I ran a few passages from my current piece through iwl.me, a site that purports to tell you who you write like. I got Cory Doctorow and Agatha Christie once each. Anne Rice came up for most of the chapters I pasted. I don’t know how accurate it is, but it’s a fun little toy. I’ve never read any books by those authors.
My new one, which may or may not read like Anne Rice, should be out in a couple weeks. It’s about a small-time drug dealer and amateur entomologist who buys a mysterious bug off an Internet black market known mainly for its wide selection of intoxicants. Things go wrong.
Here’s an interview I did with a book blog. It touches on fidget spinners, books, writing, and MTV’s Teen Mom.
