Welcome to the Ink Heist podcast, which is devoted to dark genre fiction, featuring hosts Rich Duncan, Shane Douglas Keene, Laurel Hightower and a whole bevy of authors and other interesting guests for your listening and enlightening pleasure. We are a very irreverent, often linguistically explicit broadcast so we highly recommend you use discretion when listening around easily influenced young ones or anyone who is easily offended. We would like to thank the band Secret Smoker for allowing us to use their song “Crushed by Air” to kick-off and finish the podcast.
This week, we’re excited to welcome Glenn Rolfe to the show to celebrate the release of his latest novel, Until Summer Comes Around, which is out now through Flame Tree Press. Until Summer Comes Around is a perfect summer read as Glenn sets his story in Old Orchard Beach and infuses the magic of summer vacation throughout the course of the novel. When Rocky meets November, the two quickly fall for each other and are determined to make the most of their time together. However, November’s family harbors a dark secret that threatens to destroy their relationship. There are a lot of Joyland vibes in Until Summer Comes Around, so if you loved the atmosphere of that book, definitely pick up a copy of Rolfe’s latest. During the course of the episode, we discuss his start in publishing, pitching revisions on the fly, the creative process, Old Orchard Beach, punk rock, Don D’Auria, and so much more.
