SPINETINGLER'S COZY NOIR CONTEST

COZY NOIR FIRST PLACE WINNER
A TALL HOUSE

By Bill Cameron

A TALL HOUSE

I absolutely love Bill's voice, so I was thrilled to find he was the first place winner of the cozy noir contest.
just finished reading his entry, and wow!!! It's wonderful. You can read it online at the above link, or you can download it from the spinetingler site.


Bill Cameron lives with his wife and poodle in the Portland, Oregon, where he also serves as staff to a charming, yet imperious cat. He is an eager traveler and avid bird-watcher, and likes to write near a window so he can meditate on whatever happens to fly by during intractable passages. LOST DOG, his first suspense novel, will be available from Midnight Ink Books in April 2007. Bill is a member of Killer Year, the most dangerous debut novelists of 2007. He is currently at work on his second novel.

I was going to say something sweet and supportive about Bill's story and Angie's story, then I watched the smoking baby for a moment and all my niceness went flying out the window after one of Bill's birds.

They're really nice, guys. Really nice.

jason evans said...

Kelly, that must be a sign or something. I actually had a thought about you cross my mind on the train this evening. Weird....

anne frasier said...

mindy, it's hard to be sweet with a smoking baby around.

jason, i love when that kind of stuff happens. i like to think we can communicate in different ways.

Bill Cameron said...

Wow! I am so blushing! And pleased! And you posted my cover too!

And yes, Angie's story is hilarious! And that shirt, I am ALL OVER IT!

:D

Bill Cameron said...

Ha ha, thank you Jason and Kelly!!!

Kelly Parra said...

haha! Jason, yeah, it's always cool when stuff like that happens. =D

Just the other day, I thought of this guy from HS. Haven't seen him in years, haven't thought of him in just as long. That same day I run into him at the store. Crazy.

reading this blog is so much fun...then it leads me to other blogs---which are also so much fun! I'm reading as fast as I can, but all of the stories on here are so-o-o-o-o competing with my book reading time!! I love it!!

anne frasier said...

bill, i'm just excited! :D

kelly, should i confess to googling the guy i went to prom with -- only to bring up his obituary? that was a weird feeling. okay, and if people say WTF was anne frasier doing going to PROM, let me explain. we both wore all black. i even wore a black rose. which i still have. :D

dee, i'm going to buy the hardcopy when it's available. i don't want to miss anything! lotsa good readin'!
