My newest Sid Rubin Mystery, SAY HER NAME, releases on December 10th. That said, my series is a Young Adult mystery series, so I don't know if that's in your wheelhouse?

Love to chat further with you - stefanideoul@...

Either way, congrats on your venture!

Thanks to everyone who has submitted so far! You can check out the site here: www.queercrimewriters.com

For now I'm using the books2read platform, which is great--except it requires that the books be available as ebooks. Otherwise it can't parse the link. In the event that your book is not available as an ebook at this time, it unfortunately won't show up. I'm trying to figure out a workaround for that though :)
