Stop 5: ALYSSA LINN PALMER Author Blog, host of  THE WOMAN IN RED #ConAudioTour

Welcome to Day 5 of the Consequences Audio Tour!

If you’re in a hurry to listen to Chapter 5: THE WOMAN IN RED, run to ALYSSA LINN PALMER’s Author Blog RIGHT NOW!

You: Hey, what’s with the password-protected post right beside this one?

Me: Run run to ALYSSA LINN PALMER’s Author Blog  to find out!

If you have a few minutes… let me introduce you to the amazing Alyssa Linn Palmer. First, in her own words:

I’ve always made up stories in my head. Sometimes I wrote them down on paper, sometimes I didn’t.

I’d best introduce myself. I live in Calgary, AB Canada. I read a great deal, write every day (almost), and I like spending time with my cats, my family and my friends. I probably spend way too much time online, but I can’t help myself.

I’m a member of the Romance Writers of America, the Calgary RWA local chapter, and the Rainbow Romance Writers (RRW).

If I’m not writing, you’ll probably find me with my nose in a book (or rapidly clicking through pages on my e-reader). I like most genres, but I have a fondness for the novels and journals of Simone de Beauvoir. I admire her determination, especially in an era when all women were really expected to do was get married and have children.  I’m still working my way through THE SECOND SEX, but I’ve re-read ALL MEN ARE MORTAL and SHE CAME TO STAY several times each. Her account of her journey through the United States in AMERICA DAY BY DAY was fascinating as well. Eventually I’m going to learn French and be able to read her work in the original.

I am an editor with Novel Needs, a full-service indie publishing shop.

Don’t her books look lovely? You can get them at all the usual places, including Amazon from whence I snagged this screen shot. I’ve read and reviewed Alyssa’s most recent novel Midnight at the Orpheus before I really got to know Alyssa, and have since read and enjoyed several of her books–I’m really, really into the Le Chat Rouge series, and if you like your romance noir, I highly recommend them.

Alyssa Linn Palmer’s blog is dedicated to “noir romance, gay & lesbian fiction, book reviews, thoughts on writing, French arts and culture, food, music, and literature” because… well, those are some of the things she’s passionate about.

Alyssa’s most recent novel, Midnight at the Orpheus (Bold Strokes Books), is set in 1920s Chicago and it is an incredible, heart-racing read. What I love most about it is that until the last page… I had no idea how she was going to resolve her love plots. So. Good.

Alyssa’s also my partner in crime in the development of the More Than A Guilty Pleasure presentation, through which we work to convince people that reading and writing romance and erotica is a RADICAL, world-changing act. Go to it, kittens! (& come to one of our panels when you see us at a conference!)

I’m so thrilled Alyssa is part of the Consequences Audio Tour, and it is so fitting that she is hoping the “Woman in Red” chapter!

Thank you, Alyssa Linn Palmer!
