I’m Writing, Are You?
Posted on: July 10th, 2013 by Anthony Rapino 7 Comments

I was sitting here in my office, getting ready to work on my second novel, when it occurred to me:  I haven’t posted a blog in weeks.  This is not an epiphany.  It’s something I consider nearly every day along with inquiries about strange growths on my head and research about elevated caffeine levels in […]

While I’m still jittery with morning coffee, I thought I’d post and let everyone (all five of you!) know that my debut novel SOUNDTRACK TO THE END OF THE WORLD is currently FREE on Amazon.  The free promo started yesterday and ends today (May 1st, 2013), so get it while you still can! It’s worth […]

Rising From the Deep
Posted on: March 25th, 2013 by Anthony Rapino

It seems I’ve let months pass between posts again. I could lie and say I’ve been hard at work on my second novel (The Shadows of Flies), but that’s not entirely true.  I’ve only been easy at work on my second novel.  There’s still much more to go. But I do have news.  First of […]

Jorge Garcia is Awesome
Posted on: October 18th, 2012 by Anthony Rapino 4 Comments

Continuing with my random editions of “So-And-So is Awesome,” today I tell you that Jorge Garcia is awesome.  But you probably knew that already. A few months ago, while browsing Mr. Garcia’s blog, I noticed he accepts fan mail, and–quite graciously I might add–sends out autographed photos to those who request it.  Being the peculiar […]

Blog Tour Day 5: Killer Tofu
Posted on: September 12th, 2012 by Anthony Rapino 2 Comments

Hi. Today’s blog tour stop is the supreme taco bean: Laurita Miller’s Calling Shotgun.  Laurita was kind enough to read and review my novel.  Here’s a taste: One of the first things I noticed about this book was the paper on which it is printed. It’s so smooth; I wanted to touch it with my […]

Blog Tour Day 4: Monday Madness
Posted on: September 10th, 2012 by Anthony Rapino

Happy Monday, good people of the interweb.  You may be asking yourselves, “Dear me.   Monday Madness?  What makes this Monday so mad?” Well, I’ll tell you.  Because I kicked him in the nuts.  I did it for no other reason than it being Monday, and perhaps to punish it for inspiring all those damnable Garfield posters.  But there […]

Blog Tour: Day 3

It looks like we’ve made it to the end of the first week of The Blog Tour to the End of the World!  For today’s mind-treat, I have a tantalizing guest post about hypnotism on Lee Widener’s NeverendingWonder.  You’ll also find the third game piece to the big contest.  In case you’ve missed any of the tour stops, you can  navigate to […]

Blog Tour: Day 2
Posted on: September 5th, 2012 by Anthony Rapino 2 Comments

Okay, so technically it’s not day two, it’s tour-stop two.  But I’ve already committed to the “day” titling, so we’ll all just pretend that it’s day two.  We are all dedicated fantasists anyway, so it should be a stretch. Today, to help swell your brains with nonsense, I am interviewed by Gongleby the Gnome and Blood Tongue, on Brent Michael Kelley’s […]

Blog Tour: Day 1
Posted on: September 3rd, 2012 by Anthony Rapino

Hey gang, Today is the first official day of the blog tour!  Unlike the kickoff day, today I’ll have a guest post available on Angela Addam’s website.  The post is about plotting and starts like this: My feelings on Plotting are best described thusly: screw that asshole.  Sorry to be so blunt, but we just don’t get along, […]
