I'm excited to announce that we will be doing another Bedtime Stories for Grown-Ups event! Join Chuck Palahniuk, Monica Drake and me in Bellingham, Washington, on April 24th, for an evening of drinking, inappropriate storytelling, and general anarchy. Tickets go on-sale April 6 at 10a.m. (Admission includes a signed hardcover of Monica Drake's brilliant new novel, The Stud Book). This event will sell out. And it will be epic. Also, we have all kind of awesome gifts for you. As usual, sleepwear is required. This is not for kids. They get enough bedtime stories. And they can't hold their liquor.
Chicago Sun-Times, by Denise I. O'Neal, 10.04.09 -- Cain is among a new breed of women writers stepping way out of the stereotypical female comfort zones of writing purple prose and chick lit, and instead serving up meatier and more gruesome stories.
NYTBR, by Maria Russo, 09.27.09 -- You have to hand it to Cain, who's made the serial-killer genre a thoroughly female-friendly experience. It's not just that Gretchen Lowell, the psycho killer at the center of Cain's thrillers, is a woman.
USA Today, by Carol Memmott, 10.01.09 -- Cain's wonderfully over-the-top series takes a new turn...It's not to be missed.
