Writing with Joe Ide

Join Joe Ide on Thursday, 10/29 at 6PM on Crowdcast.

Joe will be talking about writing series fiction and writing in general.  

Smoke is the latest in his series featuring Isaiah Quintabe (IQ).  

After having to postpone our event with Joe Ide back in March, we are thrilled to finally be hosting him!

"I don't know how fast Joe Ide writes, but from now on he'll have to write faster. Everyone who reads IQ will be clamoring for the next book, and for the one after that. This is one of the most intriguing--and appealing--detective characters to come along in years." —Carl Hiassen

About the Book:

Isaiah is no longer IQ, the genius of East Long Beach; instead he’s a man on the road and on the run, hiding in a small Northern California town when his room is broken into by a desperate young man on the trail of the state’s most prolific serial killer.
 
Dodson must go straight or lose his wife and child. His devil’s bargain is an internship at an LA advertising agency, where it turns out the rules of the street have simply been dressed in business casual, but where the aging company’s fortunes may well rest on their ability to attract a younger demographic. Dodson – “the hustler’s hustler” – just may be the right man for the job.
 
Ide is the crime writer’s crime writer, and he’s filled his best novel with desperate souls, courageous outcasts, an ex-stripper who’ll do anything to protect her son, and half-brothers who may be the very incarnation of evil. Filled with deft plotting, lacerating humor, and a keen eye for the ways in which characters rise or fall based on their ties to one another, SMOKE is Joe Ide’s crowning achievement.

About the Author:

Joe Ide is of Japanese American descent. Growing up in South Central Los Angeles, Joe's favorite books were the Conan Doyle Sherlock Holmes stories. The idea that a person could face the world and vanquish his enemies with just his intelligence fascinated him. Joe went on to earn a graduate degree and had several careers before writing his debut novel, IQ, inspired by his early experiences and his love of Sherlock Holmes. Joe lives in Santa Monica, California.
