Haunt Featured in BookRiot’s “What’s that? 20 of the best mystery books you’ve never heard of!”

Thanks so much Liberty Hardy and Book Riot for including Haunt in “What’s that? 20 of the best mystery books you’ve never heard of!” https://bookriot.com/the-best-mystery-books-youve-never-heard-of/

“Do you like your mysteries weird and twisty? Then buckle in! This is a bizarre, gritty Los Angeles noir that is almost hard to describe. “You” are the detective of this story, but good luck figuring out what is going on as you search for clues about a dead woman who haunts you.”

I BROKE A TOILET SEAT WITH MY FACE: An Interview with Constance Ann Fitzgerald

 Brian Alan Ellis

I consider Portland, Oregon’s Constance Ann Fitzgerald, along with myself, a co-captain on Team Dumpster Fire. We trade humiliating stories of trauma and drunken buffoonery like they’re baseball cards. Glue, her gripping autobiographical account of a woman raised by mom and dad bikers, is one of the strongest works of literature I’ve read all year. And if that wasn’t enough, homegirl also curates/edits the great Ladybox imprint, which publishes zines and books by female writers like Rios De La Luz, Tiffany Scandal, and Meliza Bañales. She’s punk as fuck, has cool hair, makes zines, and would probably beat the crap out of you. Basically I’d have crushed hard on CAF in high school. In fact, I crush on her now. It’s not every day you befriend someone who’s broken a toilet seat…
