Video Event: Reading from EVERYONE PAYS at Borderlands Books, San Francisco
Sunday, July 24, 2016: I read from EVERYONE PAYS at Borderlands Books in the Mission, still my favorite bookseller this side of the sun. They’re great and have always supported writers, podcasters, podcasting writers, and everything important in the world. Whenever you come through San Francisco stop in, buy books, tell ’em YOUR BOY sent you.
Lots of great friends, fans, folks came out to this event and stuck around for some awesome Q&A, booksigning, and general love. Many thanks to all of you in attendance!

The lucky patrons at my all-time favorite bookstore: Borderlands Books will also get to ask YOUR BOY those burning questions and get that custom book inscription which makes all my novels just that much more special on your bookshelf!

Thanks to Paul Vogelzang for having me on his show!
It was great to sit down with Paul Vogelzang, the host of “Not Old–Better“, and talk about my newest crime novel EVERYONE PAYS. We also talked about podcasting, teaching, the successful processes of a professional writer and other career path trivia. Good times!
Paul’s got a great audience and I’m very happy to post this interview for both our followers! If you’re new to this blog: Join the Nation (my mailing list) and I’ll send you my Crime Blotter! It’s full of regular updates and news straight from YOUR BOY’s mouth!!
I’M BACK!… with more from my live event at the Mysterious Bookshop this past May. New York City’s famous Mysterious Bookshop is your home (and mine) for all things crime fiction, and a regular stop on any crime novelist’s book tour. We had a great time that night that included a wonderful discussion about the writing process and craft, as well as how I created my newest characters: Clara Donner and Danny Hendricks. If you already have your copy of EVERYONE PAYS you know whom I’m talking about, if not go get your copy today!
What do the first American Private Eyes have in common with classic Jordan “retro” sneakers?
I’m glad you asked, because that’s where I start in my newest essay featured in this month’s edition of Crimespree Magazine. Entitled “From Gunshoes to Gum Soles and Dicks to Kicks”, it’s now available for your inquisitive mind over at: CrimespreeMagDotCom. Read it today, online or wait for the Crimespree Magazine dead-tree edition, to be available in stores near you real soon.
I’ll tell you a secret: you should check out those folks over at Crimespree Magazine. They’re the best at covering my understanding of the World of Crime Fiction. It’s my crime fiction and they’ve got it covered.
Back to my news! In my essay, “From Gumshoes to Gum Soles and Dicks to Kicks”, I get into my own interest in Jordans. How my interest came about and just how many I currently own. What role they play in my writing process? How new protagonist Clara Donner wears her Jordans out on the courts of San Francisco when she plays pickup.
I hope you’ll give it a look over at Crimespree Magazine. Tell ’em YOUR BOY sent you!
The 1995 Classic Jordan XI, the shoe Michael Jordan wore during his BEST NBA SEASON (and my personal pick for best all-time sneaker) goes on sale tomorrow! “Hallelujah!” says this Revivalist… who’s very much interested in purchasing his own pair of the new Navy with GUM SOLES! But good luck buying yourself a pair. These Jordans are a limited release and only a handful of pairs will be sold off to drawing winners!
MAY 12, 2016 — Seth Harwood reads from EVERYONE PAYS at Boston’s Noir @ the Bar
Trident Booksellers & Cafe’s ongoing author appreciation events bring a new installment to the long running national series Noir @ the Bar. Listen as Seth takes to the podium to read from the newest crime novel: EVERYONE PAYS.
This podcast features Chapter One of EVERYONE PAYS, taking you along for a homicide investigation into one of the city of San Fransisco’s uglier cases. Meet my newest protagonist: Clara Donner — Detective with the San Fransisco Police Department.
What’s in a name? Coming up with the title for EVERYONE PAYS.
I’m often asked how I come up with my book titles. For my newest novel: EVERYONE PAYS I had no shortage of ideas. Ultimately, one of the main characters from the novel led the way. In Chapter Nine, Father Michael is walking the streets of the Tenderloin and one particular phrase from his internal monologue stood out from all the other possibilities.
That’s where it came from, but you’ll have to read Chapter Nine to get the full context as to why this became my book title. Of course, EVERYONE PAYS wasn’t the only title in the running before publication. If you’re interested in learning a little about my creative process and my thoughts about choosing this title, check out this post. It’s a list of all my alternate book titles, and the full story of how EVERYONE PAYS earned its name.
YOUR BOY reading from EVERYONE PAYS!! (Of course!!)
No need to stay up late! Or make a trip to NYC… or even leave your computer!
On Friday May 6, 2016 the purposeful visitors and unbidden patrons of The Mysterious Bookshop in lower Manhattan had the singular opportunity to hear a teasing selection from my new novel. We love those folks at The Shop!! Thank you all for hosting my reading and meet-up! And special thanks to everyone who came out to see YOUR BOY, those who ordered signed copies, and those who generally like a good author event!
