Some facts you might not know about speculative fiction writer K.W. Taylor:
- Like me, she is from Dayton, Ohio. By law, all Dayton writers must go by their initials for publication.
- Her adorable tabby cat Dharma and my blue-point Siamese Alex are having a sordid long-distance romance.
- In our spare time, we front a postmodern industrial synth band as K-Dub and DJ Scribbles, featuring all of the Dog Star Books authors (with Matt Betts on bass, Albert Wendland on key-tar, and K. Ceres Wright on drums).
Okay, that last one might not be entirely true.
So, here’s the good news! K.W. Taylor is now officially part of the Dog Star Books/Raw Dog Screaming Press family! From the official blog post: “RDSP is happy to announce that we’ve signed K.W. Taylor’s time travel novel The Curiosity Killers for release in 2016 under the Dog Star Books imprint.”
Like my own Steel Victory, it was her thesis novel for Seton Hill University’s Writing Popular Fiction graduate program. I first heard K.W. read the first chapter of The Curiosity Killers at a writing retreat last spring, and I have been dying to read more ever since. I’m a big fan of her protagonist Sam Brody (of The Red Eye), and I know that I will be just as entertained by Ben Jonson!
