I’m talking about CHICAGO BLUES, the new book out by T. Lee Harris. T is a long-time friend and fellow member of The Southern Indiana Writers. She’s the SIW artistic director and production manager, meaning she’s responsible for the good looks of SIW’s annual anthologies.
Besides being an artist and a computer whiz, T is a first-class fictioneer. Ever-modest, this is her official biography:
T Lee Harris is a writer and illustrator. A graduate of Indiana University, T has put her degree to good use when designing and publishing the Indian Creek Anthology series for the Southern Indiana Writers’ Group–using it to fan bacon smoke away from the smoke detector was merely an unexpected plus. T’s writing and artwork have appeared both in print and in various online venues including mystericale.com, Wildside Press’ Cat Tales 2 anthology and UntreedReads.com.
Let’s hear more about CHICAGO BLUES:
It started off as a routine night for jazz pianist BC Peale: hop on the Harley, hit a local bar and grab a quick bite before heading over to the Inferno Jazz Club. Unfortunately, the plans of even a 200+ year-old vampire can go seriously awry. Things go even farther wrong when retired football star turned undercover agent, Galen Miller, enters the picture, drawing Peale into a web of intrigue. Together, Miller and Peale must confront the modern day evils of the black market arms trade, organized crime and murder. It seems that every clue they follow leads them back to the mysterious crime boss known as Borgia and an ancient evil that threatens the city of Chicago itself and throws everything Peale thought he knew about himself into doubt.
Sounds good, eh? Well, I’ve read it, and I’m here to tell you: IT IS GOOD!
Hop on over to Amazon and pick it up:
You can thank me later.
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: If there were vampires in the city where you live, where would they hang out?

My bets are on the 21c, for the snooty ones; the NULU strip for the more adventurous (and nostalgic), where everything is both NU and old; White Castle, for a quick bite; Tommy Ray’s for jazz (and voodoo drinks); probably any of the many local taverns and neighborhood bars in Old Louisville; the century old Seelbach bar (Maybe); and anywhere on 4th Street Live! (the ! is obligatory)!
You know, of course, that I’ve given this some thought. I jus tlove local settings. Where would the vamps hang out in Corydon??

Oh, Jane, I KNOW you know where the vamps would hang out in Louisville — I’ve read your book! ~grin~ Drop a link in the comments, you shy thing, so people can find Callie London. Never mind, I’ll do it: When Push Comes to Shove, Book 1 of Callie London’s Vampire Adventures.
In Corydon, they’d hang out at Lisa’s Sports Bar, and Golf Shores Indoor Miniature Golf.
