“THE TAKE” IS RE-RELEASED

Back in 2009, a small traditional press picked up my standalone noir novel, The Take, and published it. It was my first time, so you can imagine I was pretty stoked. I was going to be published! You get the idea. Well, reality soon set in. I hated the cover, I was forced to make some […]

CHECKS IN THE MAIL!

Yesterday, I received two pieces of mail, each containing a check, that grabbed my attention. Not because they were checks, but because they conveyed a larger message. That they arrived on the same day adds to the irony. About three years ago, I got my first (and only) book deal with a small traditional publisher. […]

UPON FURTHER REVIEW…

Now that I have several books out, they’re starting to get some reviews. So far, most of them have been pretty good, if I do say so myself. And to those reviewers on the various websites that looked at my books, as well as to those readers who wrote their own reviews and put them […]

WHAT BOOK IS THAT? IT’S “THE TAKE”.

There’s an excellent website called whatbookisthat.com, which is primarily a review site. They review many different genres, and I was very pleased when they agreed to have a look at my noir novel, The Take. They gave it an A- and I’m delighted. You can check it out here and when you do, please leave […]

CHEAP CHICKS CHIRP FOR “THE TAKE”

The good folks over at DailyCheapReads.com have posted a little feature on my noir novel, The Take. This is pretty amazing, since they usually feature only very inexpensive books. The Take weighs in at $4.79 for the digital version and $12.95 for the paperback (both prices set by my publisher). They’ve got a great site […]

KIPP POE’S BLOG FEATURES “THE TAKE” + INTERVIEW

Over at Kipp Poe’s blog today, she ran a very nice interview with yours truly which also included the cover image of The Take. The interview contained some of the usual questions, but I found myself giving them unusual replies. I don’t know, maybe I just felt like being candid or something. Anyway, if you’d […]

WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS…

For all those of you who attended last year’s Bouchercon, or if you plan on going this year, you should’ve received your Anthony ballots by now. There’s a little category on there for “Best First Novel,” encompassing those first novels published in 2010. There’s space for you to write in five novels. Now, I know […]

RUN THAT TAG!

Here’s a novel idea. And here’s another one.

VICKI HENDRICKS BLURBS “THE TAKE”

Here’s a blurb for The Take, which appears on the back cover of the just-released print edition. It’s from the high priestess of noir, Vicki Hendricks: Dennis writes true noir. The Take is a fast-motion train wreck from page one, twisting the reader’s heart for the desperate souls on a ride they never chose. I consider this to […]
