Tour Kick Off - Meet and Greet - Speakeasy by A.M. Dunnewinn

Historical Fiction / Thriller
Date Published: December 26, 2011

The novella is centered on Eddie Durante, owner of a speakeasy that's supported by Eddie's mobster uncle, the boss of the Durante family. The back story is that Eddie is a young widower after his family's rival, the Caprice family, murdered his wife over a territory dispute. After devising a plan that retaliated against four of the rivaling capos, Eddie is left with the daunting task to try and move on, until a family member notifies him that the Caprices have put a hit man in the speakeasy - and Eddie's name is on the list. But things take an unexpected turn when Eddie and his close friends start to find the dead bodies of Eddie’s relatives, the ones who had helped in the retaliation.
     Behind the backdrop of the jazz music and glistening flappers, murder after murder begins to unravel as revenge takes center stage, and Eddie soon learns that some secrets can’t be taken to the grave.

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?

Definitely. I have a lot of story ideas, and I literally feel like I'm going mad if I don't get them down on paper. Despite how weird that sounds, I love every minute of it.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?

Actually the writing process was easy. It was editing and formatting for publishing that was difficult. I felt like I was trying to be a computer programmer. 

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?

My amazing fellow author, Gina Scott. She helped me in more ways than she thinks. 

#4 – What is next for your writing?

Once my current novel, The Benighted, is done editing, I'll start working on its sequel. We'll see how far I get since I have another novella trying to steal my attention.

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?

Oh yes, and it's a manic addiction that never goes unnoticed when I'm walking out of the bookstore with my arms filled with books. I'm currently reading a few books interchangeably, depending on my mood. But the one that stands out is Ireland's Pirate Queen: The True Story of Grace O'Malley by Anne Chambers. Its very interesting.
