Werewolves out in the World part III

IMG_1222

If you want to peel back the days:

And, would wait to post this until Monday or Tuesday, but the cool pics keep stacking up. If I wait any longer, this post won’t load. So, without me making this post any longer with boring words, let’s get to the snapshots:

Mongrels isn’t only with a book about the Black Hills, but . . . see how that’s where this wolf is going? He knows where’s good. He knows where matters.

Mongrels Q&A

I mean, I figured SOMEONE needed to step up, answers all Mongrels questions. Then I figured, hey, wait: that’s me. So I did:

Werewolves & Me

Me in my office, playing with all things werewolf related. At least those I could reach without getting out of the camera’s eye. Also some talking, some reading, some injudicious swaying from side to side, like I just spilled koolaid on the couch but nobody knows about it, and I really-really need to get outside, like acres away, and play for about fifty-four hours:

Werewolves out in the World, part II

This is the second batch of these. First’s here. So let’s start with:

Thanks to Lesa Pascavis Smith on facebook for that. I dig how nervous the werewolf is—how not to be, right?

Little Shop of Stories stands Mongrels up on the table, even:

How Mongrels looks with cool boots:

How it looks while being read:

How it looks on a t-shirt (there were six or eight copies of Mongrels printed up way before the ARCs, and this is pretty much the covers they had):

Mongrels Promotional Fallout

Screen Shot 2016-05-19 at 4.58.53 PM

Was supposed to be just, you know, fun. But then the news services got hold of it:

I don’t even know if it finally sold any Mongrels, really.

And here’s a grab from the Daily Mail—much the same, just, without the Newcastle Beerwolf:

Werewolves in London

And all the English-speaking places over there—Aus, NZ, wherever. Turkey too, soon, but I haven’t seen that one yet.

Anyway, to proper-launch Mongrels over there, SciFiNow talked about Mongrels—so cool:

    A Werewolf Playlist

    Not what I listened to while Mongrels-writing, but some songs that synch up well with Mongrels, I think. Which you can cue up just on Spotify, here*. Also, before I get to annotating and embedding and pulling my hair about because the versions I want aren’t available, etc, I also put together a Youtube playlist—different stuff, same vein—here* (also, no guarantees there isn’t a bit of overlap between Youtube and Spotify—I get really clicky about werewolf songs).

    What a Werewolf Drives

    There came a point in writing Mongrels where I realized, DUDE: you can’t have them driving a Buick in two chapters in a row! Werewolves don’t have brand loyalty, they drive whatever’s at hand. So began what I call the travails: google-image searching for like two bleary-eyed, numb-fingered days, until I’d not only put all the Chevrolets the proper distance from each other, but I’d set eyeballs (these) on pretty much the exact car for each chapter. However, do a count? You’ll see there’s more cars than chapters, here. Reason: there’s a couple of dupes. Also, there’s a Very Important Hot Wheel. Also, Darren doesn’t just drive a single truck through the whole novel. Doing that’s asking the world to figure out you are what you are. Also—still talking why there’s more cars than chapters—in some chapters, there is more than one car. Also also also: one or two of them, I wanted to be sure to have a couple angles on the car, to be sure I was doing it right on the page. Too? With the two El Caminos there (not the same car), how could I be asked to pick just one? Nobody can pick just a single El Camino, when their stated task is to pick the perfect El Camino. Simply put, there’s just too many perfect El Caminos out there.

    Werewolves out in the World, part I

    Didn’t think to start nabbing these pics until a day or two ago, so I’m sure there’s a lot of great and perfect ones out there. And, hope I’m not stepping on any toes, reposting them. If so, let me know? I’ll delete, or crop your name out (or mine?). Just snagged them off social media, usually. Twitter (#), Litsy, FB, maybe another place or two, who knows.

    Anyway, in no kind of order, and with the poster’s name when I could screencap it in:
