Point Blank Gets Profiled
The Louisville Courier-Journal has an article on Point Blank Press, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite publishers. I had never heard of them until I was lucky enough to run across a copy of Two Way Split on a library shelf a few years ago. They've got some great titles, including Cocaine and Blue Eyes and James Reasoner's brand new Dust Devils(which is incorrectly referred to as "Dust" in the article.) Dust Devils, as far as I'm concerned, is the best book of the year so far, and if you don't read it you're just cheating yourself.
Welcome to the Indie Crime Blog. As the name implies, this blog is dedicated to reviews of crime fiction published by independent presses. There are many books published every year that seem to be ignored for a variety of reasons. The books sections of newspapers are getting smaller. Bookstores give more shelf space to more established authors. I could go on, but you get it.My intent is to review books both old and new in the hopes that some deserving writers and worthy publishers will gain some exposure.
