I’m BC Brown and this is my media kit.
I give permission for any and all of the information below to be used to promote my books. I love blogs! I’m available for interviews and guest posts. You can leave me a note at my contact page.

Long Bio: 

BC Brown is a hybrid published author of six books.
Fantasy and mystery novelist
She released the A Chimerical World: Tales of the Seelie Court  in February 2015 to the delight of fantasy readers.
Her first book Sister Light, Book One: Of Shadows (published under the pen name B.B. Walter) released in Summer 2007 to rave reviews. Sister Light is no longer in print. BC is rewriting the novel for future release.
Her second book is different in tone. She released the paranormal mystery A Touch of Darkness in 2011 to the excitement of fans.
Her third book, A Touch of Madness, continued the Abigail St Michael Novels and met with rave reviews from fans in 2012.
Both of her paranormal mystery novels were published under Glorious Bastards Press, an author publishing collective with author and long time friend, J. Travis Grundon. BC was one of the first authors invited to participate in the publishing collective.
Under the publishing collective, BC participated in her first anthology collections, Fracas: A Collection of Short Friction and Quixotic: Not Every Day Love Stories, in 2011 and 2012 and took her first forrays into general fiction.
Praised for her heartbreaking and revealing true life inspired short story ‘Killing Innocence‘ in Fracas: A Collection of Short Friction, BC tackled terrifying insights about childhood, alcoholism, depression, and suicide from a child’s perception.
BC moved to Arizona in 2013, leaving the snow and flat horizons of the Midwest for blue skies and diverse geography. While she was sad to move away from many fans she saw frequently at festivals and conventions, she found an immediate home with the Central Phoenix Writers Workshop where she is an active critique partner. She also teaches other writers how to use social media for branding and book marketing. She was delighted to find a lively karaoke community willing to put up with a deaf wanna-be singer with a flair for theatrics.
Advocacy:
Homeless -#SandwichesInParks: A take-action initiative to help people experiencing homelessness in her own community, BC coordinates and delivers outreach to the people of Phoenix, Arizona weekly. Not part of any specific non-profit organization, she works with a small team of private volunteers to collect food, hygiene, and general needs like blankets and towels to distribute. Many of the non-profit organizations that participate in the program are part of the Arizona Friends of Homeless group.
Women’s Reproductive Rights – #IStandwithPP: In December 2015, BC and a few friends organized the Planned Parenthood Supporters of AZ, volunteers providing safety escorts to patients of the healthcare provider against abusive anti-choice groups in Tempe, Arizona. The group has now expanded to provide safety escorts of patients in Glendale, Arizona.
Despite the controversy of the topic, she remembers the medical care Planned Parenthood provided her when, at 18, a clinic in central Illinois found her pre-cancer. BC was uninsured at the time of its discovery, and Planned Parenthood coordinated medical care for her for a full five years when insurance would not cover her due to the preexisting condition. She remembers as she walked through the gauntlet of verbal assault outside the clinic. Her participation is a small way of thanking an organization that directly saved her life and indirectly saves the lives of millions of other women and, more so, an effort to protect the men and women who use Planned Parenthood from verbal and emotional abuse and harassment.

PRAISE FOR A TOUCH OF MADNESS:
“Everyone should buy this book. I have read it multiple times myself. I just adore this author.”
~Stacy Mccandless, editor
“Abbey is a character to love and be quite disgusted with at the same time. She has that fiery sarcastic attitude but also displays characteristics of someone who is obsessive compulsive, attention deficient and who lacks personal hygiene and healthy eating habits. These idiosyncrasies make her believable.”
~Amazon Reader

Book Summary:

The Fey have been with us since the beginning, sometimes to our great joy but often to our detriment. Usually divided (at least by us silly humans) into two courts, the first volume of A Chimerical World focuses on the Seelie Court: the court we humans seem to view as the “good” faeries. But “good” and “evil” are human concepts and as alien to the Fey as their mindsets are to us.

Inside you will find 19 stories that delve into the world of the faeries of the Seelie Court, from authors both established and new, including George S. Walker, Eric Garrison, and Alexandra Christian. But be warned: these faeries are nothing like Tinker Bell.

Book Summary:

Fracas: A Collection of Short Friction- This a collection of new trangsgressive fiction including Garrett Calcaterra, Joe Schwartz, John F.D. Taff, J. Travis Grundon, Scott Lefebvre and many more.

Transgressive fiction is a genre of literature that focuses on characters who feel confined by the norms and expectations of society and who break free of those confines in unusual and/or illicit ways. Because they are rebelling against the basic norms of society, protagonists of transgressional fiction may seem mentally ill, anti-social, or nihilistic. The genre deals extensively with taboo subject matters such as drugs, sex, violence, and crime. The genre has been the subject of controversy, and many forerunners of transgressional fiction, including William S. Burroughs and Hubert Selby Jr., have been the subjects of obscenity trials. Other prolific authors of this nature include J.G. Ballard, Charles Bukowski, BretEaston Ellis, Chuck Palahniuk and Elizabeth Young.

Transgressional fiction shares similarities with splatterpunk, noir, and erotic fiction in its willingness to portray forbidden behaviors and shock readers. Some people have compared this literary style to the Grindhouse style of film making. Fracas: A Collection of Short Friction is designed to tap the new voices of transgressive fiction. These stories will leave an impression.
