A Day in the Life with Aria Tortura

A look at Bert Shambles, from the woman who has to put up with him, over at Dru’s Book Musings.

Dru also had nice things to say about TIE DIED:

Poor Bert, he tries so hard. I like the author’s approach in the telling of this story and I can’t wait to see what befalls Bert in the next book in this terrific series.

TIE DIED Kindle Release Party – Today!

Today is the Kindle release date for TIE DIED, the second Bert Shambles adventure. To celebrate, I’m hosting an all-day Facebook event. TIE DIED is priced at only $3.99 so I hope you’ll consider getting a copy.

And if you want to get caught up on the Bert Shambles saga so far, you can always start with DEAD STOCK, the first book in the series, here.

If you prefer paper to pixels, there are also a limited number of Special Editions available, including the two books together for a special price.

TIE DIED Special Edition Now Available

The Special Edition of TIE DIED is now available! Each signed copy of the book comes with a signed, corrected manuscript page tipped in, as well as a glow in the dark guitar pick. Each order comes lovingly wrapped in groovy tie-dyed paper and hemp string. What else can I say except Far Freaking Out?! Click here for more info.


World of B.S. – Podcast episode 1

I’ve done a short (6 min) podcast that introduces Bert Shambles and tells a little about his backstory, and why he’s such an endearing character to me.

Advance Praise for TIE DIED

Tie Died is a trip through murder, mayhem, and the music scene of the sixties, and Tim Hall’s writing is as addictive as a catchy guitar riff. An entertaining tale told with warmth and wit.”

Diane Vallere, author of the Mad For Mod, Material Witness and Style & Error mystery series

TIE DIED now available at Amazon

The print version of my latest Bert Shambles Adventure, TIE DIED, is now available for purchase at Amazon. You can also pre-order the Deluxe Edition directly from me.

Noir @ the Bar – Queens Edition

I read at Odradek’s coffeehouse in Kew Gardens last night, alongside some of the best NYC crime writers working today. I chose an excerpt from “#MalthusianHarvesting”, my collaboration with S.A. Solomon for the upcoming Cannibal Cookbook anthology being edited by Dana C. Kabel. Official after-show photo:

One More Reason to Come to the Brooklyn Book Festival

I wanted to do something special for my upcoming appearance at the Brooklyn Book Festival, so I’ve created a card just for the show. There are only 50 available–each will be numbered and signed by me on the back. On the front is one of my paintings, which I do under the DECK1 handle.  The postcards will be free to the first 50 people who come by the MWA table between 11:30-12:30 on Sunday, September 21st.

I’ll also have limited copies of DEAD STOCK on hand. Each will come with an original manuscript page tipped in.

Front of card:
