How to Genre with #AxelHow – Coming soon!

The good folks at Opal POV magazine (who did a lovely cover feature on me in December 2015) have invited me to write a new monthly column on genre and all things authorly. The first one, entitled “What the hell is Noir anyways?” will appear in the June 2016 issue, which you can sign up for at www.opalpublishing.ca

As you no doubt have come to expect from yours truly, this will be a truly serious and classy affair. No bullshit. As you can see from the advertising below, which is in now way sanctioned, approved or permitted by the good folks at Opal Publishing.  Now go sign up for your FREE copy before I figure out how to use that finger proper-like!
