Booked. reviews My Book!

One of my favorite podcasts, Booked., reviewed The Maltese Jordans last week, giving it five stars! Times two!

Truly. Both of the hosts of this awesome, long-running crime / literary review podcast gave “The Full Five” to my new novel. I was and am psyched!! I’ve been a listener for a long time and have never heard them give double fives before.

It’s a fun listen. So check it out. Even if they know nothing about sneakers, they did a hell of a good job of talking about the book. I’m honored!

Booked Presents: An Evening with Seth Harwood

Click here to listen or download this interview. Enjoy!
The fine folks of the Booked. Podcast were nice enough to have me on last month for a far-ranging conversation about: GI Joes, Publishing, the urge to write and where it comes from, podcasting history (my own and a general one), what I’m reading, and much more.
We also talked about Patreon and The Maltese Jordans. I hope you enjoy it.

What if Michael Jordan played one secret pickup game in summer 1996 to pay off a debt so big it would get him banned from the NBA for life?

Short Story: To the Bone

41oFurbtTcLHere’s my Southern Gothic style story “To the Bone” for your ears.
Click here to download or listen.
This audio first appeared on CrimeWAV with guest host Mark L. Berry–my boy! Thanks, Mark!
“To the Bone” was first published in The Booked. Anthology back in 2013. Thanks much to the Booked. Podcast guys, who’re also on Patreon here.
Backstory on the story: I don’t know where this one came from, but I wrote it back in SF about 5 years ago. It feels very Faulkner-influenced and, since I’ve just picked up Go Down, Moses again for the first time in a LONG time, I thought of it. Where did these characters come from, Duncan and Estep? Neither of them PC or forgivable? Perhaps the story “Pantaloon in Black” holds the answer. Also, if you’re looking for a good read you could do a lot worse than to start there.
Anyway, that’s my background on this one and a reading tip for the month.
Thanks for listening! If you’d like to find more of my new audio work, head to my Patreon page here.
