Earlier this week my friend and author of the outstanding Lovecraftian urban fantasy series The Bell Forging Cycle, K.M. Alexander, interviewed me for the inaugural installment of his author interview series Prose Palaver. We took a deep dive into my process while writing RADIO, how living abroad and travel influenced my writing, some literary, musical, and mythological influences for the story, and more. Click below to check it out.
So we’re all stuck at home, alternating between hyper-focus on the latest information about the pandemic and escape into entertainment. For me, the latter has been as essential as the former.
RADIO was meant to be released May 1st but the book is ready and the wait seems needless at this point. I’d rather give you readers the opportunity to add RADIO to your quiver of distractions sooner rather than later.
Pre-orders for Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, and Kobo ereaders begin today and will last for one week until RADIO officially launches on Saturday, April 4th. It will sell for the special launch price of $3.99. RADIO will be available for other ereaders starting April 4th and the paperback will follow in the coming months.
I’m excited for the opportunity to expose RADIO to the world, despite the fact that we humans need to do the exact opposite.
Happy reading and I hope you enjoy RADIO.
Today’s a big day for RADIO, my fantasy noir novel. My amazing graphic designer/wife completed the temporary cover that will be used for my ARC’s (advance reader’s copies). For those unfamiliar with RADIO, here’s the elevator pitch.
In 1928’s Paris, betrayal forces the god Marduk into the new, opium-riddled body of a jazz musician. Desperate, he must rely on the few friends he has left — and one terrifying enemy — to stop those like him from weaponizing the religious imagery they’ve milked for centuries by abusing a technology he created.
RADIO navigates the jazz, lights, and energy of the Lost Generation’s Paris to tell a dark, vivid tale of treachery and revenge, struggle and survival, love and loss. If you’re interested in RADIO and want to stay informed as we near its spring 2020 launch and beyond, you can follow me on Twitter, and Instagram both under @jushingwrites, or follow me here at jrushingwrites.com
