Promotional: Cristina Martin, Author Interview

28 11 2012

Cristina Martin, the author of The Automat is stopping by this week to do an author interview at

Cristina Martin was born in Miami, Florida in 1978. When she was 10 years old, her goals were to write a book, show her art in a gallery, and move out of Miami. She accomplished all three goals by the age of 32, and then some!

Cristina spent 5 long and arduous years living in New York City, where she showed her artwork and began writing “The Automat.” She moved to Los Angeles, where she currently resides with her husband and son.  Her hopes are to one day become a writer for a sitcom with a memorable theme song featuring a strong bass guitar.

The Automat is a fictional story exploring the dark side of human nature and the innate desire of being loved. It is a story of unexpected change in the routine of one’s simple life, of obsession, guilt, and the consequences of betrayal. The Automat will appeal to readers of literary fiction with dark undertones.
The Automat is a story of Horace Gray, a dispirited introvert, who takes notice of a mysterious set of eyes that stare at him from behind the Automat wall. Horace sets out on his own adventure to meet the woman behind the automat wall, and ultimately understand her motives. He soon finds himself obsessed with his new pursuit as everything else around him becomes inconsequential.

Promotional: Correction Line, A Book Review

21 11 2012

This Saturday, Charles Henry Editing is launching a weekly book review series! Our first book is Correction Line by Craig Terlson.

Craig Terlson’s fiction has appeared in Carve, Hobart, Smokelong Quarterly, Bound Off, 3:AM, Slow Trains Literary and many other literary journals in the United States, United Kingdom, and South Africa. Correction Line is Terlson’s first novel,  and it looks like a doozy.

Here is a brief description of Correction Line from

If not for the sharp curves of prairie correction lines, grid roads would converge into one point. When encyclopedia salesman Roy Blake meets Lucy, an ex-palmist living in a secluded house, he hits a different sort of curve. After a failed sales visit, Roy returns to find the house trashed and her dog tied up in the basement. Just as he discovers a shelf of glowing mason jars, two men carrying shotguns arrive and start smashing furniture upstairs. Before the men can flush him out of the basement, a chemically induced explosion levels the house and Roy barely escapes. Lucy pulls Roy into a world of bowling hustlers, Cuba-loving assassins, strange healing liquids, and guys that take baseball way too seriously. Curve balls meet curved roads, and Roy hits a correction line that will drive him toward a man who controls an entirely different salesforce.

19 11 2012

This Friday, November 23rd, Charles Henry editing is interviewing writing duo: Karen Wodke and PJ Hawkinson! This writing duo has produced twelve works together and several solo works. We will be asking them about their writing process; their two newest books: Zeke, and, Tangerine.

‘Zeke is a dark novel of sexual obsession, psychological manipulation, and looming peril.

A naive college student falls for the new clerk at a local store. Captivated by his brooding good looks and menacing but irresistible charisma, she leaves herself wide open for exploitation and agrees to leave town with him. As they travel, his behavior grows more deviant and increasingly volatile.

Her parents’ concern leads them to hire a small-town PI, who begins his inquiry with only two objectives: first, to verify that her departure is voluntary, and second to ascertain her whereabouts. A simple case; however, he soon finds himself locked into a chase to save her life. Will he find her in time or will she become another victim of a cunning sociopath?’

Sounds good, right? If you would like to read Zeke
