Crime Capsule season 2
With the launch of today’s interview with Darren Edwards, Crime Capsule has officially begun its second season of broadcasts. We’re looking forward to bringing more true crime books from Arcadia Publishing and the History Press to our listenership, featuring new interviews with expert authors every week. This season will start off with a two-month series on the paranormal, so turn down the lights and tune in — and don’t blame us if you end up hiding under the bed!
Crime Capsule is available for listening on all major platforms and on EvergreenPodcasts.com.

Pour It and Poet (redux)
I’m delighted to be returning to Lafayette next Wednesday, August 10, to read once more at Beausoleil Books, in their wonderful monthly series of Pour It and Poet. As always, the reading starts at 7pm (ish), with a fantastic open mic afterwards. For more information, visit Beausoleil Books online, or better yet, stop in one of the best independent bookstores in Louisiana for more details.
