Hendricks in the Austin Chronicle

Today, the Austin Chronicle's Wayne Allen Brenner highlighted THE KILLING KIND and RED RIGHT HAND alongside fellow Mulholland author Joe Ide's IQ in his feature about thrillers that'd make killer presents. To say I'm honored is an understatement—and the fact that Brenner's piece crackles with style and wit makes his praise doubly satisfying. Thanks, Wayne. Glad you dug 'em.

Appearance: Letterpress Books, 11/26

This Saturday, 11/26, is Small Business Saturday. Conceived as something of an antidote to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it's intended to encourage holiday shoppers to buy local.

Personally, I think it's a terrific idea... which is why you'll find me at Letterpress Books in Portland's Northgate Plaza this Saturday from 12PM to 3PM.

This isn't a big, formal reading or anything. I'll just be hanging out, chatting, and signing books. Know someone who'd like a personalized copy of THE KILLING KIND or RED RIGHT HAND this holiday season? Swing on by! And if that someone is you, I promise I won't judge...

RED RIGHT HAND a Daily Express Best!

I'm chuffed (yes, chuffed) to report that the UK's Daily Express named RED RIGHT HAND a Best New Thriller! Here's a taste of what they had to say:
"RED RIGHT HAND is an explosive, fast-paced follow-up to THE KILLING KIND... With strong characters and a complex plotline, RED RIGHT HAND has the essence of a great action movie. Ultimately, Holm has done exactly what a good writer should do: he makes you desperate to know what’s coming next."
I confess, I didn't expect to find myself in a British tabloid today, much less that I'd be so happy about it. Oh, and don't take the fact that they also championed the Brexit as evidence my book is terrible; I'm pretty sure that wasn't their Arts Editor's doing.

Lovereading Reviews RED RIGHT HAND!

Author, editor, and critic Maxim Jakubowski was kind enough to take a peek at the UK edition of RED RIGHT HAND for Lovereading, and had this to say (click through to read the rest):
"Fast-paced, full of twists that ingeniously come together for a thunderous finale, this is commercial thriller writing at its best and grand entertainment."
He also featured it in this roundup of his favorite recent reads. Many thanks, Maxim! I'm so glad you enjoyed it.
