Craig Clevenger - MOTHER HOWL

Available 6/13 in paperback and ebook

The mother of all book releases!

This is a party I’ve been anticipating for some time, now. Craig Clevenger’s third book, MOTHER HOWL, has arrived! For those of us who are familiar with Craig, we know that this is a big moment. For people new to his writing, you’re in for a transformational experience!

We sat and talked for a while about MOTHER HOWL and the themes found in the book. Conversation wandered to the short film SMOKE & MIRRORS, which was adapted from a part of the book.

Craig answered some listener questions, including talking about his short stories, and tackling the topic of him being (mis)labeled “transgressive”. Oh! And we talked about his pandemic-era series of writer’s workshops with some serious heavy hitters.

It’s always a huge pleasure to talk to Craig, and I hope you enjoy this discussion as well. Below, I’ve gathered links to Craig’s available short stories (that I’m aware of), AND to the videos that exist from Craig’s writer interview series.

Time to explore the world of Craig Clevenger. Enjoy!

Your first look at upcoming books!
My goal with the ARC Party is to connect readers with books before they release! Much of the success of a new book is connected to pre-orders and early sales numbers, but sometimes people don't hear about a book until long after it's been released.
An episode typically consists of an author giving a quick description of their book, followed by a spoiler free discussion about it. We often talk about themes, characters, settings, etc. But I'm careful to not talk about anything that would ruin the reading experience!
